Friday Favorite: Jeannette

Our darling Gail has a knack for creating new characters. Misfit, Black Alice, Ragdoll, Scandal! All of them awesome in their own right. But no one quite takes the cake like Jeannette. She was a bit of a mystery when she first joined the Six. We knew she had money, we knew she was friends... Continue Reading →

G3 Review: Secret Six #22

Secret Six #22 Writer: Gail Simone Artist: J. Calafiore DC Comics Released: June 9, 2010 The comics that I deem "good" are the ones that really tug my emotions or shock the shit out of me. The final installment of the Secret Six "Cats in the Cradle" story arc was a full on jaw-dropper, kids.... Continue Reading →

Comic Judgment: The Hit Parade

Maybe I was feeling a tad sensitive last week, but there were several comic book moments that left me all verklempt. It was also one of those rare weeks when my pull list produced nothing but hits, with two (Batman and Robin and Secret Six) in a dead heat for first place. There will be spoilers. Batman and...

Gail Was Robbed!

Secret Six #20 played out like a well-acted revenge thriller. Catman reminded me of Liam Neeson in Taken. Those baddies effed with the wrong guy! Still, I wish Cheshire had come along to help with the revenge portion of the show. Maybe Gail will bring her around later. Let's hope. On the whole, this issue... Continue Reading →

Secret Six Casting Call

With all due respect to Green Lantern and Batman, the live-action superhero movie DC/Warner Brothers ought to be making isn’t really about heroes at all. Two words: Secret. Six. Aside from being one of the most consistently good mainstream comics around, the current incarnation of Secret Six is a carnival ride of moral ambiguity; wildly... Continue Reading →

Batman and Robin #10 During its short run, this title has ranged from brilliant to odd to plain inscrutable — in other words, classic Grant Morrison. Fortunately, things are back on the upswing with Andy Clarke's wonderful... Continue Reading →

Amanda Waller Will Cut a Bitch

I used to be a huge "Smallville" fan, but over the years, my appreciation of the show has ebbed and flowed. I enjoyed season 8 quite a bit, as the writers finally decided to weave in more DC continuity. Besides, Tom Welling is always easy on the eyes. Not that I could have ignored all...

G3 Flashback: Bootylicious!

An occasional look at our favorite panels from comics past.   I can't say enough about artist Nicola Scott, who has generated some gorgeous panels during her Secret Six run. But she outdid herself in issue #9 with a cameo appearance from a certain member of the Bat family. This "Battle for the Cowl" tie-in... Continue Reading →

Secret Six #16 Writer: Gail Simone Penciller: Peter Nguyen Inkers: Doug Hazelwood & Mark McKenna DC Comics December 9, 2009 The Story *Spoiler Alert* We've all watched movies with serial killers where you wished nothing more than for Justice to assail them squarely in the nuts.  Well, our favorite amoral anti-heroes of Secret Six do...
