Locke and Key
Welcome to the only comic book that’s every really and truly scared the crap out of me. After a gruesome tragedy a family moves to their ancestral home, a huge house in Lovecraft, Massachusetts. The three kids begin to discover keys that open a variety of doors in the house that do things like switch your gender, turn you into a ghost, an animal or a giant. Mayhem ensues. This was recommended to me over and over and each time I was like “Magic keys and doors? No thanks.” But I was so wrong. I read the first story arc very late one night and almost had to throw the book across the room when it completely creeped me the hell out. I’ve been hooked ever since and now as the story winds down the mystery behind the keys is being explained. Unlike, say, Lost, where the resolution made you feel like you’d wasted years of your life trying to figure out the polar bears, the answers in Locke and Key are solid. It also features one of the most gorgeous and heartbreaking single issues from last year which will change the way that you look at the moon.
