Review: Clean Room Vol 2

Clean Room Vol. 2: Exile - Gail Simone, Jon Davis-Hunt

I learned my lesson with Volume 1, and did not read this right before going to bed or on a night I was sleeping alone.

 

Clean Room continues to be a great ride, bringing in new, unexpected twists and turns while rolling ever forward with each character's arc. The art is great, but the writing is fucking fantastic. I don't really like to do plot summaries, so let's just say everything about the sleazy sales man, including the end of his plot line, worked well. 

 

This is so good I'm starting to worry it's like the beginning of Lost and there's no plan besides "keep adding stuff." But if it stays this good, maybe I don't care.
