Official Press Release
This special edition reprints the Eisner Award-nominated debut issue of EX MACHINA, written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Tony Harris & Tom Feister. It features a sensational brand-new sketch cover by Harris.
“Tony, Tom, JD and I spent almost a year developing every aspect of this first issue, and we’re still tremendously proud of it,” says Vaughan. “I’m very grateful to all the readers and retailers who’ve been so supportive of our series, and to everyone at DC and WildStorm for going to such amazing lengths to get the book into even more new hands.”
Check out what the critics are saying about EX MACHINA:
“Brian K. Vaughan’s masterful mix of super-heroics with politics blends seamlessly into an engrossing tale of power versus super-powers, with a city of 10 million caught in the middle.” – Wizard
“Terrifically intriguing.” – Entertainment Weekly
“Intertwines super-powers with nasty backroom dealings and quirky N.Y. political history” – Washington Post
“Set somewhere between The West Wing and an alternative future, this tale asks the question: What if the mayor of New York was a super-hero? Vaughan (Y: THE LAST MAN) and Harris (STARMAN) answer with intelligence and dash… This vastly entertaining first collection should have readers eager to read future volumes.” – Publishers Weekly
“[EX MACHINA] has become a surprise hit.” – New York Daily News
“Engaging… a fun ride.” – New York Resident
“The book is sprinkled with fascinating tidbits about the history of New York amidst a sea of everyday issues that Hundred and his staff have to deal with, from trash-transfer stations to a difficult governor… one of the best comics to come out in a good while…” – Nashville City Paper
“Inventive.” – The Newark Star Ledger
