Bio:
In college, Acuña studied in painting and graduated with a degree in Fine Arts. He cites his early influences as Jack Kirby, the John Romitas, Will Eisner, Simon Bisley, Kevin Nowlan, Hal Foster, and his favorite, Richard Corben, along with fine artists such as Edward Hopper, Alfons Mucha, and Drew Struzan.

His first published work was a 22-page project, Claus & Simon in Hollywood, with fellow artist Santi Arcas, which was bought by Spanish publisher La Cupula when Acuña was 22. This work was followed by Claus & Simon: Freakshow, and Claus & Simon: Disaster Box. The "Claus & Simon" series is about the adventures of two men, one a clown, and the other pained like a dinosaur. The stories were reprinted by French publisher �ditions Albin Michel and popular American magazine Heavy Metal (under the title Claus & Simon: Kings of Escape).

Claus & Simon increased Acuña's profile in Europe, and he received work painting the European paperback covers to Alan Moore's Supreme, which led to Acuña's decision to try to break into the American market while still remaining active in the European comics industry.

Acuña's first work in the American comics industry was for Marvel Comics, on a miniseries for Axel Alonso that was never completed or published. DC Comics editor Eddie Berganza later hired him to paint pictures of Ravager and Blackfire for Teen Titans/Outsiders Secret Files. This work got Acuña noticed by Mark Chiarello, who suggested him to editors Mike Carlin and Joan Hilty as a cover artist for the Justice League of America and Outsiders series.

Although only doing American-market covers up until this point, Acuña made the move to interior art with Uncle Sam & the Freedom Fighters, on which he did the covers, pencils, inks, graytones and even character design, working with European colorist Javi Montes.

In late 2005 it was announced that Acuña had signed a two-year exclusive contract with DC Comics. However in 2007 it was announced that Acuña had signed an exclusive contract with Marvel Comics, to start in 2008, and would be leaving DC Comics. Acuña has previously only done covers for Marvel; his first interior work for the publisher will be The Eternals, starting in June 2008.

Acuña is currently based out of �guilas, Spain.
