Locke & Key's Best Week Ever (so far) continues

First LOCKE & KEY got a couple Eisner nominations earlier in the week (a nod for Best Miniseries and a second mention for Joe Hill as Best Writer). And now yesterday's HEAD GAMES #4 got its first glowing review:

"Beautiful art, imaginative panel layouts, character driven writing and the potential to learn the secrets of the greatest alligator wrestlers of all times--what else could you ask for? Locke & Key: Head Games #4 has it all.

Joe Hill must love comic books because, given his professional track record, he could have easily turned Locke & Key into a prose book series. This love for the medium shows throughout the book and, lucky for readers, through IDW he has found a crew that loves the craft as much as he does. From the pencils, to the colors, right down to the lettering, no detail is below the notice of the team behind Locke & Key."

And now a second glowing review for the issue, this time from

"Most of my reviews have been nothing but non-stop compliments and it’s simply because I don’t want to spoil too much of the book. Grabbing one review of mine for this series should encourage you I would hope to seek out as many issues as you can get your hands on and simply read them.

...It’s wonderfully written, still richly emotional and all around a borderline masterpiece. The only reason I say borderline is because it’s not finished yet and I’m sure when it is it will be something I keep close to my bedside for years to come."
