Artist Daniel Acuna Signs DC Comics Exclusive

Official Press Release

Daniel Acuña, the artist whose spectacular work has graced recent covers on JLA and OUTSIDERS, has signed an exclusive agreement with DC Comics.

"It's unbelievable that DC, the publisher that gave me my favorite comics as a teenage fan, has offered me now this opportunity," says Acuña. "I can't stop asking myself if this isn't a dream. It's very exciting to be able to work with characters with such a long and magnificent history, characters that my father read when he was young. To me it's a real honor to have the chance to leave my mark on them."

"I'm simply astounded by Acuna's talent," says Editorial Art Director Mark Chiarello. "He is somehow able to blend the dynamics of American comic art with a sophisticated European graphic album style. His recent covers for the JLA and OUTSIDERS put him in that rarified air of super cover artists like Adam Hughes, Alex Ross and James Jean. This guy is great!"
