I just finished reading FF#21 and I think one of the things I'm going to miss most about Jonathan Hickman is how he has written the kids, particular Val Richards. She has stepped into spotlight and become a fan favourite character during his run. He has been able to balance her sheer genius with being a child perfectly, and the developing friendship with Bently has been great to read. The Moloids were hilarious in this issue as well. One of the great marks of a writer to me, is to make us care about characters we normally wouldn't...and Hickman does this in spades. I only hope that Fraction will do the same thing.
