59 posts | 140 read | 30 to read
"New York Times "bestselling writer Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez, the creators behind the acclaimed "Locke & Key: Welcome to Lovecraft," return with the next chapter in the ongoing tale, "Head Games." Following a shocking death that dredges up memories of their father's murder, Kinsey and Tyler Locke are thrown into choppy emotional waters, and turn to their new friend, Zack Wells, for support, little suspecting Zack's dark secret. Meanwhile, six-year-old Bode Locke tries to puzzle out the secret of the head key, and Uncle Duncan is jarred into the past by a disturbingly familiar face. Open your mind -- the head games are just getting started!

ShyBookOwl The tv show is great too! 3d
LokiDokey @ShyBookOwl I definitely want to watch the show after I finish reading all the graphic novels. I've heard good things about it 2d

This artistry is unreal. I love the way emotions and memories are drawn inside each character's mind. It makes me want to peek inside my head 😉

Enchanted_Bibliophile I must say I would also like to see my own head after reading this... I'm wondering if it would be black and white like adult heads should be? 2d

I'm still really enjoying this series. The artwork is beautiful, the characters are compelling, the magic is cool and creepy...I'm a fan. I was actually kind of hoping not to like it so much so I wouldn't feel the need to commit to reading the whole series, but you can't win 'em all. 🙃

It's stupid. I didn't even know him. I think we only ever had one real conversation: "'Does your exuberantly colored hair indicate a theatrical bent?' 'Excuse me?' 'We're casting the winter Shakespeare in a few weeks. There's an opening for a fair Ophelia. If you're interested.'" But I feel like--I feel like we were supposed to be friends. And now he's gone, before I even got to know him...I wish I could forget how to cry.

An excellent 2nd installment in this series. We get some more backstory on the house and the keys, but there are still lots of mysteries and questions to be answered.

Not as gory as Volume 1, but I have a feeling that won‘t last. The mind games are on point. Can‘t wait to find out more about what exactly Dodge/Luke is, the extent of their magic and how they came to be.

This one was much better than the first Volume. A lot less death, but still a lot of messed up stuff!

I‘ve been reading all afternoon, now I‘m taking a break to post all my reads.

A lot of series start to slowly decline after the first volume, but that‘s definitely not happening with Locke & Key. The story is so captivating with every twist and turn. I can‘t wait to see what happens next with the Locke children! #comic #graphicnovel

We‘ve only been dating for a few weeks, but she‘s already lent me the second book in this series of graphic novels. That‘s a good sign, right?

FlowerFairy That‘s practically a proposal 😍 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yes! She‘s trusting you with her books, that‘s big... and if you are enjoying them and can talk about them with her, that‘s even better. 1y
Guildedearlobe @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Exactly! Its interesting because she more of a comic and GN fan and I‘m more of a traditional novel and audiobook fan so we‘re kinda opening each other to new kinds of awesome. 1y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Guildedearlobe That‘s great! It‘s so hard to trust people with things you love...if they dislike things you love it can be tough to get the conversation going. But if you are both open to trying new things, and then at least being able to appreciate them, even if you don‘t love them, that‘s the best of both worlds...someone who can enjoy some quiet reading time and still show you things you hadn‘t tried before. 1y

Just finished Volume 2 of Locke and Key!!! Sooo good!!! All of the rest of them came in at the library today so I‘m sure I will have them finished by the end of this weekend! I can read one volume in one sitting, I love that! It‘s just enough to fill the reading void I have since I have been busy with nursing school and it gives me just the right amount of time for a mind break! All my Locke and Key fans are there only 6 volumes?

KathyWheeler There are 3 others set in that world, but not part of the story you‘re reading - The Guide to Known Keys, Small World, and Grindhouse. The series ends with volume 6. I love it.❤️ 1y

A key that allows you to unlock your head, interesting concept. It really adds to the story though. I can't wait to see what wacky thing the next key does.

GypsyKat This is a great series! 2y
jackilynn @GypsyKat I am really enjoying it so far. I am kind of wishing my library had all of them so I could go get the next one. Instead I had to request it from another library so I have to wait for it to come in. 2y
GypsyKat @jackilynn When I read them I borrowed them all from a friend. They are great to binge read, but it‘s a little heavy, so a bit of time in between volumes would be good too. 2y

I'm a few days late posting this, but I finished volume 2 on Sunday as part of the #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon - I needed a break these last few days after reading 9 graphic novels between Friday and Sunday, but I've found myself constantly thinking about this series and how much I'm enjoying it (Vol 1 is probably the best graphic novel I've ever read!). This gets 4⭐️from me, not quite as good as the 1st but still excellent. On to Vol 3!

JenlovesJT47 @Clwojick yes! The first one is so good! I've been thinking about it all week! They have this on ComiXology unlimited. 2y
Clwojick I was so bummed out when I found out that unlimited is currently only available in the states.... Not over here in Canada. I thought about getting an ip changer just to attempt it, but I‘m terrible at that stuff.... and knowing my luck I‘d probably get a virus. 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Clwojick aw poo 💩that sucks! Do you have Hoopla? They have the first couple of volumes on there. Yeah I definitely wouldn't try the IP changer, I've been having enough problems just downloading stuff from ComiXology onto my kindle for some reason, I have to download it about 3 times before it actually works! 😤 2y

Head games indeed. Back to exploring the house, Bode discovers another key. This one unlocks his head allowing him to add new thoughts, ideas or whatever just as he can remove memories or fears or whatever. He shows his brother & sister & Zack, his brother‘s new friend. No spoilers so I‘ll just say there is more family drama, general mayhem and a little murder is this volume. Again, great storytelling & fantastic art make for an entertaining read.

I couldn‘t give a proper review this as soon as I finished it, like I usually do. All I could say was “trippy.” I guess the book left me near speechless. Imagine a key that will open your head and allow you or someone else to take out or put in thoughts, feelings, and memories. It is truly frightening. Run, do not walk, to your local library or bookstore and start the series. You may be sleeping with the lights on after you read volume two.

ReadingSusan I wish I could read this whole series again for the first time. So good! 2y

Now back to Locke & Key... on the 2nd volume, totally in love with this series already!!🖤🖤

A new key is introduced into this volume and its super creative. Besides being completely invested in the plot, I also want to find out what the other keys do and what is so damn important about the house.

I love the pacing and how each volume has felt satisfying to finish, but also leaves you wanting to know more.

The next maddening step in the house from hell. The new key unlocks people‘s heads. Literally. Open up your skull and root around inside and out. Take away bad memories, input entire books and never have to study again. And while it seems like an ideal ability, what happens when you take away fear, or emotions. Seems like it would be a good idea, but maybe no.

DGRachel Definitely sounds like a "be careful what you wish for" kind of scenario. 3y
