locke & key: welcome to lovecraft

Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them, and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all!

I loved this book.

One terrible day Tyler Locke's family's world is torn apart and they move from the West Coast to the small island where his father's family house resides.  When his little brother Bode starts talking about doors that can turn you into ghosts and how he made his echo come alive Tyler isn't sure if his little brother is cracking under all the stress or if there's maybe some truth to what he's saying.  But when they finally discover what Bode's talking about it might just be too late.

There's just something about color graphic novels that I adore, but this one had so much more.  It was like a good Dean Koontz novel.  A little gory, a little scary, a little sad and a whole lot crazy.  I thought it was insanely fun.  I surprisingly loved all the characters.  Usually there's a couple I don't care for too much, but I wanted to know ALL OF THEM.

Seriously, it was amazeballs.
