I love Gail Simone, and I love this book. It is weird and gross and off-putting, and that’s to say the least. I loved this books weird demon-lady on regular-lady nude hot tub moment, which was totally weird and off-putting while being just a little bit sexy… but still creepy. That is the best way to describe this book, I think- a little bit sexy or titillating, while making your stomach turn, further confusing you as to what you are actually feeling one moment to the next. Things aren’t getting much better for Chloe Pierce, and it seems like Astrid Mueller is in some deep doo-doo as well. So this is not a happy-go-lucky and funloving story. It involves lots of death and blood and nudity and demonic things. I loved the horribly manipulative and disgusting way Astrid dealt with the Rook (see high-ranking cult member) who was possessed by the weird blank eyed, face-twisting demon thing, by bringing up the most terrible and chilling moment from his past, where he inadvertently let his brother die diving headfirst into a pool because he, as a hormonal teenager was distracted by a hot babe in a bikini. Again- sexy, and disturbing. I love this book, but I do NOT love what it does to make my stomach do cartwheels each issue.
