Bookmark: Locke & Key

I’m reading “Clockworks” the 5th collection of Locke & Key, the incredibly high concept horror comic series from Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez.  A fun story but more importantly a fun gimmick that centers around the Locke family home (appropriately called “Keyhouse”) where there exist a growing number of magical keys that do strange, wonderful but weird and downright creepy things when inserted into the right lock.

Rodriguez’s art is almost always fantastic and adds a lot to the suspense.  Hill has a big imagination but it wouldn’t pack half the punch without the visuals.

And now just as with so many other great stories, I’m caught up and have to wait for the next release, just like everyone else.

UPDATE: Finished Volume 6 and presumably the end of the saga.
