One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Secret Six #29
GOOD THING: Lex Luthor hires the Secret Six (Plus One) as protection from Vandal Savage. Hilarity ensues.
BAD THING: Thanks to DC's cover-scheme this month - which forwent the usual covers having something to do with the book in favor of some very nice pin-up shots, I had no way of knowing that this issue was meant to be Part Two of a story started in Action Comics #896.
Thankfully, Simone does a good job of setting the issue up so that you don't have to have read Part One. Still, it would have been nice to have some warning of this before I'd left the comic book store.
The Final Verdict: A fantastically funny issue that brings our favorite band of misfits into contact with two of the greatest villains in the DC Universe. Word of advice though - snag Action Comics #896 first. You don't have to read it first... but it helps.
