Ex Machina is one of the best comics I've ever read!

I just started reading it the other day, up to issue 25 now. This is great stuff, probably Brian K. Vaughan's best work! Harris' art is awesome too.

Indeed, would highly recommend it to others wanting something different to read.

Yeah it's great, I've read some of Y, but never finished it and I love his episodes of LOST, so I figured I'd give it a shot and I'm loving it. I love politics so it's a great read.

It about a guy who gets the ability to control machines, he's the mayor of New York City too.

@ViciousCesar!: In a world without superheroes, one man gains the ability to talk to machines and attempts to be a superhero vigilante in New York City... after 9/11 he publicly unmasks and runs for mayor as a liberal leaning Independent and gets the position.  The story is mostly a political thriller about being in office, interspersed with relevant flashbacks to his vigilante days, and increasing threats- both mundane and extraordinary- as the series progresses. 
 
It is a Brian K. Vaughan independent work like Y: The Last Man, The Pride of Baghdad, etc. and is a complete story in 50 issues with a few short specials. 
 
The series is also pretty spoiler sensitive, in my opinion, so it's probably best to attempt to read the whole thing before venturing into discussion.  The entire series is to be hand in TPB format by the end of this month (only Volume 10 hasn't come out) and the Deluxe Hardcover Editions will be up to Volume 4 by the end of this month.  If you come across these at a comic book convention cheap snap them up.

Indeed it is hard to talk about it without giving too much away which is frustrating but honestly it is well worth it. Very clever story.

I have the first three trades mixed in with my comics but I admit I haven't begun reading yet...though knowing my love of Vaughan's Y: The Last Man, Swamp Thing and Pride of Baghdad, I know I'll love this
