Marvel have shuffled the deck on October 23’s Tony Stark: Iron Man #17, replacing co-writer Jim Zub with Christos Gage and artist Valerio Schiti with Francesco Manna. This issue is the second part of the title’s “The Ultron Agenda” arc.
Manna has worked previously on Tony Stark: Iron Man, and Gage has co-written numerous comics with Slott before.
Zub and Schiti remain solicited for September’s #16 and November’s #18.
The publisher didn’t give a reason for this change.
Here is the updated solicitation:

Is Tony Stark dead? Is he alive? Who can tell? Whatever he is, he IS Iron Man. And he’s all that’s standing in the way of Ultron Pym and everyone that Tony Stark loves. Or loved. Because Tony might be dead.
2020 is coming. The robot revolution has begun. So suit up, fleshbags. Suit up or die.
