One month after DC's kick-off of "Rebirth," some of the twice-monthly titles involved are already experiencing post-solicitations creative changes.

DC has informed retailers that July's Superman #3 will be drawn by announced Super Sons artist Jorge Jimenez (replacing series co-writer/artist Patrick Gleason on that issue), while Green Lanterns #3 artists Robson Rocha and Jay Leisten will be joined by Jack Herbert, Neil Edwards, Keith Champagne, Tom Derenick, and Tom Palmer.

This comes despite DC announcing rotating artistic teams for those titles. Doug Mahnke was scheduled to rotate with Patrick Gleason on Superman, while Green Lanterns had an announced rotating team of Rocha and Ardian Syraf.

As already detailed in DC's September solicitations , Batman #6 will feature fill-in art by Ivan Reis,  while Riley Rossmo will draw at least the first part of the "Night of the Monster Men" crossover - Batman #7, giving the regular rotating artists David Finch and Mikel Janin a full month off. 

In addition to those creative changes, DC's retailer email also reveals delays across several of the final "New 52" era titles. June 15's Harley Quinn #29 and Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Deadshot/Katana #6 are moved back to June 22, while June 22's Harley's Little Black Book #4 is bumped three weeks back to July 13. Sister title Harley Quinn & Her Gang of Harleys #4, along with Legends of Tomorrow #5, are both pushed from July 13 to July 20. The Hanna-Barbera title Future Quest #2 was also delayed, moving from June 29 to July 6.
