... That's news to me!

Long story short: A ways down (posted by the user Red Orion), it's said that Coipel will be off of 'Thor' for 2 issues and then will be back with #9, apparently.

My question is this: Given the amount of lead time they had on this book, why would they need a fill in at just #7? Sure, I know life happens sometimes -believe me, I know-, but I was always under the impression Coipel was a fairly timely artist.

Plus he hasn't done any interviews at all (anyone else notice that? Must be a language barrier thing, or he's just a quiet person in general) in the last couple months outside of the initial launch, so who knows what might be going on there.

Well, I suppose we'll find out what the real deal is near the end of the month with the January '08 solicitations.

If they had to get a fill-in artist though? I'd go with Andrea DiVito or Ed McGuinness. Can't go wrong with either one.

It is very early in the series to be having fill in artists. I hope the replacement is good. It seems like this is after the first arc which is about 6 issues, so at least it won't interrupt the flow of the book while the missing Asgardian story is filled out.
