"The Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead of the DCU"-- John Arminio. Secret Six is easily one of the 5 best cape comics of the 21st century. Staring a diverse team of D-List supervillians, the series was created by Gail Simone working with artists including Nicola Scott, Jim Calafiore and Brad Walker. The true heir to the legendary 1980s' Suicide Squad, this comic lovingly depicts mercenaries fucking up their contracts, backstabbing each other, then coming back together to tell the world to go to hell. I'm joined by comics retailer and critic John Arminio for a deep dive into this brilliantly dark, funny and groundbreaking early 00s series.
