    This is great news.Acuna is one of my favorite new artists,another fine addition to Marvel's already smokin' art dept.

    Acuna's most recent work includes Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters,Green Lantern,as well as The Flash with Mark Waid.

    I forgot to add that his first assignment is the Eternals ongoing with the Knaufs at the helm.

    Perfect fit in my opinion.

    Eternals ongoing? I'll check it out, but that book is SO canceled.

    As long as they keep him away from anything I'm interested in, fine. The Eternals is a good start in that direction.

    Acuna's art is good and he should fit in fine on ETERNALS. It sold well with Gaimen & Romita Jr. on it, and I am not sure how long it'll last without those names. But I'll give it a shot.

    Still isn't as wiggy as Bagley moving to DC. I mean that's like Joe Torre on the Dodgers...oh, wait...;)

    Acuna is a good artist but I just don't really like his style.

    I don't hate him. I wish him all the best, so long as he isn't drawing something I want to read, because I don't like his art.

    Sweet!

    I guess Waid's Flash is in trouble though.

    Wow, Acuna for Bagley...very interesting developments.

    Acuna was moved from the Flash anyway. This is probably why.

    I suspect he knew the Flash was a turkey and wanted to get outta there before it further pushed him into the lower teir artist league.

    I mean this guy should have been on a JLA or better yet Green Lantern.

    The art looks good. Will the work be turned in on time?

    So sad... his work looks good, but I have to feel superstar coming from the artist to not complain (much) when the book is late. Oh well.

    Yeah, but that was a mini, and he probably had some lead time.

    It really depends on how much lead time he has. I expect a fill in artist every now and then on Eternals.
