Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows by Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez

Yesterday Subterranean Press announced that they were hard at work on Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows, the third graphic novel in Joe Hill’s award-winning ongoing series, illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez, with a full-color dust jacket by Vincent Chong.

Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez

Turn the key. Unlock the door.
I’m sure you’ll be perfectly safe.

Unless you live in Keyhouse, in Lovecraft, Massachusetts. In that case, turn the right key, and you could wind up anywhere.

Keyhouse has, like any haunted house, not only its own ghosts but also its own agenda. It chooses the keys that are found, and those that remain hidden in the shadows. And the shadows of Keyhouse have their own key as well.

Now in possession of the Shadow Key, Dodge uses it to continue his quest for the mysterious Omega Key. The remaining members of the Locke family are still rebuilding their lives, in the wake of the devastating events that began in Welcome to Lovecraft and Headgames, but there is no key to make that rebuilding easier. Locking things away doesn’t make them any safer. At Keyhouse, shadows come to life, and a giant walks.
Turn the page. Unlock the story.

Crown of Shadows, the third installment of the award-winning Locke & Key series, co-credits writer Hill and illustrator Rodriguez as “storytellers,” and it’s an apt designation, shown by the seamlessness with which the text and art interact. They are one of the best storytelling teams in comics. After the completion of Crown of Shadows in 2011, both Hill and Rodriguez were nominated for Eisner awards-Best Writer (won by Hill) and Best Penciller/ Inker, respectively, and the comic was nominated for Best Continuing Series.

The Subterranean Press edition of Crown of Shadows will include not only the entire graphic novel, but also the scripts for each issue.

The limited edition will include all of the scripts for the mini-series, original full-color endsheets by Gabriel Rodriguez, and a full-color dust jacket by Vincent Chong.

Limited: 250 signed numbered copies, housed in a custom slipcase: $250

Lettered: 26 signed lettered copies, housed in a custom tray case, with an original sketch by Gabe matted in the case: $500
