A changing solicitation here. It appears that Skottie Young and Simone Bianchi will be joining the solicited Sara Pichelli as artists on the new launch issue of Fantastic Four #1.
Skottie Young’s addition suggests a cartoony fantasy scene, or a childish point of view. Simone’s addition suggests something similar for the adults maybe more cosmic in nature.
In other solicitation changes, Life of Captain Marvel #2 will see Marguerite Sauvage join the previously solicited Carlos Pacheco on the comic. Which suggests… well… scheduling difficulties?
UPDATE: Nope. A Marvel representative has informed us that Marguerite Sauvage’s contributions to The Life of Captain Marvel series will be in the form of flashbacks. Nothing to do with scheduling issues.
These scenes have always been planned as you will apparently see from the final art. Though one may ask why they were missing from the original solicit?
Here are the new solicitations…
