After the death of Rendell Locke, his wife and children move cross country to live with his brother Duncan in their family home. But it wasn't any ordinary death -- Rendell was murdered by one of his students and the family is haunted by the ordeal.

I actually watched the Netflix show Locke & Key and was invested in it before realizing it was based on a book series. I know many people like to intone 'the book is always better,' but I think that it's often a case of what medium you were exposed to first. In this case, I think I enjoyed the TV series more. For instance, it could be scarier with less blood and more sound cues (creepy voices, music, etc.).

The book certainly does touch on the inner lives of the characters, but I felt the show explored this more (although of course I watched multiple seasons compared to having read just one volume of the book series so far). I had a lot more sympathy for killer Sam in the show who was manipulated into doing what he didn't want versus killer Sam in the series who is also manipulated but much more gleeful about spewing violence wherever he goes.

That being said, there are some differences like that between the book and the show that make me interested enough to check out the next volume of the series to see where things go next (even if I do have a sense of the bigger picture already). ( )

I've heard a lot about this graphic novel, everyone I know who read it loves it and always encourages me to read it, so I finally did. I gotta say I the synopsis does not prepare you for the number of emotions this evokes out of you.

The Graphics/ Artwork
Gabriel Rodriguez did an amazing job bringing the characters of Hill's imagination to life. Usually taking such heavy content and animating makes it loose some of the emotion, not in this case. Rodriguez did a wonderful job painting turmoil on each character's face, while simultaneously evoking that same emotion in the reader. Brilliant use of color and sometimes lack thereof really sets the tone of certain scenes.

The Story
Hill does an amazing job of taking the tragic story of the Locke's and their journey to Keyhouse and giving it life. To be honest, I don't think I prepared myself enough for it, I was prepared for horror but you get so much more than that in this Graphic Novel. You see this family that has been torn apart by loss, who now have to struggle to keep themselves from falling apart, move to Keyhouse and have to deal with a new place as well as the freaky shit that keeps going on.

Overall
Overall the story is great, but I couldn't bring myself to give it a full 5 stars, this is probably because the story left me with some many questions. These questions I know will be answered as I read through the other books, but still, it should give a hint. ( )

I'm a bit confused, but intrigued by the story. Its a bit creepy. The art work is great! I look forward to reading further in the story and having a few things cleared up. ( )

I loved this. Not sure why it took me so long to get around to reading it. I love Joe Hill. This is a great horror comic. Lots of twists and a great story. The art was fantastic. ( )

In this first volume, I feel like we only dip our toes in the story. Something happened with a trucker that I'm like whyyyy about, but nevertheless I eagerly placed holds on the next two volumes before I was halfway through this.

The story seems to center around 3 siblings. They remind me a bit of the Baudelaire orphans, especially in their introduction. After a tragic incident, they go to live with an uncle in the old family mansion. ( )

There are so many comics published these days that it's impossible to keep up on them all—not to mention, who can afford to? But there are shining examples of the genre that shouldn't be missed and this is one... I don't want to tell you too much because the joy of inventive series such as this is in your discovery of each new marvel and danger. Let me just say that Hill never goes exactly where you think he will, and therein lies much of the pleasure.
