Comic book writer turned occasional “Lost” maestro Brian K. Vaughan apparently exists within the hit series’ universe now. The multi-talented comic book all-star behind the Vertigo series “Y: The Last Man” and “Ex Machina” has held such titles as producer, writer and executive story editor over the last few seasons, but this week, Hugo’s airport reading habits appear to have placed him firmly on the inside of the “Lost” universe.
On last night’s episode, titled “316,” Hugo was caught clearly reading a Spanish-language edition of “Y: The Last Man, Vol. 3: One Small Step” – or “Y, El Último Hombre” as it appeared on screen.
The comic book cameo was certainly a wink at Vaughan’s comic book fanbase, who cheered him on when he joined fellow comics scribe Jeph Loeb over at the “Lost” office for the show’s third season. But the plot of that particular volume of “Y” is worth keeping in mind, too.
