It’s been a remarkable year for comics. Huge publishers like DC and Marvel have rejuvenated their line-ups with tons of amazing books; beyond the big two, there’s been some of the most compelling, challenging material in the industry we’ve seen in years. It was hard to narrow it down, but here’s 20 of 2015’s best.
Last month, I was completely blindsided by the creepy, compelling opening to The Vision. Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta crafted an incredible first issue that explored the Avenging Android’s new family, and how coldly inhuman they were—but the second issue gives them some dark, fascinatingly human problems.
Okay. So Halloween might be behind us, and I can’t quite believe I’m saying this about a Marvel comic—especially one starring the Avenging Android that was one of the most charming parts of Age of Ultron. But the first issue of The Vision is a strangely chilling, page-turner of a comic. And it is fantastic.
Look, I know in the comics that Vision has purged his emotions multiple times, but that’s no excuse to turn an innocent Mr. Potato Head into the creepiest thing imaginable.
While there’s been many rumors circulating about just who is fighting who in the next Captain America movie—but newly emerged promotional art has given our first look at just who is standing with Captain America or Iron Man in Marvel’s impending superheroic dustup. There’s even a surprising face or two... spoilers…
Whoa. We’ve been getting dribs and drabs of reveals for Marvel’s upcoming universal reboot over the past week, but it looks like the jackpot has just hit: Comics retailers across the world have received previews for 45(!) of Marvel’s new series, and it sounds like it’s a whole lot of crazy.
He may have had to wait for all the main Avengers to get their toys first, but finally, here he is: Behold, The Vision, in the plastic/synthezoid flesh! Hot Toys’ latest Age of Ultron figure is so pretty, it’ll prove that even
a wallet can cry as you fork over the cash for this Avenging Android figure.
Hot Toy’s oddly adorable line of “Artist Mix” vinyl toys is back, and although there’s lots of cool looking stuff to be seen, let’s be real: The best of the bunch is the wonderful little vinyl Vision.
Age of Ultron is already breaking box office records across the world, and will finally make its way to US theaters tomorrow — and already one of the things that’s gotten people most excited is the movie’s take on the Vision. Want some cool swag for the Avenging Android? Look no further.
I can't think of another comic book movie character to have more "first looks" than the Vision. We've had blurred posters, concept art, promotional art, teasers in behind the scenes footage, and the briefest of looks in the trailers. But this might be the first time we've seen the full character, in the android-flesh.
Nearsightedness is reaching epidemic levels worldwide, but nowhere is its rise more prevalent than East Asia, where as many as 90% of teenagers and young adults now suffer from blurry distance vision. Why the sudden spike? Book work has long been blamed, but recent findings point to something else.
A bunch of new Avengers: Age of Ulton promo art has been unveiled, and with it Ultron's new origin story. Plus, take a look at Vision in his full, caped beauty.
Humans can't see infrared. That's why we fear animals like snakes, bed bugs, and the Predator. No longer must we live with this fear! Scientists have shown that, under certain circumstances, our retinas actually can detect infrared light.
First he was JARVIS, now he's the Vision. We sat down with Paul Bettany at Comic-Con and desperately tried to needle any details out of the newest addition to the Earth's mightiest heroes. And here's what we discovered.
Marvel has been releasing two interconnected Avengers: Age of Ultron posters a day at Comic-Con; when the last two posters are released tomorrow, we'll post the entire, 8-part epic picture. But today's Quicksilver poster reveals something more — the first glimpse of the android known as The Vision!
Fruits can get their colors from a lot of places. New research suggests that the color preferences of the animals that eat fruit are among the strongest influences on fruit color. It's an assumption scientists have always made, but now they have some evidence to support it.
Tommy Edison, who has done many videos about what it's like to have been blind since birth, recently asked people to describe colors to him. And the result says a lot about our emotional connection to color, which can differ from the reality a fair bit.
Do you spend more than seven hours a day parked in front of a computer monitor? Results from a newly published study suggest you could be stripping your "tear film" of a component that helps keep your eyes clean, lubricated and healthy.
