    Overall, this was a great issue, a great look at three different heroes and villains. Now I'm more inclined to check out the previous issues and add it to my regular pull-list as well. Oh and that cover featuring Wonder Woman, by Lee Bermejo, is absolutely excellent as well. Ferocity and elegance both. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 27, 2014

    This issue really surprised me in the fact that I liked it.  I came in with my normal attitude "What are you going to show me that I don't already know DC?"  Putting my jerk off attitude aside, it seems they did have something to show me and I like to think that I'm better for the experience.  All the artwork worked well for each story.  Even Wonder Woman's section, which I didn't like when first viewing, grew on me and I like that they went with the retro style.  It all worked well and besides for some issues I had with some of the dialog in the Wonder Woman section, this has got to be the best issue of Secret Origins I've read because.......... Well, there were actually "Secret Origins".  Go check it out and see what I mean, I don't think you'll regret it. Read Full Review

    For the Wonder Woman fans, Secret Origins #6 gives you an essential bit of the magnum opus that ends next week in Wonder Woman #35. You also get some art and story for two other great characters. Not a bad read at all. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 25, 2014

    Still, given how charming the Wonder Woman origin is, I'm inclined to forgive this book for a number of its sins, and if we add in the nice Deadman moments (as well one of the better treatments of Nanda Parbat since Denny O'Neil), I think I can accept Sinestro's story as the origin of a monstrous jerk and move on. Secret Origins #6 is interestingly timed, coming as this creative team leaves Wonder Woman's book, but gives us a nice scope on three very different aspects of the New 52 DCU. Read Full Review

    Before next week brings the end of Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang's run on Wonder Woman, Secret Origins brings us the chronological beginning, with a simple, fun tale about a young Diana on Paradise Island. While some of this is a re-tread of earlier Wonder Woman issues from their run, it's still fun to read. Plus, there are some really fun interactions between Aleka and Diane, a set up for Steve Trevor and Diana's relationship, and more. The art by Goran Sudzuka is, of course, amazing, just as the art has been for the past three years on Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman - 9.5/10 While I don't read "Justice League Dark", the origin given for Deadman is fantastic. It starts with a sympathetic background, shows how the abuse affected him as an adult, and sets him on a path of redemption after he dies. The writing, while having an older feel, works really well. The artwork is fantastic, and overall, the origin is really solid. Deadman - 9/10 The majority of Sinestro's origin isn't anything new if you've read Geoff Johns' run on Green Lantern, or have at least a passing knowledge of Green Lantern lore. What Cullen Bunn adds are the elements of Sinestro's childhood, getting his ring at first, his nationalistic tendencies, and how he forged the yellow rings on Quard. While I'm glad there's a lot that I knew, since it means Sinestro hasn't changed because of the New 52, it does make reading the origin a bit of a chore. The new aspects are really good, so that helps. The artwork is really good, focused on detail on backgrounds, and little elements like that. Sinestro - 9/10 Overall, this issue comes highly recommended.
