Swiftly moving past the cruddy title - Six Degrees of Devastation, which sounds like an emo high school band’s . Secret Six – all of the comics I’ve read of it – has been so disappointing and bad that I don’t even rate Simone as a decent writer anymore.

Swiftly moving past the cruddy title - Six Degrees of Devastation, which sounds like an emo high school band’s name - I was hoping this book was going to reveal to me the brilliance of fan favourite Gail Simone’s Secret Six series that I’d missed with the last Six book (Cats in the Cradle) and the first issue of the New 52. re-launch that I’d read. I don’t know why she’s a fan favourite writer, I don’t know why this title is considered good in the slightest, all I know is it isn’t for me.

book you will soon pick up: Secret Six: Six Degrees of Devastation Gail Simone and team have created a fantastic reinvention of the Secret Six with completely new takes on old characters.

Come with me for a brief chat about another book you will soon pick up: Secret Six: Six Degrees of Devastation. This volume collects the 6 issue limited series that was released from 2006-2007 before the birth of the ongoing series in September 2009. Gail Simone and team have created a fantastic reinvention of the Secret Six with completely new takes on old characters.

  • I have been picking up the monthly 'Secret Six' books and wanted to see where it all began so I grabbed this trade. I liked it...but I can see Gail's writing is more powerful in the newer books. Her character dynamics are amazing....I could care less about the action as long as the team is talking to each other!

    Get this book just to see how 'mad' the Mad Hatter really is. Crazy!

    Great intro into an amazing group of villains.

  • Did you ever read Secret Society of Super Villians? Or Suicide Squad? Or Serpent Society (guest story line in 1980's Capt America?

    If you enjoyed those comics, but thought they could be better then this comic is for you. It is everything those comics were and more. I'm just sorry there aren't more Secret Six graphic novels available.

  • Apart from being an awesome story, this book arrived exactly as described and in the time frame that I expected.

  • An unknown mastermind has coordinated attacks against members of the Secret Six. Is it the ruthless Cheshire, or the vicious Dr. Psycho? As introduced in "Villains United" the Six are a band of dangerous criminals who refused to knuckle under to Lex Luthor's Secret Society. But just because they're fighting against the bad guys doesn't make them good. Or does it? Just how morally irredeemable are they? They range from Catman who almost sees himself as one of the good guys (he isn't) to Deadshot, who sees himself as a soulless mercenary (he isn't) to the totally twisted Ragdoll, who often doesn't seem to even understand what's going on (but he does - usually). The main conflict is between the immortal caveman Vandal Savage (his name says it all) and his daughter Scandal, but the many treacheries make this story far more entertaining than standard super-hero fare. Maybe not as funny as some others from this franchise. Walker's art is decent, but not as good as that in "United", and certainly not as good as the Nicola Scott art we've become used to in the current "Secret Six" title.

  • In this collection, the Secret Six try to recover from the betrayals and losses they suffered during the Villains United story. They also pick up a new teammate here and there, and Simone makes it all work. I loathe the character of the Mad Hatter, but she makes me sympathize with him, especially by having him pick on someone his own size during a battle with Dr. Psycho. This collection also explores some of the hilariously unapologetic moral depravity of Ragdoll, who has become my favorite DC character. There is something of a plot holding this collection together, but it involves the ridiculously-named and poorly-realized Vandal Savage, so I choose to ignore that as much as possible when thinking about the book. The appeal here is in the characters, who have fascinating motivations and quirks and absolutely no interest in being heroes. It's kind of a refreshing and funny darkness that makes the book well worth a read.

  • This is a good book, really. What happens when six villans live in a house, and have to start being real? Well, lots of people get shot/stabbed, for one.

    After the events of the various Crises in the DC Universe, several villans team-up mostly for personal gain, but also to avoid other villans who were none too happy that they didn't join the Society of Super Villans. But mostly, they do it for the money.

    Here, the main storyline is Scandal vs. her father, Vandal Savage, and all the wackiness that ensues. I can't get into too much detail because it's all spoilers.

    I will say that I grew to care about the characters, but Gail Simone has a knack of doing that with the characters she writes, so that is not suprising. Heck, she even made Mad Hatter 3-dimesional! What is suprising is that Catman is able to go head-to-head with Cheshire, but I chalk that up to Cheshire going easy on him, there's no way he should be able to hang.

