Some comic book readers are speculating on Reddit Wednesday that Marvel pulled a 'bait-and-switch' with this week's Uncanny Inhumans #1. Solicited with Steve McNiven illustrating the book, instead the credits page lists the Civil War artist as inker with Jay Leisten as penciller -- but with McNiven still receiving top billing over Leisten.

"I know the inkers still have a large part to play in the art of the comic," said Reddit user HuntSauce," but I feel cheated by the fact that Jay Leisten's pencils don't come close to how nice McNiven's look."

What's going on here?

It's just a misprint, according to Marvel, and that McNiven did pencil the issue with Leistin inking.

Leisten has been McNiven's inker regularly since his 2011 Captain America run, following him onto Uncanny Avengers, Death of Wolverine and the earlier Uncanny Inhumans #0.
