The supremely powerful and infinitely dangerous Black Alice returns and she's decided she wants to be a member of the Six even if someone has to die to make room!

    Great issue with lots of fun moments, from the team's bonding time in the strip club to Ragdoll's reactions to being called "all kinda hot" and just how every one reacted to the new team member's sudden appearance. I would have liked some more followup to Simone's last issue, where the Scandal was kicked off the team (she's still here, but not "active" as a Six member), but it's hard to complain when it's an issue as good as this one was.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 11, 2009

    It was a really close battle for the Top Spot in this week's Rankings and Secret Six nearly lost it because its art wasn't as strong as Booster Gold's. However the strength of the character work and the disturbingly awesome opening scenes of this issue carried it to #1. For those keeping track, Secret Six will end 2009 with a whopping EIGHT Read Full Review

    With regular penciller Nicola Scott off busy on Blackest Night-related matters, Peter Nguyen stops by to handle the issue's art, capturing the story's various tones wonderfully while providing some exciting action. If Scott for whatever unfortunate reason doesn't find her way back to this book, Nguyen could make for a suitable replacement - even if he'll be in the thankless position of taking over for a star.

    Despite the lack of Nicola Scott, this was my favourite issue of Secret Six in a while. Long live Black Alice! Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Dec 14, 2009

    Seems she's joining the team (at least for the short-term), which pisses off Scandal and turns Ragdoll on. After months of battling slavers and demons, Simone lightens things up considerably with a lovely tale of mentoring and promise. Sure, mostly of more carnage, but that's a promise! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 14, 2009

    The series gets a boost with this issue, by bringing together the comic book equivalent of chocolate and peanut butter in the form of "Secret Six" and Black Alice. The character promises another level of firepower, while Alice finally gets somewhere to appear on a regular basis. I haven't been the most avid follower of "Secret Six," but with Black Alice on board, I'll definitely be checking in a little more often. Read Full Review
