6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Pacman on 8 Jan 2010
Format: Paperback
Its become a bit of a hobby horse of mine but marvels habit of padding out Bendis's graphic novels with filler really gets my goat. The comic part of this is fine, good artwork, generally tight writing an enjoyable read, unfortunately this accounts for only about half of the page count. The rest of the book consists of an interview with the author and marvel universe character profiles (interesting to some I am sure...but not what I paid for).

Format: Paperback
The stories from Dark Reign: New Nation, Secret Invasion: Dark Reign, Dark Avengers #1 and Uncanny X-Men Annual #2 are collected, along with Marvel Spotlight: Dark Reign and Dark Reign Files, as Dark Reign: Accept Change TPB (Graphic Novel Pb). This is a sort of introductory volume explaining just who is in charge now - Norman Osborn - and giving previews of several new minor series and plot threads, along with Emma Frost's back-story (and highlights of her long history with Namor), as well as interviews with some of the creators. It is a bit of a mixed bag, with varying quality of art, or at least styles of art. As far as the story goes, the common theme is Norman Osborn setting up shop and putting people in their places.

THE SPOILER ZONE
"Secret Invasion: Dark Reign" primarily consists of Norman Osborn chairing a meeting consisting of Emma Frost, Doctor Doom, Prince Namor, The Hood, and Loki. He explains to everyone what they can or can't do in the New World Order, with much entertaining sneering and threats, and a bit of counter-plotting.

"Dark Reign: New Nation" is a collection of short pieces setting up a number of new series: Nick Fury and the Secret Warriors; the Agents of Atlas; War Machine, Skrull Kill Crew; and Hawkeye and Mockingbird in the New Avengers: Reunion.

"Uncanny X-Men Annual #2" gives us the story of Emma Frost's relationship with Sebastian Shaw, Prince Namor, and Norman Osborn. I don't know how much of this has been seen in the regular comic series, but here it is presented as a single episodic story spread over an unspecified length of time.

It's the begining of a long nightmare for the Marvel Universe and we are the witnesses of a big tragedy to come (Siege). Great reading, but a bit under Secret Invasion.

This book was of an excellent quality

But the story in it wasn't as in depth as I would like

TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY 29 Nov 2009
By Bryan_D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Do not buy this. Over half the book consists of interviews with creators of Marvel comics about events that have now already happened. The only really interesting inclusions are Secret Invasion: Dark Reign and Dark Avengers 1, both of which are collected in more worthwhile trades. If you care about these big events, you are probably already reading the fabulous New Avengers, penned by Brian Michael Bendis. Volume 10 of the New Avengers collections contains Secret Invasion: Dark Reign, as well as several issues of New Avengers. And it's cheaper than this!

If you are interested in following the dastardly exploits of Norman Osborn, you may be interested in Dark Avengers, also by Bendis. It's almost a companion to New Avengers, as there is a fair amount of interplay. Volume 1 contains, of course, Dark Avengers 1.

So there you go - don't buy this, buy one or both of those books. For me, Bendis is the best Marvel scribe of the current day, and New Avengers is the best title. I enjoyed Dark Avengers as well, more than I thought I would.

Short and not sweet - A waste of money for most 1 Dec 2009
By P. W. West - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is only good if you do not plan on collecting other Dark Reign TPB or comics. The person who will get the most out of this is the person who wants to buy 1 TPB to get a little history on Dark Regin and then read the comics as they come out now. If you plan on collecting the back issues or the other Dark Regin books, then this book will be mostly useless to you.
eh, s'okay 19 May 2014
By Alex Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Accept change wasn't a bad read, but if you got the complete dark avengers omni, its more/less irrelevant. Simple back stories that don't help the main plot and the only story that does, is already in the dark avengers saga.
Warning: lots of behind-the-scenes and brief character biography included. 9 Dec 2013
By THowerton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The two stars above is not for the quality of some of the stories in this collection, it's for the fact that many of these longer stories are found elsewhere and that half of this tome is a Marvel Spotlight (with interviews of the creative artists and orchestrators of the "Dark Reign" storyline) and a truncated Marvel Universe of sorts of mostly villains, formatted as if they are from Osborn's own synopsis server files. These take up over half of what is a thick book and, while containing interesting and insightful information, are not in themselves actual parts of the larger "Dark Reign" storyline comics.

There are some small (six-page or so) stories that are throwaways in here. For my money the most fascinating story collected in here (and one I hadn't run across already) was how the history of Prince Namor and Emma Frost has intertwined throughout history with cat-and-mouse being played by both sides (from Uncanny X-Men #2).

For those looking for behind-the-scenes accounts and a glut of statistical info, you've found what you're looking for in this collection. For others, like myself, who were thinking that we were going to get a large collection of "Dark Reign" stories, well, the amount that we get in comparison to the thickness of the book disappointments.

Marvel Mediocrity 18 Feb 2012
By Bismarck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
On the whole, this TPB was a disappointment. While the plots are interesting enough, and necessary material for reading the later Siege and Utopia line, the collection itself is pathetic. Over half of this TPB is just Bendis being full of himself and talking about how he came up with the idea in the transcript of an interview. The four comics collected here are mostly fine, but the story line *SPOILERS* of one of them, involving Skrulls disguised as cows, is pathetic in concept and artwork. Not Marvel's best work. The comics that make this worthwhile are those involving Emma Frost. That's it. On the whole, the artwork is also not much to write home about. I would suggest just following the Uncanny Xmen title held within and skipping the rest. You're better off spending your money on works by Morrison, Whedon, Aaron or Straczynski. Aside from House of M, Avengers Disassembled, and most of Siege, Bendis's work is not great.
