While not a huge crossover event, Secret Warriors #7 and #8 are crossing over into issues #135 and #136 of the Thunderbolts series as Nick Fury takes the fight to Norman Osborn.

Editor Bill Rosemann explained, “Nick Fury vs. Norman Osborn? The Secret Warriors vs. the Thunderbolts? Andy Diggle and Jonathan Hickman trying to one-up one another? Miguel Sepulveda and Alessandro Vitti out for blood? Something tells me this is going to get messy”

    Ah, a perfect jumping off point for someone sick of Secret Warriors. It’s basically the last incarnation of New Warriors with a better hyped creative team and sucks hard enough to pull paint off walls. adios…
