    This is a fun, twisted ride. I still prefer the earlier version of the book, but that's not coming back anytime soon, if ever. Read Full Review

    Piece by twisted piece, Secret Six is clicking into place. Gail Simone builds off the marked improvement of last issue, again exploring the weird, often joyously uncomfortable relationships of her six (sorry, Ferdie) leads. Read Full Review

    Secret Six gets stronger by the issue, even if you read them in the prescribed order of publication. For me, four issues is too many issues to wait for a series to find it's groove, but I have to admit: I trust the trajectory. The characters are finally starting to be interesting. The art is figuring out what it wants to be. The publishing schedule is evening out (knock wood). As long as the wait has been, I have to echo Lewis's The Last Battle (or perhaps your mom with the one of Six last night): Further up, and further in! Read Full Review

    This is the Secret Six I want to see. The characters are strong, their bonds are growing, and the bad guy is finally defined enough to actually matter. Plus Lashley has hopefully been kicked to the curb. His art was good when he actually got it done, but Secret Six will hopefully flourish with another, more confident and stable artist on board.

    Ragdoll's unique voice has certainly been missing in the comic. His addition works well here while Scandal, as enemy rather than one of the major driving forces behind the group, is a bit off-key. The latest issue opens with a buddy-buddy moment between Catman and the nondescript detective-ish guy (a character so forgettable neither I nor the Internet seem to remember who the hell he is) which only makes me miss Catman's best bud even more. Oh well, at least there's some fun to be had. For fans. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 18, 2015

    With this title's delays on top of delays, going and telling a prequel story that doesn't feel like it adds anything doesn't seem like it's helping the popularity of this series any.  At this point, this issue feels like it can be one that could be skipped and simply get the next issue when it gets back to the story we were waiting for........ which hopefully it does.  I still really like this series, but I found myself really disappointed with this issue.

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jul 16, 2015

    The politics behind the scenes of this book are digging a fast grave for Secret Six. I don't know any details, but it's evident, and DC needs to fix it if they plan on having an audience stick around. And shame on Jim Chadwick for letting this happen! After months of delays, there shouldn't be any issues that are this blatantly obvious. As hard as it is for me to say this, the creative team and DC need to get it together, or just cancel the book.

    It appears that concepts were thrown in without any sense of the story. The only saving grace was the fight at the end was fun but that was just about it. Read Full Review
