I don't really know anything about Secret Six, but I've heard it's a really unique series, which is what I look for/love about DC, so chances are I will like it.

Secret Six is probably Simone's best work and it's one of my favorite superhero comics runs, so seeing her back writing the team makes me super happy. I'm betting she's not going to be able to use Deadshot since he's in Suicide Squad, which kind of bums me out, but there's still Catman, so I'm on board.

I've been a fan of the team since their inception in Villains United. I'm nervous about the changes being made to Catman and about this volume living up to the high water mark left by the last series. Regardless I'm super excited to have this book coming back after a 3 year absence. Hurry up December.

Is Suicide Squad getting canceled? I think he belongs there more and don't want him in Secret Six if Suicide Squad is still around.

@dernman: By him, I assume you mean Deadshot? I think he's sticking with Suicide Squad and it's not getting cancelled and replaced by Secret Six. I'd rather have Floyd on the Secret Six because I dont read Suicide Squad and I'd like to see his friendship with Thomas Blake re-established.

Gail Simone needs to do something new for a change.

oops Yes I meant Deadshot. I believe I edited that out by mistake. I was hoping for something new from Secret Six to be honest which is why I was disappointed when I heard Catman name pop up. Not that it was bad before I was just hoping for something else. At least the premise sounds a bit different. Hopefully it will stay that way. No matter what I just hope this is one of the few times I like Simone's work.

@dernman: What were you hoping this iteration of Secret Six would be?

Going to miss the Deadshot and Catman bromance. Also Jeanette needs her new 52 appearance. One of my favorite fights ever was between her and WW.

@longbowhunter: Nothing in particular exactly. Just wanted something a bit different than a group of smaller semi to strait up villains doing their thing. I read a few books like that and like more than a couple teams like that.

@darkrider: That happened back during Blackest Night. It was pretty awesome.

@longbowhunter: the Battle for Cowl one shot with Catman and Bane both secretly wanting to take over the mantle was great as well. Gail did a good job with the event issues.

Secret Six is the DC book I am most looking forward to. Only recently started reading it on ComixOlogy and o man it's fantastic. It's the kind of fringe mainstream comics that I love.

@arzix: Batman's mantle. Catman and Bane both respect Batman and his role in Gotham. Ragdoll makes fun of both of them for secretly wanting to take over for batman during Battle for the Cowl.

@lawton1of6: Thanks so is the book battle of the cowl?

Secret Six #9. It's a tie-in one shot issue to the Battle of the Cowl event. The event was about who would take over for Bruce as batman after he was thought dead by everyone. The issue stands alone pretty well because it's more about Bane and Catman as characters.
