Clean Room #9 - A Review
For most of her life, Astrid Meuller has been fighting a war against other-worldly entities that few people notice and even fewer can fight. Now, on death's door following an assassin's attack, she has asked that Chloe Pierce - an enemy of sorts who is one of the only other people she trusts to be competent enough to continue her work - be brought to the Clean Room, which the entities are unable to enter under normal circumstances. Unfortunately, Chloe brought an univited guest with her - an entity called Spark, who she believes to be far more benevolent than the manipulative Meuller...
If you aren't reading this book by now, I don't know what I can say that will convince you of your folly. What Gail Simone, Jon Davis-Hunt and Quinton Winter have created is easily the most original and best crafted series to come out of Vertigo in some time. Clean Room is a must read for all lovers of the strange and unusual.
