      Craig Mathieson The Age (Australia) It’s bolshie fun for an adolescent audience, with a smidge of Doctor Who, although it’s not as good as Joe Cornish’s equally spectral Lockwood & Co, which Netflix cancelled after just one season. May 2, 2024 Full Review Valerie Anne Autostraddle Overall, the show is really fun. It has supernatural case-of-the-week style mysteries, plus overarching enemies to contend with. It has themes of loss and identity and trauma, all while being funny and irreverent in between its serious moments. May 1, 2024 Full Review Valerie Ettenhofer Inverse In some ways, Dead Boy Detectives is decidedly average, but it manages to rise above the teen-oriented genre competition thanks to its strong sense of imagination, style, and fun. Apr 29, 2024 Full Review Joly Herman Common Sense Media The action kicks in and only lets up for snappy dialogue in this carefully crafted, spooky show. May 15, 2024 Full Review Jonathan Garcia Dynamic Duel Podcast Its charismatic cast and offbeat charm makes this whimsical mystery/horror series a frighteningly good addition to the Sandman television universe. Rated: 4/5 May 14, 2024 Full Review Aglaia Berlutti Hipertextual After the success of 'The Sandman', the universe imagined in Neil Gaiman's works is only growing on the small screen. This is demonstrated by the premiere of another of his iconic stories. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: A+ May 12, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
