    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Jun 8, 2016

    Vision is the best that Marvel currently has to offer. Each book manages to catch me off guard, surprise me, and shock me in ways that are completely unique to the series. After the brief detour of Vision #7, it is clear that Vision #8 kicks off this new arc with aplomb. This is a comic that has consistently used every panel to further mood, story, and character. Vision #8 overflows with meaning. It rewards multiple readings and close dissection. While I'm a little concerned about opening this very idiosyncratic world to the rest of 616, right now King and Walta are in sync and doing consistent and stellar work. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Sankalp G. Jun 16, 2016

    Vision has been a revelation for me. I thought it was just one of those C-level books or a title which is created for the sake of a reboot at first. But now I am waiting for next issue of Vision more than the Civil War II itself. It was a kind of slow build but it is really showing how proper build-up and storytelling can do for characters. The stakes are higher here than any of the other current series Marvel has put out and really making readers care for our suburban android family. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Jun 10, 2016

    This book is about hard choices, what you are willing to sacrifice for the greater vision you have and how the consequences of those actions alter your life. It's about how fighting against where you come from only makes you more likely to become the thing you hate. It's about what's not said and how it will eventually find a way of expressing itself whether you like it or not. King and Walta continue to deliver the most gripping, explosive story inside the Marvel Universe in "The Vision" #8, and it all revolves around a two-story suburban home. Forget "Civil War II"; the real high stakes action this summer is a suburban synthetic family drama. Read Full Review

    I couldn't tell you about the rest of series, but this feels like a horror story unfolding, I'd be almost scared to read the rest but morbidly fascinated to see it through. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ian B Jun 9, 2016

    The Vision has consistently been a joy to read, and that is in no small part due to Tom King's writing, which flows very naturally and always presents a sense of impending dread. Frequently in the series he will tell you the final fate of a character well before hand, but the enjoyment of the series comes from how these characters will reach this inevitable end, not simply what this end is. This series asks its readers to look deeper into the ongoing story, and leaves them consistently excited for the next instalment. I would easily recommend this series to not just fans of comics, but fans of literature in general, I promise you will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 9, 2016

    ‘Little Better Than a Beast' is a masterpiece in the making. You can call this an over-exaggeration, but when you truly invest yourself in this story it takes you places you wish most mainstream comics would. Vision #8 is where moves against the Visions begin, and for better or for worse things will escalate more than they already have before. Read Full Review

    Arguably my favorite issue of the series so far but heading into the last few issues, I expect things to get even greater. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jason Adams Jun 9, 2016

    Knowing that this series has a finite end to it while reading it (given Tom Kings exclusive contract with DC) makes the references to Visions eventual razing of the world (and now Victors fratricidal demise) all the more ominous. Given how dark the story has been so far, believing that ol Tommy K. plans to actually follow through on the series narrators grim foreshadowing statements is not at all a hard pill to swallow.
