Nice! Thanks, SG. With that in mind, I'll just wait until Dec and get Secret Six when it hits rack, then.

I'm willing to give Simone a chance, but the missing characters, and "Saw"-like opening premise leaves me less excited than when this was first hinted at. After two years I came the see the New52 to he, at is best a poor redundancy of pre-FP, and I'm dreading this will be another beloved DC property that will be a shallow copy of its predecessor like the JSA book.

Yeah, pretty much par for the course. Did not care for the first issue much at all. Just call the damn book something else, "DC Saw" or something. Blah. Need to go reread some old issues to wash this out of my memory.

Please, tell me Scandal is back, for the love of Grodd.

Nope, not yet at least. And to some degree I'm actually happy she's not in this. I'd rather Jeannette, Scandal, and Rags don't get pulled into this. Hell, keep Floyd in the terrible Suicide Squad. The less this looks like the old Secret Six the less likely I'll be tempted to drop more money on toilet paper. The dialogue is pretty awful at points. Catman threatens to "spray" someone in their face so that "they know who they belong too" (ugh). It's all Simone characters, though ones I care nothing about. If you thought the preview looked like Saw then there's really no need to read this tripe unless you enjoy the feeling of regret. Hell, the only thing missing from the last page was a mini-tricycle.

Spoiler:
The characters so far are the now blatantly bi-sexual claustrophobic Catmanverinertooth(bad things happen when he's caged--oooooooh, groan), Strix(yawn), not Black Alice, female Ventriloquist (I think her dummy counts as one of the Six--or maybe I'm the dummy for hoping for too much?), and some guy named Big Shot who I think is new and will probably die soon

Though, come to think of it there was an unidentified brunette in the opening that could be Scandal. I pray I'm wrong.

Yeeesh!

Wait, are you referring to the tan woman with the short hair? I'm reading that's Porcelain.

I read the first issue and liked it for the most part. The art sucks, and so far it's not as fun as the old series, but I thought it was still pretty good in general. Picked up issue 2, and it was just awful.

Two was horrible. Art was awfuller. Seems to be trying too hard to be funny and edgy. Not caring for any of the characters, Catman especially. Ventriloquist is ok. Big Shot, I don't know. Maybe it'll get better but I haven't been impressed with either issue.
