@billy_batson: Was that ever collected?

It got one trade that's out of print.

He did a mini later that's been collected but that wasn't as good as his previous run.

Ostrander's Suicide Squad was much better than Secret Six.

@dagmar_merrill: I would say that you really should, but it seems like most of the trades are out of print these days, so that would be tricky. That said, you really should. It's quite good.

I'm going to read this book so hard. I loved Simone's first Secret Six run. Hopefully this one lasts longer than 8 issues.

DC will be reprinting Simone's run with newer bigger collections.

the legal jargon has pretty inaccurate through out the series.

Soule is literally doing one of the oldest legal trick, use language that lay people won't understand to make it seems harder then it is and you as the solicitor/barrister know what your doing, because you need to make the client think they need your service. I wasn't fooled by it, but then I'm in the profession, as result I found it a lot less enjoyable, neither really succeeding as either superhero comic or a legal drama. 3/5 the book would be better taking a lesson from Dan slott (oh god I'm regarding dan slott) approach to legal stuff: Gloss over it or make it silly.

That's weird since Soule is a lawyer himself.

What Marvel needs isnt good writers they have alot. What they need are good artists. Marvels art are on some Jack Kirby swag which aint cool. They should be ashamed of themselves. Its like wanting to use Playstaion one graphics on your PS4 games.

Are you saying Marvel's artists are like Kirby (which they aren't) and saying it's a bad thing (which isn't)?
