At least, you won't guess correctly unless you read X-Factor or Incredible Hercules. According to the new Wizard mag, Khoi Pham takes over with issue #13, the start of the Secret Invasion arc. A surprising pick when it comes to a big fancy book like MA but a good one in my opinion. Read Hercules and see.

Surprising? My con sketch by the man says otherwise:

Man's got a lot of talent, it just needs the proper forum...

Hold. Will he be the Mighty Avengers regular artist, or is he doing like a one-shot or something (New Avengers is doing those, isn't Mighty Avengers going to do it too?)?

The article says regular artist. Too bad for Incredible Hercules, but good news for MA!

Yeah, in one way I'm bummed 'cause her Herc stuff looked amazing-- but c'mon, this is Mighty Avengers! Damn that's gonna be cool.

Or maybe they're working way ahead or something and we get both? Who know.

Either way, congrats Khoi-- a great artist and a nice guy!

Interesting.

I really liked his stuff on the one issue of Incredible Hercules thus far, this is obviously a big step up for him.

This might be another Ivan Reis on Green Lantern situation, after Carlos Pacheco and Ethan Van Sciver re-launched the title, Ivan came on the book with little fanfare and look at the amazing job he's done.

Either way congrats to Khoi Pham!

Wait wait wait . . . I'm not familiar with the artist in question and the name doesn't scream out to my dumb western ears a gender, but going from "her Herc work" to a "nice guy" just confounds me.
I was never confused!

Woah now this is unexpected. Nice to see a new comer to comics getting a big book like this.

Wow, very interesting. I never completely warmed up to his X-Factor work, but I get the sense it might have been a bit rushed to fill in for Raimondi.

didnt bendis just say on his word balloon podcast that the next batch of might avenger issues would be done by all star guest artists similar what they are doing with new avengers for secret invasion.......as several other posts say wizard has a very bad habit of reporting not only wrong information but very very outdated info as well......therye are several news items in the new wizard that are have already been proven wrong and outdated

okay, so with Mighty AVengers 11 coming out in March, I can assume that 12 will be coming out in april with...13 possibly also coming out in april (they've been doing 2 mighty 'vengers for a few months in the solicits) or at the lasest may.
I like knowing that he's getting some work, but now I gotta wonder who's taking over Incredible Hercules?

HEY!
any of you who work at Marvel!
have y'all heard anything?

Thats great. He's a talented artist and I really dug his work on the Hulk.

Looking at those sketches, it seems like he'd be a better fit on NEW AVENGERS.

Speaking of which is there any word on who's picking up the reins after Yu leaves? I know Mack is doing a few issues... but then who?

That is the 1992 NBA Dream team of modern Marvel artists.


Good news for Pham, he kind of has a NIco Henrichon vibe

This will be great until post secret Invasion when Mighty gets canned.

Awesome! I saw his work on X-Factor later this year and was really impressed, cool to see he's getting a high profile gig.

In the Word Balloons podcast summary (Not listened yet), it mentions Bendis talking about a suprising announcement about MA. It's that or the Initative IMO :)

Matt C. Linton

Yeah, in the podcast when Bendis is asked about rotating or regular artists for New and Mighty Avengers he says that both with have rotating artists through Secret Wars, then an announcement about a regular artist for New Avengers and a "big announcement" for Mighty. I took that to mean Mighty's the book that's going bye-bye.

wizard also mentions that Billy Tan from uncanny x-men will be doing the artwork for issue 44 focusing on spidey and his involvement with secret invasion

Assuming the rest of the lineup is McNiven, Hitch, Cassaday, Romita Jr., Campbell, and McGuinness.

Wouldn't adding a Skrull into his current mix just be an even bigger mind fuck? (or mind fuck you to the readers?).

Take out Campbell, he's really never done anything for Marvel other than covers.

I'd replace with Bachelo.

He's got a mini (apparantly) Spider-Man series with Loeb coming out (although they seem to have been working on it for about four years).

I was actually thinking about Madureira. Not sure why I put Campbell.
