Living in the Premise – Re-reading Locke and Key: Keys to the Kingdom

Re-reads

For a beat or two, Keys to the Kingdom might convince readers that Locke and Key is becoming a typical, ongoing comic series. By which I mean, the story could continue indefinitely, allowing Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodriguez, and the Locke children to live in the book’s premise for as long as sales or Hill’s interest allowed.

But believing anything about Locke and Key is typical would be a mistake.

Development and Assertion – Re-reading Locke & Key Vol. 3: Crown of Shadows

Re-reads

For this year’s Locke and Key re-read, I decided to jump into Vol. 3, Crown of Shadows, without re-reading Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. I expected to spend some time remembering details and getting back up to speed, but was instead surprised by how effortlessly I fell back into the story of the Locke family and the horrible, magical world that surrounds them.
