Secret Warriors was supposed to run around 60 issues. But writer Jonathan Hickman decided to kick his story in high gear and end the series with issue 28. Since I went all out with volume 1 and included all kinds of related material it left volume 2 with very little material in comparison. How did I try to balance it out?
The power struggle between Hydra, Leviathan and Nick Fury has cost each side dearly, forcing Fury to reassess his future following the deaths of two of his oldest friends. But with a massive attack on a Seattle Hydra base, Leviathan and Hydra again make war – on each other and the world. As night falls and Seattle explodes, Fury makes some of the grittiest life-and-death choices his Warriors have ever seen. And as the long fight between the Secret Warriors and Hydra draws to its inevitable conclusion, Fury’s final wild card is revealed. Who are the members of his third covert team, and what have they been up to all this time?
