Ex Machina: Ring Out the Old (2010) Brian K. Vaughan, Tony Harris, Jim Clark, John Paul Leon, JD Mettler

Uhhh… What the hell was that?

There were so many different things I didn’t like about this volume. First and foremost was the meta “artists in the story” bit. Sorry BKV, but that was just a giant WTF? for me. It didn’t seem to add anything to the story. That started me off on a bad foot, and then the bits with Phearson didn’t help, since they didn’t seem to make a whole lot of sense either–especially the last bit that maybe was and maybe wasn’t a dream?

The only thing I really liked was the twist the major story arc took. Now THAT was fantastic.

So I have hope for the rest of the story, I just hope it makes more sense overall than this volume did.
