How unexpected is Age of Ultron? So unexpected that even Marvel doesn’t know who’s drawing what issue, it seems. After last week’s shipping update announced that Brandon Peterson would be drawing #7 and 8 of the series solo despite original solicitations for Peterson sharing art chores on both issues with Carlos Pacheco, this week’s shipping update backtracks slightly:
AGE OF ULTRON #7 (OF 10) has art by Brandon Peterson and Carlos Pacheco, as originally solicited, not Brandon Peterson.
#8, it seems, remains a Peterson-only issue.
The shipping update this week also backtracks on last week’s update that Chris Bachalo wouldn’t be drawing Uncanny X-Men #4:
UNCANNY X-MEN #4 had an incorrect update last week. The cover and interior art for the regular cover will be done by Chris Bachalo. The interior of the variant will be done by Chris Bachalo, however the variant cover will be Kris Anka.
In future, it seems, it might be best to trust the original solicits and not the updates. Unless, of course, it’s one of those situations where the update is actually a real update.
