3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly what I had expected Sept. 13 2011
I don't normally write reviews but I think in this case I wanted to just to let other potential buyers know what they are getting.

Dark Reign: Accept Change, is not a linear story arc outlining the events of a marvel major event. Instead, what this book is is more of a cross-section of the varying plot-lines that are taking place in the Marvel Universe in the wake of Secret Invasion with Norman Osborn in power. The book has some interesting stories from New Avengers, Uncanny X-men, Dark Avengers, as well as other. However, there is no resolution to any story here, and in the end what you get is more of an appetizer for other books than a complete story.

Beyond that, The book also contains a wealth of editorial with Marvel Spotlight features about all of the books within interviewing their respective writers. It also contains character bios and lots of tertiary information which will appeal to perhaps more avid or mainstream comic readers.

Ultimately, if you are like myself, and have picked up trades of events like civil war, secret invasion, and house of m you'll find yourself disappointed with the contents of this book. However, if you're a reader who is collecting all the various story-arcs of the Dark Reign saga, you will likely find a lot in this book to like.

1.0 out of 5 stars TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY Nov. 28 2009
By Bryan_D - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Do not buy this. Over half the book consists of interviews with creators of Marvel comics about events that have now already happened. The only really interesting inclusions are Secret Invasion: Dark Reign and Dark Avengers 1, both of which are collected in more worthwhile trades. If you care about these big events, you are probably already reading the fabulous New Avengers, penned by Brian Michael Bendis. Volume 10 of the New Avengers collections contains Secret Invasion: Dark Reign, as well as several issues of New Avengers. And it's cheaper than this!

If you are interested in following the dastardly exploits of Norman Osborn, you may be interested in Dark Avengers, also by Bendis. It's almost a companion to New Avengers, as there is a fair amount of interplay. Volume 1 contains, of course, Dark Avengers 1.

So there you go - don't buy this, buy one or both of those books. For me, Bendis is the best Marvel scribe of the current day, and New Avengers is the best title. I enjoyed Dark Avengers as well, more than I thought I would.

2.0 out of 5 stars Short and not sweet - A waste of money for most Dec 1 2009
By P. W. West - Published on Amazon.com
This book is only good if you do not plan on collecting other Dark Reign TPB or comics. The person who will get the most out of this is the person who wants to buy 1 TPB to get a little history on Dark Regin and then read the comics as they come out now. If you plan on collecting the back issues or the other Dark Regin books, then this book will be mostly useless to you.
3.0 out of 5 stars eh, s'okay May 19 2014
By Alex Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Accept change wasn't a bad read, but if you got the complete dark avengers omni, its more/less irrelevant. Simple back stories that don't help the main plot and the only story that does, is already in the dark avengers saga.
2.0 out of 5 stars Warning: lots of behind-the-scenes and brief character biography included. Dec 9 2013
By THowerton - Published on Amazon.com
The two stars above is not for the quality of some of the stories in this collection, it's for the fact that many of these longer stories are found elsewhere and that half of this tome is a Marvel Spotlight (with interviews of the creative artists and orchestrators of the "Dark Reign" storyline) and a truncated Marvel Universe of sorts of mostly villains, formatted as if they are from Osborn's own synopsis server files. These take up over half of what is a thick book and, while containing interesting and insightful information, are not in themselves actual parts of the larger "Dark Reign" storyline comics.

There are some small (six-page or so) stories that are throwaways in here. For my money the most fascinating story collected in here (and one I hadn't run across already) was how the history of Prince Namor and Emma Frost has intertwined throughout history with cat-and-mouse being played by both sides (from Uncanny X-Men #2).

For those looking for behind-the-scenes accounts and a glut of statistical info, you've found what you're looking for in this collection. For others, like myself, who were thinking that we were going to get a large collection of "Dark Reign" stories, well, the amount that we get in comparison to the thickness of the book disappointments.

2.0 out of 5 stars Marvel Mediocrity Feb. 18 2012
By Bismarck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
On the whole, this TPB was a disappointment. While the plots are interesting enough, and necessary material for reading the later Siege and Utopia line, the collection itself is pathetic. Over half of this TPB is just Bendis being full of himself and talking about how he came up with the idea in the transcript of an interview. The four comics collected here are mostly fine, but the story line *SPOILERS* of one of them, involving Skrulls disguised as cows, is pathetic in concept and artwork. Not Marvel's best work. The comics that make this worthwhile are those involving Emma Frost. That's it. On the whole, the artwork is also not much to write home about. I would suggest just following the Uncanny Xmen title held within and skipping the rest. You're better off spending your money on works by Morrison, Whedon, Aaron or Straczynski. Aside from House of M, Avengers Disassembled, and most of Siege, Bendis's work is not great.
