* YTheLastMan begins with Yorick in a straitjacket (practicing to be an escape artist) while on the phone to his girlfriend, asking her if she knew that Elvis had a stillborn twin brother. In the last issue, he poses the same question to [[spoiler: one of his clones, who doesn't even know who Elvis is]]. He's in a straitjacket again, this time because [[spoiler: he's been placed on suicide watch]].
