    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Feb 3, 2013

    Finally done with much of the buildup, this issue gets better by actually forming the basis of the team while getting us a conflict, thanks to some dense plotting and some terrific art. Hopefully, this means the plotting will now press on the pedals and speed up to some good action that we all know Jeff Parker can deliver. Read Full Review

    Dark Avengers is an odd book, being completely out of place in the Avengers line and standing apart from pretty much everything else on the shelves. This issue is a prime example of what makes it work well, with both the artwork and the storyline building an interesting and individual storyline that you would be unlikely to see in any other title. Now if we could only get rid of those spelling mistakes, this book would be nearly perfect. Read Full Review

    Dark Avengers isn't ground-breaking or universe shattering like Avengers but it is some old fashioned fun. It has great characters running the gauntlet in an alternate universe where there is definitely more going on behind the scenes while trying to find a way out. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Mike Cassella Feb 4, 2013

    It's rare for a comic to exist using established superheroes and being unpredictable in terms of possibilities. Characters don't often have consequences befall them like they used to and the rare moment when a book comes along with the promise of that kind of consequence, yields hope for a fun and entertaining time. Because Jeff Parker is a trust name for me in comics, I will continue with this storyline until completion to judge. So far elements are fun and off the wall, but it seems that every third beat falls a little flat and that feels more like the fault of unlikable characters he's mandated to use more than his own flaws moving the pieces around.

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Feb 4, 2013

    Perhaps that's the real flaw. As readers, we expect super-villains to lose, but here we have to buy into their success even though they're barely reacting to their situation, much less giving us a reason to want them to escape. Three issues into a storyline, there needs to be a bigger reason than "because it's their book," but for now, the series seems uninterested in presenting one. Read Full Review
