    Comic Vine - Matt Demers Aug 3, 2011

    I'm giving this issue a rare five-star review because I think it deserves every bit of it. As a long-time reader, I can appreciate where this title has come from (in Villains United) to where it ends, here. This issue wrapped up everything about the series in one package without sacrificing tone, character or plot; it brings everything full circle, and leaves me with a sense of closure that we don't often get in comics.

    I can't end this review any better than by simply thanking Creator, Gail Simone, and artist J. Calafiore for bringing the greatest superhero comic book series in history into the hands of readers like me. As much as I wish that the Secret Six was a part of the new 52, I think I can rest easy with this ending and let go. I've come to terms with the ending and needn't any reboot nor revamping. They went out in the best way possible. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - SoldierHawk Aug 5, 2011

    Oh, how I wish all wonderful and brilliant series' were given a send off this good. Sad as the ending may be, I don't think any fan of the series could argue that it was anything but inevitable, and it allowed this hardened and cynical characters to reveal sides of themselves that might otherwise never have surfaced. Brilliant. Read Full Review

    IGN - Erik Norris Aug 3, 2011

    For the die-hard Secret Six readers out there, this final issue is everything you could have hoped for. The only reason it's not getting a perfect score is because J. Calafiore's layouts for the book's double-page splashes are a little hard to follow, if I'm being honest. Otherwise, Secret Six #36 is exactly the type of conclusion we were hoping this team of misfits would get. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 8, 2011

    I'll hold out hope, because Gail Simone's already performed one miracle. She took an under-utilized Bat-villain from my childhood who had become a joke and turned him into one kick-ass anti-hero. If she can do that for Catman who's to say she won't find a way to resurrect the Secret Six as well? Read Full Review

    Secret Six was another little comic that could; month after month it chugged along providing superlative characters, clever dialogue and some great stories. With Secret Six Gail Simone created a comic for the ages. And I hope our merry band of damaged misfit villains return to the DCU very soon. Read Full Review

    Well, this was the last issue of the Secret Six. I have to say, it's been quite the journey... There were a few peaks, but sadly, there were more valleys. Fortunately, this series ended on a high note, as I found myself really enjoying this issue. Bane's plan to break Bats was sound, with the only flaw being his choice of team members, since they themselves were so flawed. I didn't really care for the whole, “blaze of glory” thing the team was going for as they staged their final assault on the gathered heroes, but I can understand why Gail Simone wrote it, since there was really no other way to end this one... The Six weren't going to surrender, and there was no way for them to escape. A suicide attack was really the only way this series could have logically concluded. Sadly Ragdoll didn't die, but since I didn't see him in the epilogue, I'm going to say that he did perish, just to make myself feel better. Read Full Review

    The art is a bit stiff and too many of the female characters have the same face but at least it manages to tell a very complex story in a very limited space. Read Full Review
