it was amazing
bookshelves: graphic-novels-comics, horror
Read in July, 2011

A heady hybrid of YA and intense, no punches pulled horror tale revolving around the most un-lucky family in the Bay Area. I honestly do not want to give a ton of the plot away (family struck by tragedy, move to creepy house in New England for more misadventures) as Hill does a great job eking out more details and layers to the events and trauma going down. There is also a really great sense of adventure and discovery in the Keyhouse (where the family has moved) which add a nice quest/world-building dimension to the proceedings. Joe Hill does a great job in giving believable personalities for the family, and a very compelling plot, Gabriel Rodriguez's art is solid with the horrific aspects hitting particular hard. Recommended for folks who enjoy character driven and adventure flavored horror.
