2) YORICK BROWN


Already dead by the time of his appearance in ‘Hamlet,’ Yorick is the former court jester to the king.  His skull prompts the melancholy Dane to exposit on the nature of existence and mortality, something that Yorick Brown would appreciate.  As the last living male human on Earth, he is forced to make his way through a world that forces him to ruminate on existential themes.  Being a bit of a know-it-all, Yorick would also want you to know that the line about his Shakespearean counterpart is NOT “I knew him well”, but “Alas, poor Yorick… I knew him, Horatio.”  #TheMoreYouKnow

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
