"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.

Discussed:

  • Why D-List characters are so much fun
  • Scandal Savage Is Living the Lesbian Dream
  • Cigarettes, pools of blood and butts of all genders
  • Godbless you Nicola Scott for making Catman a sex symbol
  • Is this Bane?
  • Yes, you should watch Doom Patrol (hear our earlier coverage here http://bit.ly/doomP1and2
