Anyone reading this? I read the first arc and liked it. So far the second arc is pretty good too. Discuss...

Great series. I'm enjoying this quite a bit. One of the few titles that I am buying regularly.

Great series, yet expected from the son of the Master of Horror!. Movie rights purchased by Dimension Films, no release date scheduled yet.

Big fan!! I went to the Joe Hill panel at the SDCC last year. His speech and mannerisms are very similar to this Dad. He read some of this work (short stories) to us and then he actually read a bit of Locke & Key. It was a rather unique experience to have a comic book read aloud by the author.

 

It was interesting to hear him talk about breaking into the industry without name dropping his father and mother (who is also a novelist). His agent didn't even know that he was Stephen King's son until after his first book was picked up. I'm sure Hill's success is much more gratifying now knowing that he achieved it with hard work and talent. I would recommend his novel Heart Shaped Box to horror fans. I am looking forward to reading his short story anthology 20th Century Ghosts and of course the ongoing saga of Locke & Key.

I will get round to reading these someday! I've had them sitting in one of my boxes for ages now but just haven't had the time to read 'em.

is it necessary to read L+K 1-6 BEFORE reading L+K headgames?

 

I have picked up all three headgames books (admittedly because of the awesome covers and the hype), and was curious if i'll be lost if i begin here...

 

i tried L+K 1 and two from the original run, but didn't like it much....want to give this book a real shot.

L&K 1-6 leads into Head Games. Its a pretty good read once you get into it.

L&K Headgames #1-3 is essentially L&K #7-9. Go to Half Price Books and pick up the #1-6 hardcover.

So I've finally got round to starting on these. Read #1 and #2 of the first run late last night and I loved it. Great idea and the artwork is really nice, just feels fresh compared to what I've been reading lately.

 

Thankfully I've got all the issues through to Head Games #3 so I'll sit down with those for an hour this afternoon and get through them. If the kids will leave me alone long enough that is :insane:
