    Vaughn has kept interest in this series high through strong characterization, regular hints and new mysteries, and, of course, embarrass-yourself-laughing humor. With Wildstorm's Ex Machina, Mr. Vaughn has two of the most engaging and entertaining comics on the shelves today. Anyone who loves social satire or science fiction in its most proper form should be reading these books. Read Full Review

    Pia Guerra turns in another fine issue as this is by in large a talking heads issue, where the art is called upon to convey the emotional impact of the issue's big revelation, and I have to say I loved Yorick's look of utter indignation on the credit page when he learns the reason for his survival. The art also does some lovely work on the scene where Yorick is reunited with his sister, as the panels leading up to the attack do a lovely job of showing the tension reaching it's boiling point. The art also turns in some nice work on the dream sequence as we see Hero is far from being in a healthy mental state, and I have to say I loved the final panels of this sequence, as Pia Guerra turns in a fun homage to the classic melting head scene from "Raiders of the Lost Ark. I also have to say I loved the cover image that this issue offers up, as not only is it a striking image, but it also manages to deftly hint at the big surprise without spoiling it for the readers.
