Transformers #12 was solicited as being drawn by Kei Zama. Indeed, with a cover by Alez Milne, the solicitation promised 'The return of both Alex Milne (Transformers: Unicron) and Kei Zama (Optimus Prime)'
Not so fast. While Milne is still drawing the cover, the internal art credit has now transformed into Sara Pitre-Durocher, who worked on the pre-reboot Transformers books for IDW. But Milne will be returning for the subsequent issue.
Because Transformers #13 was solicited with art by Anna Malkova and Bethany McGuire-Smith and has now similarly transformed into Angel Hernandez and Alex Milne who worked on previous issues.
Any more for any more? Here are the original solicitations for both:
