    Under normal circumstances, this book would have been the easy pick for Book of the Week (more on that in a moment), as the craftsmanship of this issue is of the highest quality. The writing duo of John Ostrander and Gail Simone put their best feet forward and we get the best of both writers as a result. Meanwhile, Jim Calafiore brings the goods with the art. There really isn't a reason that we don't see more big name projects out of Calafiore and this issue is a prime example of why. This is just an awesome, awesome comic. Read Full Review

    If this issue of Secret Six is little more than a traditional event tie-in book, it's at least one of the better ones we've seen so far, and an excellent opportunity for fans of both the Six and the Suicide Squad to see the antihero teams finally meet. Read Full Review

    The comic book was a very fun read. There are plenty of characters, tons of action and some awesome character writing. The pairing of combination of Simone and Ostrander produces some amazing results in this issue. This is definitely one to pick up. Read Full Review

    When I got to the end of this issue, I was actually startled. Everything moved so quickly and effortlessly that I actually lost track of how many pages I'd already read. That's a good sign. If Simone and Ostrander want to keep co-writing books down the line, I'd be on board. (Or for that matter, a new "Suicide Squad" series from Ostrander sure would be nice, DC. Hint hint.) This was just fun, pure and simple. Read Full Review
