    There is a nice note at the end by Jonathan Hickman thanking all the people that helped him make Secret Warriors. He of course thanks the fans who stayed with what was a simple Dark Reign crossover book and made it into a monthly title. This was one those titles that floated under the radar, which aren't controlled by outside forces like Editors or what movie is coming out.

Though it often mimicked the form of decompressed storytelling across its six trade paperback-sized arcs, Hickmans opus was, in reality, anything but, packing in more ideas, conflicts and mysteries than it once seemed hed have time to resolve. That aspect, combined with informed references to decades worth of its publishers continuity, created a grand sense of scale and scope that defied the books brevity as well as the sales numbers it constantly struggled to raise.

    "Secret Warriors" only lasted for two-and-a-half years and, in that time, it became a steady assurance of quality every month. It was a book that demanded patience and thought, active readers who were willing to follow Hickman where he wanted to go, and not expect immediate explanations. It was a slow burn that ultimately paid off. It will be missed. Read Full Review
