    Awesomeness!

    In order to fully appreciate and understand this book, one would've had to read every major Marvel crossover event since Avengers: Disassembled and the majority of the tie-ins that accompanied each crossover. Bendis has wittingly weaved a multi-piece saga with Siege being the final chapter. Full of action, drama, and even some comedy, Siege easily fits among, Avengers: Disassembled, House of M, Civil War, and Secret Invasion as one of the most impactful crossover events in a while. Coipel's artwork was nothing short of amazing. Every panel was colorful and wonderfully detailed bringing alive the action and drama Bendis was conveying. Again if you've been following Marvel's crossover events since 2004's Avengers: Disassembled than you must read this book. It brings all things to a close and begins the Marvel U anew. Do no pass this book up

    Staggering

    To say that being a Marvel fan these past 7 and more years is to commit to being very patient is an understatement. The universe has had its ebb and flow, and not every development has been pleasing or appeasing. But that's the nature of the game, and being a True Believer means you really have to stick and watch the picture unfold.

    Since Marvel comics span generations, that's a whole lot of patience to suffer. Threads and plotlines slide and slither across decades, in dozens of guises and countless twists. They're never-ending novels, unless poor sales cancel a title, and even then the concept and myth carries on in those titles that survive.

    And in the pages of this amalgamation of the main Siege storyline are contained some of the most fist-pumping-in-celebration, teeth-gnashing-in-suspense, out-of-breath moments that Marvel has been able to produce. I do not speak out of hyperbole.

    For starters is has in its equation one of the most succesful bad guy's that Marvel's submitted - Normie. Osbourne succeeded in ways that not only, at least from my perspective, eclipse the efforts of his fellow ne'er-do-wells in current comics, but also reflect a real anxiety I think is felt in modern culture.

    Perhaps not on as poetic and biting level as Watchmen, Norman's ascent to power really was an extraordinary display of Byzantine manipulation of a fearful and bewildered public, even a public likely as cynical of all things as the constantly bombarded by super villains Marvel public must be.

    As I pointed out, this has been brewing for years. From Avengers: Disassembled to here has been a long road and has involved, directly or indirectly, nearly every point of the Marvel compass, Mutant, Knight, Avenger, etc. My own journey down the reading path actually expanded my interests to characters and plots I would never have considered before. Daredevil? Was never interested until New Avengers tried to bring him in. Hawkeye? Didn't even care until he was gone, and then it was too late. Iron Man? Kind of never didn't think of him as a drunken whiner.

    These past years really resonated in me as an Avengers' fan. And to have them reunite against what is arguably one of the most palpable danger's they've faced in years? Priceless. Iron Man has latterly become a real favorite of mine, due in no small part to Robert Downey Jr., granted, but still! And The Mighty Thor, more than just another movie to look forward to, is back to form as the power house we know him to be.

    And Captain America. What is there to say? My favorite superhero, bar none. When he showed up it was like Indiana Jones, Luke Skywalker, and James Bond all pitching together into one big army of awesome to overthrow the Dark Reign.

    To cut this short, I urge you, strongly, to read this. If you're new story, it's okay. You can backtrack the past 7 years. Enjoy.

    Excellent Read, with a Triumphant Ending

    I've been out of the Marvel (and comics in general) loop for a few years, so I'm catching up on some things lately. I've grown to like Bendis's writing more than I thought I would. I found this collection to be totally enjoyable. I like Norman Osborn as a character, but it's nice to see the good guys have an undeniable victory (for a change) by the end of this story. Felt like it had been a long time coming. Good action sequences, excellent characterizations. Best graphic novel I've read on my Nook so far.

    A Fitting end to the Dark Reign

    While I was fan on the Dark Reign Arc, this was a welcome end to an Epic Marvel age that began with Avengers Disassembled. While I did not agree with every decision that Bendis made (the resolution to Sentry's storyline for example), it was a worthy conclusion and new beginning for the Avengers.
