Locke & Key – Joe Hill’s comic to be adapted. We’ll be off to Lovecraft!

Posted by LiveFor on February 5, 2010

This is great news for comic book and horror fans. IDW Publishing’s comic, Locke & Key, is going to be moviefied by Dimension Films. Written by Joe Hill (aka Joseph King, son of Stephen King) and drawn by Gabriel Rodriguez. I’ve read the first story arc, Welcome to Lovecraft, and I can heartily recommend it.

It follows three children whose father is murdered so they move with their mother to a very strange house. It has many doors and many keys. Many of the doors grant strange abilities or curses when a person passes through them and there is something strange lurking in the well at the bottom of the garden.

Locke & Key tells of 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…!

Acclaimed suspense novelist and New York Times best-selling author Joe Hill (Heart-Shaped Box) creates an all-new story of dark fantasy and wonder, with astounding artwork from Gabriel Rodriguez.
