    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher May 15, 2012

    While I do understand the need to have a contained story, I really don't want this series to end. It's been terrific from the very beginning, and this arc, and this issue in particular , is so thrilling it's worth reading a couple more times before the final seven issues of Locke & Key arrive. Locke & Key: Clockworks #6 is terrifying in the storytelling, awe inspiring in the artistic detail, and a perfect ending chapter for this arc. This is a must buy issue, earning 5 out of 5 Stars.

    "Locke & Key" #6 is a great example of blending storytelling with story planning. Hill and Rodriguez check off boxes for the story while making sure every page is entertaining. This comic has the power and complete control to make readers stop and start at its desire. The greatest thing you can do is to give in. You won't regret it. Read Full Review

    So why the high score? Despite any misgivings, this was a monumental capstone for the series. The execution of this arc was extraordinarily well-done. Not only did Clockworks answer big questions, but it simultaneously set up for the next and final arc of the series, Omega. Plus, Rodriguez's art is still as breathtaking as ever, with monstrous shadows and Herculean men coming to life on the page. That is an expression often used to praise well-drawn art, but Rodriguez earns it more so than any other comic book I have ever read. Whether he's showing the tears rolling down Rendell's cheeks or orchestrating a double-page climax with countless details to be taken in, his artwork transforms from paper and ink into something magical and emotive.
