A new graphic novel series, Locke and Key tells the story of three siblings who move into a house plagued by an elaborate secret door that only opens under the right key. Stranger things happen around each of them. Find out how it all unfolds in this exciting graphic novel series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez.” I wanted to do something old-fashioned, where you had this big, fat doorstop of a book that you could really dive into and get lost in,” Hill says about the series. “It’s kind of the opposite of my novels. I actually wrote it to take a break from writing novels.”
What is the plot of the story ?
Locke and Key tells the tale of the Locke family — Tyler, Kinsey and Bode — who have recently lost their dad in a tragic accident. The family moves in to their old family estate on Lovecraft Island and discover an ominous door in the basement. A little investigation reveals that each of the Locke children has a “key” — an ability to open doors to magical worlds inside the house. Bode is a ghost boy who can pass through walls, Tyler has a “mind-key” that lets him read minds and Kinsey can tell when people are about to die.
Who is in the cast ? What role did each character portray ?
The cast include Emilia Jones , Connor Jessup , Darby Stanchfield , Willa Holland , Amy Acker , Sean Astin , Grace Park , Elizabeth Reaser and Chris Parnell . The main focus of the series is on Locke’s Key, Kinsey. She has an ability to open doors to alternate universes, which soon turn out to be portals into other worlds. Each world demonstrates the impact of an object that they only have seen, but also had a deep attachment to. For example, the Key to “Augustus”, the book written by Bode’s favourite author. These keys are powerful and can be used by anyone who happens to find them, though only Locke children can pass through the doors into these worlds.
What are the difficulties they face in the series ?
The Locke family must figure out how to deal with the contradictory threats of a monster, a ghost and a murderer. The series also deals with some very interesting social issues, such as gun control in America, privacy and the ownership of things. It shows what it’s like to be a teenager, but also how much one can change under pressure. It also raises questions about the long-term effects of grief on a person’s psyche. These are some of the many issues explored in the series. The series explores the experience of being a teenager. Locke is suffering from a serious loss and each family member has had to adapt to this loss in a different way, which complicates their relationship with each other. They often struggle with how much of their past to reveal, and whether doing so will make things worse for them or for others around them.
Who is the antagonist ? What are its motives ?
The antagonist is the villain of the story, Locke. He’s an old man with a sadistic, violent streak. He has a very crowded and complicated past, full of secrets and hatches evil plans that he intends for Bode to commit. The epic scenes are the fights between the Locke family and the villain of the story. The Locke family have a lot of trouble with their father trying to commit a murder suicide in front of them, but their father was able to be saved.

Would you recommend watching this ?
Locke and Key is a lot like the TV show Lost. It’s a mix of drama, mystery and thriller. The suspense keeps you on your toes, waiting to see what happens next. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes the sci-fi genre or just someone that loves reading graphic novels. Thanks for reading !
