A bit of a change to DC New Age of Heroes title The Unexpected #5 in October. A change that was, it seems, unexpected.
Because instead of the solicited Cary Nord and Mark Farmer drawing the comic book in question, it will instead be drawn by Ronan Cliquet — who was solicited as joining the comics with The Unexpected #6, but is now turning up a whole month early.
And while we’re at it Fernando Pasarin is to join the solicited Ed Benes on the art for Deathstroke #36, out on October, and kicking off the whole Arkham storyline.
