From the minds of superstar writer Gail Simone and gifted artist Jon Davis-Hunt comes CLEAN ROOM VOL. 1: IMMACULATE CONCEPTION--a new vision of horror that takes you inside the locked chambers of sex, science, celebrity, and the supernatural. Somewhere between the realms of self-help and religion lies the Honest World Foundation. Its creator started out as an obscure writer of disposable horror fiction who decided to change the world--one mind at a time. Now its adherents rule Hollywood while obeying their leader's every command. That's almost all that anyone knows about the movement--or is it a cult?--founded by reclusive guru Astrid Mueller. But reporter Chloe Pierce is sure that there's something deeper hiding behind Honest World's facade. Her fiance was a devoted follower of Mueller, right up to the moment that he blew his brains out while holding a copy of her book. Now Chloe wants answers from the woman whose words command the loyalty of millions--and she's ready to storm the top-secret sanctuary known as the Clean Room to get them. But there's more to Astrid Mueller than Chloe could ever imagine--and the truth that she's about to discover is more astonishing than any of Astrid's accomplishments, and more terrifying than any of her novels. Collects issues #1-6.
