Review: Ex Machina, Vol. 10: Term Limits


Ex Machina, Vol. 10: Term Limits
Ex Machina, Vol. 10: Term Limits by Brian K. Vaughan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After having read a fair bit of his work I can honestly say that when given a chance to bring a story to a natural conclusion Brian K. Vaughan knows how to finish a story. He did a great job of it with Y The Last Man, and he did a great job of it with Ex Machina. This volume was a perfect conclusion for the series, and he brought the story to an elegant conclusion.

Most would say that the sign of a good book is that when it is over you want more. In the case of Vaughan’s work I think that being able to say that you are satisfied, and the story is now over is a better example of the quality of his work. Anybody can keep churning out issue after issue, stringing a story along long past the point where it was actually interesting. It takes talent to know that a story has a finite limit, and to elegantly bring the story to that conclusion in such a manner that even the fans can look at it and know that it is done, and they are happy with how it ended. Too many times you never get that conclusion to a story because the book gets cut before the writer can wrap it up or because it just keeps going forever with no actual ending.

This story is now over, and while I don’t necessarily want more of this story I do want more of Vaughan’s work to read. Time to wander around and see what else he may have worked on that I haven’t already read…
