Secret Six #8

With a wide range of magical folks across the DCU targeting Black Alice, Catman and his teammates have a decision to make. Do they step in and try to help their new friend? And if so what is the proper action to take? Should the pillars that make up the White Gate be protected? Or should they be destroyed.

Memorable for Black Alice making several characters her bitch in the middle of her hospital stay and an unexpected undersea battle between Catman and Aquaman (much to the delight of Thomas Blake's teammates), Secret Six #8 also offers the return of Scandal Savage, Ragdoll, and Jeannette as Gail Simone continues to toy with fans of the original group and tease the idea of the real band getting back together.

There's plenty of action, bad decision making, and questionable choices that make-up a good Secret Six comic (even if we're still missing Deadshot and Catman seems stuck in that awful, awful New 52 costume). It appears that, thanks to the "help" of our anti-heroes things are going to get worse for the world before they get better. Worth a look.
