2020 Visions (sometimes called 20/20 Visions) is a science-fiction comic book written by Jamie Delano and drawn by four artists. Originally serialized as a twelve-issue full-color limited series from 1997 to 1998 at the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics, it was later collected as a black-and-white volume in a 2004 hardcover from Cyberosia Publishing and a 2005 softcover from Speakeasy Comics.

Overview[edit]

The series was four different stories of three issues each, each having its own artist, and each blending a different genre with prospective science-fiction:

  1. "Lust For Life" - horror-like (art by Frank Quitely)
  2. "La Tormenta" - crime-like (art by Warren Pleece)
  3. "Renegade" - western-like (art by James Romberger)
  4. "Repro Man" - romance-like (art by Steve Pugh)

Taking all place in the future world of the year 2020, the four stories were loosely connected by a genetic relationship between the main protagonist of each tale.

Reception[edit]

Publishers Weekly described the story as "William Burroughs-influenced squalor and grotesquerie [...] There are plenty of clever ideas here." [1]

Collected editions[edit]

The series has been collected into a couple of volumes:
