    Recently I have looking for Marvel Comics to get and came upon Dark Avengers and wanted to know whether it was worth a look or not.

    You'll get a lot of people nay saying it, but it's a spiritual successor to Thunderbolts. It's personally my favorite Avengers book on the market.

    I don't like it, but what are some other titles you like so people could better know your tastes?

    Dark Avengers has been a fun little ride (aside from these last few issues - but that's mostly because I don't give a rat's ass about Sentry or his mental problems). I'm actually a little sad that Dark Reign is coming to an end so soon, if for no other reason than it means this book is ending.

    I'm hoping Victoria Hand is still in something when this is all over, I've grown rather fond of her over the last year.

    New, Dark and Initiative are all ending and being replaced by new Avenger titles. I think there is a thread about it a few pages back.

    I loved Dark Avengers, especially the interactions between all the sociopaths on the team. Sometimes it was just like "Which one of us is the craziest?" Hopefully Thunderbolts will pick up some of the characters. I love Bullseye and Venom.

    Dark Avengers is actually pretty good. Better than Mighty Avengers for sure.

    True. DA was pretty good. I'd say at this point, pick up the first trade.

    Dark Avengers is great. It's a mix of Might Avengers (preDark) and Thunderbolts (under Osborne).

    IMO, Dark Reign is one of the best crossover events in Marvel's history. It has been better than House of M, more than Civil War, WW Hulk and certainly more than the Skrull invasion (I'm sorry, they spent years planning it and they got their butts kicked in a week or two - lame).

    7-8 are collected in the X-Men/Dark Avengers "Utopia" trade.

    I read the first volume and the X-Men crossover. They were both great.
