A lot of discussion considering he might be around for just three issues and that's the real shame. Brian's work is more than adequate, some will think great and some not so hot, but it is as good as most and better than some. And just when he adjusts to the character and we learn to appreciate his work, we will again have the rug pulled out from under us by Dark Horse. I really don't get their reasoning and I'm getting disgusted by being whipsawed.
I asked Fred Van Lente, and the plan is to keep Brian Ching as the permanent artist, and use fill-in artists only when absolutely necessary. He is also not a fan of the rotating artist style.
And just to add ... the "3-issue story arc with artist change" was specifically Brian Wood's idea. That was something he brought to the table, and it exits with him.
Brian Wood has had a lot of bad ideas concerning the Conan book. He will be remembered as one of the worst writers to adapt the cimmerian.
