-In case my past reviews didn't praise him enough, let me reiterate that Gabriel Rodriguez is a master storyteller. As such, Hill once again illustrates complete faith in Rodriguez's ability to show the reader everything they need in order to piece the story together.- -- IGN

Volume 3 faultless continues Hill's story and Rodriguez' amazing complimentary artwork about the Locke family, and the happenings around the Keyhouse. I'm not going to spoil it all for you - if you've got to volume 3, I'm guessing you already know what all this is about - suffice to say - the story is still flawless quality.
The hardcover edition of this is again beautiful, with the stock picture not doing it the justice it deserves.
There are again the sketches of parts of the Keyhouse, and another great introduction, this time from Brian Vaughan. The hardcover price is only £1 or so more expensive than the paperback, so for an edition that you're going to want to read repeatedly (trust me on this) treat yourself to something aesthetically beautiful *and* more robust, as the hardcover edition undoubtedly is.
I can't wait for my volume 4 to arrive. If you do like Locke and Key and you haven't already tried CHEW Omnivore Edition Volume 1 HC then it's well worth a purchase.
What I will say is it's probably the best comic/graphic novel I have ever had the fortune to read. Joe Hill's storyline is simply outstanding and Gabriel Rodriguez's artwork matches it in every way. I would honestly say they were a perfect match and I only hope they do more stuff together as well as keep Locke and Key going.
If your reading this for some reason but haven't read the first two then please do It's not the type of thing you can pick up half way through and you will miss out on so much. Start at the beginning. If you've made it this far I'd be surprised if anyone ever reads this review as it's just too good to care about opinions lol. I just wanted to give it the stars it deserves. An easy 5.
Particularly interesting is a story that is better and better and like nothing that I ever read.
