• A while ago, a robot created a family. And all was good. For a while. Then came the murders. The lies. The betrayals. The battles fought. The battles lost. The family lost.
•  And now, at the end, Vision stands alone. He must decide how he will go on, if he will go on, if he can go on. And that decision will shape the Marvel Universe for quite a while.
•  The epic, stunning conclusion to the most highly praised series of the year. Simply put, this is the issue everyone will be talking about.
Rated T+

    Outright Geekery - Eli Funaro Dec 9, 2016

    The Vision and his family are faced with choices that will test the very meaning of their existence. But that is something everyone has to face in life. We make choices, sometimes difficult ones that affect the rest of our lives. We make sacrifices that make life hard sometimes. But life always goes on. And there is always light after the dark. And it's that shining glimmer of hope is what keeps us going. In all his grand attempt to be normal, The Vision learned the most valuable lesson, and that is life is not always fair. More Human than Human may have been the motto in Blade Runner. But as for the Vision, he wasn't any more or less. This robot got it just right. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 26, 2016

    The Vision #12 caps off what has been an amazing series with a final chapter that represents everything that has come before it very well. I never expected to see this sort of comic in the Marvel lineup and I applaud whoever gave this the initial green light. This issue is perfectly crafted and a wonderful ending to what has been a tumultuous ride with Vision's family and it's going to be a long time before I have fully processed this series. This finale made me well up with both sadness and unexpected happiness, and you just don't get that from comics all that often. Bravo, Tom, Gabriel & Jordie. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Oct 26, 2016

    A moment isn’t beautiful because it lasts and we treasure the good ones because of what they make us feel. This series has now come to a close and is the end of King’s time with Marvel for the foreseeable future (he’s DC exclusive), but it made us run the full gambit of emotions. Horror, sadness, dread, joy. And is there anything more human than feeling something? Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Oct 26, 2016

    This is an absolute must-read. It's not often a comic can deliver so many emotions. This book has been an eye-opener and has become one of my top-recommended series. Read Full Review

    CourtOfNerds - Grant Stoye Oct 26, 2016

    Whatever we hope, we can't lose sight of the fact that this book is one of the best things Marvel has put out in over 20 years. It had pathos, it had tension, it had love, and it had a depth that so many other books can never hope to achieve. We're all better for having read this book, even if we're a little sadder for having done so. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Joe Ryan Oct 26, 2016

    Vision has come to an end at #12, and what a ride it has been. The writing by King has been so genius that I was waiting for everything to go to hell by the end of this series. While some things do continue down that horrible gut wrenching path, this story does a good job of reminding us that there is always a lesson to be learned in a tragedy. If you have not read this series, it is an absolute must buy. If you cannot find all twelve single issues, which may prove tough, be sure to read this in trade. I give this series a slow clap from a guy at a party in an eighties movie, and that is a massive honor. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Oct 27, 2016

    Overall, this is an outstanding final issue for an almost flawless comic series. From start to finish, we've loved each character and each sub-plot. It's a shame that it's come to an end, but we'd rather it end on a high note than the story be strung out and drop in quality. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 26, 2016

    Vision #12 deals with very complex emotions in a deft and meaningful way. It leaves you feeling these emotions and reflecting on the human condition. An amazing feat considering it's about a robot. Read Full Review
