Locke & Key, Vol. 6: Alpha & Omega by Joe Hill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The creature that calls itself Dodge has gotten ahold of the Omega key and plans to open the black door at the same time that the high school after-prom party is scheduled to take place in the caves. No longer trying to hide his presence, Dodge launches an all-out attack on Keyhouse, its denizens, and their friends. When all is said and done, not everyone will get out alive. Joe Hill’s LOCKE & KEY has been an amazing series from issue one — a single, cohesive novel in sequential art form. (And Gabriel Rodriguez’s incredible and evocative art has done it all kinds of justice.) Hill writes his characters so authentically I couldn’t help but care about them, and when some of them don’t make it to the end I was legitimately saddened by their loss. But still, this is a very satisfying end to a gripping and compelling story. I’ll miss hanging out with the Locke family.
