Secret Six #8

Here's the review for Secret Six #8, in bullet format.

-This issue chronicled Deadshot going out on a date with Jeannette, the banshee. Deadshot wanted Catman to accompany him on the date, but Catman wouldn't go, so Scandal decided to go in his place.

-Scandal took the stripper who dressed as her dead girlfriend Knockout on the date to keep her company.

-The date was continually interrupted by some skinheads who wanted to get revenge on Deadshot from a couple of issues ago.

-The issue ends with Deadshot deciding that he was beginning to warm up to Jeannette and Scandal decides that although she'll probably never get over Knockout's death, she'll still try to enjoy life...

Yeah, um, I really didn't get this comic book... What the HELL was going on here??? Seriously, what was this? I guess Gail Simone(writer)wanted to give the team an easy time after the events of the last few issues, but I really didn't enjoy this comic at all, which was a bit surprising. This issue just fell totally flat for me. The jokes didn't work for me, which really hurt this comic, since it was supposed to be a funny interlude. I know Gail can do a better job than what was in this comic... Oh well, hopefully she'll pick back up again next issue, which looks like a "Batman: Battle for the Cowl" crossover issue. That should be good. For a score, I'll give this issue a 3 1/2 out of 10 and move on.
