    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jul 2, 2009

    . It is simply ridiculous how good this title is monthinandmonthout. Once again Gail Simone and the talented duo of Nicola Scott and Doug Hazlewood (with help from Mark McKenna and Jason Wright) produce an amazing issue with loads of personality. It's sick, twisted, depraved, shocking, and ludicrously charming. This issue excels on all levels and was an easy pick for the week's best book. Do not miss out! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 4, 2009

    A good issue, filled with skewed moralities and twisted personalities, that miraculously even makes me like Artemis a little. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jul 1, 2009

    With Simone and Scott at the helm, Secret Six keeps getting better and better, to the point where it's now scary good. If you're reading this series, you're witnessing one of the greatest collaborations currently at work in comics. And if you're not, I don't know what you're waiting for. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Jul 7, 2009

    Secret Six is a book about a group of questionable characters who take up odd jobs for money. Lead by Deadshot the team consists of Bane, Ragdoll, Catman, Scandal Savage and a sixth character named Banshee, I think. (DC can definitely benefit from a recap page or at the very least character introductions for the unschooled such as myself.) Carrying over from last issue, which currently has gone unread, the team is working for a wealthy business man named Mr. Smyth. Smyth seems to live on an island where he is building a new society founded on the backs of criminals and slaves. Somehow he has enslaved a few Amazons including Artemis who has been bound and drugged. The real conflict of the issue centers around the six and the roles they must play. For a team who is supposed to depend on each other their moral ambiguity leads to dissention. Some members consider themselves professionals and once their word is given the job must be completed no matter how much their feelings may play into Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Jul 4, 2009

    Or maybe I just love how difficult it is for Ragdoll to make any sense at all of his surroundings, as his own moral judgments are as alien as they are consistent to a logic all his own. His position as ironic Greek chorus is always amusing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Jul 19, 2009

    The art does have a grim tone to it while still making the story clear and easy to follow. But it relies on too many close-in shots to convey emotion and the fight scene at the end is drawn in a way that makes it look static and dull-- almost as if it was just a backdrop for some more wisecracks and clever remarks. The cover is also rather unremarkable. It makes Artemis look like a chorus girl lost in a forest.. Read Full Review

    Yet another incredible issue in this ridiculously awesome title. Simone does an amazing job at mixing the most complex and dark stories with hints of superficiality and humour (read Batgirl for more of the same), and Nicola Scott's art is impeccable.
