As a child, I used to read lots of comics. Now in my 30s, I'm rediscovering them, and Locke & Key is amazing! I love Stephen King, and Locke & Key is partly made by his son. I have recently bought the last one, but I haven't read it yet, as I'm afraid I won't be able to put it down until I finish it, and it'll be gone too quickly!

I bought this with others in the series as a present and they were read in no time at all.

Not a graphic novel fan myself but found the artwork to be brilliant and the storylines engaging, I may just be converted to this type of literature.

Okay, so I've read Locke and Key parts 3 and 4 back to back tonight and I'm forcing myself not to read 5 until at least tomorrow just so I can look forward to it because nothing else is as good.

As I said in my review of part 3, Locke and Key is the hardest thing ever to review as you just don't want to give any spoilers. All I'll say it's the story never slows up it's pace, the artwork is outstanding as usual, there is some great ideas in it, we get to see more new keys and the end of this one took an interesting twist I thought.

I know there is no way that you're reading this not having read the first three so this review is for the fans. If however you are reading this by chance and haven't read the last three then I strongly advise you to start at the beginning. It's not the kind of thing you can pick up half way through. You'll just have missed too much.

As amazing as ever. I'm kind of sad that I'll read part 5 tomorrow as part 6 isn't out yet. An easy 5 stars.

The Best Yet. Absolutely Stunning. 4 Dec 2012
By Eric Christensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For four volumes now, Locke & Key has repeatedly demonstrated why it should be at the top of your "to read" list. Not "comics to read," but "works of fiction to read." It is so well written and beautifully illustrated that it will go toe to toe with anything else on your list.

After I read Locke and Key, Volume 3: Crown of Shadows (reviewed elsewhere on this site), I didn't quite know what to expect from Locke and Key, Volume 4: Keys to the Kingdom, written by Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez. When I first flipped through the book, I realized more keys were introduced in this volume than in previous ones, and the artwork had a different feel (more on that later). Volume 3 had a creepy, quiet, sad vibe to it. Turns out that was the calm before the storm because Volume 4 is packed with surprises, charm, violence, and the best ending to date.

Volume 4 begins with a pastiche to Calvin and Hobbes. I was a little surprised by this because it's such a different style than what Rodriguez does throughout Locke & Key. But it makes perfect sense, when you see how it is used (and look for a cameo by "Yukon Ho!"). Volume 4 also contains several wordless panels and pages that let Rodriguez's talent shine. I really can't say enough about the artwork in this series. It's beautiful, funny, gory, sexy, spooky, and visceral. Every panel is a pleasure.

And Joe Hill's writing reveals how the Locke kids are coming to terms with their new life and their struggles. Bode is making friends, despite seeming to prefer staying inside his head. He's also learning the severe consequences of fighting the ghosts of Keyhouse Manor. Kinsey is realizing that taking away her fears and sadness might not have been the smartest idea. And poor Tyler learns that becoming an adult can mean getting hurt again and again. But that gives him time to figure out a few things about who is friends really are.

My only complaint is that Nina Locke makes only one appearance in the volume. However, it's a spark of hope amidst the sadness and violence of the rest of the volume. And it reinforces the idea that this is really the story of the Locke kids.

But that's a tiny complaint. And it's more than made up for with the volume's ending. I don't want to spoil it, but man, oh man. Here's my impression of the last few pages: Oh no. Oh no! OH NO! Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse, they get MUCH worse. I can't get my hands on Volume 5 soon enough.

Hill and - specially - Rodriguez delivered again. Illustrations are superb as ever and I really like the Bill Watterson's style chapter one.
story and art 27 Mar 2014

Story and art together. Across volumes the story has a terrific arc; the mini-arcs within volumes are compelling as well. The story is so good, one almost wants to just read the words and ignore the pictures. Do not do this! The artwork is top-notch.

An incredibily sad, beautifully illustrated, amazingly written story.
I don't have other words to describe it. A graphic novel not to miss.
