So I Read Today… Secret Six #1 (mini-series)
Man, sometimes you just have to buy into the hype, even if it’s late for you. To anybody out there who reads me, you already know that I love anti-heroes. I love them dearly. It’s a comic stereotype that I don’t get tired of never. I specially dig when a mainstream super-hero goes rogue like the past two years of X-Force at Marvel, or the one who set the bar high for everyone: Wildstorm’s The Authority. Secret Six however had failed to catch my attention, mostly because I wasn’t paying attention.
Secret Six is Gail Simone’s baby, let’s get that out of the way, this team his handled beautifully by her mighty pen and I can’t imagine another writer doing the great job she has done with this team of misfits. The premise is simple: six rogue villains that refused to be a part of Luthor’s Secret Society form their own team for mercenary purposes, some of them noble, some of them dark as their souls. The team is consisted of characters you probably didn’t hear about until this series: Catman, Ragdoll, Deadshot, Knockout, Scandal Savage (daughter of Vandal Savage) and The Mad Hatter. These character makes magic happen as the most dysfunctional family could in these six issues.
I’m starting to read the ongoing series as I type this and so far I’m hooked, the fact they managed to get Bane as a team player is amazing and I look forward to get the dirt on how or why he decided to join the team, recently the tittle was canceled as part’s of DC’s new 52 revamp and I tell you that this is a damn shame, because very few books have what secret six delivers on every situation. It’s full of fun, is full of drama, it has a lot of action, this is one hell of a read and if you read comic books, you should reward your senses with this one!
