Secret Six #9

Picking up from the preview we finally see the unholiness mentioned in the solicits.

Oh gods. I'd completely forgotten the warning so when I turned the page I just kind of sat there for a moment registering the image. Then I laughed.
It only gets better, of course.

Though it's not all fun and Robin!Ragdoll discovering what words can be made to sound perverse, this is the Battle for the Cowl issue after all. So there is some discussion of said 'cowl'.

And even a visit from one of the more appropriate contenders for it.

You just know you want to know how that goes and how they got there, yes? ;p

It would only qualify as "horrifying" if he wasn't wearing his usual costume under the Robin suit.

Good for a laugh, even as is.

Gail and Nicola's work on Secret Six is one of the few cases where a book actually succeeds in being dark and edgy. And the pervasive sense of black humor is one of the most critical reasons for that success.

P.S:
Boy, was I ever grateful to see that Nicola was back on the clock, instead of that fill-in artist from #8.
