review Secret Six Vol 5

Secret Six Vol 5N kidnap his long lost son His Secret Six teammates come to his aid and together they chase the kidnappers to Africa leaving a bloody trail o. Secret Six is at its best when it's allowed to stand on its own Unfortunately this collection includes several crossovers The main story focuses on a completely random battle between the team's factions in Skartaris While allowing for the addition of some interesting extra characters the fantastical setting is hardly used other than being a stage for a random demon all the while counterpointed with espionage games between Amanda Waller and Atom Smasher None of which adds much to the charactersThere's also a two parter that was part of a year long Luthor series which at least lets the characters shine in a showdown between Luthor and Vandal Savage It's okay and the characters are used fairly well but they're still being shoehorned into someone else's plotSimone's writing still shines through and the characters are as darkly fun as always but the scenario just doesn't live up the players

While I was worried about the Secret Six being broken up in this edition I'm happy to say that 1 they aren't totally horrible to each other and 2 things get resolved one way or another pretty uickly Catman is still reeling from losing his son so he is kind of out of it but everyone else is fairly put together and with it I thought that the big war they found themselves in was kind of silly but at the same time I'm happy that it addressed the ideas of colonialism and imperialism of all things Nothing really funny to be had in this collection which was a serious shame Seeing Scandal and Bane's relationship evolve a bit was very lovely they are so father daughter now that it's hard to see them on the opposite sides of disputes Also lots of King SharkNot as strong as Volume 4 but still a good volume Especially since we find out that Deadshot likes to call Jeanette 'Sweetie Pie Cookie Puss' I ship them so hard
