Kind of a random thing I’ve been wondering.
Does Jonathan Hickman have Aspergers?
I don’t know why, but his writing gives off similar ticks that I usually have when I think about things. Like everything being laid out and organized to a tee, how there’s jumps in the emotional responses, and how everything seems really organized and there is no excess in any of the locations or scenery.
It just reminds me of some things I do.
As someone who A.) has Asperger’s and B.) has never been able to get into Hickman’s comics for this exact reason, I hope not. I hate the stereotype that people on the spectrum are inherently devoid of empathy, and that’s exactly how Hickman’s comics read; meticulous structuring, but the characters are mostly ciphers who react as the plot needs them to react.
