When mutant riots break out in San Francisco, Norman Osborn declares martial law and sends the Dark Avengers in to quell the riots and take down the X-Men. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Don’t miss the first Avengers/X-Men crossover in over 15 years! Rated T …$3.99

    Again, Fraction isn't exactly breaking new ground with Dark Avengers and Uncanny X-men, but he executes so adeptly here that it almost feels like it. What's more, he doesn't allow Dark Reign to derail some of the themes he's been working on since taking the helm of Uncanny in the first place. That alone makes this book stand out a bit from the pack, making it a rare reward in a crowded field of oppressive tie-ins. Read Full Review

    Messiah War has really disappointed me and as that series ties up this week also, it’s great to see X-Men fans getting a second bite at the cherry for an epic crossover in 2009. Like Fraction’s Uncanny X-Men, Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Utopia feels classic but also fresh and new and I’m eagerly awaiting the next issue to see where this crossover leads both flagship titles.
