    If you are a fan of supernatural thrillers, do yourself a favor and pick up the hardcover of Locke and Key Volume One. This is high-caliber fiction and a real exemplification of what independent comics should be. It's clear that Hill has a great deal more in store for his readers with Head Games, and if this first issue was any indicator, it should be a contradictorily fun and discomforting trip.

    Since the story is told through the rather imperfect memory of an old man, there will be parts of this issue that bring up questions in the readers mind that don't, at first, seem to make sense. However, it all comes together in the end and makes Head Games a very promising new chapter to Locke & Key. Read Full Review

    For those hooked on the first volume, Head Games continues the excitement and intrigue. Joe Hill obviously picked up a few things from his famous father, as the story pacing, dialogue and potential foreshadowing moments engage the reader from the first page to the last. Locke & Key: Head Games #1 a great way to start off this six-issue run, earning 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
