5.0 von 5 Sternen Erste große Aufklärungen 20. Juli 2012

Nachdem Zack am Ende von Band 4 besiegt schien, beginnen die Lockes langsam ihren Tagesablauf zu normalisieren - nicht wissend, dass die Gefahr näher ist, als je zuvor. Und dann finden sie einen weiteren Schlüssel als Tyler durchdreht - einen Schlüssel, mit dem man in der Zeit - innerhalb einer festgelegten Spanne - zurück reisen kann um zu sehen, was damals geschehen ist. Und dabei erfahren sie - und damit auch wir - wie diese seltsamen Schlüssel überhaupt geschaffen wurden und was es mit dem Omega-Schlüssel wirklich auf sich hat. Und darüber hinaus, was ihr Vater ihnen wirklich hinterlassen hat.

Wieder erzählerisch und zeichnerisch gut gelungen, so dass ich froh bin darauf gewartet zu haben - und nun der Fortsetzung, bzw. dem Abschluss entgegen harre.

Locke & Key 5

Familie Locke gehört das Keyhouse, ein Landhaus in Lovecraft, Massachusetts . Der Vater der Bilderbuchfamilie, ein Lehrer, wird gleich im ersten Kapitel in seinem Wohnhaus von einem scheinbar verrückten Schüler umgebracht, weswegen sich die Mutter mit ihren Kindern Tyler, Kinsey und Bode in das Keyhouse zurück zieht.
Nun muß die Familie mit dem Tod des Vaters fertig werden, doch merkwürdige Dinge ereignen sich auf dem Grundstück. So findet der kleinste Sohn Bode eine Tür, die ihn körperlos werden läßt, sobald er sie durchschreitet. Und was lebt dort in dem alten Brunnen, und spricht zu Bode?
Schnell stellte sich heraus, daß ein böses Lebewesen Besitz von verschiedenen, im Haus versteckten Schlüsseln ergreifen will, die alle magische Fähigkeiten haben. Es gibt Schlüssel, mit denen man an jeden Ort der Welt reisen kann, wenn man sich das Ziel nur vorstellen kann, ein anderer verwandelt die Hautfarbe oder das Geschlecht, wieder ein anderer läßt einen förmlich in den Kopf der Menschen sehen, wo man Gedanken und Erinnerungen heraus oder herein nehmen kann. Die Möglichkeiten sind schier unendlich.
Bald stellt sich für den Leser heraus, daß Zack, ein Junge der schon mit dem getöteten Vater in den 80ern befreundet war, für das Unheil verantwortlich ist. Doch die Familie ahnt nichts davon, und freundet sich sogar mit dem Übeltäter an. So werden Geheimnisse mit Zack geteilt, während er die Geschwister in anderen Formen angreift.
Im vorliegenden Band gibt es endlich Antworten auf viele offenen Fragen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I saw Blue, he was glorious 20. Juli 2012
Von Daniel L. Hartman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I had been eagerly awaiting the release of this trade from the moment I put down Locke & Key, Vol. 4: Keys to the Kingdom, and I would like to say it does not disappoint! I would assume that anyone who is on the page for volume five has already read the first four, but if you have not, drop what you are doing immediately and go to a place where trade paper backs are rented or sold and rent or buy them. I'll wait.

Ok, so Clockworks. This is probably my favorite book so far. As opposed to moving the main plot forward in this volume, Joe Hill takes an opportunity to fill us in on all the back story before the final volume (Omega) is released. And when I say "all the back story" I really mean "all" of it. Almost all of the story's long running questions are answered within the pages of Clockworks, and these answers don't disappoint. You get the history of the keys, key house, what's behind the black door, what happened with Rendell and his friends in the drowning caves, Dodge's history, why only children can access the magic of the keys, and so much more!

Because the bulk of the volume deals with the past, Joe Hill has ample opportunities to introduce new characters to the story. I think one of the main things I liked about the book was how relatable and real Rendell and his friends seemed. The characters all have flaws and vulnerabilities that make them read like real people. Because of this, you feel a connection to them and a sense of dread knowing the tragedy that will soon befall them. And you will feel that impending sense of doom for the majority of the volume. It's like watching a horror movie and just wanting to scream at the girl not to run up the stairs. But they can't hear you.

Lastly I'd like to touch on Gabrielle Rodriguez's phenomenal art. Again, anyone familiar with the series already knows how talented he is, but I would be amiss not to at least give him some credit myself. The way he captures characters facial expressions is truly top notch. There are scenes where characters are running the gamut of emotion, and Rodriguez captures it perfectly. He flawless takes Bode from looking like an adorable care free kid, to a totally menacing force. In addition to that, the amount of Easter eggs and small details in the art cannot be overlooked. I found myself going back to panels to triple check to make sure I didn't miss anything!

All in all I'd rate this book 6 stars if given the opportunity. Joe Hill truly does a great job setting up the final volume. So good in fact I'm going to break routine and buy these next six chapters in issue form, I truly cannot wait! Clockworks will more than satisfy any fan of the series, and if you're not a fan I'm not sure why you're still reading this review. Great writing, great dialogue, great art, great story, great construction on the book, honestly I can't say enough. Bring on Omega!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Revelations 18. Juli 2012
Von Cypress Green - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
My eagerly awaited volume arrived yesterday, and, alas! I have already finished! I took my time - but still... Anyway, this is just about my favorite series at this time, and I was both excited and disappointed to see at the back of the volume that there is just one more to come. I can only hope Joe Hill continues to write comics.

