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.

I'm Elegance Liberty at over CBR (although it's probably stupidly obvious, heh). Nice to see someone else over there, here. \=\]

Ahhhhh. Hm, I guess I just got that impression since the first 3 issues of 'Thor' were out with any delays. Heh, that's kinda sad in a way when you really think about it.

Still, I know delays might be irritating, but Coipel is one of the rare few artists that I'll gladly wait for, no matter how long it might be. Hopefully though, it's just for #7 and 8 and then he's back on a slightly more on-time schedule.

Wow, really? I'm guessing it was mostly French, since that is his primary language. But that will have to something for me to look out for when I'm not obssessed with finding Mario mashup videos.


> 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.

Hmm, true. DiVito is certainly a natural fit for the Thor series (and he got 'Annihilation' done with no delays either, that says something), so I'm hoping he's the fill-in. If not, well, I hope the temporary guy isn't as... flat as the fill-in for 'The Initiative' was.
