Read full description of the books Mystique, Volume 2: Tinker, Tailor, Mutant, Spy:It's amazing that Vaughan was writing this at the same time as Runaways, which was so clever, cute, and interesting. Or maybe it's not--maybe he was phoning this one in. Anyway, it's not entirely devoid of merit. There are some occasional humorous moments, but the plot is shallow, the story has none of the lovably flawed characters Vaughan usually writes, and there just isn't any hook to make this stand out from the hundreds of other Marvel C-list books.
Also, there's a pretty serious plot hole in the resolution of the first story (involving the Host's powers) and Vaughan's use of Forge borders on Gilligan's Island silliness--I was just waiting for Forge to build a television out of some coconuts. I mean, none of this makes sense if you think too deeply, but you have to at least slap a coat of believability over the top of it.
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.
