Hello and welcome to Comic Book Herald’s Hickmania, a series running through 2022 where we’ll be reading and analyzing the creator-owned works of writer Jonathan Hickman, from his debut The Nightly News through to his most recent output. We’ll be reading one creator-owned work a month through 2022, and each month I’ll release a new analysis with a new guest discussing the comic!
- How does Hickman’s comics debut hold up 15 years later?
- How does Hickman use design and infographics to invigorate a cynical, violent, often muddled story?
- Does a comic about violence against the media work in 2022? How has the changing cultural landscape changed those implications?
