I have been reading Joe Hill’s Locke & Key comic the last few days. I bought the first volume (“Welcome to Lovecraft”) a while ago, but never got around to it. Then someone mentioned it on a podcast I listen to, so I figured I would dig it out.
I liked it well enough that I bought the second volume and read that as well. That said, I’m not sure I will keep going with it. The artwork really bugs me, and the story/plot seem to be trying a bit too hard. I mean, seriously–the town is named “Lovecraft”? Really?
Annoyances with the artwork aside, I think my main problem with Locke & Key is that I am losing interest in the story. It all seems a bit calculated, and I am having a tough time caring about any of the characters.
