Ramon K Perez Replaces Ben Oliver on Giant-Size X-Men Magneto

Giant-Size X-Men Magneto was solicited as drawn by Ben Oliver. But retailers have just been informed, that it will now be drawn by Ramon K Perez.

This has happened after a little previous swapping around. Giant X-Men: Nightcrawler was originally solicited for April 11th but it will now be published by Marvel Comics two weeks early, on March 25th. While Giant X-Men: Magneto, originally solicited for March 5th, will now be published on April 29th, an eight-week delay.

And this seems to be the reason. Ben Oliver had to pull out from the project and was replaced by Perez – who then needed time to draw the one-shot, though Ben's Magneto cover remains. Here's the new solicitation.
