Fans of Locke & Key have one more ring to collect from Skelton Crew Studio. The Moon Key went live in the Skelton Crew Studio store over the weekend, and if you are one of the first 400 to buy one, you’ll get a card signed by Joe Hill, writer of the IDW series.
Cryptozoic Entertainment, developer and publisher of the World of Warcraft® Trading Card Game, is pleased to announce that the company has partnered with IDW Publishing to create an exciting new card game based on the Locke & Key comic series by award-winning author Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez. Launching in 2012, Locke & Key: The Game will bring players inside this haunted world.
I have been buying up the Locke & Key replica keys from Skelton Crew Studio for some time, and love the crafting and detail in each. There are a couple of new keys on the way, and we’ve got an early look at the Chain Key.
It’s a big stretch to take the small tidbits of information from the Deadline website and turn that into a full fledged claim that MTV is interested in producing the Locke & Key television series, but the Intardwebz is all hot over this, so why not go along with the crowd, offering our own information? According to the article, a DVD screener of the pilot was sent to MTV programming chief David Janollari, who apparently liked it. And who wouldn’t have you seen the trailer? It’s awesome!
Other than the DVD screener that was sent from Fox to Janollari, there has been no other movement, and I doubt anything will happen.
Things are always darkest before the dawn, and for the Locke kids, things are looking pretty dark right now. IDW Publishing’s Locke & Key: Clockworks #2 arrived this week and the dark corners of the Major Spoilers HQ are just a bit scarier now.
LOCKE & KEY is taking San Diego Comic-Con by storm in July. Centered at the IDW booth #2643, the LOCKE & KEY action will be non-stop, with exclusive keys, books and temporary tattoos; plus signings with the multiple Eisner-nominated creative team of Joe Hill (Horns) and Gabriel Rodriguez. On Friday, attendees will have a chance to see the pilot everyone is talking about, as Hill and Rodriguez headline the panel and are joined by Locke & Key television writer Josh Friedman for an only at Comic-Con screening of the Locke & Key pilot. With thanks to Fox Broadcasting Corporation, details for the screening and panel are listed below.
Here is some good news for those who were disappointed that Fox passed on the Locke & Key television series – you get to see the pilot! The bad news? You have to be at the Locke & Key panel at the San Diego Comic Con.
“This one-time-only screening of the entire pilot will show you just what a void there will be on your TVs this fall,” IDW’s ad materials say. Locke & Key, directed by Mark Romanek and starring Miranda Otto and Nick Stahl, was one of the highest-profile pilots this past season.
You can thank IDW Publishing for going directly to 20th Century Fox seeking permission to screen the pilot. The event takes place July 22, at 10:30 AM in Room 8 and 9. If enough of you show up express your support for the show, perhaps, just perhaps the network will listen and bring the show back from the dead. Of course, this is Fox we’re talking about…
