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.
The series consists of four different stories told over three issue arcs, each having its own artist, and each blending a different genre with prospective science-fiction:
- "Lust For Life" - horror-like (art by Frank Quitely, covers by John Eder)
- "La Tormenta" - crime-like (art by Warren Pleece, covers by John Eder)
- "Renegade" - western-like (art by James Romberger, covers by Stephen John Phillips)
- "Repro Man" - romance-like (art by Steve Pugh, covers by Stephen John Phillips)
With all stories taking place in the year 2020, the four stories were loosely connected by a genetic relationship between the main protagonist of each tale.
Publishers Weekly described the story as "William Burroughs-influenced squalor and grotesquerie [...] There are plenty of clever ideas here."
The series has been collected into a couple of volumes:2020 Visions (12-issue series, DC/Vertigo, 1997-1998) collected as:
