This Week’s Must Read: Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #9

Aphra’s back with a brand-new plan that’s guaranteed to pay! There’s just one teensy problem…It involves surrounding herself by some of the galaxy’s biggest baddies. And they don’t like Aphra’s tricks!

If you haven’t already been reading Doctor Aphra, this seems like a good issue to jump in. She’s an archeologist with a predilection for reprogramming droids and, oh… she used to work for Darth Vader. Aphra’s got a bit of the lovable scoundral quality that Han does, only with far looser morals — meaning she’ll take on just about any job to make a buck. As new Star Wars characters go, Aphra’s been a great addition and in the hands of writer Kieron Gillen, a darkly funny character.

This Week’s Must Read: Clean Room Vol. 3

Superstar writer Gail Simone and artists Walter Geovani and Sanya Anwar bring the first arc of one of the most terrifying tales ever published by Vertigo to a close in CLEAN ROOM VOL. 3: WAITING FOR THE STARS TO FALL.
Astrid Mueller, the famed pulp novelist turned New Age guru, knows the secret horror that lurks beneath the surface of the world. She can see the vicious Entities pecking and clawing their way into our reality, sowing hatred and cruelty and death out of sheer sadistic glee. She has dedicated her life to developing tools, technology and an army of believers to stop them.
But now the final hour is here, and Astrid is out of action. Her closest friends and followers have been compromised, her headquarters is the site of a mind-numbing bloodbath—and that’s just a taste of the unspeakable evil that will soon engulf the world.
Can Astrid and her allies rally enough strength to stop this all-out assault and save what remains of humanity? Or will the power of the Clean Room be twisted into the ultimate weapon of defilement?
Collecting CLEAN ROOM VOL. 3 collects CLEAN ROOM issues #13-18 of the acclaimed series.

I loved this series when it originally came out as a monthly book. It was easily the most original horror title I’d read in a long while and I was sad to see it go. If you haven’t given this series a try, pick up the three volumes collecting it immediately!
