Superstar comic book writer Jonathan Hickman is the mastermind behind 2019's relaunch of the X-Men at Marvel. Hickman's House of X and Powers of X changed the trajectory of the X-books for the foreseeable future, bring the franchise back to prominence after years of neglect. If you've ever read any of his tweets or interviews, the last thing you'd be likely to call Hickman is "humble," and perhaps deservedly so. Nevertheless, Hickman is the subject of the latest Humble Bundle, offering a slew of Hickman's creator-owned comics in a digital bundle that you set the price.
