4.7 Panel

Ex Machina continues to impress. I'm not much into politics (though my dad is a poly sci major), but when you tell a story like Vaughn and throw in some of the best artwork on the market (pencils and coloring)... I'm hooked. I actually feel smart after i read Ex Machina each month.

Vaugn's found a way to creatively mix normally uber-boring politics with a dose of superhero fantasy; all while exploring one heavy subject after another (racism, terrorism, etc.) from multiple angles. Good stuff.

Reminds me (pleasantly) of West Wing w/ an extra-cool kick.

Wow... that panel is pretty shocking. And I'm talking shocking for a Wolverine comic. I'm guessing that's a fantasy sequence? (No need to spoil it; it is more of a rhetorical question.)

I only have the first trade of this series (so far). I haven't decided whether to go on with it yet or not.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
