Official Press Release
Marvel is proud to announce that, superstar artist Daniel AcuÃ±a will be the new ongoing artist of Avengers! Beginning with Avengers #18, AcuÃ±a joins Marvel Architect Brian Michael BendisÂ and pits the world's premiere super hero team against their biggest threat yet! Following the events of Fear Itself, the Avengers must regroup, and rebuild - including looking for new members as Norman Osborn pulls together a fresh batch of Dark Avengers.
"Every time Daniel and I have worked together it has been a really fantastic experience and everyone loved it," said Bendis. "The only thing we have never done Â before is hunker down and make a real run of things together. So here we go!"
Fans of both AcuÃ±a and Bendis cannot miss what the two have in store for the Avengers!
"As an artist and as a professional, I am extremely happy to be working with Brian again," said AcuÃ±a. "And come on, drawing the Avengers? They RULE! Aside from being the best, most charismatic team in comics - they always fight the biggest, meanest, and most powerful villains. All that, plus Captain America leading the team... what more can I ask for?!"
With a new roster on the horizon, who will Captain America call to join Earth's Mightiest? And can their combined might be enough to topple Norman's latest rise to power? Find out next month in Avengers #18!
