Rumor: Phil Jimenez on Astonishing X-Men


Word is spreading through the blogosphere that Phil Jimenez is stepping in to replace artist Simone Bianchi on the Astonishing X-Men series written by Warren Ellis.  It’s interesting if it is true, as Simone is a really dedicated artist who does some pretty “astonishing” art.

But what the hell do I know if this is true, the story first appeared on, which is a French website, and I don’t speak French, plus the story has been removed from the site.  We’ll find out more on Tuesday at 12:00 EDT, right here on this site, but you’ll have to do some math and pay careful attention to “the post” to see if this is the real deal or not.