Avoiding spoilers (to those who have read the series up to this point, at least), here are my reflections. I could not fall asleep last night and so mulled over the plot points, getting a few insights that demonstrate Mr. Hill's proficiency:

1. The writing remains consistently solid. How I hate when I love a series and, after a months' long wait, get a book that is not up to the level of artwork and writing that I have come to expect! That happened to me with Incorruptible Vol. 6
2. Characterization remains complex and continues to develop. The many characters featured are driven by both base and noble emotions. No one, as in life, is a pure "bad guy." Well, except one...
3. Several events are things I could have never anticipated. I value that in a story.
4. Miranda and Ben Locke are seen in their own time, along with the discovery of the black door.
5. There is the long awaited reveal regarding Rendell and his 5 friends, and what happened in those fateful days. This plot portion was particularly deftly done. My expectation would be that everything - why the black door was opened, how Erin went crazy, how the other friends died, etc. - would have all happened in only one day. No, Mr. Hill is better than that. Much better. The action is more believably drawn out over several days.
6. Five of the friends, plus young Duncan, all share responsibility for the tragic events. The only person who consistently used her head and refused to be driven by her emotions was Erin. Mr. Hill wields irony well, when one considers Erin's fate.

Strangely, I slept poorly and had unsettling dreams featuring aspects of this story last night! This is not like me, so I see this as a testament to the powerful story telling. After all, I read true crime and disaster books, along with crime scene and post-mortem photography books. They rarely affect my sleep. Joe Hill is a master of his trade, and paired with Gabriel Rodriquez's beautiful and expressive illustrations, will hopefully impress you as much as they did me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen IDW brought back the ribbon book mark! 9. August 2012
Von Adam Hasser - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In this volume we finally find out what happened in the past that left Dodge as an evil woman in Well House. It's surprising to see what these kids were like before "it" happened. The back history is so well done that you feel like you already know the characters that are now adults or dead. A lot of questions and motivations are explained in this volume. It's really a great set up for Hill and Rodriguez to be able to hit the ground running in Omega (Volume 6). This series has been mind blowing from the fantastic art team Rodriguez and Fotos (his coloring is top notch) to the incredible story telling of Hill. Not often do you come across a series with such a unique story and characters you care about.

Hill has said Omega is the last volume for Locke kids but not for Locke & Key. He and Rodriguez are doing atleast one more volume called Golden Age and possibly another called Battlefield. At this point I'll be buying any story from this creative team.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Beautiful Example of How Powerful a Tragedy Can Be 1. Januar 2013
Von Eric Christensen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Volume 4 of the Locke and Key series (reviewed elsewhere on this site) ended in such a terrible, shocking way that I couldn't wait to pick up Locke & Key, Volume 5: Clockworks, written by Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez. And it certainly didn't disappoint. I'll try to keep this spoiler-free, so I apologize if some of my comments are vague.

When Volume 4 ended, I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. The thing is, after readers get a glimpse of how Tyler Locke isn't keeping it together as well as we thought, Volume 5 is almost entirely about what has happened before: during the Revolutionary War and the story of Rendell Locke and his friends. Throughout Volumes 1-4, I thought Hill and Rodriguez had seeded enough clues about these two time periods (e.g., the snippets of diaries in the back of the books about the creation of the keys) that I knew enough. Turns out, I knew only the broad strokes. But it's the fine details of the stories that really let this volume soar.

There's a sense of dread about this volume that is unlike any of the others. In fact, I had the hardest time reading this one because I knew it would end very badly. I watched so many characters commit mistake after mistake after mistake. Yet, these mistakes seem inevitable given the characters' motivations. Clockworks is a fantastic example of how powerful a tragedy can be.

And although I've focused the majority of my review on Hill's storytelling, I have to remind everyone how much I'm enjoying Rodriguez's artwork. In particular, the glimpses inside Tyler's and Dodge's heads are fantastic, but for very different reasons. Rodriguez perfectly captures a teenage boy's mind, and his version of Dodge's head is, well, hellish. And I'm so glad that this Volume has several one- and two-page panels. I find myself staring at them for long periods, struck by the tremendous amount of information and beauty they convey.

I'm almost sad to see that the Locke & Key series is ending. But it should be one helluva climax. It's as if all the pieces have been set in place, and the plot is switching to the endgame. Things are about to get bloody, I'm sure. But one way or another, it will be over. Perhaps that's why the next (and final) volume is titled Omega. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I can't wait. This is truly one of the most incredible series I've read, comics or otherwise.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Finally the history behind the Locke house is revealed 22. August 2012
Von K. Eckert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Clockworks is the 5th book in the Locke and Key series. It was an absolutely wonderful installment in this series. We finally start to learn the history of the Locke house and the mysterious keys that it hides.

The book starts by going back in time to when a door of evil was discovered and the first of the Locke Keys was made. We then jump back to the current story where things are dire indeed. The characters have found the key that lets them travel back to the past and there they uncover even more secrets behind the history of the Locke house.

This was an awesome book, we learn the whole history behind the Locke household and the mysterious Keys. Many interesting rules about the keys are revealed. This book answers a lot of questions for readers and also brings the story to a peak as things become more dire than ever. I really don't want to say much more than that for fear of spoilers.

As with previous books this book is for adults only; there is a lot of blood and violence in these books as well as other disturbing things. This whole series has been more horror with strong paranormal/fantasy elements.

The characters and plot are both incredibly well done, very gripping, and make the book hard to put down. The illustration is absolutely detailed and beautiful. It is easy to read the characters' emotions and easy to follow what is going on.

I personally really enjoyed the way the book went back into history, but those who only enjoy modern horror may not be happy that so much of this book takes place in the past.

Overall I absolutely loved this installment of the Locke and Key series. We learn so much about the history of the Locke house and many of the secrets behind the Keys are revealed. I can't wait to see what the final book in this series will hold...will the Locke children be able to stop the evil that lurks in their house? Highly recommended for fans of horror-fantasy.
