The Cape

You know that old saying, never judge a book by its cover? Joe Hill’s The Cape is the perfect book to apply that wisdom to. On the cover, we see a man hovering above the ground, donning a cape and dressed in a t-shirt, ripped jeans and tennis shoes. Without knowing anything about the story,…

NOS4A2

As a child, Victoria McQueen discovered that she had a unique gift – she could open the door between reality and fantasy. Using her bicycle, she could conjure up a covered bridge that would take her to wherever she needed to go. If something had gone missing, Vic would race off on her bike, cross…

Thumbprint

Joe Hill’s Thumbprint “You’d be surprised what you can do to people”. I haven’t read or watched a lot of fiction that has to do with war. I’ve only really seen a handful of movies and the majority of them paint soldiers in a glowing light. I’m not about to sit here and criticize those…

Locke & Key: Clockworks

Locke & Key: Clockworks When I finished Clockworks, there was a note at the end of the book indicating that the story would be concluded with Book 6. I think this is a mistake. I think Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez should continue to work within the Lovecraft universe until the end of time.All joking aside,…

Locke & Key: Vol. 4

Joe Hill’s Locke & Key Vol. 4 What more can I say that I haven’t already said about this series? I’ve been singing its praises for the past 3 volumes and with this 4th installment, it shows no signs of slowing down.Rodriguez really shows off in this collection. He clearly isn’t satisfied in sticking with…

Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows

Locke & Key Vol. 2

Joe Hill’s Locke & Key. This volume is even better than the first! Unfortunately, I can’t give it anything higher than 5 stars. If there was an option, I’d do that. I have a feeling this entire series is going to end up on my favorites list – well, barring some unforeseen decline in quality. I…

Locke & Key Vol. 1

Joe Hill’s Locke & Key Vol. 1 When I put down Horns, I had a feeling I was going to be a Joe Hill fan. However, when I finished Locke and Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft, I traded that “feeling” in for a Joe Hill fanboy membership.  Good Gravy, this book was spectacular.  Granted, I had my…
