He is best known right now for killing the Human Torch, relaunching the Fantastic Four as FF, and continuing complex work like Secret Warriors and SHIELD. But many people first discovered Hickman for his title Nightly News. Followed by a number of other Image series, he quickly made a name for himself and was snapped up.
He recently returned to Image with Red Wing, and at the Creator Owned panel at San Diego Comic Con, he announced two.
First, The Manhattan Projects, with Nicky Pitarra – the wacky hijinks of the atomic scientists of the forties who worked on the first nuclear weapons, known as the “Thunderbolts Of Science”.
Then he’ll have a corporate espionage thriller called Secret with Ryan Godenheim. Both these titles are intended to continue longer than the usual comics mini-series.
