Gail Simone is returning to arguably the best series she's ever written in the New 52 version of The Secret Six. This new run offers the same premise of villainous characters brought together by mysterious forces to run black ops that could cost them their lives.
Along with artist Ken Lashley, Simone will bring what made her original run so enjoyable, great chemistry and unexpected twists and turns. No one was safe and there's always moral ambiguity in their missions and an uneasy alliance among themselves. Back for the ride is Catman, whose place in the DC universe was resurrected by Simone making him a strong sympathetic leader after spending time on comic book D-list, and Black Alice who uses her magic to take-on the powers of other beings.
The other four members and their mission are a mystery but this five page preview that was provided exclusively to HitFix might give away some clues.
Secret Six #1 arrives in stores and digitally on December 3, 2014.
