    • Out of the three volumes this is probably the best one yet The plot just keeps getting better I ve finally learned to truly appreciate the different powers of the keys The two latest keys were nothing but fantastic I honestly want all of them for myself Especially the key with the head thing I don t want to spoil anything, so I m not going to talk about the powers any.The characters got even better now I m liking everyone but the villain, Luke He s an annoying piece of shit to be honest The moth [...]

    • This is easily my favorite volume so far The comedy s on point The artwork is the best it s been The ending had me on the verge of tears The action was gnarly and super fun And the shadow monsters were fuckin epic This is the moment I fell in love with this series Dig it.


    • Three volumes in and Locke Key s story remains largely unchanged The Locke kids Tyler, Kinsey and Bode continue to grieve over their murdered father, their mother s still drinking heavily, and Zack Wells Dodge whatever its name is in this book, is doing dastardly things This time he s looking for the black key to do something, probably evil Kinsey goes to a cave, following her dad s footsteps as a teen, and magic keys appear in the Lockes cartoonishly gothic mansion, Keyhouse Despite stretchin [...]


    • 9 10 The Dreams and Ideas of Free Men are as an Army of Shadows, and as impossible to strike down So says Colonel Adam Crais, a hero of the American Revolution whose statue guards the grounds of the school where the Locke kids go in Lovecraft, Massachussets The quote is well chosen to define the turning moment in the comic book series written by Joe Hill and brilliantly illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez Because in this third album, the Locke kids start to fight back against their hidden enemy who [...]


    • I think this may have been my favorite Locke Key volume so far There s been such a solid well of character development built up in the last two volumes that this one was capable of playing off of nonstop action without feeling rushed or lacking As usual, the artwork is beautiful and the writing is Joe s typical bizarre, creepy, delightful style.In volume 3, Dodge is determined to find the Omega Key, and raises an army of shadows to fight the poor Bode children, who are realizing that the stakes [...]



    • Man oh man, is this series fantastic Jamal and Scot are hilarious I want to be friends with these two The family is really falling apart, mainly due to Mama Locke falling into alcoholism But with here out of the way, we get this fantastic arc with the Locke kids battling the crown of shadows Rodriguez shows just how talented he is with all these diverse shadow creatures He s created quite a menagerie Then when Tyler breaks out the giant key, I was amazed at those full page panels That was quite [...]


    • This series gets better and better 3 keys have been discovered in this book alone The whole family is in on the finding of them now They still seem to be losing against the villain who seems to be winning This book is so creative and unexpected I have no clue where its going and I am happy to ride with them where ever.The art is continued and does a great job They have the characters down I am excited to see what is going to happen next I like IDW publishing, at least this book I want to check [...]


    • I admit that I was a little concerned that I might have lost the thread of this story and that just picking up with Volume 3 might be a bad decision It s been a year and a half since I read Welcome to Lovecraft and Head Games back to back, after all But, while it certainly wouldn t have been a sacrifice or anything to re read Volumes 1 2, it wasn t necessary in the end True, this volume picks up right where the last one left off, but there s enough history in the story and the context to make it [...]


    • Prosto obo avam ovaj serijalDrago mi je to je Nina dobila malo vi e prostora Moj naklon i D ou Hilu za maestralnu pri u i izuzetne ideje i Gabrijelu Rodrigezu za fenomenalne crte e


    • And so its about time I return to the Locke family and especially the children and see what is going on in Lovecraft county.I read the first two volumes to this amazing series some time ago and for various reasons including the fact lots of other books turned up to distract me I never got to complete the series Well here I am ready to face the challenge the problem is that what can you say when obviously this is the mid point in an on going series with a tightly written storyline.Dilemas aside [...]


    • Locke Key has been nothing but spectacular since it s inception Hill and Rodriguez, despite crafting a series about keys that literally do the impossible, have created these very relatable characters that are both memorable and seemingly real You hurt when they hurt, cheer when they overcome and anticipate what happens next when the story ends These are all feelings that an author wants to pull from their audience and Hill does it so well that it s hard to believe that he s still so young in his [...]


    • I wish I could give this volume 10 stars because it deserves so much than just 5 A true work of art, in story and in visuals Someone give me the brain key so I can forget this volume then reread it then forget it and reread it again, over and over and over like I m reading it for the first time because that s how amazing it was.




    • Dosta mra niji dio doslovno Scena sa krunom senki, i same scene koje su se tu de avale su toliko a ave bile, ali opet tako dobre I Nina dobija vi e prostora i imamo ve i uvid u njenu psihu i fkt je meni nje ao Ne opravam njene postupke, ali mi je ba ao Haj da vidimo ta je Hill dalje smislio.4.5


    • Huh, no spoilers in my old review, yay And it still stands at 30, still afraid of the dark and still plagued with night terrors Go me.6 10 6 13 2014Oh what to say about Volume 3 CROWN OF SHADOWS Was I expecting phenomenal storytelling by Joe Hill Absolutely Was I expecting Gabriel Rodriguez to bring the words to life in a visual array of haunting beauty You betcha And, I was no disappointed, at all.The world evolves bringing the readers a new key that brings the horrors of shadows to life Confe [...]


    • 6 stars Oh my goodness This series just keeps getting better and better every time I pick up a new volume on Joe Hill s fantastic Locke and Key series In the third volume Crown of Shadows, we are introduced to the mysterious and haunting adventures of the Locke kids and how well they are trying to get on after the death of their father Locke and Key Crown of Shadows is definitely a brilliant follow up to the second volume Head Games that fans of the Locke and Key series will love Now that Kinse [...]


    • The third volume of this series becomes very dark, with the progressing decline into alcoholic anarchy of the mother and literally with an attack from the shadows The enemy is strong and is fighting tough There are two key lock systems explored which have been hinted at in previous volumes.Once again Bode, the 8 year old boy, is a highlight with his verve for exploration and his wide eyed enthusiasm making me smile.


    • melissa413readsalotThis story just gets better and better Accept the Locke kids poor mom is just going downhill pretty bad I loved how they showed all of the keys at the end and tells about them And as always, the graphics are just awesome I loved Jamal and Scot, they were hilarious On to the nexton


    • This series continues to be awesome It is dark and funny, with superb artwork and great character development And what an ending Must get on to volume 4 straight away


    • 4.25 5 starsThis one is my favorite from the series so far Less gore plot Also art was just outstanding in this one I like how they keep dipping into the past, revealing things slowly Also, it seems that all of the Locke family is finally losing their marbles Can t wait to see where the 4th book takes me.My WEBSITEMy INSTAGRAMMy WORDPRESS BLOG


    • Another entertaining instalment, loved the new keys, especially the Shadow key and Zack Dodge using it to overpower Tyler and co so he could find the key to the Black Door Bode was the highlight as usual, he was just so likeable Really looking forward to the next volume.




    • Your dad got shot in the face this summer and I have apparently forgotten how to juggle Fantastic volume Every time I open up the next book in this series I am so stoked to see what if any new keys will be discovered I wasn t a big fan of the second chapter in this book all that cave stuff just kinda bored me, I know it was mostly to show Kinsey cementing her friendships with those two uncool dudesbut still Meh.The rest though Bangin Spirit battles, shadowy invasions, giants, and the Locke mom g [...]
