Locke & Key, Vol. 2: Head Games

Locke & Key, Vol. 2: Head Games - Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodríguez I read vol 1 and 2 in a row. I got so hooked I couldn't stop. It got to the point I've read it in the car while my grandmother was driving - at night. She didn't let me use the car's light, so I used my phone's - I think that added a bit to the ambiance. I got some chills. More than chills, though, what I got was a good horror/mystery/supernatural story that promises to keep being entertaining. I want more. This is yet another one of those series that you just gotta have on your shelf after you finish reading them: the drawings are amazing, the story is rich and there are some funny parts, too (if you're into dark humor, you'll love it). It also poses some philosophical questions - and it does so without sounding snobby or pretentious - What would you do without your fears and doubts? How would you depict the insides of your head? - What if you could die any time you want? are just some of 'em.TL;DR: I thoroughly recommend these books. Joe Hill's storytelling kicks ass and Gabriel Rodriguez's artwork finishes the job, leaving us K.O.
