The universe is an ever-shifting place, sometimes changing without most of us even noticing. After publicly soliciting Guardians of Infinity #8 for July 20 written by Dan Abnett, Marvel sent a notice to comic book retailers informing them famed astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson would be contributing a story to the issue. Now, Marvel has amended the solicitation again, saying DeGrasse Tyson would no longer be working on Guardians of Infinity #8, replaced by horror directors Jen and Sylvia Soska.

"Due to a miscommunication, the previews catalog was printed with incorrect information," said a Marvel representative. "In addition to a story by Dan Abnett and Carlo Barberi, Jen and Sylvia Soska will be the writers contributing to Guardians of Infinity #8."

It's unknown who the artist will be for the Soskas' story. The horror directing duo made their Marvel debut in 2015 with a short in Secret Wars Journal #5.

Here is the current - and most accurate - solicitation text.
