    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakitt Nov 16, 2008

    It can be hard to find new, original ideas in comics, but this is definitely one of them. Although this first issue was a little light on plot, Wheaton and Fialkov have still written an excellent fusion of noir and supernatural horror that loves its genres and respects their trappings. And to compliment the unique tale, Rashan Ekedal's art is suitably detailed and gritty, proving to be the right choice to realize Wheaton and Fialkov's story. I can't wait to grab the next issue and see where they go with this. Read Full Review

    Overall I think Ive got another title to add to my reading list. Im really looking forward to seeing how much further things will escalate and what made Bellarmine become a cleaner. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Nov 17, 2008

    The art doesn't move me that much, and seems better suited for an indie title. Considering the story is a huge departure for most mainstream companies, the art fits the nature of the story, and I just went with it. I will be getting the rest of this series, simply because I want to see if the central character is put in a life or death situation, if there are more cleaning tips, or to see if this story devolves into some type of vampire book. I like The Cleaners enough to give it 3 Stars out of 5. Read Full Review

    There are only four issues in this mini-series and with one down the story should hopefully pick up in the next issue, but there isn't any guarantee of greatness. Sadly, The Cleaners comes off as another back of the rack comic. Read Full Review
