    Overall,Secret Six #8is a fun, action packed story which, is building steadily to an outrageous ending. In a taleinvolving this group of people, it is hard to predict how anything of this is going to end. And, that makes each story an exiting prospect worth reading. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ron Watson Nov 23, 2015

    The entire creative team is tackling quite a task here, mixing the magical side of DC Comics with the superhero side. Early in the New 52, this was attempted quite often and usually these attempts were met with less than stellar results. So far, Simone and the art team are doing quite well. While this arc still has a long ways to go, the early chapters have properly put the wheels of in motion for an intriguing finish. The art is top-notch as is the dialogue, snarky as ever, and the plot from Simone. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Nov 24, 2015

    Secret Six #8 blends magic, horror and comedy, andEaglesham, with Tom Derenick, carries much of that weight. The art and character designs express much of the team's personalities. Etrigans costumes are a riot. Derenick's fill in pages are not easily distinguished from Eaglesham, keeping the issue consistent. Jason Wrights colour art make every line clean and clear on the page. Secret Six #8 is instantly memorable because of the personality create by the combination of art and script. Read Full Review

    Simone is finally delivering on what we all hoped this book would be! There's still room for improvement, but so far this arc of Secret Six is leaps and bounds better than the first arc. Read Full Review

    I am going to give this issue a good rating but I'm going to hold back a bit because I suspect future issues are going to need some room to grow. Secret Six is turning into one of my favorite books published now and I look forward to the future. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 18, 2015

    I rated last issuestrongly but tentatively, in hopes that this book would pull out of thetailspin that was its first arc. I'm pleased to say that Secret Six has done just that and it is all of the madcap, fartjoke fun that we all hoped it would be. If you think Catman's butt could rivalGrayson's, if you like when Etrigan's character is written in correctly rhymingpatterns, if you think a deathless, mute, reformed assassin could be the mosttouching character in comics right now, then you should do yourself a favor andcheck this out. Worst thing that could happen is Big Shot teaching you someawesome new epithets. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Thomas Crawford Nov 23, 2015

    This series continues to pickup steam with a second arc that's taking readers off the beaten path for these characters. It's very exciting to genuinely not know where this story is heading, and it's clear Simone and co. are just getting warmedup. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 4, 2015

    There's plenty of action, bad decision making, and questionable choices that make-up a good Secret Six comic (even if we're still missing Deadshot and Catman seems stuck in that awful, awful New 52 costume). It appears that, thanks to the “help” of our anti-heroes things are going to get worse for the world before they get better. Worth a look. Read Full Review
