    There's basically two storylines here. The first, which gives this collection its title, is set in Skartarsis. Basically DC's version of the Savage Land. Or, to be slightly more fair, DC's version of The Lost World. So you have dinosaurs and primitive tribes with great hair (by comic book standards) in wildly unsupportive clothing. And rather silly setting aside, it's actually a pretty decent story. Who'd have thought? The second story trades on the tension between Scandal Savage and her father, [...]

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies)I hate it when teammates fight. This is one of the reasons that I was lukewarm on “Captain America: Civil War”, and had a hard time watching parts of “Batman Vs Superman”. I just want my favorite characters who are friends to remain friends and not hate each other. So when we got to this story arc of The Secret Six, I knew that I was going to a rough spot for me as a reader. Bane and Jeanette have their own team now, which would be fine if Scandal [...]

    It's Friday afternoon, and you get a call from a friend (or a text, or a tweet, or whatever the kids do these days). You're invited to a party, and since you really like this friend, you agree to go. When you get there, though, you hate all of your friend's friends, and they insist on playing Dungeons and Dragons while you sit in a corner and hate life. As someone who likes the Secret Six characters, this collection of stories was like that hypothetical bad party for me.The first four issues of [...]

    While I was worried about the Secret Six being broken up in this edition, I'm happy to say that 1) they aren't totally horrible to each other, and 2) things get resolved one way or another pretty quickly. Catman is still reeling from losing his son, so he is kind of out of it, but everyone else is fairly put together and with it. I thought that the big war they found themselves in was kind of silly, but at the same time I'm happy that it addressed the ideas of colonialism and imperialism, of all [...]

    It appears publisher DC is already making the move towards their trade collections resembling short story collections. That is not necessarily a bad thing. The stronger story here is the first, and longer, one where our favorite anti-heroes are sent by opposing U.S. intelligence agencies to an alternate dimension. One group is to conquer it for the government, and the other is to stop them. Gail Simone's characterization and pacing is dead on during this tale. This story also serves as reminder [...]

    Secret Six is at its best when it's allowed to stand on its own. Unfortunately, this collection includes several crossovers. The main story focuses on a completely random battle between the team's factions in Skartaris. While allowing for the addition of some interesting extra characters, the fantastical setting is hardly used, other than being a stage for a random demon, all the while counterpointed with espionage games between Amanda Waller and Atom Smasher. None of which adds much to the char [...]

    Again, something of a mixed bag. The 4-issue "Reptile Brain" story is pretty good, with one version of the Six facing off against another. But that's marred somewhat by the 2 issues devoted to a Lex Luthor vs. Vandal Savage storyline that comes out of nowhere and doesn't really connect with what happened before. It's kind of unfortunate, as there's a lot of promise in the Secret Six, but that promise is continually undercut by the changes in artist and the strange, non-linear approach to storyte [...]

    “The Reptile Brain” itself is a great, thanks to terrific continuity in Skartaris and great characters in not one but two teams [8/10]. The Luthor crossover that follows isn’t as good, primarily because it’s so mired in Action Comics continuity as to be only semi-comprehensible. Still, unlike Ostrander, Cornell knows how to write the Secret Six right. [6.5/10].

    Though I failed to see the purpose of the whole Conan thing, this book had superb character interaction. Plus, there was that whole thing with Dwarfstar and Giganta.And I finally, finally, understand the purpose of Amanda Waller, as well as deeply love her character. I leave you with this: "Don't EVER *% with the Wall." *chills*

    Two Secret Six teams clash in Skartaris, which sound zany, but who cares because the tales of these psychotics and villains are interesting regardless of the setting. Plus, y'know, grand violence. Throw in further on some Lex Luthor and Vandal Savage, it's all even better.A truly fun (and more-than-occasionally creepy) set of tales.

    There are seven members of the Secret Six and this point and I'm not even mad. I love these characters. The DC version of the Lost World is here. It's a fun read and there's a cover of Bane riding a dinosaur. As one other reviewer here pointed out: why in the world is that not the cover of the trade?!Then the Six get hired by Luthor to fight Vandal Savage. Yay family issues!

    The Secret Six finds itself at war - amidst itself and in the hidden world of Skartaris. As the team works to not only uncover the reason behind the mission, they must also come to a consensus on their Six-man roster. Once done, the Six go for a little payback against Lex Luthor and Vandal Savage, in order to settle old scores.

    A little confusing and not too cohesive. The two story lines feel out of the blue and one of them is apparently a crossover. This group is always entertaining though and that continues. Also I'm a fan of Scandal Savage and this book gives her a bunch of story time.

    King Shark and Ragdoll! So good that I missed the Embarcadero station and didn't realize it until Balboa Park. And if that means anything, this hadn't happened since missing Rockridge reading about Feigenbaum constants in Doom Patrol, but that reverie cast a spell only as long as Orinda.

    This is a funny read where they fight in a lost world type area and i would say that some of the best lines in comics come from this series. The other part you really see in this vol is the Savage family love going on and how it affects everything.

    Much like the previous volume of Secret six this one is a step back from the first two. It just feels more forced. It's still better than a majority of superhero comics because it's a fun cast of characters, but it lacks the excitement of the first volumes.

    I never want Gail Simone to leave this title. It would be nice to have Jim Calafiore illustrating it forever too. *sigh* A must-buy series with humor, drama, action and well-written characters. Who knew you could come to love a bunch of seriously twisted murderers?

    Only Gail Simone can take a story as dark and depressing as this one, and still make it great to read.

    I love Secret Six, but I wish it had been allowed to stand on its own more. So many crossovers in this one that it makes my head spin.

    Some short stories. The Secret Six team are divided and have to fight each other. There's some nice moments but a lot more action than normal for this series. A good read but slightly disappointing.

    I love vengeance stories. That is the main reason this collections gets 3 stars. The other stories were not as interesting.

    Terrible. How this gets such a high rating by most readers is beyond me. Cool characters but Gail Simone seems incapable of doing anything interesting with them.
