UNCANNY AVENGERS TP VOL 01 COUNTER EVOLUTIONARY

Is that the Remender/Acuna one? What a great ... very strange ... book that was. I am not a huge, huge fan of Acuna as at times his art bleeds to my eyes, but I still enjoy him non-the-less. But Remender, while not as "on" as he was with his X-Force run, still just blew me away with this.

If it is the same arc I am thinking.  :D

It should be the same arc, that we're thinking. Remender came back after 'Axis', had his Uncanny Avengers relaunched as a new volume, wrote 6 issues, and was done!!

I like Acuna alot...but also, only at times. Sometimes it all just looks like weak-ass watercolor strokes, and other times he reminds me of Alex Toth without an inker; strong form buidling without the need for over-crosshatching to layer shading.
