Unreleased Locke & Key TV Trailer Hits the Internet

So this has been making the rounds on the web for a few days, but I only just got around to watching it. It seems that someone got their hands on the trailer for the pilot of Joe Hill‘s Locke & Key that was made for Fox. The show did not get picked up in the end, but at least we get a glimpse of what it might of been through the lens of this two minute video. Read on to see the trailer and my thoughts.

Out Today: Locke and Key 4 – Keys to the Kingdom

I have waxed poetic on just how good Locke and Key is before, and since I doubt that was a fluke, I am now here with a public service announcement. The fourth collection of Locke and Key, entitled Keys to the Kingdom, is out today. Run, teleport, skydive, do whatever it takes to get yourself a copy to cram into your skull.

I gauge the quality of a set of novels, graphic or otherwise, partly on what actions I take once I burn through the last one I have on hand. If a book is good, then I’ll think about hunting down the next one when I’m near a book store. When I finished Locke and Key 3: Crown of Shadows, I was out of town for the weekend, and actually tried to find a comic book shop in Austin, Texas (Not the easiest task in the world FYI) to satisfy my craving for the fourth one before I realized it wasn’t out yet. It’s rare that something is that engrossing (Hunger Games also fits the bill), so you should go get Locke and Key right now!

Review: Locke and Key

Talismans of power figure prominently in fantasy environments – from the Rings of Middle Earth to Morpheus’ sand, mask, and ruby in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. The powers granted vary widely, but one thing is constant: they can be used for good or ill, depending on who wields them. The keys of Locke & Key by Joe Hill are no exception.

Set in a world that is at once familiar and magical, with characters who are strikingly human, Locke & Key is a must read for everyone. Trust me – you will not be able to put it down.
