Marvel Comics’ acclaimed, haunting ‘Vision' getting 6-issue follow-up to deal with the aftermath

Marvel’s bizarre, dread-filled Vision comic was one of the best things the publisher has put out in years — and now it's getting a continuation to deal with the deadly fallout of a synthezoid family gone wrong.

During the publisher’s “Next Big Thing” panel, Marvel confirmed a six-issue follow-up series from the creative team of Chelsea Cain, Marc Mohan, and Aud Koch. They will pick up the baton from original creative team Tom King, Gabriel Hernandez-Walta, and Jordie Bellaire. Cain is likely best known for her recent Mockingbird solo series, which was itself a fantastic exploration of a character typically portrayed as a side player. Handing her the reins to this dark, emotional story should make for a fascinating combination.

The series looks to pick up with Vision and his daughter Viv (who is now a hero herself with the Champions) as they look to move on from the brutal tragedy that wrapped up the original run (seriously, go read it if you haven’t). The series was unlike pretty much anything the Big Two have put out in recent years, forgoing super heroics for a twisted, dark family tale that had more in common with Twin Peaks than a series ostensibly based on one of the Avengers. It’s great to see Marvel double down on that type of storytelling, while also tapping a fresh creative team to play in that corner of its world.

The first issue of Cain’s Vision hits in November.
