(1) "Smoke, Smoke"

The weakest "Ex Machina" arc so far, the trademark Vaughan writing is here, and so is the incredible art by Tony Harris, but the plot lines of Mitchell's powers & purpose takes a back seat to:

- a guy posing as a firefighter who breaks into people's homes. This constitutes the "mystery" part of the book, but it doesn't play a big aprt in the overall arc.

- January, blaming Mitchell for her sister's death (Journal, in the events of Ex Machina, Vol. 4: March to War) becomes an...more

I can't say anything here that I personally haven't already said before about this series. Its amazing. Brian K. Vaughan is one of two of the most amazing new writers in comics today (the other is Joe Hill). These Deluxe editions of this series are amazing, beautifully bound. I can't say anymore since I'm already gushing all over the place like a fanboy. Simply put, if you loved the other stuff before this you'll love this; and if you haven't read Ex Machina before, well then go start on #1 righ...more

Still one of my favorite current series being written but this was the let-down of the bunch. Granted it was still a fun read and I enjoyed the stories but when you're expecting an A and you get a B...you can't help but be disappointed.
