Updated April 26, 2019: Nao Fuji has signed on as the third artist for June 5's Black Cat #1.
Fuji debuted earlier this year drawing six cat-themed variants for Marvel, but will now make their interior comics debut illustrating a portion of the issue. Fuji joins original series artist Travel Foreman and Michael Dowling, who was added to the book last week (see below).
In a reply to an earlier version of this article, series writer Jed McKay tweeted "It's a full issue plus two backups, everything's fine."
Marvel's original solicit for the issue listed Foreman as the sole artist for the entire issue.
Original Story: Michael Dowling has signed on as a second artist for June 5's Black Cat #1, alongside announced series artist Travel Foreman.
Dowling joins the book after doing similar co-artist duties on the recent Star Wars: Tie Fighter #1.
Concurrent with this news, Marvel has informed retailers that its top 3,000 accounts from Diamond Comic Distributors will be receiving a free Black Cat poster on May 29 to promote the June launch.
Here is the updated solicitation for Black Cat #1:
