What is the Secret? Actually, theres more than oneand the answers are revealed here. The true identity of Mockingbird was only one of the secrets, and its not even the most shocking. Plus: A marriage that should not happen is proposed. A person you thought was long gone returns. And at least one of the Six is not the person you think they are. (Okay, its the dummy.) From this point on, all bets are off.

    This whole run has been very well written and has made of these not so well know characters not only likeable but interesting too. The art is fantastic and the pacing is perfect. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, this low-key book won't redefine comics, but Gail Simone's voice makes this stand above the rank and file. Read Full Review

    Secret Six #6 represents the end of an arc and a sturdy turning point for our primary cast of characters. Right now I can easily say that this was a quality entry that stumbled a bit but never lost its fun atmosphere along the way. In my mind this yarn turnedinto a good finish while setting up a sturdy jump-on point next month, as I closed it and felt largely pleased with what I read. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Sep 21, 2015

    The issue ends on a cliffhanger, and because of the tone of the book, it feels more dramatic than it probably, in reality, is. But again, the book's tone is so specific and unique, that maybe we really are in for a dramatic event next issue. This book, with one foot in the Bat-verse, one foot in the 'Dark' line, and with its ass clearly in the classic 'bwahaha' Bronze Age DC, is a real under-appreciated treat right now. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Tajaye Williams Sep 17, 2015

    The lines and shading take me back to a more classic DC Universe and the faces here are as expressive as ever especially on the books final pages. Every character has their own unique style and personality and Derenick captures their individuality perfectly. No, this isn't the perfect first arc, but I have no doubts that Gail Simone is slowly but surely laying the groundwork down for another legendary run by comic fans most beloved group of antihero misfits. This is slowly ramping up to be one of DC's premiere books and is definitely worth the asking price. Read Full Review

    Secret Six is a mess, and while I think there's still potential here, the creative team needs to hurry up and move past this arc to refocus and regroup. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Sep 27, 2015

    I'm not sure if the Secret Six book is something I want to keep following. From issue one until now the art has changed with almost every consecutive issue, characters I've known before are quite different, and some creative difficulties at the start made this book stumble out of the gate. At the same time, Simone has a great handle on the team's characters which is always one of her top strengths. I'd recommend anyone wanting to jump on board with this title to pass on this issue and see where she takes this series with the next arc. I'll wait for that arc to finish before deciding on whether or not I'll be back. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Sep 18, 2015

    I am becoming more and more intrigued with the Black Alice character. Here is the first time she says that she borrows the powers of others and I am interested in seeing what caused her to lose consciousness and stop breathing after identifying the Spectre. How will the Spectre factor in this story? Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 19, 2015

    Gail Simone really flubbed the launch of the new Secret Six. The art has been all over the place, and her opening storyline is embarrassing. But there are hints of the joy from the first volume, and I hope she focuses on that going forward. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Ten Van Winkle Sep 19, 2015

    The first Secret Six story ends rocky with this issue, centered around a villainous genius prankster with no bite and no punchline. The saving grace and only real point of connection, for my money, is poor Mr. Dibny and his lost wife and at-risk surrogate daughter. Starting next month with issue #7 really seems too late to make me feel sympathy for the other characters in this book, but if anyone else can hook your heart nearly as fiercely as Dibny can, then this story might look up for me. Maybe a new setting, a new problem, a new villain will benefit these character when the next storyline rolls around. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 12, 2015

    Very well-drawn and well-plotted comic book about a bunch of characters that do weird things for strange reasons. Some of the characterization is really enjoyable, particularly in Catman and Strix, but too many of the characters seem like throwaways or placeholders for punching bags. The wedding teased on the cover is barely an afterthought in this issue, it comes across as just another of the bizarre scenarios that play out through the story. And it all takes place at the same location"this may actually be a tour de force of Hitchcockian proportions! Read Full Review

    As with the last run, the Secret Six is delightful twisted. I'm looking forward to seeing where Gail takes the team of misfits. Read Full Review
