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!
