    Anyways, we still don't know what happiness Savage will get which leads me to think that his role in this Luthor arc isn't over yet. And it was nice to see the Six, in the end, stand up to two of the heaviest villain hitters in the DCU and hold their own. Marco Marz art is nice here, ranging from crazy action sequences to quieter moments of introspection. Read Full Review

    This shouldnt be the last time these titles meet again, at least not the last time these writers do. Their penchant for writing clever personalities is so apparent I wouldnt mind seeing the two sharing co-writing duties during a big Lex event. Does a Birds of Prey/Secret Six crossover seem a little more obvious? Regardless, with all these villains on Lexs bucket list being shot down by his wits month after month, something bad (or orange) is bound to brewand trade-waiting Secret Six is not one of them.

    Oh, and fans of the Secret Six's resident knife-using tracker should check out next month's Red Robin, when Cat-Man shows up. Read Full Review

    Marcos Marz fills in for Jim Calafiore on art this month, and that's where the real flaws set in. On the plus side, Marz's lines have a refined quality not unlike Andy Clarke's work. On the minus side, Marz's figures are generally flat and lifeless even in the midst of action scenes. Consistency is also a problem. Vandal Savage rarely looks exactly the same in any two panels. Hopefully readers can look forward to Calafiore's swift return as Secret Six ventures back into its own territory again. Read Full Review

    Still, despite the faults in the art, "Secret Six" #29 is a satisfying conclusion to the crossover with "Action Comics," and if down the line Simone and Cornell want to do another crossover? I'm definitely down with that. Read Full Review

    A strong–though definitely not the strongest–issue. Watching Luthor and the Six play off each other is a lot of fun, and forcing the Six to solve a problem primarily through negotiation, rather than violence, is a nice change of pace. Also: Ragdoll is awesome. Best. Plot exposition. EVER. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 19, 2011

    This issue isnt the most flashy or impressive of the title, but it makes its case clearly and gives you everything you need to get a foot in the door. Secret Six #29 earns a solid 3.5 out of 5 stars overall, doing its thing well and without fanfare Read Full Review
