Marvel has officially terminated its contract with artist Ardian Syaf, in a press release given to its PR wing TV And Movies Dot Com. Their full statement is below.

"Marvel has terminated Ardian Syaf's contract effective immediately. 'X-Men Gold' #2 and #3 featuring his work have already been sent to the printer and will continue to ship bi-weekly. Issues #4, #5, and #6 will be drawn by R. B. Silva and issues #7, #8, and #9 will be drawn by Ken Lashley. A permanent replacement artist will be assigned to 'X-Men Gold' in the coming weeks."

X-Men Gold #2 and #3 will feature Syaf's artwork as it has already been sent to the printers, while issues 4-6 will be drawn by R.B. Silva and issues 7-9 will be drawn by Ken Lashley. Both were previously announced as rotating artists on the series. 

Yesterday, Syaf took to Facebook, posting that his career is over.

Hello, Worlds...

My career is over now.
It's the consequence what I did, and I take it.
Please no more mockery, debat, no more hate. I hope all in peace.

In this last chance, I want to tell you the true meaning of the numbers, 212 and QS 5:51.

It is number of JUSTICE. It is number of LOVE. My love to Holy Qur' love to the last prophet, the love to ALLAH, The One God.

My apologize for all the noise. Good bye, May God bless you all. I love all of you.

-Ardian Syaf-

Last weekend, eagle-eyed Indonesian readers noticed hidden messages in the artwork for X-Men Gold #1 Syaf had hidden, referencing the Qur'an and a protest and the mayor of Jakarta.
