Our celebration of the final issue of Y: The Last Man continues today. Click here and here for our interview with writer and co-creator Brian K. Vaughan.

Pia Guerra was virtually unknown as an artist before Y’s release…but that quickly changed. Her work on the book, with its realistic designs, fast-paced action and expressive faces, defined the look of the “Unmanned World,” and brought her to wide acclaim from both fans and pros.

We caught up with Guerra literally as she was penciling the final pages of Y: The Last Man #60. Over the course of our talk, Guerra revealed how the book affected her as an artist and a person, the research required to bring Yorick’s world to life, and which cast member was based on a Gray’s Anatomy star.
