Read full description of the books Ex Machina, Vol. 7: Ex Cathedra:Ex Cathedra started out so promising but with only three volumes left I'm beginning to worry about Vaughn's ability to bring this saga (see what I did there?) to a close. Mayor Hundred travels to the Vatican to meet the Pope while Russians are plotting to hack his brain in an attempt to get him to assassinate the Holy Father.
While the art is sufficiently trippy, the substance comes up short. The Vatican's astronomer could've been an interesting character as a man of faith and science. He even wonders if Mitch might be the Antichrist, and that could've been a great opportunity to explore why people fear what they don't understand. But that's all brushed aside fairly quickly.
I guess I'm disappointed in how the last few volumes has failed to move the overarching plot forward at all. Remember how Kremlin and January are secretly working to undermine Mitchell's administration in an attempt to get him to suit up again? That was introduced three volumes ago and there's been absolutely no payoff or forward progress whatsoever. I wouldn't mind Vaughn taking these little detours so as long as the main story doesn't stall or spin its wheels but that's what's been happening.
Ultimately we'll see how the whole thing closes out, but if Vaughn can't stick the landing (and I'm starting to worry he won't) then sadly this will be a memorable if somewhat half-baked series.
Read information about the authorBorn in Cleveland in 1976, Brian K. Vaughan is the Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster Award-winning writer and co-creator of the critically acclaimed comics series Y: The Last Man, Runaways, and Ex Machina (picked as one of the ten best works of fiction of 2005 by Entertainment Weekly).
Recently named "Writer of the Year" by Wizard Magazine, and one of the “top ten comic writers of all time” by Comic Book Resources, Vaughan’s work has been featured and/or reviewed in countless mainstream media outlets, including The New York Times, MTV, National Public Radio, and feminist magazine Bust, which photographed him for their “Men We Love” issue (don’t ask).
As an undergraduate film student at New York University, Vaughan got his big break as part of Marvel’s Stanhattan Project, a workshop for aspiring comic book writers. In the ten years since, he has written nearly all of the major DC and Marvel characters, everyone from Batman to the X-Men.
In September of 2006, Vertigo released Vaughan’s first original graphic novel, Pride of Baghdad, lavishly illustrated by artist Niko Henrichon. Inspired by an unbelievable true story of four lions who escaped the Baghdad Zoo during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Pride is equal parts anthropomorphic adventure and Animal Farm-like parable about the ongoing conflict in Iraq, and was described as "the best novel so far" about the war by the UK's Telegraph.
Along with his creator-owned work, Vaughan is currently writing The Escapists, a Dark Horse miniseries inspired by Michael Chabon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, as well as a new Doctor Strange limited series for Marvel with artist Marcos Martin.
This summer, the new WGA member/CAA client transplanted his poor playwright wife to Los Angeles, where Vaughan is currently working on the screenplay adaptations of Y and Ex Machina for New Line Cinema, as well as other new creations in film and television.
