With so many great comics series to read, it can be difficult remembering what happened in a previous issue as we head into the current one. The Recap Page is here to help readers remember what they need to know as a new issue looms.
This week, Clean Room #7 by writer Gail Simone and Jon Davis-Hunt delves into the backstory of its pseudo-antagonist, Astrid Mueller --- a New Age self-help guru and the leader of a cult that might save the world, destroy it, or do both at the same time.
Imagine you had the perfect life with everything you ever wanted and a partner to share it with. Now imagine that your partner read a self-help book that drove them insane to the point of suicide. Wouldn't you want answers? That's the kick-off to Gail Simone and Jon Davis-Hunt's Vertigo series Clean Room.
Within six issues, we've followed Chloe Pierce as she tries to understand the inner-workings of a Scientolgy-like cult headed by the enigmatic Astrid Mueller, and things keep getting stranger and more unsettling the further down the rabbit hole we go. ComicsAlliance chatted to Gail Simone about building the world of Clean Room, plus Vertigo provided us with pages from this week's Clean Room #7!

Criminal though it feels that AMC will withhold Preacher until May 22, the Walking Dead network has at least a few flickers of mercy. Case in point, a familiar-looking official poster for the new series has arrived, along with a fiery new teaser that turns everything you know upside down.
The Walking Dead Season 6 may have come to a close (the controversy is another matter), but a Fear-ful Sunday return will also bring another look at AMC’s next horror smash. Smile, Preacher fans, Cassidy has a wide grin and a brand-new extended look at the series coming this Sunday.
For the past few months, Shawn Aldridge and Scott Godlewski's The Dark And Bloody has been quietly flying under the radar, so if you've missed out, here's the basics: Iris Gentry is a veteran of the Iraq War who came home to Kentucky after his service to a wife, son, and a thriving business selling moonshine out of his back yard to the thirsty hillbilllies in a dry county. Unfortunately, he brought back a few things with him: Bad memories of the war, a secret about something he did overseas, and, perhaps most importantly, a weird crow monster that wants to kill and possibly eat him by using said hillbillies as its zombie proxies.
As you might expect, that last one has been slowly moving toward the center stage over the past few issues, and since last issue ended with Iris shooting his former pals in the face, he's starting #3 in a whole heap of trouble. Check out a preview below!
You didn’t think AMC would let The Walking Dead Season 6 fianle weekend go by without a sneak peek of its next big horror hit, did you? You best go see the Preacher, now that the AMC comic drama has a brand-new teaser trailer filled with new footage.

This month it all goes down. The DC Rebirth is in full effect, with nearly every single title in the catalog getting reshaped to suit the future of DC Comics' publishing plans. In an effort to revitalize the line and go back to the legacies of each and every character, the DC Universe is getting shaken up in a big way. Starting in June and running through the following months, nearly every book, character and creative team is getting a major shake-up. The DCU will never be the same again.
You might not know it by the solemn first trailer, but AMC’s long-awaited Preacher adaptation will bring plenty of weirdness and colorful characters with outlandish afflictions. Case in point, the first official photo of Eugene “Arseface” Root has arrived, a bit scaled down from the comics, but no less unseemly.
On this day in 1985, a man walked into a bar. It was a punk bar; this was 1985 in comic-book London, after all. The man was named John Constantine, and he was there looking for a friend who had information about the end of the world. It all happened in the pages of Swamp Thing #37, written by Alan Moore with art by Rick Veitch and John Totleben; the "American Gothic" storyline was beginning in earnest, and Moore's legendary run was kicking into high gear.
According to Moore, the character of Constantine owes his debut to the fact that Swamp Thing's regular artists, Totleben and Stephen R. Bissette, were big fans of the band The Police, and they wanted to draw a character who looked like the lead singer, Sting. Even though it ended up being Veitch on the pencils for Constantine's first appearance, he is unmistakably a dead ringer for the British musician.
