"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
