The dead plot against the living, the darkness closes in on Keyhouse, and a woman is shattered beyond repair, in the third storyline of the Eisner-nominated series, Locke & Key! Dodge continues his relentless quest to find the key to the black door, and raises an army of shadows to wipe out anyone who might get in his way. Surrounded and outnumbered, the Locke children find themselves fighting a desperate battle, all alone, in a world where the night itself has become their enemy. 

Every volume I get more and more engrossed.  This story is just sucking me right in at every turn.

Focused more on the mother this time we get a glimpse at how completely fucked up she is.  She's barely trying to keep up appearances depending more and more on Tyler and Kinsey to take care of Bode and keep their shit together despite them having lived through insanity as well.

There are more keys....and endless amount of keys and it's amazingly fun to discover what they do and how they'll be used.

The art is just amazing.  The beginning scenes with the ghosts, I just love them.  It gets me more stoked to read the book.  Usually, if I love the art the story takes second place and vice versa, but with Locke & Key I love the art as much as I love the story.  It's just some really good stuff.
