Why is Dark Reign so Confusing?
A blogger/fan, speaks his mind about Dark Reign...
Before you read the blog post from Dante Maddox, on Craveonline.com/comics, I would like to say I love Dark Reign. I completely agree with Dante. I went, yesterday, to pick up this weeks comics and I paid $60 dollars for all of these Dark Reign issues. Not to mention next week, somewhere near 12 or 13 issues of Dark Reign comes out. I mean, there are new comics coming out like Dark Wolverine. Might be a tad excessive and Marvel may be a little too arrogant in attempting to tie-in all of these characters. Now to the post....
I now want to focus on the story aspect of Dark Reign. I wish there was a central book to follow, but I believe that Dark Avengers is the focal point for the story. Than the branch off stories, at least have something to latch onto. I really like the Hawkeye story-arch and I am liking the Spider-man storyline also. I can not imagine what DR Wolverine is possibly going to be like or how they will bring Wolverine into. I want to know where this is all going. I really, really want to believe that there is going to be some kind of cataclysmic finish. But to be honest. I have no clue how they are going to do it. If DR ends with Captain America coming back to life and killing Osborn. I will start buying different comics. That will be such a waste of time. There are so many great Heroes involved that they have much better options. I wish Marvel would pull the cord on all of these comics. I bought the Hood, but there does not need to be a tie-in. The Cabal one-shot is pretty cool, but not worth it. I bought Mr. Negative, but do not really know anything about him, worth it? Zodiac #1 and Sinister Spider-man #1 comes out on Wednesday. Zodiac? While cool, does it fit into Dark Reign, with the Dark Avengers? Sinister Spider-man, however will fit, because it is Venom running around pretending to be Spider-man and part of Osborn's plan. Plus, Venom is awesome! I love the DR storyline and enjoy the archs. Mainly because it is cool to see what the characters are doing while outside of the main story. Like watching a movie, which follows every character in the movie, especially when they are not in the main storyline. It is cool, but a lot to follow. I am trying though. I also I wish I was able to get my hands on Deadpool #1-11. Just to see what Deadpool has to say about all of this. To end this rant. I really enjoy following this, but I wish it was more closely knit. I know I will not buy New Avengers, Mighty Avengers, Elektra, or the Ms. Marvel DR archs. Other than Ms. Marvel they are not really involved. I think that Secret Warriors and Iron man will be the most important storylines to follow, so I agree with Dante. I think that the X-men storylines will have a big impact. Right now nothing can stop Osborn. Someone has to. I would love a form-up of the Heroes shown in the Iron Patriot Act Illustration, here is hoping. It would also be cool, if a bunch of Villains rose up and destroyed Osborn. I just hope Marvel knows how to end this. Because "The Darkest Night" is coming out and if done right. Marvel may be F-ed! What do you think? How do you think Dark Reign will end? Are you getting tired of trying to follow the storyline? Let me know
