My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m making my way through the Locke & Key series as it draws to a close. I love the intricate entanglement of words and artwork. One without the other would tell less than half the story. On to volume 3, already downloaded to my Comixology app…

Below is a slideshow of a few more of the pictures I snapped.
