And DC’s craziest series gets even crazier in this issue as the villain Junior is revealed to be Ragdoll’s sister. I can’t believe I never thought of such a thing before as the villain did fit in a box! She is even scarier looking then Ragdoll. ss666.jpg

In the main story, learn more about Ragdoll’s sister and it turns out the one asking for the card is Mad Hatter who I am excited to see. He really doesn’t get enough appearances for a Batman villain. We also learn more of the perfectly disturbing backstory of Jeanette. Oh and Deadshot betrays the team. He was my least favorite member, so I really hope he is out for good. I like that despite they are working together, they really are still villains. In Origins and Omens backup story, we get some panels that could show the future of the team as well as an explanation of their origins by Mad Hatter who looks to have bad things in mind for their future. Awesome issue.

Craziness Continues

The craziness continues this issue as the Secret Six finally meet up with their sixth member in vegas. Jeanette is an interesting character in a series full of interesting characters. There are so many great moments in this issue I don’t even know where to start. If you are not picking up this series, run to the store and pick it up now! The art is great and the story is both shocking and hilarious. Simone is one of the best writers DC has right now. And yes they do actually ride in an ice cream turck this issue! The art is dark, and I love that about it. It fits the tone of the series perfectly with its dark humor. I love the line “What if?” that tarantula says because she is sooo right. Even if one doesn’t believe in hell or believe that the Get out of Hell Card works, there is always going to be the “What If” that is the back of these villains minds that makes them wanna grab it. We get more of the creepy villain, Junior, who murders a priest in a rather disturbing scene. This book is not for the squemish, that is for sure.

Secret Six 1 and 2

Simone kicks off this series with one of the most disturbing images; a man choosing his family’s death over his own. Then brings us to the Secret Six who are just as awesome and hilarious as ever. I love the talk about Catman going good and Deadshot making fun of it. I loved the inappropriate but meant well gesture of having the hooker dress as Knock-out. I can’t wait for the next issue! Check this out people. This is Gail at her best!

The highlight of this issue has to be the dialogue between Batman and Catman. Simone’s strengths as a writer who can write a serious story with great comic relief is shown here especially with Catman’s obsession with the smell of Mexican food. She utilizes some pretty obscure villains in that last page spread and Nicola Scott is an amazing artist who needs to be doing more books for DC.

Coming Full Circle

Outsiders (Volume 3) #50

Well here we come to the final issue of the Outsiders. It looks like Batman has taken complete control of the team now and the series will relaunch as Batman and the Outsiders, which I am very excited for. This issue was great. Much better then anything Winick ever did with this series. It doesn’t feel like a final issue, but it shouldn’t since the relaunch is just around the corner. I don’t know much abotu the Suicide Squad so there appearence here kinda threw me off but I did the research and now they interest me. I can’t wait to see what the new team does. I loved Catwoman’s final line in this issue, totally in-character. I also like the idea that Batman needs a team of heroes pretending to be villains. One thing I didn’t buy was the idea that people recognize Grace as an Amazon just by looking at her. Not realistic but whatever. Great end to a series and can’t wait for the relaunch.
