Halloween is coming quickly so we wanted to talk about a comic that will scare the bejesus out of you – DC/Vertigo’s Clean Room.
It is written by Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Batgirl, Secret Six) with art by Jon Davis-Hunt (2000 AD). You may have overlooked this story with it’s initial print run of 18 issues but do yourself a favor and buy the trades. This comic is a real page turner. Once you start to find out what the truth is in the Clean Room universe you may want to stop turning pages but you will dare yourself to continue.
Jon did not read the original run so I gave him the first 6 issues and this is what we cover in the mostly spoiler free podcast. Jon mentioned that there was a creature that was briefly introduced named “Boop” and it gave him nightmares. Here is a picture of that creature:
This is one of the tamer looking monsters in Clean Room and this is what freaked him out. Can you imagine what else you will find? We talk about the series and what we believe are Gail Simone’s influences in the comic.
This comic is great and we cannot recommend it enough.
See you next week.
Your comics pal,
