Throughout the month of July I’ve been asking people to read Locke & Key Volume 1: Welcome To Lovecraft so we could discuss it as part of the How to Love Comics Book Club!
For those who haven’t been paying attention or have just joined us this is essentially how it works:
- I set a book at the start of the month.
- We all go out out and read it.
- And then come back and discuss it.
We’re now up to the discussion phase of the process. The part where you get to have your say and what you enjoyed or didn’t enjoy in as much detail as you want in the comments below.
Before we get to the actual discussion I’ll lay down some ground rules, mostly for the sake of keeping the discussion friendly.
Book Club Rules
- Keep conversation friendly. You’re allowed to disagree with people, but do so in a way that is neither aggressive or belittling the person with different views or opinions.
- No trolling.
- Keep on topic.
- Do not spoil Locke & Key volumes 2+.
- I have the right to delete any comments which break rules 1-4.
- Finally, have fun!
You can discuss Locke & Key Volume 1: Welcome To Lovecraft anyway you want, but if you’re looking for a few talking points here are a few to help you get started.
- Themes: Grief, loss, reinvention, loss of innocence.
- Pacing: Was the story well paced?
- Art: What did you like about Gabriel Rodriguez’s art? Does it suit the themes and the story?
- Colouring: Did Jay Fotos’ colour work well with the art? Does it suit the themes and the story?
- As a horror series did you find it scary?
- Locke & Key is becoming a television series, do you think it will translate?
- Will you be reading the other volumes of this series?
Over to you, jump down into the comments and let’s talk about Locke & Key Volume 1: Welcome To Lovecraft!
