Locke and Key #3: Crown of Shadows by Joe Hill

Joe Hill continues his horror tale following the lives of the Locke family in the third edition of Locke and Key:  Crown of Shadows.  After the murder of the father in the first edition and the ultimate end of his murderer in the second, readers may believe that we can finally see some resolution and healing of all those involved.  However, we find the three children fighting against the evil and dead on their own, with only the help of magical keys.

Once again, I have been awed by Hill's creative mind and Rodriguez's brilliant art in Crown of Shadows.  I could not read fast enough, yet found myself flipping back through the pages mesmerized by the story, both in writing and in art.  This story keeps getting better and better and I look forward to getting my hands on the next in the series.

WARNING:  As in the previous editions, this graphic novel is meant for mature eyes only.

Have I convinced you to pick up these books yet or were you already a fan?
