Secret Six #3

This comic is really moving along nicely. Simone does a great job setting up the card as a plot device, and in a nice twist, it is totally worth the wait. We also get some nice use of classic villains who aren't part of the Secret Six with Cheetah and Bolt. I've been trying to figure out what I like about this comic, and I think it is the whole feel of the DCU. Back when I loved DC in the 90s, the DCU felt expansive and "classic." With so many DC titles killing off heroes and villains to establish new legacies, it's nice to read a book that utilizes old-time characters like Catman and Deadshot, but newer characters like Bane and Scandal get great screen time too.

Nicola Scott's artwork remains top notch. I have no complaints about clear storytelling and well-choreographed fight scenes.

I do worry about the fairly low sales for this book. Surely there is an audience out there for classic super-hero material?

Read the first issue and didn't need to read anymore. I loved the first mini series, but the second one just bored me like the first issue. Sorry, but maybe if it had more Martian Manhunter the sales would skyrocket-snicker.
