Apr 23, Anne rated it it was amazing Shelves: horror , graphic-novels , read-in , kindle , read-in , read-in , paranormal , read-in This is still one of my all-time favorite graphic novels and if you haven't read it yet, I honestly can't recommend it enough.
Can't believe how much I'd forgotten! The gist is that the violent murder of their father by two teens sends the three children I'm re-reading the books because we just watched the Netflix show and it made me think about how much I loved this story. The gist is that the violent murder of their father by two teens sends the three children and their mother to their dad's ancestral home. Layer by layer the story of why their father was killed, what happened to them during the time the killers were in their house, and how the family is coping, starts coming together to paint a heart-wrenching tale.
Then add a layer of mystery to the house itself, with its strange and magical keys that keep popping up, and you've got something amazing to read. Because there's a secret history to everything their father had long ago forgotten about the house, and the youngest child, Bode, is starting to discover it all over again. And fuck! It's creepy as hell! It's just one of the better-written stories, horror or otherwise, out there. Highly recommended! For some odd reason, I only gave this 4 stars the first time around.
Not sure what I was thinking? This was fantastic! All 5 stars! Have you read this series yet? If not, DO IT! The dialogue was amazing, and the characters felt quite real, especially for a graphic novel.
What seems to be a story about a family dealing with a terrible tragedy, slowly unfolds into something more. The artwork perfectly complements the creeptastic storyline in this. What else can I say? The entire thing was very well done, and I've heard from several sources that it only gets better from here on out.

Here's another intelligent, strongly written story with which to pummel the perceptions of the elitist book snobbers , who sneer and snide at the graphic novel medium.
I was excited to read this because it was written by Joe Hill, the talented offspring of a certain literary King who shall remain nameless Stephen. So, I expected to enjoy this. This was dance. Locke and Key is horror done by two artists who knew exactly what they wanted to accomplish This is terror created through atmosphere, suspense and narrative, without simply resorting to the shock value of extreme, over-the-top gore, something that really spotlights lazy, ineffective writing when used in lesser works Crossed, volume 2: Family values anyone.
This graphic novel is creepy and unsettling in the way the best horror is. The story uses common, relatable life experiences e. Locke and shatter the lives of his wife and their three children, Ty, Kinsey and Bode. In the aftermath, the four travel to the town of Lovecraft, Massachusetts, to live at Key House, the families ancestral home.
Each is broken in their own way, one by suffocating guilt, one by post traumatic shock, one by heartache and loneliness, and one by the loss of dad. Unfortunately, the pain is not over.
Upon moving into Key House, things immediately take a turn for the weird. To make matters much, much worse, it also turns out that the murder of Mr. Locke was not random at all, and the family will find itself beset by nightmares both human and not human while they try and exorcise their grief and reassemble some semblance of a life. One of my favorite of these moments is when Bode, testing out one of the houses many unusual attributes, secretly visits his sister as she relives the day their father died.
It is sad and moving, but ends comically in a perfect older sister, younger brother moment. It's perfect. These quiet moments of reflection are necessary to heighten the emotional investment of the reader, and make the more aggressive events much scarier.
So, add this series to the ever growing pile of recent graphic novels that have really raised the bar. Buy it View all 45 comments. I think most of my friends on Goodreads have either shelved this book to read or have read it. I had to jump on that bandwagon but I was a bit scared. You see most of them have loved it.
Except Erica But she is a hater rebel. I actually liked this one! It starts off all violent and shit. This guy is killed by a teenage nut job and the nut job is going for his family also, but they get away from him and he en I think most of my friends on Goodreads have either shelved this book to read or have read it.
This guy is killed by a teenage nut job and the nut job is going for his family also, but they get away from him and he ends up in juvenile prison. The family moves across the country to the Lovecraft mansion. They maybe should have stayed at the Hotel 6. This place is kinda wonky.
You have lots of rooms that need certain keys.

Look Inside. Now a Netflix original series! Their mother, Nina, is too trapped in her grief—and a wine bottle—to notice that all in Keyhouse is not what it seems: too many locked doors, too many unanswered questions. But not youngest son Bode, who quickly finds a new friend living in an empty well and a new toy, a key, that offers hours of spirited entertainment. But again, all at Keyhouse is not what it seems, and not all doors are meant to be opened. Soon, horrors old and new, real and imagined, will come ravening after the Lockes and the secrets their family holds.

Сьюзан от изумления застыла с открытым ртом. Она посмотрела на часы, потом на Стратмора. - Все еще не взломан. Через пятнадцать с лишним часов. Стратмор подался вперед и повернул к Сьюзан монитор компьютера. На черном поле светилось небольшое желтое окно, на котором виднелись две строчки: ВРЕМЯ ПОИСКА: 15:09:33 ИСКОМЫЙ ШИФР: Сьюзан недоуменно смотрела на экран. Получалось, что ТРАНСТЕКСТ трудится над шифром больше пятнадцати часов.
Верно. Но я хочу иметь копию. Я хочу открыть этот проклятый файл и ознакомиться с созданной Танкадо программой. Сьюзан была столь же любопытна, как и ее шеф, но чутье подсказывало ей, что расшифровка алгоритма Цифровой крепости неразумна, какой бы интерес это ни представляло. В данный момент эта чертова программа надежно зашифрована и абсолютно безопасна. Но как только шифр будет взломан… - Коммандер, а не лучше ли будет… - Мне нужен ключ! - отрезал .
Там темно как в преисподней! - закричала. Джабба вздохнул и положил фонарик рядом с. - Мидж, во-первых, там есть резервное электроснабжение.
Беккер отлично говорил по-французски, тем не менее обратился к этому человеку на языке, который тот, как он надеялся, должен был знать хуже. Убедить абсолютно незнакомого человека отдать вам золотое кольцо скорее всего будет весьма непросто, поэтому Беккер хотел заручиться хотя бы одним преимуществом. Пока старик собирался с мыслями, Беккер не произнес ни слова. Тот огляделся вокруг, указательным пальцем разгладил усы и наконец заговорил: - Что вам нужно? - Он произносил английские слова немного в нос. - Сэр, - начал Беккер чуть громче, словно обращаясь к глуховатому человеку, - я хотел бы задать вам несколько вопросов.
Единственный луч надежды во всей этой печальной истории - то, что Танкадо путешествовал. Есть шанс, что его партнер пока ничего не знает. Испанские власти обещали придержать информацию - столько, сколько смогут.
Здравствуйте, Это Сьюзан Флетчер. Извините, меня нет дома, но если вы оставите свое сообщение… Беккер выслушал все до конца. Где же .
