The discovery of a time travel key allows the creators to reveal the ominous source of the keys' power, and show the adventures of the previous generation of key keepers and how their reckless use of the keys lead to all the current problems.

Locke & Key, Vol. 4: Keys to the Kingdom - Joe Hill,Gabriel Rodríguez

The creators introduce new keys at a breakneck pace, and continue to ratchet up the tension as Zack becomes increasingly desperate to find the Omega Key. One issue is done partially in a style derived from Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes series.

You Can't Mend the Dead
Locke & Key, Vol. 3: Crown of Shadows - Joe Hill,Gabriel Rodríguez

It is telling that the real horror of vol. 3 is not the battle between the kids and the army of animated shadows, it is their mother's increasing alcoholism and loss of self control. There is a lot more potential horror in psychological deterioration and domestic violence than in regular old monsters.

Stop Doing That With Your Head
Locke & Key, Vol. 2: Head Games - Joe Hill,Gabriel Rodríguez

Head Games combines body horror and fear of brainwashing into a very effective horror concept that is particularly well suited to the graphic medium. Bode Locke finds a key that opens up the top of people's heads. Once a head is open, not only can you see a sort of Hieronymus Bosch hellscape of their thoughts, dreams, memories and fears, you can also reach in and change things. Over the course of the story, the changes made using the Head Key go from amusing to alarming to horrifying.

 

Joe Hill crafts a fascinating story in this series and Gabriel Rodriguez's artwork manages to be cute and grotesque all in the same image.
