Culbard's bold, energetic cartooning contributes to bringing the story to life. --Comics Bulletin
More than just a tribute, this graphic novel is a cool and fun read too. --Newsarama
I relished every page and thought how this book would be the perfect primer for any child whose parents feel them to be just on the cusp of potential Holmes worship. --Rachel Cooke The Observer

I like the illustration style, John is drawn well and there are some really sweet moments. However the illustration style makes some characters, especially Sherlock, seem more sinister than they actually are.
