It has been 30 years since I have read a "comic book" but I have to say that the term "graphic novel" is much more appropriate for this book. I have an appreciation for the genre and am looking forward to exploring the classic graphic novels.

Welcome to Lovecraft was a compelling story in and of itself and the art work could not have fit more into the story line. I found myself completely entranced as both the writer and the narrator brought their own individual voice to this story. Some of my favorite scenes had no narration, just a perfect, often understated, picture that set the scene or delivered a jolt better than any narration could have. What is the old saying? It is certainly true here that silent pictures often spoke volumes. I took my time with this book, savoring each frame.

Upon completing this book I can tell you that I will be constantly checking Amazon for when the second part is available in a Kindle edition. Which brings me to the second thing I meant to say---this edition looks fantastic on my Kindle Fire. You can set it to a blow up frame by frame mode which really enhances the reading experience, especially when the art is this good.

Dark, compelling, and scary, Hill has set up what I am sure is going to be a wonderful series, tied together by a set of keys that unlock doors and lead to new adventures or horrors. I am really looking forward to reading this series. ( )

Came for the art, stayed for the story. Art's a touch better than the story, but both are pretty good. ( )

Magical keys and doors are not a new motif, but Hill and Rodriguez's take is still very well done. The focus is often on the doors (as the main passageways to magic), but I rather enjoyed the twist that the keys are the important parts this time around. We've only introduced to a few of the themed keys so far, so the series has a lot of potential for growth.

Where the authors stick with convention is with their characters. Three children (siblings) are the protagonists and become the centre focus after their father is murdered. This first storyline focuses on Bode (the youngest) more than the other two, since it is he who encounters the creepy woman in the well and who finds the first few keys. Being a child he is almost completely taken in by the well woman, so he becomes her method to getting the keys she needs to escape from the well. She may have gotten what she wants for now, but Bode seems to have wised up to her ulterior motives. ( )

An old roommate of mine loaned the first three collections of this to me; I'm only revisiting them now through Comixology. This is truly great stuff - it's really creepy, but grounded...but at the same time hinting at even greater horrors to come. I'm usually not much of a horror comics guy, but I really enjoyed this - I think I attribute that to both Joe Hill being great (of course) and Gabriel Rodriguez nailing the look - it's not hyper-realistic but it feels "right" for the series.

Really violent and dark, so not my normal cup of tea. I didn't think I'd like it halfway through, but then the mystery and ghostly elements sucked me in. I liked the quick flashbacks, revealing small pieces of each character's backstory. They were small enough to not distract from the current timeline, but gave just enough information to be useful. The artwork was not my taste, but worked well with the dark elements; just a bit gory and harsh for my enjoyment. I need a break but will definitely read the next volume to get some more answers. ( )

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.
