Locke and Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to LovecraftLocke and Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great start to a promising horror/dark fantasy series. There’s lots of big plot happening, but Hill chooses to focus on the characters, which is what helps make the story so memorable and effective. Rodriguez’s art, on the other hand, takes some getting used to. It’s not bad, but it can be overly angular, and from a distance many characters look the same. But he does draw Keyhouse itself very, very well. I’m eager to see where the story goes after this. I’ve already put the next volumes on my Amazon wish list!
