I'm reading a lot of Dark Reign books at the moment and this book ties into the tapestry very well.
The 'trouble' with my local library is that they get pretty much all the collections of the major superhero crossovers! Thus I have been slowly working my way through most of the Dark Reign books over the last 6 months. I spread it out because I am too much of an old-school fan to enjoy so much cynicism, negativity and occasionally plain rubbish in a concentrated dose. The fanboy nerdist in me argues that Dark Reign was conceived and told as a line-wide story involving the whole MU, so I feel I have to read it as such.
I do have more to say on this, but I will keep it short here, as this isn't the place for the big Dark Reign/state of the MU discussion. I mention it here, because I am reaching the end of my Dark Reign reading, and my library has recently added Avengers: The Initiative. Dreams & nightmares, containing issues 26-30 to it's burgeoning collection. The fanboy nerdist in me will have to read it before I move on to the Siege-branded books.
I've enjoyed this thread immensely and since we've made an excellent start, I would like to talk about the winddown of the Initiative project here once I've read the final issues. I know that the Initiative continues on into its own Seige storyline too.
Who's with me? Jason? Anyone?
