    But even though the issue surpassed my expectations and eased my worries about the Thunderbolts crossover derailing this title, I'm still not thrilled to see Norman Osborn and Dark Reign playing such a big role in this book. I much preferred when Fury and his warriors were battling the likes of H.Y.D.R.A. and uncovering the depths of S.H.I.E.L.D. corruption, and I sincerely hope Hickman pushes the series back into that territory.

    This book is at its best when the kids are at the forefront, as they are this month. Though still not perfect, Vitti is also coming into his own. Read Full Review

    This comic seems to be flying somewhat under the radar, but it's very good, and well worth following. Can't say the same for all of its crossovers, though. Read Full Review

    As always, "Secret Warriors" surprises and builds to a cliffhanger conclusion that doesn't feel forced but makes you want to come back next issue to see what happens. With "Dark Reign " The List: Secret Warriors" shipping next week, the wait won't be long, thankfully. Read Full Review

    Despite the number of negatives on this quick shot review, I still enjoyed this issue quite a bit. In fact, the negatives are mostly nitpicking on my part. Not the best issue of Secret Warriors, but definitely a solid read worth checking out. Read Full Review
