I'm Red Orion from CBR. And Coipel isn't that timely of an artist, his Legion Lost work had three fill-ins, his Avengers had both delays and fill-ins and House of M (which had lead time) still suffered from delays.

He actually did do a really short interview after Thor #2 came out for the Comicbook Orange over on YouTube.

I agree with you on DiVito but I'd hate for McGuiness to do the fill-ins because his style wouldn't really fit with JMS' story.

Well I'm love Coipel's work so ,if he needs to catch up that's fine by me as long as the detail is the same.
I don't know about Andrea tho. I loved his Disassembled, but at times the art seemed to be a bit stiff for the lack of any way else to explain it.
