    Gail Simone perfectly captures the pure essence of everything that made her original series phenomenally great. Relatable villains? Check. Heartfelt moments? Check. Ensuing hilarity? Check again. A mind-blowing, cliffhanging, double-reveal that will leave fans reeling? You better believe that's a check. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Jun 19, 2015

    Overall, Secret Six #3 is a terrific comic that should make its way into everyones comic selection. While you could go back and read the previous issues, Id actually say this marks a perfect jump on point for the comic. The characters are introduced really well, given a lot of personality and a final page twist will have you coming back for more. This is exactly the sort of fun, off-beat book DC have been trying to deliver more of in recent months and it fires on all cylinders. If this level of quality can remain consistent and keep up with a reasonable shipping schedule then we could be looking at my new favourite DC book. Read Full Review

    Secret Six is back and they've decided to bring the fun as a way to get us all on the trolley with what this series is about.  I loved seeing the team come together here and Dale Eaglesham's art was great as always.    Hopefully this series can get back on a regular schedule because I could easily see it being one of my favorite titles.

    This series was off to a rough start, but this month's issue should give long time fans hope that lightning can strike twice. Simone's team of misfit malcontents may not be back to their full glory yet, but this is definitely a step in the right, yet very wrong, direction. Read Full Review

    Secret Six #3 is a largely enjoyable experience that one me over evenbefore it reached a plot twist and a considerable cliff-hanger. To put it simply: here's a title that's just too good to miss so by all means rush out to your local comic shop and pick up the first three releases because this franchise in general comes recommended.

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Jun 23, 2015

    Secret Six #3 is a strong, welcome return to the series and hopefully it can keep up its regular schedule because its been a pretty awesome book so far. Simone, Eaglesham and Wright work incredibly well together to give us a great character-centric look on the cast of the Secret Six, and that final panel reveal hints at plenty of great stuff to come in the future. More Secret Six can't come quickly enough. Read Full Review

    The art is beautiful, the plot is a twisty mess that keeps you guessing, the big reveals were stunning but made sense. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Jun 17, 2015

    For all its small tender moments, Secret Six #3 is an issue I can heartily recommend to fans old and new alike. Its the best chapter so far to introduce you to the newest players and their personalities, and frankly, barely needs #1 and #2 to be understood and absorbed. But for old school fans of the teams debut in Villains United, seeing the team of Simone and Eaglesham reunited is more than worth the price of admission. Plus, weird sex on the couch. How can you beat that? Read Full Review

    Things get weird in the suburbs, with a tantalizing reveal at the end and some nice high points on the journey. This one is weird, but enjoyable… Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 22, 2015

    Combine all that with a great double-twist at the end of the book, and my biggest complaint about Secret Six #3 is that we likely won't be staying in suburbia for too long. It's a shame, too, because it's a wonderfully goofy concept that lets Gail Simone flex her sense of humor without retreading old ground from her other iterations of this series. Still, this is a huge improvement from the previous two issues, and this is a status quo I hope continues for the long haul. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jun 19, 2015

    Secret Six makes its return from hibernation with an interesting choice of direction. Simone seems to be embracing the crazy with this team, and she waves the diversity flag with enthusiasm here. While I'm concerned that this won't resonate as strongly with a majority of readers, I thought it was a damn fine issue. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Grant Raycroft Jun 21, 2015

    Secret Six's launch has been awkward but this issue serves as a great introduction to the team and ends with a solid cliffhanger. It sells the Six as a cast with great chemistry and a good introduction for new fans. Dale Eaglesham brings a suitable look to this issue without going overboard. Solid entry all around.

    "Secret Six" #3 is an okay issue that is heavy on humor and features a great cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Jun 19, 2015

    I enjoyed seeing Catmans costume. I like it, the mask he wears mixes in well with this hair and makes it look like the mask is a part of his face. It was good to see the team fight together but I do want to know what Wellss deal is and how does the Riddler fit in. I was bothered with the pacing of this story but I was excited to see the last panel. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 22, 2015

    Sadly the issue does have its problems starting with the incredibly disappointing look at Catman in his new costume. The early scenes involving the bare-chested warrior (whose run in with the cop could have been toned down a bit) bring back the character Simone masterfully brought to the forefront of the DCU, but his new duds (making him look like a failed back-up dancer for a Michael Jackson tribute band) are the worst thing to happen to the character since Kevin Smith. For fans. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 20, 2015

    It's a pale imitation of the original, trying to use the same 'shocking' behavior of the first to win fans over without any of the in-depth character growth. We already know that everyone involved in this project can do way, way better. Read Full Review
