Not one, but two members of the Secret Six feel they deserve to wear Batman's cowl, and they return to Gotham City with a semi-delusional Ragdoll determined to be the new Boy Wonder! Unfortunately, everybody in Gotham has other plans!

    This one is the perfect place to start, as it is a stand-alone story that features everything that makes the book so enjoyable. The characterization, the humor, the ass-kicking: it’s all here. And beyond all that, it’s a really cool look at Batman’s impact and the ripple-effect that his death has caused, which I appreciated. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips May 13, 2009

    There's no other way to say it: if you're not reading Secret Six, you're likely as backwards and misguided as the book's main characters. This is one of, if not the, most entertaining superhero books on the stands. If you're strapped for cash and suspect your pull list is getting a little too bloated, go ahead and replace two of the five mediocre superhero titles you're buying with Secret Six. You won't regret it. Read Full Review

    The plot is fairly straightforward, but the trip is worth it. Spot on characterizations and easily one of my favourite comics this year. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Since Nicola Scott's back, I have no complaints, art-wise or otherwise. This is the perfect issue to show why Secret Six is my favorite running DC title. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill and Jason Cohen May 15, 2009

    The fact that we get two fill-ins in a row is a little disheartening, but this issue seems to be a solid stand-alone story as a little gift to the fans. It has everything you could ask for, action, comedy and Batman! You could skip this one and wait for the next story to start or you could pick this one up for some fun. Either way you dont really lose. Read Full Review
