It’s time for us to review another comic book series for our book club, and this time we’ve chosen The Vision issues 1 thru 6 by Tom King and illustrated by Gabriel Hernandez Walta.
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?
We hope you’ll join us and read along. We’ll record our discussion the first weekend in May. You can join our book club Facebook group to stay updated on when and where to leave your feedback for the show. The first six issues of The Vision (which make up the complete first story arc) are available on Comixology here, or you can pick them up at your local comic book shop.
