Marcus To is replacing Aaron Kuder as the artist of the upcoming All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #8.
No reason was given for the change in the notice sent out to retailers by the publisher, but Kuder has taken a break from the twice-monthly book after the first arc; Chris Samnee illustrated this week's #6, while Greg Smallwood is on #7, To now on #8, and Mike Hawthorne on #9.
Kuder remains on the title however, as he remains scheduled for September's All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #10.
Here is the updated solicitation for To's issue, due out August 16:
