The bold, chunky art boasts a strong Frank Miller influence and gets better as the volume unfolds, engaging in bravura action sequences and daring pops of color.-- "Publishers Weekly"
The Cloven is a daring graphic novel that casts light on a dark fictional world, full of stories yet to be told.-- "Foreword Reviews"
Wildly, dizzyingly imaginative, and grimly allegorical.--Erik Larson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Devil in the White City
The evocative, unsettling world building is nicely matched by the shadowy artwork. The inky black silhouettes of the towering conifers and looming mountains of the Pacific Northwest, set against warm, saturated, watercolor-wash backgrounds of peachy sunsets, violet dusk, and bright-yellow artificial light are particularly striking.-- "Booklist"
A tense and disorienting (by intent) page-turner of a story, one that expertly spans lanes between more literary comics and the action-heavy monthly fair.-- "Comics Bookcase"
From the first stark, cut-you-to-the-bone scene, The Cloven is riveting -- a delightful modern-day twist on the Frankenstein story. The writing is stylistically dark; the art is vivid and strikingly beautiful. Stein and Southworth have created a masterful and unique world.--Neal Bascomb, New York Times bestselling author of The Winter Fortress and Faster
