Locke & Key
You know how sometimes you say something and at the time you mean it but later you regret saying it?
That's the case here. In the first post about this reading challenge I declared that graphic novels, though they obviously counted as reading, wouldn't count toward the goal I've set here. I would now like to officially say that is bollocks.
They made a TV series out of the comic series Locke & Key, and I really wanted to watch it but I was determined to read the source material first. So, I've just finished reading through all 37 issues of the comic, and if that doesn't count for something, I don' t know what does.
This story is amazing. A house full of keys, all with different things they allow the user to do, a sordid family history that slowly unfolds as the story progresses through flashbacks, and enough action to keep you drawn in until the end. I loved every minute of it.
So this counts. Now back to something with just words, just to feel completely back on track.
