Updated April 10, 2018: Following our reporting of the below changes, Newsarama received additional information to give context to the addition of a second artist to Deadpool #1.

Series artist Nic Klein is drawing the lead story in Deadpool #1, with a new back-up story drawn by Scott Hepburn now added to the now-oversized "Fresh Start" relaunch issue.

Klein is the lead artist for the book, with plans for Hepburn to rotate in every three-to-four issues.
 

Original Story: Both Deadpool #1 and X-Men Wedding Special #1 are enlisting more artists.

Scott Hepburn has joined originally-solicited series artist Nic Klein on drawing the "Fresh Start" relaunch of Deadpool. Marvel has not disclosed the reason for this change, however during C2E2  at the "Meet C.B. Cebulski" panel series writer Skottie Young mentioned a problem with the art of Deadpool #1 that happened during a weekend. Young explained that he and C.B. figured out a solution to the unspecifeid problem, but were glad they didn't have to give Klein "bad news."

Over on X-Men Wedding Special #1, one-time Nightcrawler artist Todd Nauck has joined the anthology.

Here are the updated solicitations:
