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: Locke & Key.

Written by Hill and featuring artwork from Gabriel Rodriguez, 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...

"It's great!...  The art here by Gabriel Rodriguez is some of the finest stuff in comics today...  The team of Hill and Rodriguez is top notch!"
- Blair Butler,
Fresh Ink

"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,
Eisner Award-winning writer

"Holy S#%@!  This is intense, man... you have got to pick up this comic!"
-Pete LePage.
Pulp Secret

"A modern suspense thriller meets something more wondrous and magical."

Locke & Key creator Hill is a past recipient of the Bram Stoker Award, the World Fantasy Award, the International Thriller Award, and the Sydney J. Bounds Best Newcomer Award.  This collection of the first Locke & Key storyline features an introduction by Robert Crais, author of the best-selling Elvis Cole novels.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
