Itâ€™s so much more fun, when you just open your mind… The first issue of Locke & Key: Head Games was a prologue meant to ease readers back into the groove of the weird happening in Lovecraft, Mass. Issue #1 featured Lucas Caravaggio (under the guise of Zack Wells) reveal his master plan – he plans to kill all those who did him wrong all those years ago.Â And while Joe Hill kept the Locke kids out of the picture last go around, they take center stage once again.
Welcome to Lovecraft was rated quite highly when the Major Spoilers crew gave it a look-see, and it was clear at the end of the series there was more story to tell.Â IDW Publishing and Joe Hill just released the first installment of the next chapter of this compelling story, in Locke & Key: Head Games #1.
Donâ€™t read this late at night…or a month after the last issue My biggest problem with Kull is that so much of his mythos has been wrapped into the Conan mythos that telling one from the other is often difficult.Â This is especially true when it comes to the serpent cult, which has appeared in Conan comics from the 1970â€™sÂ and in the Conan animated series.Â Strip off King Kullâ€™s wardrobe, and feature him sneaking around the castle in his skivvies, and the line between the two – at least in this issue – is wiped away.
