Marvel Comics has officially terminated the contract of Ardian Syaf, "effectively immediately." The termination follows controversy surrounding Syaf's artwork in X-Men Gold #1. Syaf's art will still be featured in X-Men Gold #2 and X-Men Gold #3, as it is too late to alter these upcoming issues of the bi-weekly series. RB Silva will provide art for X-Men Gold #4, which was originally solicited as being drawn by Syaf. Silva will also illustrate X-Men Gold #5 and #6. Ken Lashley will draw X-Men Gold #7-9.
