    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Feb 8, 2012

    This is issue works on so many different levels. The Locke kids and the reader have been on a journey of discovery all these issues, and just when we think the big questions will never get answers, Joe Hill delivers a story that spells it out for us. Gabriel Rodriguez continues to mesmerize, and the creatures on the other side of the black door are creepier than I remember. Masterful storytelling and great art earns Locke & Key: Clockworks #4 5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    iFanboy - Paul Montgomery Feb 2, 2012

    This issue is slightly weighted with exposition, but it's all handled so deftly. By issue's end, I felt like I knew much more about this strange tragedy of friends and family. But I was also left with so many tantalizing questions about the future of these wonderfully realized characters. As ever, Gabriel Rodriguez's interiors are absolutely tremendous, each panel resplendent in detail. Perfect compositions. Clues. Easter eggs. And never at the loss of storytelling precision. No book looks so good and read so well with this kind of consistency. Read Full Review

    Rodriguez again provides an astoundingly high level of artwork to bring this masterful story to life. At this point in the story, many images from as far back as the first volume are seen again in a new light, so much credit is due to Rodriguez for his incredible ability to hide Easter eggs in plain sight that reward any who would go back and start from the beginning -- and with a series this amazing, it would be crazy not to.
