Love it or hate it (I sadly lean toward the latter of the two), Gail Simone's impact on post-2000s DC is immeasurable. It was she who made the Birds of Prey soar out from under the shadow of the Bat; she who finally gave Bane some manner of dignity and characterization to lift him out of his post-Knightfall slump; and she who took several villains that no one remembered anymore, assembled them all under the name of an equally forgotten team, and made both awesome beyond imagination.

All told, there are probably a hundred other accomplishments to her name, but there is one that remains of particular interest to me: what is arguably the most badass Mad Hatter appearance in the history of DC.

(Okay, so there's not really much competition, but still.)

It's a moment that's been talked about quite a few times on S_D, but I find it sadly unposted (perhaps a victim of the Great Purge?). So I present it here, in all its creepy glory.

Ok, it's the pink elephant in the room.

Let's talk about it.

The book closes out in style.

The team that never backs down.... and never wins.

We are the Secret Six. )

Newsarama has the preview of the final Secret Six (EVER) issue.

(looks around to see if anyone posted this yet).

Dammit, I am going to MISS this.

Let this ONE preview page remind you of what you are missing. What will be GONE.
NEVER MORE.

I need an Irish funeral for this. *off to the bar*

ComicBookResources brings us to the arc where Bane begins to slip into true villainy once more.

But before that begins, some loose ends to wrap up. 2 preview pages behind the cut.

Knock knock. )

Hi ho, 2 pages from Secret Six #33 here. You'll recall that when a preview page was posted showing Catman's reunion with his d-bag of a father in Hell, Papa Blake begged Tom to save him from a mysterious "she" who comes to torture him afresh every day. Betting on who the "she" is was pretty evenly split between Mama Blake and the lioness Papa Blake killed.

Well... )

In other news, I continue to desire a Catman plushie doll. :D

Really? Nobody's posted anything substantial from Birds of Prey 11 yet? Just the bits and pieces of continuity dovetailing with Batgirl?

Well. Let's fix that, shall we? 3 pages of Huntress and Catman doing some dovetailing of their own.

The setup: Huntress is chasing jewel thieves ("Of course there was a jewel heist. It's Gotham. And it's Thursday." ILU, Gail) who've shot a guard and taken a hostage - a severely asthmatic hostage with no inhaler who's a prime candidate for death by misadventure. She's slugging it out with one thug when Catman shows up, looking to revisit that, umm, whatever they had back in Birds of Prey v1 #106-107, I think? Hel maintains she's busy, so Catman agrees to help her hunt.

They find the second thug, and Catman loses points for hitting Rickie's pregnant girlfriend (in fairness, she was leaping at him claws-out at the time), but gains points for getting wounded while taking Rickie down and eliciting the name of a third thug; the fourth crew member, the client, none of them knew.

Which leads to this exchange )

Thoughts?

Whoa. Talk about major shifts for characters. There are SO many things revealed about our merry band of renegades, that I do not know where to start.

Well, that's not true. I will begin with the the last page... the conundrum that started it all.

Mods, keep the tags as they are so that no surprises are spoiled.

SPOILER AHEAD!

The supply of fresh troops and ammunition is almost up, and soon only the strong shall stand against one another. Where will the Six stand?

War. Fair. )
