Stenbeck, who is renowned for his contributions to the Hellboy universe, expressed his enthusiasm for his first solo series, stating,
“I’m really excited to get my first solo series out into the world. My aim was to make something I would enjoy reading myself. It’s very different from any of the work I’ve done before, but I hope it’s still as entertaining in its own way.”Ben Stenbeck

Early reviews of “Our Bones Dust” have already begun to pour in, with fellow artist and collaborator Mike Mignola offering high praise,
“I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Ben for about a million years now, so I’m a bit conflicted saying this—But I think this, his first big solo effort, is the best thing he’s ever done. I’d like to think maybe I taught him everything he knows, but the truth is he’s always been great and now he’s just taken that extra step and has finally become that truly great creator he was always meant to be.”Mike Mignola
Prominent artist Frank Quitely also lauded the series, saying,
“This is great stuff. ‘Our Bones Dust’ is a perfect example of ambitious world-building and effective storytelling working together to deliver a real page-turner.”Frank Quitely
