Format: Paperback
While I enjoyed the Villains United (Countdown to Infinite Crisis) mini-series (featuring the debut of the "Secret Six" anti-heroes), I felt that the "Infinte Crisis"-mandated beats cut into some of the characterization and stopped the story short. Gail Simone returned with "Secret Six: Six Degrees of Devastation," a brutally funny and mature take on the super-villain squad. Fans of Grant Morrison's "Doom Patrol" and other off-beat teams will find a lot to like here. I had to double-check the cover again for a "Vertigo" logo, because I couldn't believe that DC had given Simone such free reign with the characters within the confines of the mainstream DC Universe. The Mad Hatter sleeping with his hats is priceless.

After reading Villians United, I couldn't wait to pick up this trade to see what had happened next to the Secret Six. Did "Six Degrees of Devastation" hold up to my expectations? Yes and No

First off, props to Gail Simone for writing another fantastic story. My only gripe is that the story is not as funny as the last, but that doesn't mean there aren't some hilarious scenes. (The Mad Hatter has now become one of my favorite characters, if you read this then you know what I am talking about.)

Even though the story is up to par, the art drops the ball. It's pretty muddy for the most part but does improve as the series goes on. It's a shame that there are beautiful covers but the art itself is just average.

Therefore, I gave it 4 stars due to the art. Sad that there aren't any future stories for these characters at the moment because the ending will have you wanting more. (Except, I am tired of midgits seeking revenge against the Secret Six.)

Format: Paperback
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.
