Marvel announced new artists on Avengers and Kingpin. The News comes via NewsaRama. Mike Del Mundo will no longer be drawing Avengers starting with the May 10th release of issue #7. Phil Noto will be replacing Mike; however, Phil was already set to draw issue #8. There hasn’t been a statement on why the change of artists, though Mike said back in January to Newsarama that he hoped he could come back to the book in an interview.
Nrama:You are solicited through March’s Avengers #5. Are you on for the long haul?
Del Mundo: I hope so!

For Kingpin, artist Benjamin Torres is taking an unscheduled level from the book for issue #4. Miguel Sepuvelda will be taking over for two issues, and Torres will return for issue #6. The artist change for Kingpin isn’t permanent however, since Torres is at least returning for issue #6.
