Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Ex Machina is Spin City meets Watchmen, and it transcends the comic genre with its realism and relevance, while managing to never take itself too serious. If that's not appealing enough for you, Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man) is the writer and Tony Harris (Starman) does the pencils.

It's a character-driven series that chronicles the life of Mitchell Hundred aka The Great Machine, the world's only superhero, who in the wake of his actions on 9/11 was elected NYC mayor. The story is set during Hundred's term in office with interwoven flashbacks to his past as a crime-fighting vigilante. It explores political situations while the mysteries of Hundred's powers are slowly revealed.

The series is politically charged, and the main character doesn't always subscribe to the same logic and beliefs that the reader does. Hundred is an Independent, and part of the luxury of that is being conservative about some issues and liberal about others. But don't worry, there is no preachy or overt attempt to convert anyone to any political party or way of thinking. You don't have to agree with the main character's personal beliefs to enjoy the story.

Vaughan uses real-life events as source material, which I think makes the story more poignant and relevant. You might be surprised to know Harris uses actual models for the artwork.

Hands down one of the greatest writers in this medium. The themes, ideas and plot lines raised in this comic are some of the most compelling one can find in this medium or any other for that matter

Format: Hardcover
My feeling are the same for the third volume...The sci-fi elements of the story and the artwork could have easily earned this series a rating of 4 stars but all of the liberal propoganda espoused by the main character (a supposed independent) pulled this down to a 2. I understand that it is human nature for some of the writer's beliefs/viewpoints to come out in the story but here it is delivered with a sledgehammer and it constantly pulls you out of the story as the writer uses the main character to "preach" his viewpoint on various controversial topics.

Also if you are sensitive to foul language, be warned - this has plenty.
