Brian K. Vaughan is a cruel, cruel man

I just finished reading Y: The Last Man #58, and I had to blog about it, if only just to say "AAAARGH!" in a manner that will avoid waking up my wife. I won't spoil anything for anybody who hasn't read it, but the ending literally left me aghast. I can't believe he would do something so drastic, so mean, so...upsetting. Damn you, Vaughan!

Really, it's a testament to his skill at building characters and making readers like me like them so much. When something like this happens, it has a real emotional impact. But still...damn. I think I'll go cry myself to sleep now.

And that's enough emo from me, I think. I'll be out of town this weekend, so no blogging until Sunday night, I expect. See you then!
