    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 15, 2009

    There were a few extremely minor issues with the writing and the art, but allinall this is yet another simply amazing issue of Secret Six, which remains one of the top two or three ongoing books being put out right now. In most weeks, this issue could easily have taken the Top Spot, so don't let the #3 Ranking fool youit has a lot more to do with the #1 and #2 books being exceptionally awesome than it does with any problems this issue had.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 21, 2009

    This issue is the darkest and most disturbing comic in a while, featuring bad decisions all around, as well as some deep character work on the likes of Bane, Jeannette and Scandal, and Gail reveling in how far the characters can sink. It's a thoroughly unpleasant story with thoroughly unpleasant people, but it still manages to keep me riveted to the events. Bane's removal of Scandal from active duty is a shocking moment, she being a core member of this team from it's inception, but the fact that her teammates seemingly supported this decision leaves Scandal gobsmacked. None of these characters will ever be mistaken for superheroes, surely, but it's a little shocking to see them all in brutal action. Nicola Scott's art is always wonderful, but here she manages to create a tone of dread and foreboding, a darkness that I don't recall seeing in her work before, but one that I enjoy. This is a very good climax for an interesting and thought-provoking arc, and a very successful issues overal Read Full Review

    It's certainly time that the Six departed from this story, but if nothing else it has provided fans with some excellent pieces of character development. And so-so story arc aside, Secret Six is still the book I fell in love with and it's still got a strong core built on the strength of its cast and talent creative team. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 19, 2009

    I think the Amazon storyline, the private-prison angle and the Grendel subplot all could have supported storylines on their own, and incorporating all of them into the same story might have been something of a misstep. Nevertheless, this arc did more things right than wrong, and I remain a fan of the series Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chris Kiser Oct 19, 2009

    It would be easy to write a series about criminals without a moral center, but it wouldnt be easy to read one. In this issue, Gail Simone shows us once again that in order to connect to an audience, even Deadshot needs a conscience. Read Full Review
