New comics are due to hit the shelves on Wednesday so here’s a look ahead at some of the books we’ll be picking up this week.
Matt C: There are bunch of cool books coming out this Wednesday, and I could rattle off reasons why you should be excited by each of them, but I'm going to skip all that this week in favour of one particular issue: Vision #12. It's the finale of what has arguably been the comic of the year, a series that caught many people off guard when it first appeared at the tail end of 2015, helping to establish (alongside Sheriff Of Babylon) writer Tom King as a major talent to watch out for (and no doubt helped him nab the prime Batman gig over at DC) as he layered a story centred around Marvel's premier synthezoid with emotion and pathos. Gabriel Hernandez Walta art and Jordie Bellaire's colouring has been exceptional, providing a distinctive visual aesthetic that mixed up the emotionless façade of the main characters with a genuine sense of almost accidental humanity. It's one of the best things Marvel have done in the last few years, and if for some inexplicable reason you ignored the hype and allowed this to pass you by, then you must make sure you add it to your Christmas list as soon as possible!