    And my last words on this are based on the end of the book: Ragdoll's a douche.

  • Swiftly moving past the cruddy title - “Six Degrees of Devastation”, which sounds like an emo high school band’s name - I was hoping this book was going to reveal to me the brilliance of “fan favourite” Gail Simone’s Secret Six series that I’d missed with the last Six book (Cats in the Cradle) and the first issue of the New 52 re-launch that I’d read. And it didn’t. If anything, Six Degrees was worse than both and made me completely give up on the series!

    Six Degrees is labelled as Volume 0 meaning, at least to me, that this was a beginning, a jumping on point for the title. I was expecting an origin story, possibly truncated, to explain why these disparate individuals decided to start working together, how they came up with their name, their headquarters, yadda yadda yadda - and I got bupkis. Nada. They’re a fully-formed unit and this one reads like it may as well be Volume 7 or 8!

    My problems from the last book persist: they’re neither secret nor six - in this they are five until Jervis Tetch aka Mad Hatter joins them and then later Cheshire, which makes them seven. It’s such a stupid name for a series! I also mentioned in Cats in the Cradle that there’s no major difference between Simone’s Six and Suicide Squad. But if Simone is basically producing a weak facsimile of the Suicide Squad with the Secret Six, she becomes even less imaginative in this volume by lifting a storyline from 90s Batman comics using a pale imitation of Ra’s Al-Ghul in Vandal Savage.

    Once upon a time, Ra’s Al-Ghul wanted an heir and he wanted his daughter Talia to get knocked up by Batman. It happened, after Batman was roofied, and in 2006 we got Damian Wayne courtesy of Grant Morrison and the rest is history.

    In Six Degrees, we have another immortal nobleman, Vandal Savage, with an army of ninjas and enormous resources with a daughter, Scandal (and by the way, what a rubbish name!), whom he wants to produce an heir by getting knocked up by Catman.

    Oh, the originality!! Y’know, I’m getting more and more puzzled as to why I thought Simone was a halfway decent writer in the first place - her work in this, and other Secret Six comics, has been atrocious! She’s lifted Suicide Squad and given it a superficial makeover, she’s lifting Batman plots, and she’s a one-trick pony, once again having the Six fight amongst themselves because we can’t go one team book at DC where they’re not battling one another! It’s soooo tedious to see this crap again. That and the dreary dialogue (“hospital food is terrible!”, how droll!) makes this an utterly dismal reading experience.

    The Six seems to be receptacle for B-list Batman villains to congregate while waiting to appear in a Batman comic and pretend they’re interesting – and they’re not. The other “original” characters (so far as I know) are derivative, like Ragdoll is the C-list Deadpool impressionist while Vandal is some random ninja lady. Knockout – yes, this is the name of a character! – is Glory-lite.

    The other half of this story is a weak plot about Vandal Savage wanting to kill off the Six because… Anyway, he employs Dr Psycho as a front to do this and, because of Psycho’s psychic powers(?) Catman hires Mad Hatter to counteract him. With hats?

    I’m not the biggest champion of old Jervis as a character because he’s essentially a Lewis Carroll creation shoe-horned into Gotham for giggles, but I was appalled with the way Simone wrote him here. It was stupid enough when Jervis was suddenly revealed to have psychic powers (so far as I know this is the only book he has them!) and we know he’s got a thing for hats (he puts hats on fruit because joke!) but did we have to have a scene where he literally PORKS A HAT?! This actually happened! What does that add to the story?!

    I disliked everything about this comic from the bad story, awful characterisation (when there was any), forgettable dialogue, all the problems listed above and even more I’m forgetting. As a Volume 0, this is one of most pitiful beginnings to a series I’ve ever seen. It doesn’t set anything up and it doesn’t explain anything. I could brush all of that aside if I got a good story instead but there’s nothing but crap here.

    Secret Six – all of the comics I’ve read of it – has been so disappointing and bad that I don’t even rate Simone as a decent writer anymore. I don’t know why she’s a “fan favourite” writer, I don’t know why this title is considered good in the slightest, all I know is it isn’t for me. So long, Secret Six, you are an overrated and utterly pants series!
