“Clue: Candlestick turns a board game into comic book brilliance.” –AV Club
“It’s brilliant stuff, and Shaw’s off-kilter art style only serves to keep readers further on their toes looking for clues amid the wild departures in color and tone.” –Newsarama “The puzzles within the book are a formidable cherry on top. The narration breaks on the regular so that the reader can break out a pen and scratch out connections, maze routes, tick off checklists. They’re delightful, actually, somewhere between a macabre Murderino phone game, The New York Times, and a homework assignment for a junior detective.” –Doom Rocket
