Locke and Key, Vol. 5: ClockworksLocke & Key, Vol. 5: Clockworks
Written by Joe Hill
Art by Gabriel Rodriguez
Colors by Jay Fotos
Letters by Robbie Robbins
Series Edited by Chris Ryall
Collection Edited by Justin Eisinger
Collection Designed by Robbie Robbins
IDW Publishing
Release Date: July 24, 2012
Cover Price: $24.99

Right off the bat I’m putting a light spoiler warning at the top for Locke & Key Volumes 1 – 4. If you haven’t read them yet, get on it.

Remember reading that issue of Locke & Key where they play with the head key for the first time? The key that goes into the back of anyone’s neck, makes the top of your cranium disappear like you’re the Kool-Aid Man and allows you to remove memories and emotions and oddly allows you to peer into your own mind? And that, best of all it’s a magic that only kids can see? It’s one of my fondest memories reading the series so far. It cemented that while the book would also feature edge-of-your-seat terror with truly warm characters you feel like you know, there’d also be space for a particular form of magic: an enchanted, childlike sense of magic. If you’re like me and you wait to read the book in those handsome trades, well, ta-da, Locke & Key Volume 5 Clockworks is here.

WonderCon

Even on a Sunday the floor of this year’s WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center is abuzz. Dominating the landscape of the exhibition hall are the booths of comic publishers DC, IDW, and Archaia.

But, quite possibly the best booth at the Con so far is the one for HBO’s Game of Thrones television series. Fans of the show can have a gruesome photo taken with their head digitally impaled on a spike. The photos feature the iconic and apt phrase from Game of Thrones, “The King Can Do As He Likes.”

At the DC booth, the massive publisher showcased the latest in DC Direct figures from the upcoming Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. Among the figures were Bane, Batman, and Catwoman in her full costume. In addition, DC looks to be teaming up with New Era to produce Batman vs Bane hats — the hats feature the dark knight and bane slugging it out in the streets of Gotham.

Locke and Key News Header

Every week of the year, new comic books hit store shelves and digital store fronts. Some of those comics have been going on for a while, and some of them haven’t. One of the comics that has, however, is Locke and Key. Written by Joe Hill with art by Gabriel Rodriguez, Locke and Key is probably my favorite comic being published today. But the only problem with the comic having gone on for as long as it has is that, well, it’s not very friendly to new readers. And even those readers who’ve been there since day one might get a little off track by the different parts of the Locke and Key mythology. And oh my goodness! There are so many keys! How can we decipher between them!?

Well friends, IDW Publishing has got you covered. This Wednesday, IDW and Locke and Key will be releasing a one-shot comic entitled Locke and Key: Guide To The Known Keys.

Locke & Key Television Series

Last year there were high hopes for a Locke & Key television series based on the IDW comic book by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, with big names like Steven Spielberg, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci working on the small-screen adaptation that was to air on FOX.

FOX ended up passing on the series and aside from being screened at year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, the pilot episode will apparently never see the light of day at FOX or anywhere else.

If you’re like most fans and didn’t get to see the pilot, you can now check out the trailer for the series to get a glimpse of what this show would have been like. Watch the 2 1/2-minute trailer here below.

Joe Hill Locke & Key IDWMuch like his father before him, Joe Hill (son of Stephen King) is making the transition from printed page to big screen. Our friends at Latino Review are reporting that Hill’s critically acclaimed series Locke & Key will be adapted by the writing/producing dynamic duo, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci through their deal with DreamWorks.

The story centers around Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them. Keyhouse is also home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all. Locke & Key is illustrated magnificently by Gabriel Rodriguez and published by IDW.

Locke & Key was nominated for Best Limited Series and Joe Hill was nominated for Best Writer at the 2009 Eisner Awards. Check out the trailer for the comic book IDW Publishing put out:

If you’re not familiar with the series, now is the time to get caught up, the series has been fantastic. Welcome to Lovecraft, the first book in the series, is available on trade paperback for around $15; $16.50 if you prefer hardcover).
