Praise for A Study in Emerald:

The artwork is on point, with vivid period atmosphere and details shifting to eerie otherworldly scenes… leaving the reader retreading the plot with a sense of horror that lingers long after the close.” – Publishers Weekly 

“Gaiman has a deliberate storyteller voice, a measured and recognizable intention of voice. Albuquerque and Scavone keep the chorus intact, giving a modern feel to a classic yarn in the inimitable Dark Horse style. A comic from then made for now.”—Doom Rocket

Praise for How to Talk to Girls at Parties:  

“Few things compare to the sense of wonder I get as I read and reread this comic.”—Geeks of Doom 

“This is a creation by two artists who have a fundamental understanding of how and why a story works and is able to translate into a new medium, keeping the whole of the story intact while exploring those nooks and crannies of the story that might have gotten lost in the prose.” – Multiversity 

Praise for Murder Mysteries:

“… Russell conveys a bright, illuminated world of purity and divine experimentation. His crisp and vividly rendered drawings capture the haunting sense of loss and isolation Gaiman expresses in this mythic tale of love and jealousy.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire

“A wonderful story that will leave you entertained and amused. Neil Gaiman’s writing is witty, whimsical and clever and Shane Oakley’s art is a perfect accompaniment to this satirical Gothic tale.” – Impulse Gamer

Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire is a gorgeous graphic novel and a must read for any Gothic horror enthusiasts”—Rogues Portal
