"Solid pacing and plot twists, combined with Rodriguez's clean lines and detailed pencils make Locke & Key a lock for best horror book of the week." -- Wizard Magazine
"In a year of auspicious comics debuts, Joe Hill turned in one of the few comics that truly came from a different place. Written with skill that makes me jealous, courage that makes me smile, and honesty and brutality that makes me want to see what comes next. Okay, I'm officially a fan." -- Ed Brubaker
"A modern suspense thriller meets something more wondrous and magical." -- IGN
About Joe Hill
Born in Santiago, Chile, Gabriel Rodriguez began working as an illustrator in the late 90s and in 2002 started drawing books for IDW Publishing, including CSI, George Romero's Land of the Dead, and Beowulf, amongst others. In 2007, he co-created the award-winning series Locke & Key with Joe Hill. He continued developing other creator-owned projects: the Eisner-winning Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland, with Eric Shanower; Sword of Ages; and the gritty sci-fi adventure Onyx, with Chris Ryall. In 2019, he partnered with Hill once again for two new Locke & Key stories, "Dog Days" and "Nailed It."
