    Walter Geovani continues the tradition of limiting the black and dark areas in the comic, especially in the well-lit clean room. But outside, in the streets, he did use good amounts of inks. He knows how to ink and play with light and dark. But he is choosing to focus on the bright. That, as I have written before, is a good choice. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 29, 2017

    If this is the end of Clean Room, it is an incredibly satisfying conclusion. Writer Gail Simone ties up a number of loose ends, pulling everything together in a nice finale. I obviously hope to see much more of this amazing series that has terrified and delighted me for eighteen solid issues. All too often a story can keep you excited in the beginning and middle, but fall short in the end. I'm happy to say that that is not the case here. Clean Room delivers on all fronts.

    Gail was able to paint such a wonderful and specific story to read. From the images of an almost cast like system… to the monsters hidden among friends. Every inch of this book was fantastic. Horror, much like the superhero stories, can easily fall into the same old predictable troupes. Considering this, Gail was able to take us on a journey into a whole new type of horrific, that felt fresh and exciting. Everyone should go and find the first 18 issues of Clean Room, and prepare yourself for a ride! Read Full Review

    The book's finale delivers on most, if not quite all, of the book's presumed promises. The resolution, while quick, is nevertheless effective, Simone bringing her expansive cast together in ways that fit well within the preexisting confines set by the story. Read Full Review

    I really liked this series, for the most part, and this issue is no exception. It does feel like everything wrapped a little too quickly, something having more to do with the business of comics I think than Gail Simone's plan for the series. Anyway, I found the character of Astrid the most interesting part in this series, and she shines in defeating the demons here. I like the ending of the novel, and even though the overall story didn't play out in as much depth as I expected, it's good enough.
