Graphic novels or comics?

Post  Bazinga! on Mon Aug 27, 2012 11:28 pm

Has anyone heard of Locke & Key? I know they probably wouldn't be considered anime or manga (that's why I didn't post this there) but do you think that Locke & Key would be considered graphic novels or comics?

I got the first three books for my birthday and I just started reading the first book the other day. I think it's really good so far. Just curious if anyone else reads them and what they think of them?

Synopsis for book 1 titled 'Welcome to Lovecraft' :
Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with
fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them....
and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest
until it forces open the most terrible door of them all...! Acclaimed
suspense novelist and New York Times best-selling author Joe Hill
(Heart-Shaped Box) creates an all-new story of dark fantasy and wonder,
with astounding artwork from Gabriel Rodriguez.

Yeah, Locke & Key isn't anime/manga. And according to the brief search I did, apparently it's considered comics instead of being a graphic novel. What the difference is, I don't know, but it's comics.

I just read the first part of it and I don't think I like it. I don't like the way it's drawn.

That's what I thought. I found the same thing when I searched but yet they have it in the graphic novel section at the store. Wonder why?

I may be the only one who likes it so far. Everybody I know has never even heard of it much less read it.

Well, I don't know... I don't really know what a graphic novel is in the first place and how it differs from comics.

Yeah, I hadn't heard of it either until you mentioned it. I'll ask a few people at my school about it and see if they know it.

Yeah, I don't know know how to tell the difference between comics and graphic novels either. That's why I asked because I wasn't sure which to call it.

No one I know has heard of it. Yet I've heard they are going to make a movie based on this.

Good reason to ask.

... No one has heard of it and they're still making a movie? When is it supposed to come out?

I'm not sure. Last I heard it was put on hold. I'll find out if they're still making a movie on it and let you know if you want.

Yeah, post it. I'll try the movie and see if I like that better. Plus, someone might join who does like it, and they probably would want it.

Okay, this is what Wikipedia has to say about the movie/tv series for Locke & Key.

Dimension Films acquired the film and television rights for Welcome To Lovecraft from IDW Publishing with the intent of developing the property as a feature with John Davis producing.[31] In February 2010, it was announced that Dimension had lost the adaptation rights to Dreamworks[32] with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci signed on to develop and produce the project.[33] In August 2010 Steven Spielberg also joined as a producer, and the production became a TV series rather than a movie adaptation, with Josh Friedman penning episodes for the show and acting as show-runner.[34]

The TV series adaptation then landed at 20th Century Fox Television. The network greenlit a pilot, produced by Dreamworks TV and K.O. Paper Products through the latter's deal with 20th Century Fox TV.[35]

Miranda Otto played Nina Locke, Sarah Bolger was Kinsey Locke[36][37] and Nick Stahl co-starred as Duncan Locke.[38] Skylar Gaertner played 6-year old Bode, and Harrison Thomas played a teenager possessed by an evil spirit.[39] Actor and singer Jesse McCartney appeared as Ty Locke, the series' male lead[40] and Ksenia Solo was cast as Dodge.[41]

Mark Romanek directed the pilot episode,[42] which was filmed at the mansion in Hartwood Acres and in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania in February 2011. The pilot was also shot throughout Pittsburgh that same month.[43] In May 2011, Fox announced that the project would not be picked up to the series.[44]
The studio attempted to sell the project to other networks but
eventually ceased efforts due to rising costs. However, the show has
been eyed by MTV, though no official talks have been had, as of yet. The
pilot was screened at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con International, where it was well received.[45]
