One of literary horror’s best friends, IDW Publishing, has sent out the word that on October 1st novelist Joe Hill’s seminal Locke & Key: Welcome to Lovecraft is being released in hardback. The award-winning Hill’s first-ever comic book series took both critics and fans by surprise and has since been optioned by Dimension Films.
This collection of Locke & Key: Welcome to Lovecraft features the dazzling art of Gabriel Rodriguez and includes the entire six-issue storyline, a complete cover gallery, conceptual sketches by Rodriguez, and an introduction from best-selling mystery novelist Robert Crais.
If you’re unfamiliar with the series, here’s a quick synopsis: “Locke & Key: Welcome to Lovecraft tells of the Locke family, who relocate after an unspeakable tragedy to 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…”
Be sure to pre-order this deluxe edition through EvilSHOP! And in January look for Hill and Rodriguez to pick up where Welcome to Lovecraft leaves off with the next story in the ongoing saga, Locke & Key: Head Games #1.
