The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy and now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This week’s Friday Face-Off theme is a cover from  a graphic novel. Today I am dipping into Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez’s Locke & Key series.

Cover A:

Locke & Key 1 Joe Hill Gabriel Rodríguez

Cover B:

Locke & Key 2 Joe Hill Gabriel Rodríguez

Cover C:

Locke & Key 3 Joe Hill Gabriel Rodríguez

Cover D:

Locke & Key 4 Joe Hill Gabriel Rodríguez

Cover E:

Locke & Key 5 Joe Hill Gabriel Rodríguez

Cover F:

Locke & Key 6 Joe Hill Gabriel Rodríguez

And the winner is… COVER A!

Technically I’ve cheated this week by picking covers within a series rather than different cover versions, but I’ll live with that. I watched the Netflix series recently and absolutely loved it. So much so I immediately bought Volume 1. I quite like Covers D and F, but A wins it for me. That house is imposing and ominous. It also looks pretty similar to the one in the series. I am really looking forward to reading this series!

What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!

Next week’s theme is a cover that is mostly pink.
