The confrontation you never thought would happen is here! It's Bane vs. Scandal in a time-lost world, as the two Secret Six teams find themselves on opposite sides of a vicious war that could destroy Skartaris!

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 7, 2010

    The fun in reading this book isnt usually the big plots (though those are awesome as well) but in the ways the characters work so hard to try and avoid changing or admitting their true natures as they do so. Gail Simones twisted team is always entertaining, and this issue is no exception. Secret Six #27 earns a well-deserved 4.5 out of 5 stars overall, even with the horrifying sight of Rag Doll in his Superman underoos. Read Full Review

    Secret Six hasn't wavered once since it began and everything just seems to get better and better each month. I can't recommend this title more. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Nov 4, 2010

    This storyline is still a bit weaker than the usual Secret Six fair, with awkward pacing being the only major issue. Despite this, it's still a great read with strong character work and some great art. Plus, Amanda Waller's scene is so awesome that it is worth the cover price alone. Seriously, it's incredibly badass. Read Full Review

    These latest two arcs of Secret Six have been firing on all cylinders, proving time and again why the title is clearly one of the best DC has to offer. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 8, 2010

    I'm sure a comic reader or two picked this book up based solely on the cover image: Bane, reining in a Tyrannosaurus Rex as though it were a common steed. It is an impressive image to say the least, and an image that speaks to the creative, impossible greatness that comic books are able to offer. The image is true to the tale beneath, but it doesn't telegraph the entirety of the story within. This is a book that can only be experienced, as it defies description. Trust me on this one; give "Secret Six" a shot. You'll see for yourself this book is unlike anything else you've read in a long time. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Wayland Nov 3, 2010

    I still am not wholly clear on the need for this Spysmasher vs Waller sub plot. It appears that the attack in Skartaris is either part of it or just a distraction, I'm still not wholly clear which. I had also thought that Black Alice just couldn't bridge the divide back to Earth to steal powers, but she apparently can't dupe either Giganta or Jeanette, who are both here and she's done before. Overall it was a very good issue, as I've come to expect from Gail. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Nov 3, 2010

    My enthusiasm for this book isn't diminished at all. It still continues to be one of my favorite books coming out of DC. Perhaps I'm just frustrated to see these characters I'm rooting for get thwarted by jungle people and dinosaurs; and, if that's the case, it's probably actually a compliment that I'm so invested in the drama that I'm upset when the cast runs into difficulties.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 6, 2010

    By the end of issue #27 we're still left with two separate squads and only one issue left to conclude this fun, but bizarre, story arc. It's not the best issue of Secret Six, but it's a hellova lot of fun. And, did I mention it has Catman riding a giant freakin' cat and mauling an entire army. Yeah, that's pretty cool.

    This is by far my least favourite arc of the title, yet I find myself enjoying most of it. Bane riding a dinosaur and Blake riding a giant cat are definitely a plus. I just find the pacing a little bit off.
