"a cool and fun read"
"Holmes is a dynamic presence... Watson is his own man. Culbard brings every character to life with his well placed brush strokes. Edginton does a beautiful job of reworking the prose novel’s many nuanced observations. ...a true comics adaptation of this famous murder mystery... a wonderful tribute to a book that was a Harry Potter sensation in its day."

"a classy, considered and faithful work that was a pleasure to read - pure unadulterated classic adventure."
with every memorable aspect of the Sherlock Holmes legend covered within. It’s obvious that Edginton and Culbard have put a great deal of love and attention into the tale and the first class production values from SelfMadeHero really make this a great adaptation."
"Edginton’s story sticks faithfully to the original, ignoring countless dilutions of the tale in movies and TV shows. This is the Holmes of the books, all genius and cunning, relishing the problems to be solved and enjoying the thrill of the chase. The scenes... are pitched perfectly and the dialogue feels just right. This is the Sherlock Holmes you always imagined when reading the books, this is the voice you always heard."
"tense, atmospheric, and intriguing... ever faithful to the dark mood which made it what Doyle himself called ‘a real creeper’. The artwork is outstanding and supported by an equally strong script...a great way to introduce The Hound of the Baskervilles to a new generation of readers, and bring an older generation back to one of the best detective stories ever written. First class."
"Holmes enthusiasts will be pleased and relieved by Edginton & Culbard’s back-to-basics approach, retaining the authentic tone and character of Conan Doyle’s original stories; hence no bumbling Doctor Watson nor deer stalker as added in later cinema and theatre versions."
