    Default Is Jonathan Hickman taking over?

    There's an interesting teaser in today's Marvel comics.



    Oliver Sava thinks this confirms that Jonathan Hickman is taking over as writer, which has been rumored for a while.

    If so, I'm really looking forward to it, given his impressive runs on Fantastic Four and X-Men. It's about time for X-Men to have something similarly ambitious.
    Sincerely,
    Thomas Mets

    This rumour pops up at least twice a year and it's not going to happen.

    I'm not buying anything the X-Line is currently producing, not with any regularity. Jonathan Hickman would likely insure the continuation of that.

    I don't think it's likely to happen though, that rumor comes and goes every six months. I don't know what the ad is indicative of.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.

    I’m not against Hickman taking over but I want the Age of X-Man talent to have had an impact first.

    Hickman on X-Books is like wandering through the desert on the verge of anti-alive and seeing the oasis, but then you get there and it's always just a mirage hiding uhhhh, a Pepsi machine.

    I don't see what this teaser would have anything to do with Hickman, as much as I'd like to think otherwise.

    Are you sure you don’t mean an RC Cola machine?

    Hickman would be interesting on an X-book, but at this point after multiple “Is Hickman taking over” rumors, I don’t care too much.

    This definitely has to do with the X-Men, at least. It sounds interesting and it's invoking feelings of Morrion's run - so Hickman may well be an option. I'd be down for it.

    Didn't Bleeding Cool say there was a big Magneto event coming? Or was that bishop66?

    This place would hate Hickman, so I don't know why the hell some of you want him to take over. He's known for sometimes using characters as plot devices, despite never getting to the point of character assassination, and I already saw fans of certain characters having disproportionate reactions to stuff tamer than that. He's a god amongst writers, but I wouldn't wish a X-Book gig on him. I like him too much for that.

    Critics might be plugged into the industry enough to know if there's any truth to a rumor, especially one that would involve a lot of artists and major lead-time. It is relevant that this is Oliver Sava's immediate conclusion, and that Abraham Reisman (NY Magazine) thinks that sounds right.

    Hickman has a style of big statements on white blank space.





    He had minimalist teasers for the Death of Johnny Storm.



    Obviously, Sava could be wrong, and Hickman might stick to creator-owned stuff, while this could be an announcement for some mini-series by creators we haven't heard of, or for something we already know is coming (Grand Design Year 3) but this also fits as a teaser for Hickman.

    This isn’t even the first time that Sava’s waiting for Hickman.

    I like Hickman but he often write fow few characters and often they are male characters. So I odn't think I would likehim on x-men
