Farewell, Andrea

Well, it turns out that Andrea DiVito will be leaving The Thing after the Hercules issue. Naturally, I'm disappointed as I've really enjoyed his work on the book thus far, and I had planned on writing several posts here about how great Andrea's work was.

That said, we can look forward to the work of Kieron Dwyer on the book. I know Kieron's work largely from his run during Kurt Busiek's Avengers a few years back. Including one of their "Nuff Said" silent issues, where Kieron could not fall back on Kurt's script to describe anything. For me, I felt that was one of the better of the Nuff Said issues. I think that says a lot to Kieron's storytelling abilities.

Now, personally, I like Andrea's illustration style a little better but, ultimately, I'm more concerned with the overall storytelling. Although I came to Andrea's Thing with few preconceptions of his artwork, but with Kieron's work, I comfortable that readers will be in good hands.

Farewell, Andrea and welcome, Kieron!
