I love punchy, but we do spend an inordinate amount of time ridiculing him ("hating" - catch up with like the 1990's there old guy) :p

I can send you the issue Amlah sent me, and you can do a late review.

Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows #1
I was pretty lost from the get go on this one. I definitely felt that I needed to have read the first couple of trades to have gotten a grasp on this. I have been wanting to check this out since I read and really enjoyed 'Heart Shaped Box' so I know that he can do the ghost story stuff. I will say this didn't really push me to want to go seek out the first two trades but that can possibly be blamed on the out of the loopness that I felt while reading.It is hard to review a book like this and give it a score one way or another, I can't say I hated it but I know I didn't like it so it is somewhere in the middle. I have too many questions in the end and felt more frustrated than disappointed. The art was inconsistent in my opinion, sometimes I really liked it and sometimes the faces looked really wonky to me. I did not care for the ghost fight, the colors were distracting and hard to follow. I wish I liked this more considering the trouble Amlah went through mailing it to me.
STORY - 6
ART - 5
OVERALL - 5.5
