"Well executed and just plain gorgeous...all the "Dreadfuls" out there will be very entertained by this" - Nerdist "A thrilling debut... dark, bloody and engaging. 9 out of 10" - Newsarama "Nothing short of fantastic!" - Slawjaw Punks "Captures the aesthetic of Penny Dreadful perfectly...9.5 out of 10" - Sci Fi Pulse "Excellent storytelling and fantastic art" - Fangirl Nation "It is incredibly dramatic. 9 out of 10" - Comic Wow "De Martinis' style is haunting" - Ain't It Cool "Captures the spirit and essence of the show perfectly...4 out of 5" - Nerdly "It has an abstract gothic style that reminds the reader of rotoscope animation. I immediately thought of Ralph Bakshi's Lord of the Rings or Richard Linklater's A Scanner Darkly. It's abstract, it's gothic and it's fun." - Word of the Nerd
