Locke & Key
For a couple of weeks we’ve known that a writer had been hired to rewrite the adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Locke & Key series for Universal Pictures. Joe Hill dropped a big note on the status of the movie during the Horns panel at the San Diego Comic Con.
A few weeks ago on Finally Friday, I predicted we would hear more about the Locke & Key movie at the San Diego Comic Con. With the announcement that a writer has been tapped to write the screenplay, this looks like another prediction that is coming to pass.
IDW Publishing is releasing Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows #1 for $1.00.
This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast, Matthew and Stephen hold down the fort as the minutes tick away to 2014. This means it’s a mishmash show featuring numerous comic book and video game reviews, as well as a nice mixture of Batman and the Power Rangers.
Press Release The story of Locke & Key may be coming to a close, but IDW Limited is just getting started. Available today from IDWLimited.com, fans can pre-order Locke & Key: Head Games in a new deluxe, limited-edition format (http://idwlimited.com/series/locke-key.html).

Press Release While it’s long been announced that Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Eisner-winning epic Locke & Key is approaching the story’s conclusion, details of the finale have finally been announced, and the finale has become even bigger than originally revealed.
In this issue: The Apocalypse is coming! Or at least that is what someone wishes was actually happening after reading this week’s trade paperback. Also, Zorro headed to the small screen, Black Beetle takes a crack at evil, Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriquez give us hope, and Harbinger finds Charlene Dupre.

Latino Review is reporting on Del Toro’s desire to do an Avengers-esque film with DC’s magic characters as the focus. The report also comes with rumors on Locke & Key’s future live action presence as well.
Press Release As Thornton Wilder once said, “All good things must come to an end, but all bad things can continue forever,” a quote that seems eerily appropriate for LOCKE & KEY. While at times frighteningly dark and brutally violent, Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Eisner-winning series has also sailed on winds of high fantasy and elaborate mystery, striking a mesmerizing balance and attracting a fervent and dedicated audience. While new issues may cease to appear before too long, the unique and vivid memories will live on in fans’ minds and shelves forever.
Fans of IDW Publishing’s Locke & Key have hopefully been snatching up the officially licensed keys made by Skelton Crew Studio. Those going to the San Diego Comic-Con are going to get a chance to grab an exclusive Omega Key.
