Monday, CBR News brought you series writer Kurt Busiek's insights into Erik Larsen's departure from Marvel Comics' "Defenders." We touched base with series editor Tom Brevoort on Tuesday.

"We'll be sad to see Erik go, but his health has to come first," Brevoort told CBR News on Tuesday. "Struggling to work on two or three books a month while the after-effects of the pneumonia persist is a good way to guarantee that you might not be doing anything in the near future. Erik will be departing with issue #12 as both co-plotter and penciller, but 'The Defenders' will continue beyond his involvement. As to who'll be involved, and where things go from here, we should have more information shortly."
