The Vision wants to be human, and what’s more human than family? He goes to the laboratory where he was created, where Ultron molded him into a weapon, where he first rebelled against his given destiny, where he first imagined that he could be more, that he could be good, that he could be a man, a normal, ordinary man. And he builds them. A wife, Virginia. Two teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition or perhaps obsession: the unrelenting need to be ordinary. Behold The Visions! They’re the family next door, and they have the power to kill us all. What could possibly go wrong?

Tom King’s “Vision” comic series is a 12-issue limited series published by Marvel Comics in 2015-2016. The series debuted in November 2015 and concluded in October 2016. It follows the Vision, an android member of the Avengers, as he tries to create a suburban family and live a normal life.

In the series, Vision creates a family for himself – a wife, Virginia, and two children (Viv and Vin). They move to a quiet suburban neighborhood. However, despite their efforts to fit in, the family’s synthetic nature and past constantly threaten to disrupt their idea of conformity. 

The series explores themes of family, identity, and what it means to be human. It is become well known for its complex characters, dark and introspective tone, as well as its exploration of the consequences of trying to live a “normal” life in a world where one is inherently different. 

Overall, Tom King’s “Vision” is a deeply thought-provoking and emotionally powerful series that subverts the superhero genre. 9.5/10

Industry Acclaim:

The series was critically acclaimed and won several awards, including:

  • 2016 Harvey Award for “Most Promising New Talent” for writer Tom King
  • 2017 Ringo Award for “Best Series”
  • 2017 Ringo Award for “Best Writer”

Critical Acclaim

During and after the series conclusion, it was nearly universally adored as a ground breaking and influential project. The series catapulted Tom King to new heights as he would begin putting out similar and well-received series. The series enjoys a 4.8 on Amazon, a 4.52 on Goodreads, and a 9.3 Critic Meta Score on Comic Book Round Up. I should note, the final issue (#12) received a 9.9 Critic Meta Score (which is extremely rare). The unique recognition validates that they “stuck the landing” with this one.

Award Winner


Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? is an in-depth exploration of the Gein family and what led to the creation of the necrophile who haunted the dreams of 1950s America and inspired such films as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Silence of the Lambs. Painstakingly researched and illustrated, Schechter and Powell’s true crime graphic novel takes the Gein story out of the realms of exploitation and gives the reader a fact-based dramatization of these tragic, psychotic and heartbreaking events. Because, in this case, the truth needs no embellishment to be horrifying.
