Secret Six #21

That sound you hear is me doing my dance of joy as DC has delivered me another Catman-centric Secret Six issue. YES! Thomas Blake's search for his son leads him to South Africa, and a trail of bodies for his former teammates to follow. Writer Gail Simone's journey of turning Catman from the pathetic punchline of Brad Meltzer (GRRRRR) into one of the most frightening non-super-powered individuals around the DCU (YES!) seems complete. Catman is back, in all his glory, and badder than ever. The speed and skill with which he takes down the super-human Loki (dumping a truck on him and then severing his spine before leaving him to be eaten alive by a pack of lions) is pretty damn impressive, and more than a little gruesome. Must-read!

[DC $2.99]
