As a special addition to CBR's spotlight on "Ex Machina," the new DC

Comics/Wildstorm series from writer Brian Vaughan and artist Tony Harris,

CBR News is bringing you some exclusive pages from what promises to be one

of the big hits of the year. Thanks to Harris, you'll be seeing some color

pages from "Ex Machina #1" before anyone else, spotlighting the first time

that his Jolly Rogers studio has collaborated on all the visual aspects of

an ongoing series. Check out the pages and don't miss CBR's interview with

Vaughan and Harris, in which they shared this information:

"Set in our modern-day real world, 'Ex Machina' tells the story of civil

engineer and lifelong comics fan Mitchell Hundred, who becomes America's

first living, breathing superhero after a strange accident gives him those

proverbial 'amazing powers,'" explained Vaughan. "Eventually tiring of

risking his life merely to help maintain the status quo, Mitchell retires

from masked crimefighting and runs for Mayor of New York City, winning by a

landslide. And that's just the first few pages of Issue #1."

You can also bet that the art by Harris is going to shine. "I haven't loved

a project this much, or had as much invested in it, since 'Starman.' And I

know it shows on every page."
