It's the story of a mysterious plague that sweeps the earth, instantly killing every man (and male beast) -- except one: Yorick, the son of the ranking woman Congresscritter who has become the President of the United States (oh, and his pet monkey). From this fast setup, the story turns into a cracking adventure tale that's thoughtful and exhilerating, funny and sad, mean and joyous. It's one of about five comics I really look forward to every month (others include Warren Ellis's must-read Global
Crossing Frequency (thanks, PartTimeSaint) and the Legends book).
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
