Locke & Key: Welcome To Lovecraft by Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez
Write 6 words you would put on this book if it were in the “Blind Date With A Book” shelf. Graphic Novel. Mystery. Murder. Secrets. Keys.
Any particular reason for choosing this book? I want to read all of Joe Hill’s work to date.
Genre: Graphic Novel/Science Fiction
What did you think of the cover art? Amazing: Gabriel Rodriguez’s art work is entrancing.
Who was your favorite character and why? Bode, because I can relate to him the most.
Who was your least favorite character and why? Sam Lesser, because he is evil and stupid.
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? An immediate attention grabber both with story and illustrations.
Was it plot or character driven? Another brilliant balance of both.
What did you think of the ending? Interesting enough to make me want to immediately grab the next book in the series.
What was the moral of the story? Be careful what you say to people, especially in moments of anger or frustration.
Favorite quote: Kinsey (thought to herself): “The key is to keep things simple.”
Would you read it again? Yes. The magic in the illustrations is enough to bring me back. I could spend hours looking at just a few pages.
Have you read other books in the series? I’m going to continue reading the remainder of the series.
Have you read other books by the same author? I’ve read all (3) of Joe Hill’s novels. Check out my review of NOS-4R2.
Would you like to see it adapted into a film? I think I would be disappointed if this was ever made into a film (unless it was animated by Gabriel Rodriguez).
Who would you recommend it to? Comic book, Joe Hill or Stephen King fans.

If you were a ghost and could only choose between helping those you loved, or haunting those you despised, which would you choose and why?
