    VISION #2 is an incredibly haunting book that takes one of Marvel's iconic characters and puts them in a setting that borders on horror. King, Walta, and Bellaire have come together to create easily the most memorable first couple of issues, thus far, in the post-SECRET WARS universe. I highly recommend picking this book up.

    This contextual relationship between King's words and Walta's visuals is what makes The Vision such a gorgeous, emotional, provocative, insightful, and necessary comic book. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 3, 2015

    Moral choices are at play making this another spectacular issue if you're a fan of psychological dramas. It's at once disturbing and tragic to witness a robot family attempt to be human, but also maintain the impossible: logical control of themselves. Read Full Review

    If it continues at this level of excellence, King and Walta's "The Vision" more than deserves to be a sleeper hit. Read Full Review

    Hernandez Walta's artwork is a joy to discover. The artist's influences shine through - from Sean Phillips to Frank Miller, from Chris Samnee to Chris Sprouse - but he definitely has his own unique, visual "voice" as well. I find the simpler aspect to the figures to make them seem more universal, more like templates, making it easier for the reader to enter their world, their lives. I appreciate the character designs, and the muted color palette that Jordie Bellaire employs really adds to the uneasy and odd mood throughout the story. I don't know how long King plans to explore the Vision and family in this manner, but as long as he does so, I'll be reading along. Read Full Review

    Despite what the cool logic of the Vision and his synthezoid family would have you believe, this book is filled with heartbreaking emotions. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Dec 3, 2015

    To say that The Vision #1 was a surprise success is somewhat of an understatement. That's not to discredit the fine work Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta have put out before, but it's unlikely that anyone expected the debut to be the wonder that it was. Well, that surprise is out of the bag now, as issue #2 is every bit as layered and engaging as what came before. Read Full Review

    Its difficult to stop myself from dropping everything and just laying it out panel by panel – but that would rob people of the fun of experiencing it for themselves. This is a series that deserves to succeed and be a vanguard for a better Marvel. One where these breathtakingly written and drawn comics are the norm, and not the small gems we get year by year in a handful. I cant wait to see how this series continues next month, and for the foreseeable future. Read Full Review
