He is the creator of The Nightly News, published under Image, and has also worked on Marvel's Legion of Monsters, on the story N'Kantu, the Living Mummy: MustDie/EatSoul.

He has also designed covers for Virgin Comics, most significantly Andy Diggle's Guy Ritchie's Gamekeeper and Garth Ennis' Seven Brothers. He also wrote "The Core" for Top Cow's Pilot Season in 2008.

He has collaborated with Brian Michael Bendis and editor Tom Brevoort on a new Marvel ongoing series, entitled Secret Warriors. It follows Nick Fury and a group of superpowered operatives as they undertake espionage operations in the wake of Secret Invasion. Stefano Caselli will be the artist; and also collaborated with artists Dale Eaglesham and Steve Epting on Fantastic Four and with Sean Chen on the limited series Dark Reign: Fantastic Four.

Hickman's work on Fantastic Four, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Secret Warriors has garnered him immense praise and is now considered one of the best and most unique writers in the industry.

Upon ending the Fantastic Four series with issue #588, Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting launched the new series called "FF" or Future Foundation which sees the remaining Fantastic Four team members expand their roster to include Spider-Man, among others.
