Long-time Marvel artist Chris Bachalo is stepping down from commitments to draw upcoming issues of Spider-Man/Deapool and the four-issue Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor.

"Quick Update: Chris Bachalo had to step down from Hunt For Wolverine: Mystery In Madripoor due to a family emergency, but Thony Silas has stepped up to the plate and is delivering the best art of his career," tweeted the book's writer, Jim Zub. "All of us on the team are pumped for you to see what we're putting together."

Bachalo previously tweeted that his wife, Helen, had been ill since late 2017.
