Locke and Key Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez

As far as horror comics I generally like the old Tomb of Dracula and House of Secrets, you know, the old school stuff. But the first volume of Locke and Key was pretty satisfying. Nothing to do with H.P. by the way. It wasn’t horror for horror’s sake, there was a story and a back story and that had a back story. It was deep with layers, or at least the beginning of layers. Comics always throw a bunch of stuff at you and then unravel them as the story progresses. Locke and Key has promise.
