Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Brian K. Vaughan has always impressed me and he does so again. Ex Machina is honestly a book I shouldn't enjoy. Essentially an animated look at politics with a slight superhero slant. Vaughan makes politics more interesting than any episode of West Wing. Tony Harris does an amazing job of capturing the fantastic but at the same time making everything real. At times I wish there was more exposition but the book is very good.
