Secret Six #30

Scandal Savage and Liana decide to arrange Bane's first date by hooking him up with one of the other dancers at Liana's strip club. The results are BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA!

The Secret Six take on the Doom Patrol in the middle of a river that's home to a mutated half-man/half-fish creature. And then there's the story of a full-time loser with nothing is left a destiny by his dying grandfather - a particle cannon and the seed of idea to bring glamor and style back to the world of crime. That, and a secret hideout inside a exploded volcano (which may not be as dormant as he believes).

The first-half of a two-part crossover with the Doom Patrol, this one's got it all (even a team of sexy parachuting female suicide bombers). Manic action from the first page to the last, writer Gail Simone shoots from both barrels here with both dark humor and the kind of ass kicking only the Secret Six can deliver. Must-read.
