David Marquez and Michele Bandini are now drawing April 18's X-Men: Gold #26, replacing the originally-solicited team of Diego Bernard and Paul Renaud. Additionally, David Yardin's solicited cover showing a hound-era Rachel Summers has been replaced by a Phil Noto cover depicting the to-be-married couple of Kitty Pryde and Colossus.
No reason has been given for the change.
Here is the updated solicitation:
