High Expectations

Secret Six (Volume 3) #7
Written by Gail Simone
Art by Nicola Scott

The art is still fantastic this time around, but the conclusion of the first story arc didn’t seem as fantastic as it could have been. I suppose I had high expectations because the previous issues of this book have been just that good. I don’t believe Junior and the Tarantula are actually dead, Junior is too good of a villain to kill off that easily. As for what was going on with Bane and Scandal, I don’t know. What was going on in that memory Scandal was having? I have no clue. Mad Hatter was great in this. Now that the Secret Six are in Gotham I wonder if they will become involved in the Battle for the Cowl?

Craziness Continues

Secret Six (Volume 3) #4

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

Secret Six (Volume 3) #1

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!

Secret Six (Volume 3) #2

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.
