    ComicWow!TV - Huck Talwar Jan 12, 2017

    In the back of this issue, we come to find that a lot of this issue was inspired by Richard Matheson and The Shrinking Man. It's easy to see the influences, but it warrants a second read just to see if you can pick up on them. This horror series is not only back in the comic book game, but a TV pilot is being written by Joe Hill himself, to be produced by IDW Entertainment. If it's anything like this issue, we're in for a damn good time. Get stoked! And head over to your local comic book shop to pick up the Locke & Key books to catch up on this horrific yet playfully heartwarming series. Read Full Review

    Although it's been three years since any new content has been released, Hill and Rodriguez have not missed a beat. Locke & Key is still as wondrous, frightening, and filled with adventure as always. Small World captures the sense of awe that can only be felt by a child while dealing with a simple fear that tons of people suffer from. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Alexis Simonetta Dec 23, 2016

    Besides me not liking spiders at all this issues is fantastic. If you're a fan of the original series you're going to love Locke & Key: Small World #1. Keeping with the theme in the other issues you will find yourself miserably confused on where to look at times. I'm still not actually sure how much of the events happened inside the dollhouse or the actual house. And if you're not sold yet there is a kitty named Tiberius. Read Full Review
