Earlier today, The Comics Beat reported that Tom King was one of three writers to sign an exclusive contract with DC Comics to “produce their comic book work solely for the DC Comics and Vertigo imprints.” In the wake of the announcement, many readers were left wondering what would happen to The Vision. The series, which is penned by King and drawn by Gabriel H. Walta, was launched in October as part of Marvel’s All-New All-Different initiative and immediately became a surprise success.
King took to Twitter to quell fears that the book might come to a sudden, violent end:
As to Vision, I’m on through issue 12. We’re finishing the story we set out to tell without a single compromise. pic.twitter.com/cx6yJD4yyL

At the time of this post, DC hasn’t publicly announced King to be tied to any titles in their Rebirth Initiative. We can expect more information during Wonder Con in March. If I were a betting man though, I’d start shining a beacon towards Gotham.
