I really enjoyed the third installment of Locke & Key. The kids are toughening up and fighting back, against both the paranormal and an alcoholic mother. We learn about a couple new keys with interesting powers and there is a super epic battle scene in the middle of the volume. The art was really top notch.
The mother is really getting annoying. I understand life has kicked her in the proverbial balls but it’s done the same to her kids and yet they’re the ones being adults and taking proper care of their youngest brother. At this point, if she was killed off, I think life would be easier for the kids. They could continue the battle against evil without any distractions.

I really need to get into this.
It’s deliciously dark fun.
Love the review! ❤ This volume was one of my favorites in the series, and you're absolutely right, that battle scene was amazing! I loved it. Glad you enjoyed it, too. 😀
Thanks! It was really fun. I’ve officially finished my pile of graphic novels you loaned me!
Woohoo! Glad you made it through them. I’ll have a new pile for you this weekend! 😀
Yaaaaay!! Get my junkie fix. 😉
Cool – I really enjoyed this series, but haven’t read them for ages! I think I’ll have to get my arse in gear and go through them again… Have you read ‘Injection’ by Image comics?
I have not but I just looked it up on Goodreads and it sounds interesting. I take it, it’s good?
Well, I really liked Locke & Key, but I absolutely loved Injection… At the risk of making some sweeping assumptions about your taste, I think you’ll probably enjoy it 🙂
Haha. I’ll always at least look at suggestions. I think it sounds like it’s worth a try.
Cool – will be interested to hear your thoughts!
I still need to read the second. I should pick that up soon. The first was so good.
The second is a little less good than 1 & 3 but still enjoyable. But you definitely need to read it to know what’s going on.
