The Buzz: Basically, Gail Simone tweeted that Secret Six was coming back, and let slip that Catman was in the new team, and that was ALL WE NEEDED. Her previous run of Secret Six are the kind of comics you thrust into the hands of friends on the condition that they read them fast and get them back to you because the trades are always half out of print, damn them all. Dark, funny and occasionally kinda filthy. So the promise of more of the same made the New 52 look a whole lot more interesting.
All You Need To Know: Secret Six happens when a bunch of amoral super-types, nutcases and criminals get together. I’m not even sure from this issue if they’re doing a Birds of Prey on us and pretending that the pre-New 52 Secret Six issues never happened, but I choose to believe they totally did happen. Still, you don’t need to know much except that Catman is the best and the worst, always.
