I didn’t care for this story or art style. It didn’t do it for me. I am more of a bright color palette, rainbows and puppies graphic novel gal so it was very hard for me to get into this. Anyone that has a broad taste in genre and art styles will appreciate this story much more than myself. ( )

While I found the first couple episodes of the new adaption on Netflix to be quite ho-hum (haven't finished it yet, so perhaps it gets going eventually), I'm very glad that they got me thinking about the series again after all these years! I re-read most of the series over the last few days and it's really, really great stuff. It's not perfect by any means, but Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez really created a top-notch bit of modern-day fantasy here.

This first volume does a great job of setting the brutal stakes right from the start, this series plays for keeps from the very first page and will continue to do so until the final pages of Locke & Key: Alpha & Omega. The characterization is strong, the action is propulsive, and this first volume sets up future stories very elegantly. Re-reading it I was really impressed by how clearly thought out the forward trajectory (and even more importantly, the convoluted backstory) of the series is right from the start. The concept of the magical keys is so simple, and already so well-executed in this first volume. So much is done with just the Ghost Key in this first story arc that when you get a glimpse of the the other keys at the end of the volume you can't wait to see what Hill and Rodriguez are going to do next... and overall they don't disappoint.

As I mentioned, this series is far from perfect... the writing and dialogue is often unrealistic and silly, and the art (particularly in these early issues) can be stiff and inelegant. But every element of the book gets better and better as the creators refine their craft over the course of the series, and above all the sheer mechanical precision of the plot and structure just blew me away by the time I wrapped up my re-read.

My first full graphic novel on the Kindle and I wasn't crazy about how it worked. But the story was good & I'd be interested in reading more. ( )

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. ( )

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.
