”This is the story of my four years in office, from the beginning of 2002 through the godforsaken 2005.

“It may look like a comic, but it’s really a tragedy.”

— From Ex Machina#1

What would really happen if a superhero went into politics?  In 2004, comic fans found out.

Brian K. Vaughan and Tony Harris’ Ex Machina took us to a New York City separated from our own by the presence of one very unique individual – Mitchell Hundred, a civil engineer granted the ability to communicate with machines in a strange accident.  

Part one of our three-part look back at the series, complete with original art by Pia Guerra, starts here!
