Spousal bonding

I love my spouse. I love books. However, my spouse does not love the books I love. He loves graphic novels. So sometimes I go on a binge and read lots of graphic novels and suggest he read them too so we can reference them and talk about it. Right now he’s obsessed with Locke and Key written by Joe Hill, son of Stephen King (in case you didn’t know). I got halfway through Joe Hill’s door stop of a book, The Fireman, so I didn’t go in to these books with high hopes. But they’re good!

I have finished Welcome to Lovecraft vol 1 and Head Games vol 2. There’s a bit of gore and violence so be prepared. Although the illustrations aren’t super realistic so it’s not as disturbing, in my opinion. There are 6 volumes thus far and we’re plowing right along. If you like graphic novels with a bit of horror and mystery these might be for you!

  1. I’ve been meaning to dive into some Joe Hill soon. I’ve not finished reading anything of his but his stories always intrigue me from a distance.

      I don’t like scary stuff so much so I haven’t really read anything else by him. Other than half of the Fireman and it wasn’t really scary.
