Product Description


"The series, written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Tony Harris, follows Mayor Hundred as he retires from crime-fighting to pursue public office. While Ex Machina retains some superhero elements, the stories draw heavily on politics. Unlike Green Lantern, this hero has to worry about budgets, controversial art in public museums and debates over school vouchers."--The New York Times"Compelling entertainment with fiery thoughtfulness."--Entertainment Weekly"Fresh. . . poignant."--Playboy"Vaughn intertwines superpowers with nasty backroom dealings and quirky N.Y. political history."--Washington Post

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Machine is Back! 31 Dec 2009
By Joseph Prunty - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Brian K Vaughn & Tony Harris Ex Machina is nothing short of amazing, and should you not even be into graphic novels its definitely something even critics won't ignore. BKV has no fear of dealing with an alternate post 9/11 world, and add to the fact backs up a lot of excellent political what ifs. If you loved the first deluxe edition of the series, or even if your a fan who bought the monthlies or even the softcover trades these editions are excellent...they don't unforunately have the extras an absolute edition would give you, but its worth it at the price your getting it at. My biggest problem was the time between the first deluxe edition, and this edition. I mean literally it was from June 2008 till December of 2009. The comics were already written, so they shouldn't have had such a gap in time. Amazon has Ex Machina Deluxe Vol. 3 already, and its not far from being released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do not miss out on this! 24 Dec 2012

Ex Machina is a wonderful book filled with intellectual twists and turns. BKV doesn't fail to deliver. A must-read for any graphic novel reader!
5.0 out of 5 stars Brian K. Vaughn is my hero. 3 Jun 2014
By The Significant Pseudonym - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When you consider the fact that so many people have tried to infuse humanity into a superhero story before -- and how many have indelibly failed -- you can't really deny that Vaughan has hit a home run with this storyline. With an ear for dialogue that makes characters seem more legitimate than most and an eye for perfect timing that's just uncanny, Vaughan has crafted a story that has all the right elements for a late night drama as well as a high stakes nerd fest. Thanks for the stories (Saga lead me here)!
5.0 out of 5 stars The plot thickens 29 May 2014
By scwheeler - Published on
I'm very happy that WB finally decided to reprint this series, since I missed it when it first came out. Brian K. Vaughan is the master of writing 'comics.' He knows how to pace a comicbook like no ones business. All of his characters a diverse, in their racial ethnicity, and personality.

If you want an inexpensive, exciting, thick, and intriguing non Marvel/DC comic... buy this. Or wait for the "Y: The Last Man" paperbacks. Or buy both. 'Cause they are both amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read. Just do it, buy all 6 books and SAVOR them. It's a treat. 29 May 2012
By BilboSHAGGEMS - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It really is an amazing story.
For me, the most amazing feat of this is the artwork. Tony Harris is simply awesome, and his style lends itself to the "realistic" approach they strive for in the whole series. The writing is grand, and has alot of interesting ideas of the parallels in our world and the political going ons in the world Mayor Hundred inhabits.Brian K Vaughn explores the idea of society relying TOO MUCH on big brother and even mythologizing our world leaders while telling the story of our hero " The Great Machine " and his rise(then fall) of being NYC's first real superhero (after discovering a strange green beacon that exploded and granted him control over machines) and then rise to political aclaim.Just pop on all of them (don't do what I did and buy piecemeal at first). I'd read 1 a week (which was only to savor)-then wait untill the next arrived. At the end, I bought the last 3 together to avoid waiting.
