Graphic Novel/Comic Review: "Locke & Key Volume 1: Welcome to Lovecraft" by Joe Hill
Joe Hill writes some of the creepiest stories out there, and when you pair his story with Gabriel Rodriguez's art - get ready. The circumstances surrounding Rendall's grisly murder are explained slowly, not sparing the emotions felt by the three kids or Nina. The murderer isn't exactly random either, and that leads to even more curious and mysterious questions surrounding this family. These questions lead to the magical mysteries surrounding the house as well.
I wasn't completely sure about this book, and the subsequent series but I am hooked after this volume. I am looking forward to reading more - seeing how the family gets out of their current situation and discovering more about the house and its secrets!
