Mitchell Hundred is a superhero who is responsible for saving one of the Twin Towers from the terrorist attack on 9/11.
If that wouldn't get a guy some decent voter turnout in a Mayoral election, I don't know what would...
This I will completely agree on. It seems like Vaughan goes far out of his way to come up with really distinct names for his characters, but they usually wind up being TOO distinct, to the point of sounding cheesy.Originally Posted by xadrian
Again, I'll agree. I enjoy the art on the book, and I enjoy the art of others who do the same sort of thing (like Tim Bradstreet), but photo-referencing every panel is less impressive than just being able to draw that well. But hey, it looks good in the end, and it's not going to make me stop buying the book, so whatever.Originally Posted by xadrian
Anyway, "Ex Machina" isn't one of those books you just HAVE to get everyone you know to try... at least not to me. It's good, and it has its flaws, but it's worth a read if you're looking for something a little different in the "real-world superhero" genre.
