Before I started writing this review, I did something I normally don’t do, I looked up some other reviews for this final issue of Secret Six, and to my surprise, the reviews I found all praised the book and said they’d be sad to see it go, and it truly was a heart-wrenching final issue.
Well, now for my thoughts:
I never want to read a comic written by Gail Simone ever again.
We start the issue with Bane and his girlfriend in bed, and Bane’s lady friend…

From the opening of the issue, it's clear the Amazons mean business. Diana strategizes in a small room. She's speaking to one of her generals, trying to figure out whether this war is simply dooming earth. Penthesilea, the general, reminds her that war with the Atlanteans is necessary after they killed their queen and destroyed Themyscira. It…

Long term readers will know that I have been incredibly harsh on this site when reviewing Secret Six. I felt that the dialogue was nothing more than gibberish, the art to be substandard and everyone involved in creating the book more interested in getting your $2.99 or £2.35 than writing something interesting and worthwhile. And then I read this issue.
Secret Six #35 details Bane’s plans to take down Batman and prove himself the best in the world, and break Batman, just like he did…

Another announcement from DC today reveals that one villain from The Batman Universe may be getting a complete overhaul in terms of appearance.
Harley Quinn! Deadshot! King Shark! They’re a team of death-row super villains recruited by the government to take on missions so dangerous – they’re sheer suicide! Who will be the first to crack under the pressure? Find out in SUICIDE SQUAD #1, written by Adam Glass (FLASHPOINT: LEGION OF DOOM) with art by Marco Rudy (THE SHIELD).

Editor's Note: Although we normally post up reviews for single issues, we are playing catch-up with Secret Six and with this multi-issue review we are caught up to what is currently out.
Secret Six #31-33 deals with the storyline involving the now infamous “Get out of hell free card” from the first storyline of the ongoing series. Things have changed a little for the title:
Nicola Scott has left the book and handed art duties over to J. Calafiore.
Daniel Luvisi has signed on to be…

I’m just going to lay this out before I review this issue of Secret Six. I hate crossovers. No, let me rephrase that, I hate crossovers between two books, and no matter how the creative teams try, the books do not sync up.
Somehow when two creators join to do a crossover, instead of co-plotting and dialoguing an issue, we get each creator “trying to take a stab” at the other persons interest, and does it work? Sometimes, the law of averages works in their…
