Luckily, Vaughan doesn't completely ignore the developments of last issue or the newly empowered Suzanne Padilla. Vaughan continues to build on the growing conspiracy against the mayor, which is good. But as for Padilla herself, I'm not quite sold on her new role. She seems a bit two-dimensional as a villain, and I hope Vaughan has bigger plans for her than this issue might indicate. The problem with knowing (more or less) how a series ends is that the climax is in constant danger of fizzling out. That said, this is Ex Machina we're talking about, and Vaughan has never given us any reason to doubt him on this book. As long as Vaughan and Tony Harris maintain their creative synergy in the remaining five issues, I see no reason not to expect a finale to rival Y: the Last Man. Read Full Review
