Locke & Key

Recommended Posts

Through a friend I was recently introduced to Locke and Key, a horror-comic created by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez. I've read the four first trades, and so far I'm really loving it. It's well-written, imaginative, and has some really nice art. Has anyone else picked it up?

Back when Camuncoli first introduced his disproportionate etchings to Hellblazer I mentioned Rodriguez among a list of people who would be better if we needed cartoony Hellblazer. Locke and Key has retained that high standard. American television execs must be fucking crazy* if they don't want to serialise this. A very nice book.

 

*I know they are.

I've read all of it, very much enjoyed it too. It's a shame the tv pilot didn't get picked up, looks very faithful to the comic with good casting

Cool, I didn't know about this. I agree that this comic would be very very well suited for TV. But hey, we still get to enjoy the good comic book, even if TV execs aren't all that.

I read the first issue when it was one of the Free Comic Day issues 2 or 3 yrs ago. It made me pick up the first trade but I never followed it after that. Besides those four first, how many trade volumes does it have? I could look myself, but....porn....

There are four trades currently, the fifth is coming soon, I think, and then the series will finish with the sixth, AFAIK.

The last trade has actually been out for a few weeks. Very good it is too, wraps everything up nicely. I think I read somewhere that there are plans for a number of one off specials that visit the house in the past and future.
