Marvel Comics has canceled plans to publish the previously-announced The Vision limited series. Originally announced at Comic-Con International: San Diego, the series was to be written by Chelsea Cain and Marc Mahon and drawn by Aud Koch.
This decision comes one full month before retailers' orders for The Vision #1 were due to Diamond Comic Distributors.
Cain responded to Newsarama's initial story of the cancellation on Twitter, saying she had completed four issues.
I’m incredibly proud of the 4 issues we’ve turned in so far. It’s been 2 years of work. And reflects tremendous effort by an incredibly talented team. It kills me that we won’t get to share them...Forgive me, Viv. https://t.co/wGj65AFDZv— Chelsea Cain (@ChelseaCain) September 13, 2018
Here is the solicitation text for the now-cancelled first issue, which was slated to come out November 7.

THE NEXT CHAPTER OF THE VISION FAMILY!
When the Vision decided to try to live a “normal” life, he built a wife, a son and a daughter – a family – only to watch it nearly all crumble. Now all that’s left is Viv, his learning-to-be-rebellious daughter, and Sparky, the family robo-dog. But what does it mean for an artificial intelligence to rebel? And can a synthezoid father handle single parenthood? The married writing team of Chelsea Cain (Mockingbird) and Marc Mohan joins rising star artist Aud Koch for a new take on the Vision family that will once again have everyone talking!
