This is a pretty good comic book series so far. It takes advantage of the visual aspect to show you things that just wouldn't have the same impact with words alone. People messing with your head really becomes more than just a creepy metaphor when you see it on the page. The characters are really starting to live for me. I care about them and the suspense is building as the plot becomes more complicated.

The artwork is outstanding.

This one's scary as hell! Not the head games part: that's pretty cool actually. But Zack aka Luke is one deranged monster! His torment of Ellie is particularly vicious. The portrayal of Rufus is nothing short of brilliant! And the art by Rodriguez , oh, it's so breathtakingly amazing! The depiction of Kinsey's tears and fear is so marvelous that I keep seeing those images even when I go to bed. Her relationships with Scot and Jamal are so realistically portrayed that you can empathize completely with the teenager, even though you might know better. Bode is the heart of the book that seems to hold the whole story together. One of the best things I liked was the portrayal of Brian, Duncan's partner. I'd imagined Duncan with a sexy, younger man, but after seeing Brian's picture, I thought he was perfect for Duncan.
But the best character, by far, is Zack. The sheer evil! He deserves to be right up there with the likes of Sauron and Voldemort. ( )

THIS COMIC FREAKS ME OUT SO BAD! Yet I can't seem to stop reading them... It just takes a while.

Also I can't really tell why it freaks me out. But I have a very low threshold for scary things so maybe that's it? ( )

Loved it. Another great graphic novel in the Locke and Key series. Quick reads, but the story is scary and so very interesting, and the artwork is amazing. Absolutely loved it. ( )

I thought this was awful. I liked the first book in the series, but had trouble following the plot here, other than the rather creative notion of a key that can open someone's head and allow access to their memories. Thus 2 stars, instead of 1. Guess I am in the minority here. Doubtful I will continue the series. ( )

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.
