Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week.

Locke and Key

Recommended Posts

I just finished this series after I got the collection for Christmas and absolutely loved them. I never thought I'd be a fan of Lovcraftian horror, but Locke and Key changed my mind. I actually went to Barnes & Noble after I finished the series to pick up a collection of H.P. Lovecraft's stories. 

 

No one I know has read them, and I don't know too many people who are into that style of story so I thought I'd reach out here and see if anyone had read them and loved them as much as me!

 

I also thought I'd ask if anyone knew of any other Graphic Novels that follow the same grim tone as these did. Thanks in advance!

If you take a look at my thread about graphic novels, I loved this series too! I've tried a few different styles of graphic novel, and my other favourite is the Sandman series.

It's a fantastic series, I agree!

 

And you know what, it isn't over yet.  Joe Hill is working on a new series in the Locke & Key universe.  A single issue comic is already out:  Locke & Key: Small World.  It features a new family of characters who live in the house.  It's pretty good.  I imagine as further issues appear that there'll be a trade paperback at some point.

No way! that's great news. I'll have to look into that.

I haven't had a chance to look into Sandman yet, but I hear from many sources it's amazing. I'll take a look at your thread here soon!
