REVIEW: Vision, Vol. 1: Little Worse Than A Man

Posted on

"Little Worse Than A Man" collects issues of the 2015 Vision series #1-6 in a trade paperback. The Vision has built a synthezoid family in the same manner in which he was built by Ultron. He wishes to be human and lead a normal, peaceful life in the suburbs surrounding Washington DC. As with all stories of this nature, The Visions are doomed from the beginning.

Have you ever read Chapter 4 of "Watchmen" (the one that begins with Dr. Manhattan sitting on Mars, staring at an old photograph)? And wished somebody would write a whole comic series just like it? This is the comic for you. Like Jim Steranko's "Nick Fury, Agent of Shield", sometimes stories involving minor characters can be the most interesting.

So take a break from "Rebirth" or "Civil War II" and give Vision a read. If you like books about robots that make you feel feelings, you won't regret it.

 

UPDATE 29/11/2016: After finishing Volume 2: "Little Better Than A Beast", I'm heartbroken. I'll be recommending these books to friends and strangers for a long time and reading everything I can find by Tom King, Gabriel Hernandez Walta and Jordie Bellaire.
