    I definitely wound up with more questions than answers in Clean Room #4, but that's okay because I love this series. I've never before been invested in something so gory that still has me chomping at the bit for more. I love every single issue that comes out for Clean Room because of Gail Simone's plots and because of Jon Davis-Hunt's skill at balancing beauty with darkness. It's a series worth returning to because the ending of this arc is going to be one to shatter all our expectations. I seriously can't wait to see what terrifying things our creative team will bring us next month! Read Full Review

    Clean Room #4 advances the narrative, but is still the first issue of the series that could be tagged with the dreaded “decompression” label. One could imagine not missing much by only reading spoilers, especially considering that the normally beautiful and powerful horror elements are somehow kind of cartoonish this time. There's a promise in the dialogue that things will pick up next issue, though, and the creative team has earned enough good will at this point to not doubt it. Read Full Review

    The book's end pages do well in setting up a real, and potentially present, conflict, but until the narrative catches up to it's obvious spectacle, this book will fall just short. Read Full Review

    And so, it continues to grow. It continues to grow and I can't wait to see what it becomes.

    This book is some dark, dark stuff. And definitely not for children. This issue features a collage page of naked people, like a TON of nude bodies. Like a lot. Its really a gorgeously drawn book, and besides the creepy nude scene, the rest of the book is really, really good. I like how there are two vastly different storylines going on here, but they both seem to have more than just a little bit in common. The end of the issue with Chloe and the thing that was in her house was SUPER dark, and a wicked twist I did NOT see coming. The Clean Room scene was SUPER gory and gross, and I wasn’t expecting it to go so bad so quickly. I liked the character that was possessing the man in the Clean Room, and how sadistic and gross he was, and how alm more

    Uh-oh. It's starting to wander, I'm worried.
