After completely reading Ex Machina twice, because frankly the first time confused me, I came to my own personal conclusion that it wasn’t as interesting as I thought it would be. The flashing back and forth had me lost the first time I read it, and I never really understood Kremlins role. Was he the father figure or more of a creator? I thought based on the first page with the picture of Mitchell and the plane, that Ex Machina would be more about the 9/11 tragedy than anything else but it was more about random crimes than 9/11 itself. Having to read the comic twice, I’m still fuzzy on how he got to have all these powers, and what the green box is. I found that the whole comic was a bit disorganized and confusing. Especially after reading Fables which I thought was more interesting than Ex Machina, especially since Fables was more organized and clearly stated than Ex Machina. One part of the comic that left me a bit more confused than the rest were the two ‘criminals’. Trista the artist of Abraham Lincoln the Nigger destroys her own painting, and then some young “kid” was the killer of the two drivers? I felt like it should have been the same person and in all honesty I was rooting for Kremlin to be the criminal. Everything that Mitchell and Bradbury stated that basically pinned him to the crimes made sense in my mind so I definitely thought it would be Kremlin. None of this comic made sense to me, I really need someone to explain this whole shenanigan to me further.
