Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
What would you do if a mysterious explosion left you with the ability to control machines? Become mayor of New York, of course. Mitchell Hundred gave up crimefighting years ago, and now fights evil with a pen and a mayoral seal. His mysterious power still comes in handy, though, especially when he can make the paparazzis' cameras jam or the neighbor's air conditioner stop rattling. But ever since his attempt to help fend off the September 11th attacks forced him to reveal his secret identity, things have gotten terribly complicated for Hundred. In this second volume we see him struggling with a political firestorm ignited by his open support of gay marriage at the same time that a mysterious presence is terrorizing New York's subways, leaving behind the horribly mutilated bodies of dogs and humans. Beside each gruesome discovery is a glyph linked to the explosion that gave Hundred his power. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man) and Harris (Starman series) have a created a compelling and completely original hero in Mitch Hundred. Ex Machina is half X-Files, half West Wing and 100% genius. The dialogue sparkles, the art beautifully conveys both Vaughan's horror and his humor, and the plot twists will have readers on the edge of their seats. For any fan of contemporary comics, Ex Machina is the series to read. (Oct.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Ex Machina continues on with its political climate centered around an alien twist. This second volume proves less entertaining than the first, choosing to focus less on Hundreds' colorful history and more on the technology that gave him his powers. The mystery is laid out in a very gripping way, however, and Vaughn is still able to surprise in the final issue. As far as the quieter, political moments, volume two remains interesting, offering up a very realistic, political take on gay marriage. Overall, this volume is of course worth getting, as is any part of Vaughn's wonderful epic.

    Brian K. Vaughan = comics gold!

    This is such a perfect blend of story and art with a terrific amount of politics and recent history to almost make you forget you're reading a comic book. The flashes to and from the present were done so well. My only slight complaint was this collection was too short. But, maybe that's just because I want more of a good thing.
