Marvel Comics is running an ad in this week’s comic releases teasing the introduction of a presumably redneck-themed superhero Hickman. The ad simply says “Hickman July 2019”.
While it’s unclear the details of the character, Marvel does have a history with another Hickman in Jonathan Hickman, who has worked on titles including Secret Warriors, SHIELD, Fantastic Four, Avengers, and Secret Wars. He stopped working for the company in 2016 to focus on creator-owned work and given his previous comments about working for Marvel, it’s unlikely that the company would welcome him back.
Long live Hickman! The hero rednecks deserve.
