-WHAT WAS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS ISSUE OF LOCKE & KEY?

First thing that caught my attention was that is was being told via storytelling gimmick, in this case the days of a single month.  But upon reading (and re-reading), the really special thing was that it used that gimmick to tell more story in a strong way.  Most of the book is centered around a pair of relationships building up and breaking down, but breaking up the tension are days where we see single panels of grand, life-or-death adventures that are peppered through the month.  Seeing a hurtful comment between family members, and then turning the page to a panel of menacing squirrels is something that, in the hands of lesser artists, would have come off as stupid and forced.  But that’s what makes Locke & Key special;  it can handle the balancing act and make it look easy.  Brilliant work, and one of the best single issues of the year.
