Tagged by @Ast_Arslan for my favourite graphic novel, mines is Locke & Key; the artwork and storyline are absolutely brilliant! 👌

If you read graphic novels, feel free to play along.
I'd like to see what your favourite is because I'm always looking for new ones to read in between books. 💫

MrT Have you seen the series on Netflix? Not a bad adaptation. 9mo

booksellerofyourdiscontent I love Joe Hill and Locke and Key is such a great series! I was waiting for Sandman to arrive at my library and I read this while I was waiting. 9mo
Mavey The story is so great! Maybe the book is better than the adaptation(as is mostly the case) but the Netflix show seemed quite good. Could you please tag it under ComicComfort so that more Littens could access it?Thanks a lot for sharing!💕 9mo
Emmybird01 I loved this one! 9mo
TheNeverendingTBR @MrT Thanks Phil, this sounds awesome! 9mo
TheNeverendingTBR @Twainy The slipcase set? It's very nice, I just bought them individually; it is pretty pricey! 😖 9mo

I finished this on my lunch break and it was a lot darker than the first few episodes of the show that I watched. Its not really what I was in the mood for, but I might revisit the series when dark and violent is called for...

Daisey I have to be in the right mood for this series as well. It‘s definitely not an anytime read for me. 9mo

I watched the Netflix series before and thought I might like the graphic novel too. Felt pretty meh about the first volume of the original comic series, though, and there are so many additional volumes that I doubt I will try to continue for resolution of the series. At least the haunted house story fits with the #TeamHarkness theme.

I completed #BookishBingo by reading a mystery novel that follows a lot of different characters (to the point where I lost track of a few a few times 😅) so I count it as a multiple POV book!

Also completed Locke & Key, Volume 1 because I saw the trailer for the TV show and was completely freaked tf out, so I needed to read the book to see if I could stand watching it... maybe if I finish the books I'll be able to watch the show 🙈

Was deciding between this show or another to start on Netflix. I went with the other and then found out this was a graphic novel series. It was meant to be that I read them first. I am also currently reading NOS4A2 by Joe Hill so I can start that show too.

TheNeverendingTBR NOS4R2 and Locke & Key are so damn good! 💫 1y

A great short story during the Golden Age at Keyhouse. Two boys spend time together exploring and having a fun summer day, and they are accompanied by their dog, whom they have turned into a human using the Animal Key.

I probably would have enjoyed this more if I hadn‘t already watched the first season on Netflix. This is one case where I think the TV adaptation might have surpassed the source material. A lot of the changes for the TV version feel like they fleshed out these characters so much better. #graphicnovel

CollapsingLibrary I didn‘t realize this was a graphic novel, though the shows been sitting on my Netflix list for a week now. I‘ve enjoyed a lot of the adaption Netflix has done so that makes me extra excited! 2y
Kenyazero Good to know. I‘ll read the comic first, then, because it has been on my list for far longer than the series. The same happened for Umbrella Academy, where the characters hardly fleshed out in the comic compared to the show. 2y

I‘ve been reading Locke & Key Vol 1 today courtesy of @Eyelit and enjoying it so far.

I did a grocery run this morning which wasn‘t as bad as I expected, though I couldn‘t get any fresh veg. Then had a walk with a friend (at a safe distance😁) on a quiet trail.

Igor has decided he likes to perch on the new bed frame and watch birds in the back yard.

Sending lots of love out to you all in Litsyland. 💗💓💗💓

I never really *need* a reason to reread these comics, but the Netflix series inspired me to. I think the show is really well done as far as adaptations go and I enjoyed it. But there‘s something about the original that is much more impactful. The art makes the violence more haunting & the storytelling more suspenseful. I love how there are tributes to other comics throughout, and how creative the structure is. I‘m always happy to revisit Keyhouse

Since a lot of reviews mention gore and violence, I wasn‘t sure if I would like this. Turns out, it really pulled me in! The set up, and layering of the story, with shifts in time between now and various key moments in the not too distant past, worked really well.

I can‘t wait to delve into volume 2 to learn more about the mystery surrounding the house and its keys.

Maybe reading this right before bed wasn't my smartest move. Creepy old house, a murder, with ghosts and other ethereal beings. Perfect dreamtime fodder right? I liked it and will read more of the series. Apparently I'm in a graphic novel phase which isn't a bad thing. Joe Hill rarely disappoints.

This series is the result of Stephen King's son rummaging through his father's garbage for scraps of discarded ideas. Total, utter nonsensical trash. The ideas presented in just a handful of issues are: serial killer, ghost kid, trapped in painting lady, Samara from The Ring, haunted house with magical keys. The lack of focus on any one of these ideas shows Hill's utter lack of understanding of horror, and more offensively, story-telling.
