Ex Machina seamlessly mixes complex and subtle political ideas with the best kind of superhero plots ones which spring out of the characters, their situations, their beliefs and their choices rather than an empty conflict with the generic villain du jour. Were barely a third of the way through the huge opus that Brian K. Vaughn has planned for this proposed 50-issue title, and I cant wait to see where Hundreds story goes next. March to War has the potential to be the books best arc yet, dealing with concepts on a global scale yet still managing to relate its larger ideas to a very personal and intimate story. Even though this is very much an issue of set-up, the possibilities for this arc are already looking very promising indeed. Well worth a read, even if you dont do politics. Read Full Review
A lot of people argue that politics have no place in Superhero comics; this book is a shining example of it working. Perfectly. Vaughan has taken on a massive task in this new story and so far handled it with his usual style and finesse. This can only lead to more great highs for the Great Machine and for those who may be thinking this book is getting a little bland, don't jump ship yet. It looks like the best is yet to come.
