"I always wanted to create an ongoing comic with the scope of a novel like War and Peace. I can’t promise Saga will be that good, but it will definitely be at least that long. Stories about families usually are." -- Brian K. Vaughan

Ex Machina is IMO a great series, an interesting combination of superheroics and politics. For the most part I think the series is consistently good... with one exception.

This comes from the second Ex Machina special. I'm only posting two pages from this just in case anyone else wants to post stuff from the series at a later date. FWIW the following isn't a huge spoiler but it does reveal what was a 'cryptic background reference' for the beginning of the series.

Warning for some gore (heck that goes for the rest of the series -- I wouldn't say its up on the level of Garth Ennis, but when it gets gory it gets gory).

"As for the future, it’s been a huge honor to get work in film and television over the last few years, and I’m open to doing more down the line, but right now, I’d just like to concentrate on comics. Other than my family, nothing brings me more joy than making new shit, and I think there’s still no better visual medium to tell original stories than comics." -- Brian K. Vaughan

'There’s no such thing as a “good idea.” Last boy on earth and his monkey pursued by one-breasted women on motorcycles? Profoundly stupid idea. Romeo and Juliet as hipsters in space? Go fuck yourself. A dude in a jetpack saves one of the towers on 9/11? That’s borderline morally offensive.' -- Brian K. Vaughan

"It is comics like SAGA that get new readers in your door. I know this, because I have met SAGA readers. They read SAGA, they read RACHEL RISING, they read Julia Wertz, they read FABLES, they read Nicole Georges and Kate Beaton, they read Hope Larson, Jeffrey Brown, and LOVE & ROCKETS… They read all of that and more, but even better still: They are hungry for more. There is a vast and growing readership out there that is excited about discovering comic books, but as long as we continue to present comics to the world in the Biff Bang Pow! context of Marvel and DC, with shop windows full of pictures of Spider-Man and Superman, we will fail to reach it." -- Image publisher Eric Stephenson

"I’m obsessed with privacy and the troubling way some of us seem to willfully sacrifice it at the altar of social media. I wanted to write a story about a future where everyone has a secret identity, in part because the internet no longer exists." -- Brian K. Vaughan

Some pages from issue 4 of Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin's web-comic (available at http://panelsyndicate.com, where each issue can be purchased for as little or as much money as you'd like).

Back in ye goode olde days, Gotham villains didn't need no stinkin' telekinetic powers or rotting corpses to do their bidding. No, they got by through bein' tougher than the toughies and smarter than the smarties, and makin' it square. Well, as square as drug-running, arms-smuggling, "protection"-selling, and cold-blooded murder can be, anyways. Of course, the sheer snazziness of their character designs didn't hurt, either.

Like most of you, I imagine, I can't muster up any enthusiasm for the new Ventriloquist running through the pages of Gail Simone's Batgirl. As dull as I'd found Peyton Riley's story, I'd happily take her (preferably written by Paul Dini) over this SAW-wannabe any day.

But, as with many things in life, none can compare with the original.
