Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "How's this for a high concept guaranteed to put kick into a hoary genre? A costumed superhero retires from glamorous crime fighting to successfully campaign for the mayoralty of New York. That's Ex Machina, and Vaughan makes the most of the concept via an intriguing, achronological structure that juggles Mitchell Hundred's short, unsuccessful superhero career, his uphill election campaign, and his early days in office, when he is faced with quandaries political--he catches flack for performing a gay marriage ceremony--and otherworldly--the subway is terrorized by a strange being that appears to be connected to the mysterious event that gave Hundred the power to control machines. Vaughan handles political machinations as credibly and entertainingly as the larger-than-life elements. Ex Machina shares many of the strengths of Vaughan's similarly provocatively premised Y: The Last Man, including vivid characterization and very credible realization of an outre set-up. Thanks largely to artist Tony Harris' stylish realism, however, it outshines its predecessor. --Gordon Flagg Copyright 2005 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "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.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
