“A virtuoso adaptation…a master of fantastical landscapes, Russell sharpens the realism of his imagery, preserving the humanity of the characters and heightening the horror, even as Gaiman’s concise storytelling ratchets up the eeriness.” (Booklist (starred review))
“A deliciously dark graphic adaptation of Gaiman’s modern classic...sure to delight established fans and to mesmerize newcomers.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))
“This adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel reads as though it were intended for the graphic novel format in the first place.… Russell’s illustrations suit the tone of the story perfectly. (School Library Journal (starred review))
“This graphic novel is as dark, creepy, and brilliant as anything out there.” (Chicago Tribune)
