Champions #9

 

James's Pick

Casting a spotlight on young synthezoid Viv Vision! After what became of her family, she willingly shut down her emotions - but does that come with a price to pay?

After the dark conclusion to the story of Vision and his family, Viv has taken it upon herself to fight for truth and justice. But just because you turn your back on your past does not mean it simply disappears. In this special issue from Mark Waid (W) and Humberto Ramos (A), we take a step into Viv's world and find out just how twisted life for her has become. This issue is a must grab!

**Plus a Special Shout Out to the Image Pride Variant Covers!**

The Gods are out to play and, with free range, the party is going to be a long, fun one. After-all what consequences could there be of living life up to the fullest? A continuation of the New York Times best selling series from Jamie McKelvie (A) and Kieron Gillen (W), Wicked+Divine volume 5 keeps the heat burning strong.

And we also like to give a big shout out to Image Comics and their Pride Month covers.
