    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 4, 2016

    The problem with this book is that is has amazing artwork and amazing characters and a compelling story that is well-written and nicely paced while being eminently readable. What's that you say? You don't consider these "problems?" Then why aren't you reading Secret Six? And if you are reading Secret Six, why aren't you buying two and three copies every month? Why aren't you buying issues by the baleful and slipping them inconspicuously into pediatric office waiting rooms and onto church bulletin boards? I'm really going to miss this team, both the creative and the fictional one, but before they take their bows it looks like they're pulling out all the stops. Hop on while you can! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 27, 2016

    Some wonderful character work and breathtaking art combine, but there's a hint of swan song in these pages that makes me sad... Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Ethan Hatchett Mar 23, 2016

    This issue The Secret Six features strong characterization. Each of the characters feel alive and unique. They each are quirky in their own special way. They act and react like real people. It really speaks to the strength of Gail Simone's writing that I can say this about the crazy cast of characters. I even liked Batgirl (I haven't read any of her new series), which was a surprise. Another testament to the writing is, while I jumped into this series late the story was still incredibly engaging. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 5, 2016

    It seems our group is ready for another heroic rescue of a teammate from herself. The question is, when the dust settles who will still be standing? And, if the tease we see at the beginning of the issue is true, are we finally going to see Scandal Savage‘s path become more intertwined with the group? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Mar 23, 2016

    Overall,Secret Six #12 is another solid issue in a series that feels like it's being unfortunately cut short. The series has done an excellent job building on it's cast, and despite this issue sidelining them a bit in favour of Batgirl, there's still a lot of great payoff for fans. If you've been reading the series, you should definitely pick this up, if you haven't? You're the reason I'll never truly be happy. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Mar 23, 2016

    Secret Six #12 was a quick, fun, and engaging read. Gail Simone crafts an engaging script with tight action sequences and strong emotional moments for a number of different characters. What she does best is create the family feel of the team, showing how much each of the characters feels for each other. The artwork was very solid with some slick action panels mimicking the motion of Shiva's staff. There were some jarring issues with the art including Batgirl's odd neck in one panel. You will definitely want to pick this up if you have been following the series and if you are just looking to jump in, it's not a bad place to start. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 23, 2016

    Once again, this book disappoints me, and it's based off of some really poor decisions. If I had to make an assessment of why this book keeps falling short, I would say that Simone's heart isn't into it. There's no validation for that comment, but aside from some brief moments throughout the current run, there just doesn't appear to be much passion behind the writing" and it shows. At this point, I'm just hoping that the books improves slightly to end on a higher note. Read Full Review

    I wont give it away-but best ending ever (well in quite awhile)! Another one of DCs books that offers solid stories with interesting characters. For some reason books like this don't seem to get the interest that they should.

    This issue ends with the tagline "next issue: it just gets weird", which is saying something because THIS issue was weird. Batgirl joins in a fight with the Secret Six against Shiva Woosan, apparently of the League of Assassins. Batgirl gives up her awesome yellow boots. Strix beats up a bunch of armed guards, and everyone decide to come to Strix (aka her actual name " Mary ")'s rescue. Also there is some weird love triangle/sperm donor page at the beginning, and quite the shocker of a last scene- PLUS the biggest shock of the last page. So things get weird NOW?? OH, honey, they've BEEN WEIRD.
