    Marvel Disassembled - thepuremood May 30, 2013

    As the Dark Avengers return to their home, Parker treats us to a wonderful epilogue that reminds us just how far these characters have come in a small amount of issues. Though their future is unclear (well, except Ai Apec's) I think it was smart to end on a note of hope, to remind us that even the weirdest characters of the Marvel Universe occasionally get a series just like this one, a series that seemingly has no rules, that plays off on the fringe of continuity, and is able to tell much different stories as a result. DARK AVENGERS was a weird book filled with characters I never cared for, but it was also one of my favourite Marvel on-goings, and I genuinely looked forward to reading and reviewing it every month. It will be missed! Read Full Review

    Am I nostalgic? Yeah. Am I sad? Hell no. My long boxes aren't going anywhere, and it's only a matter of time before something else captures my attention, and my heart, like Thunderbolts/Dark Avengers. It's just going to take a handful of perfect pieces. Boomerang is probably one of them. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto May 31, 2013

    I look forward to where these characters end up next now that Jeff Parker has given them a purpose, which is to search for a purpose. While more of this arc could have been dedicated to the main Dark Avengers, Dark Avengers #190 showcased what would be considered a strange team for mainstream comic books, and proved them justifiable amidst Marvel's vast line up.

    There's even a letter from Jeff Parker at the end of the issue, thanking the fans and the rest of the creative team he's been working with for the past few issues. I always like it when writers take the time to do this, it really shows that they care about the series they've been writing, and that they're as invested as the readers can get. Personally, I've found Parker's run on Thunderbolts and then subsequently on Dark Avengers reinvigorated the series and took it in some interesting new directions, constantly changing the status quo of the series and keeping my attention for over 50 issues. This series will be missed, even if it's just by me. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jun 2, 2013

    While it cannot be proclaimed as the perfect finale to a title ever being conceived, Jeff Parker does elevate a lot of the strength of the title with an emphasis on action and several conclusions in big ways as he closes the title and the world he has created. Read Full Review

    "Dark Avengers" #190, like most of Parker's work on the title (and "Thunderbolts" before it) is simply enjoyable. Sure, characters have a stake in the story, but the story doesn't lose focus on itself. Jeff Parker has performed admirably in his stint with Marvel and has drummed up attention for scads of underused characters, proving that every character has good stories in them, as long as there's a good writer at the helm of those stories.
