The League of Assassins presses in on Strix and threatens to kill her friends in the Secret Six if she doesn't cooperate. She is then confronted by twisted replicas of her teammates, who she must face in combat one at a time. If she is beaten by any of them, the corresponding real member of the Six will be killed. Disoriented and alone, what chance does she-or her teammates-have to survive?

    I'll admit I haven't enjoyed this group as much as the previous incarnation of the Secret Six, but Gail Simone has finally sold me on Strix. I'm betting she, like the rest of the group, isn't going to go quietly into the night. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Strix is in the clutches of Lady Shiva and the League of Assassins, and it's up to the Secret Six to save her! Right after some grub...and recruiting help from some likely and unlikely friends. The art in this book looks a little hurried along and not up to the usual standard, but it doesn't take away from some great character moments, some gross and slicey fight scenes, and the usual dark humor we've come to expect from the series. Next issue is the last one, so expect a doozy!  Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Apr 29, 2016

    Secret Six continues the trend of being an equal combination of entertaining and frustrating. Every time this book builds some momentum, it gets in its own way. Whenever the narrative and writing is good, its followed by something bad. Moral of the story: Secret Six gives you whiplash. Read Full Review

    The opening sequence of this book has such heart, such emotion- something i wasn’t expecting from a book that is usually packed with humor, fighting and a bit of sexy-sexy-ness thrown in for good measure. Strix, though, is someone who has a lot of vulnerabilities to explore (for a former Talon of the Court of Owls) and this issue does just that. I like seeing Mr. Dibney (aka The Elongated Man) in this issue (if ever so briefly) and that we see Scandal Savage and her “lady friends” aka lesbian lovers propositioning Catman for a donation to their “lets make a baby” fund- a PERSONAL donation… then we see Strix getting introduced to her new digs in the League of Assassins, we get some explanation as to WHY Strix was chosen to join the League and we see the Bizarro Secret Six that Strix is to be pitted against. Seeing what Strix is capable of is really frightening. she was always such a calm and childlike sort in the group of murderers and thugs in the Secret Six- to see her so unleashed, is terrifying. i love this book, i loved this issue. the art is fantastic and the story is building up to something HUGE!
