Dark Reign reading help

After realizing how many tie ins "Dark Reign" consists of since it's not an actual event that's collected as a tpb, can anyone here drop some knowledge on only the essential reading required to get a grasp of Dark Reign before hopping into Siege? Thanks Phone Post 3.0

Don't worry about the tie ins. Stick to the main avengers books new and mighty/dark
Dark reign is awesome
