    I ve heard nothing but gushing praise for Hickman, so I m going to jump on the bandwagon by checking out all his early stuff 5 minutes before he starts his gig at Marvel.This book looks amazing Stylistically, it s like nothing I ve seen before Every page is a feast for the eyes The story is also just the sort of thing I like, blending Fight Club subtle political discourse with a wicked sense of humor and wish fulfillment violence against the man The trouble is, it left me feeling pretty emp I ve heard nothing but gushing praise for Hickman, so I m going to jump on the bandwagon by checking out all his early stuff 5 minutes before he starts his gig at Marvel.This book looks amazing Stylistically, it s like nothing I ve seen before Every page is a feast for the eyes The story is also just the sort of thing I like, blending Fight Club subtle political discourse with a wicked sense of humor and wish fulfillment violence against the man T...
