    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 10, 2009

    This is a good book, and this issue is a good example of why. The father/daughter dynamic between Bane (who may or may not have had a family) and Scandal (whose father wanted to kill her and use her organs for spare parts) is beautiful, and the subtlety of the relationship between Deadshot and Jeannette simply SHOULD NOT work... and yet it does. Nicola Scott provides beautiful art, and Gail Simone provides a real look at the devastatingly damaged humans behind these "supervillains," and the whole thing is charming as hell. With a perfect balance of personalities, the Secret Six themselves are fascinating, and this new job seems to be more brutal and disgusting than any before, which should lead to interesting character developments for the "team." Last issue's "superheroics" were laugh-out-loud funny, this issue has moments that are sweet and touching, and yet the characters maintain their dark and gritty stance in a world that's all shades of grey. Secret Six #10 is an i Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jun 4, 2009

    In the end, its another extremely impressive issue for Secret Six that made a strong run for the #1 spot. Unfortunately, some awkward dialogue (mostly with the benefactors) and minor issues with the coloring were just enough to keep it from being Book of the Week. Still, as it stands its a great issue and one that you definitely should not miss. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jun 3, 2009

    With the question of human slavery playing such a central role in the book, this arc promises to be significantly darker and more serious than past Secret Six stories. That's not at all a bad thing. Simone has proven she can find humor in any situation, but more importantly, this plot promises to shine a spotlight on the complex morality of this team. It's been proven time and again that these characters don't share the same conceptions of right and wrong, and "Depths" looks like it will widen those moral rifts in a fascinating way. And let's face it - if you're enjoying this series as much as I am, you're also probably convinced that Simone and Scott can do no wrong with this team. Read Full Review

    Besides the weak ending, this was a pretty good comic, one I'd have no problem recommending. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Jun 5, 2009

    And maybe most telling of all, when the team is literally dropped into a nest of gun-toting guerillas, their effectively simultaneous leap into action (if hemmed and hawed by a lot of nervous verbiage) is the truest sign of all: for all their sins, this group has formed a formidable collaboration. And their clients better watch their backs. Read Full Review
