Newsarama has an excellent interview with Gail Simone, writer of Secret Six. The interview discusses the second year of this exceptional series.

[Newsarama]: One year since the Secret Six got their own title, the comic has established a dichotomy between two types of loyalty: While the characters in the comic seem to have little or no loyalty to their team, the readers of the comic are fiercely and vocally loyal.

Written by Gail Simone with art by Nicola Scott, Secret Six follows the story of six mercenaries, some of whom tend to come close to being anti-heroes and others that are just plain rotten villains. And despite their frequent in-fighting — which often comes to blows — the team has developed a shaky but ongoing bond that seems to keep them together.
