Locke and Key Vol 1: Welcome to Lovecraft
The Eisner-nominated Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them, and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all!
Locke and Key is an awesome mystery series that I found impossible to put down. The story is captivating from the very first page. I loved the mixture of a typical crime story blended with the supernatural, and the art and page layouts are stunning. Locke and Key is creepy, fascinating and beautifully drawn. I would recommend it to mystery or horror fans or to anyone who wants to read something a little different.
