This is the showdown you've been waiting for, as two Secret Six teams head for a nasty collision! Who is left standing, and will there even be a Secret Six when the dust settles? Bad guy guests galore in this explosive issue!

    The bad guys just have so much more fun! Seriously, this and Thunderbolts are two of the books I look forward to the most every month. There's a greater variety to the characters, their Read Full Review

    Truthfully, this is probably the worst Secret Six issue I've ever read. That being said, I can honestly say that the worst Secret Six book is still better than the vast majority of the comics you'll read in any given week. Does it deserve a higher ranking than #5? Probably, but I am docking points of for this issue not living up to its potential. That's nothing something I do for most books, but when you are the best comic being printed today, there are standards that must be maintained. Although, I do have to give credit to Gail Simone for giving Read Full Review

    Well, for me Secret Six is one of those comics that quietly provide entertaining stories month after month, all without huge stars or being saddled with the baggage of continuity or whatever big event is being planned for by the powers that be. Highly Recommended. Read Full Review

    IGN - Miguel Perez Sep 1, 2010

    Where this comic stumbles is the storytelling. It's as if Simone is more concerned with getting to the point where Bane rides atop a dinosaur than about telling a cohesive story. While it's true that exposition isn't always required, as evident by last month's fantastic old west tale, when a team goes from a yacht in the ocean to a giant bird's nest in Jurassic Park without any explanation, it wouldn't hurt to have at least a single panel to put it all in perspective. The entire issue is riddled with such instances, resulting in an awkward reading experience that had me laughing and scratching my head all at the same time. Read Full Review

    Not the strongest issue ever, but still an entertaining one. Both sets of Secret Six teams vs. dinosaurs (and possibly each other?) Yes please! Read Full Review

    There's always some of Simone's trademark wit on display here, and it's hard to not laugh at King Shark's movie title rallying cries going up against the flock of griffins. Likewise, Daniel Luvisi's cover showing the clash between Secret Six members as a character selection screen for a combat video game is an inspired choice. "Secret Six" #25 is a good issue, but as the first part of a new storyline I wish it had been a great issue instead, like the last few were. Still, I'll take a good "Secret Six" over most other comics any time, thank you very much. "Secret Six" is still one of the gems from DC Comics right now. Read Full Review
