Updated August 23: Paco Diaz has signed on to assist Mark Bagley in drawing Venom: First Host #4 and #5.

Ron Lim was announced earlier this month as assisting Bagley on issues #2, #3, and #5, but Diaz has stepped in for Lim on #5. Lim is still scheduled to draw portions of #2 and #3 with Bagley.
 

Original Story: Ron Lim has been enlisted to draw a portion of the weekly Venom: First Host limited series, joining the previously-solicited Mark Bagley.

Lim will be drawing an unspecified portion of issues #2, #3 and #5. Marvel gave no reason for this change when announcing it to retailers.

Venom: First Host is scheduled to debut August 29 and run weekly for five issues. Here are the updated solicitations:
