thoroughly engaging…. I have a really good feeling about this one – definitely check it out.
All in all this is a fascinating series with a great sense of atmosphere and premise.
Locke & Key is turning into an incredibly original fantasy/thriller. I know I tend to say this about any halfway decent independent title, but it's so unbelievably refreshing to want to read a book that doesn't feature superheroes.
as a package it's hard to deny this series is one of the stronger new properties to hit the industry. I'd highly recommend you give it a shot and see if you are willing to enter the world of Locke & Key.
Locke & Key is absolutely one of the best independent books on the shelf. It is also unlike anything else out there. -Richard George -

"Chilean artist Gabriel Rodriguez captures the childhood/adulthood tension perfectly with artwork that is wide-eyed, bold and innocent and yet manages also to capture clearly the more sinister and violent elements of the story"
