Description, taken from an interview with artist Gabriel Rodrigues:
Feel free to make other suggestions for titles, or just write and agree with me on Locke & Key.()..all started when the Locke family was torn apart by the vicious murder of the father, Rendell Locke, by the hands of a vicious couple of teenagers from the school in which he worked as a student counselor. The widow, Nina, and her three children, Tyler, Kinsey and Bode, crossed the country from San Francisco to Lovecraft, Massachusetts, to live in Keyhouse, an ancient property of the Locke family. While trying to mend their broken lives, the Locke children found out that they have not just deal with their trauma, but also with magic powers that wait for them, hidden in the old house, waiting to be “unlocked” with mysterious magic keys….
You, as a reader, is almost guaranteed to become as close connected to these characters as with Angel, Spike, Illyria, Connor, Gunn and so on..
