"Writer Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez aren't just deliverying one of the most oroginal horror stories in comic book history, they're truly creating a story that defies characterization, skipping easily between comedy, horror, drama, and the surreal." -- MTV Geek! "There are many qualities that make this series great, but one that has been showing in Clockworks is how Hill planned for this all along." -- IGN "I could heap praise on this series all day long, but at the end the experience would pale in comparison to simply reading the damn thing." -- Ain't It Cool News
