    A note from the author:

    Dear potential reader,

    Please do not purchase the upcoming mini-series, the Secret Six, from whence the following preview came. As the sequel to the already very naughty Villains United mini-series, this series is rated W for ‘wrongness,’ and receives my highest possible warning for the following elements; naked hot guys, naked un-hot guys, shooting, child endangerment, spicy food, betrayal, bad fashion, explosions, mountain-climbing, obscure villains, an appalling fight with a DC superhero team, a run-in with the rudest waiter of all time, inappropriate humor, foot worship, a seven foot tall Apokoliptan she-warrior in a compromising position, blood, pain, sex, and eggs. If you have high cholesterol or a fear of spicy food, I urge you to pick up Archie’s Summer Spectacular Fun Happytime Digest instead. Be heart smart! Choose Riverdale!

    For those who simply have to test their blood pressure, this series features the Secret Six, the twisted and bent villains who chose to go it alone and defy the powerful Society, the largest collection of supervillains ever assembled in the DC Universe. In this new mini, two fresh members are added to the team, including one villain who is far more screwed up and dangerous than even his arch-enemy suspects. Someone’s rolling out huge money to have select members of the SIX assassinated, and has garnered the assistance of some of the Six’s worst rivals. But why? And how? And what does that have to do with eggs?

    Catman, Deadshot, Ragdoll, and Scandal all return, as does...Parademon?!?!

    Art by the amazing team of Brad Walker and Jimmy Palmiotti, doing some of the best work of their distinguished careers, and what do I give them to draw? Evil and punching and shooting and knife fights and lusty villains doing simply the most awful things.

    I really should be ashamed.

    Hanging her head sadly,

    Gail

    wtf?

    Gail, you're not Garth Ennis or Warren Ellis. Don't pretend to be.

    Villains United I thought was strictly "ok", nothing really special about it

    I don't get why you're b***hin' about naked guys (who won't even be fully shown, I mean, this isn't Vertigo, after all...). It's pretty much the same as the skin-tight spandex that both the heroes and villians all wear, just flesh colored.

    Looks good. I'm looking forward.

    I wonder if the same people that always rag on Winick for writing real world situations will also be singing the same song about Simone. Both Birds of Prey and now Villains United contain internment camps.

    i dont have anything against winick, i liked his GA, and his Batman was alright..I liked BoP when she first got on it, but the last arc pre OYL blew, and so did her Teen titans and Action comics.

    Assassin, you're hilarious.

    As to the Secret Six, I'll be picking it up. I really liked Villains United, and am happy that my favorite character (Mike the Parademon!) makes a comeback.

    Also, she made Catman freakin' cool. I mean, Catman. That's a bigger feat than most other writers can put to their credit.

    Also, here's to hoping we see a Captain Nazi/Catman feud develop.

    If her TT had had a six year old draw it it may have been good.
