It has been a pleasure to watch Locke & Key blossom over the years. Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez have consistently astounded me and not once managed to disappoint me with this series. So when IDW Publishing decided to compile Locke & Key: Heaven And Earth Deluxe Hardcover Edition, I was understandably excited. There is more than just a few choice bits here, these are some hard to find stories being made available again.
The first story is “Open The Moon,” which was first published in The Guide To The Known Keys back in 2011. Next up is “Grindhouse” from the self-titled publication in 2012. The last tale, “In The Can,” was part of the IDW 10 Year Anniversary Collection from 2009. But wait! That is not all!
There is an added section that details and maps of Lovecraft, Massachusetts. Additionally, there are a plethora of photographs of the beautiful landscapes and creators of this amazing series. Last but not least, the art gallery is simply stunning. In fact, I cannot even begin to say enough about this hardcover release, though I will tell you it is a must have for any true Locke & Key collector. Do not pass up this opportunity to own these stories as they might not be available again. I know I will be buying it for my shelves!
Following the Small World deluxe edition, this special deluxe release finally reprints the oft-requested and long-denied Eisner-winning one-shot, ‘Open the Moon!’ Plus the other long-sold-out one-shot, ‘Grindhouse!’ PLUS plus: the even more hard-to-find IDW 10th anniversary Locke & Key tale, ‘In the Can!’ And additional covers, behind-the-scenes photos and more, all wrapped up in a beautiful 72-page hardcover package.
