Paco Medina Joins Children Of The Atom Early In May With #3

Children Of The Atom was the  much-delayed X-Men kiddiwinks series by Vita Ayala and Bernard Chang, with a cameo in Marvel's Voices and a pandemic-length delay to the first issue. It also had to be rewritten and redrawn a little, with digital versions differing from print versions – at least initially. But if anyone finds the earlier-printed version that had to be pulped there are reportedly even bigger changes.

The second issue is out next week, but solicitations for the third issue are needing a little more amendment. Paco Medina, known for New X-Men, Deadpool, Ultimate X-Men, Suicide Squad, Star-Lord, Fantastic Four, US Avengers, Nova, New Avengers, Avengers, Venom, New Warriors, X-Men, Wolverine And Deadpool and Contest Of Champions, was solicited as replacing Bernard Chang on issue 4, but it looks like he will be coming onto the series as artist earlier with #3 as well. Could this be more than the one-issue fill-in that it previously looked like?

Here are all the upcoming solicitations for the series, including amends, so far.
