    Secret Six is a book that needs no further adulation, but will continue to get it. Read Full Review

    My one picky bit here, that's never explained: how does a New God, born on Apocalypse and eventually fleeing to Earth, end up in Hell? Are all the other New Gods down here somewhere? It's not a big deal, but it bothers me enough to wonder about, and be mildly disappointed that Gail never addressed it. Read Full Review

    No one ever escapes Hell unscathed. The Secret Six have been shown their souls and told they can never escape their fate. As well, they have been informed of the one inescapable truth about life: You can get what you want but still be disappointed. Secret Six is a gem of a book. Read Full Review

    Absolutely fantastic and an issue that showcases everything that makes this comic great. It also leads really well into the next arc. The possibility of King Shark and Ragdoll on the same team is enough to make me buy this book forever. Read Full Review

    IGN - May 4, 2011

    While I won't say that this is the best arc in this run of Secret Six, I will say that it does the best job of demonstrating the premise of the series. The team is stretched to their limits and presented an offer which they shouldn't turn down, but their stubborn loyalty to one another kicks in and has them fighting the never-ending multitude of Hell for what they believe in. If that isn't enough reason to pick up this book, then know that Simone's cliffhanger ending makes the Secret Six's struggle that much greater in this issue. Pick up this book... and then wait like the rest of us to see how Simone decides to (undoubtedly) break our hearts with the story in the next issue. Read Full Review

    When even the smaller moments stand out, like Liana's eyeliner running due to tears, or the glow underneath Lady Blaze's helmet as she delves out a nasty final piece of information to Scandal, you've got a strong and cohesive issue. That's exactly what I expect from Simone and Calafiore, and they deliver in spades. And with such a nasty final proclamation from Lady Blaze, well, I suspect everyone's going to be dying for the next issue (no pun intended). "Secret Six," month in and month out, continues to be excellent. Read Full Review
