"Richard Moore's Boneyard is one of the freshest comics on the market." -Nathan Melby, Comics Buyers Guide
"My favourite character here remains Abbey the vampire, and Moore is taking his time in developing the relationship between her and Michael -- their relationship is as charming as it is funny, and I am rooting for it to be permanent.
That's a key appeal of Boneyard, in that among all the gags and comedic situations, Moore remembers to give us stories featuring unique individuals we can sympathize with and laugh with, not just at. NBM is to be congratulated for continuing to collect the individual issues in these terrific graphic novels, highly recommended for readers of all ages. Grade: 4/5" -Alan David Doane, Comic Book Galaxy
"Mr. Moore has quite a vivid imagination, and his excellent black-and-white illustrative styles combined with a biting sense of sarcasm and the absurd make for quite a ghoulish evening of chuckles." -Joe Szadkowski, Washington Times
"***1/2 out of 4. If you're looking for a comedy adventure with echoes of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "The Addams Family," snap up this series, post haste." -Jeff Kapalka, Syracuse Post-Standard
"The next step or two beyond The Munsters and The Addams Family in horror sitcom. Pretty darn amusing." -Ray Olson, Booklist
"Oddly funny." -William Dowlding, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"Had me convulsed with laughter. There are a fair number of humorous-Gothic titles out there at the moment, including the likes of Gloom Cookie and Lenore. Boneyard is one of the better series and will appeal to readers of those titles and anyone who loved Edward Gorey, the Munsters or Charles Addam's creations." -The Alien Online.com
"Paris now finds himself about to lose his new home due to a large bill from the IRS. How to raise money? Would you believe Celebrity Ghoul Boxing? No? Then how about a Spectral Swimsuit Issue? All these possibilities and more are explored through the medium of Moore's fluid B&W artwork and his boffo dialogue." -Paul Di Filippo, Asimov's
