Sorry about that, folks. Something about working at Bleeding Cool seems to bring about a stutter whenever we say the word ch-ch-changes. We've got Britain's top medical professionals working on it, but you know, socialized medicine and all that, we probably won't have an answer until sometime in 2019.
Anyway, Bleeding Cool informed you last week that superstar artist Leinil Yu would be taking a mid-series break from Inhumans vs. X-Men as of issue #3, and would not return until the finale with issue #6. Over the weekend, Newsarama tried to get in on that action by claiming Olivier Coipel has been replaced on Unworthy Thor #3 by R.B. Silva. However, Bleeding Cool can EXXXCLUSIVELY report that Newsarama is WRONG. Stick to top five lists, boys, and leave this sort of work to the professionals!
As it turns out, it won't be R.B. Silva filling in on Unworthy Thor #3. Instead, according to a statement from Marvel:
Issue #3 of the Unworthy Thor will feature art from Kim Jacinto and Olivier Coipel. Coipel will draw issues #4 and #5.

The first issue of Unworthy Thor hit stores earlier this month, offering fans a chance to vote for a penis, or something like that according to Rich Johnston, though they seemed to take that literally and vote for a dick on November 8th. Over in The Mighty Thor, Jane Foster might not have a penis, but she does retain her originally solicited artist.

Both issues hit stores in January.
Unworthy Thor isn't the only book to see an artist ch-ch-ch-ch-*slaps self* change. According to the retailer newsletter from which Newsarama took their original, erroneous report without fact-checking:
MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR #14 & VAR (OCT160944-5, $3.99, FOC 12/05/16) will now have interior art by Ray-Anthony Height, instead of the previously solicited Natacha Bustos.
We've reached out to Marvel for a comment on that one too, and we'll update this article if anything ch-ch-changes.
