Artwork is outstanding, a good artist enhances a story. The writer understands that team work is what makes a great graphic novel stand out from the crowd and this is obviously a great team effort.
Buy it, read it and enjoy it.
Dodge has become one of my favourite characters. In Head Games, we get a bit more insight into his background. We see what his connection is with the Locke family, and with Ellie, but at the same time Dodge remains very mysterious. I'm very intrigued by him, and he is my favourite character of the Locke & Key series because a) he is creepy and vile and a good villain, and b) he is so damn interesting. I love a good backstory for a villain, and often they are underdeveloped in favour of the heroes of the story. But Dodge's story is great so far, and I can't wait to see more of him.
Due to the focus on Dodge and Ellie, Head Games spends a little less time on the Locke family than Welcome to Lovecraft did. Kinsey was the most heavily featured family member in this instalment, and I really enjoyed that. You get to see how she is handling - or, rather, not handling - the tragedy that caused her to move to Lovecraft in the first place, and you also see her start to form ties with other characters. I like that she is not immune to the crap that happened to her, and the stuff that is still going on in her life. I also loved the storyline of how she was trying to change herself. At this point in time she feels weak and vulnerable, and it willing to take somewhat drastic measures to change that.Read more ›
I was totally hooked after part 1 and hoped it wouldn't lose pace and I wasn't disappointed. We obviously were left hanging at the end of 1 when the echo in the well house escaped and became a friend of the Locke kids. The story picks up right where we left off and is just as gripping as the first one.
We find out a little more about the keys and a little background but Hill doesn't give away too much. I'm not sure how long this story will run for but I know I will be reading it till the end.
I should be getting part 3 back from my friend soon and I have 4 and 5 on order too. So far one of the best series of graphic novels I have read.
These were not what i was expecting! But I am very thankful it's what I chose!
The story progresses at a great pace, the characters are well written and the illustrations are incredible!
To anyone who's at a loss on what to get next, give it a try!
Once you start from #1 you won't be able to stop!

Awesome if you're into Locke And Key. If you're more into things like trains or the Daily Mail, I wouldn't reccomend it.Published 20 months ago by Jon Davies
