Welcome to Keyhouse with the First Trailer for Locke & Key

Based on the popular comic series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, the first trailer for Locke & Key is here.

The project has been in the works for years with a pilot shot for Hulu that never aired (though shown at conventions) and the series wasn’t greenlit. Netflix picked up the series in 2018.

The series follows the Locke family whose patriarch is murdered. They move across the country to his ancestral home in New England. Keyhouse is huge and full of mystery, especially the magical keys hidden that open all kinds of doors.

Locke & Key comes to Netflix on February 7.

Joe Hill Absolutely Kills with Dying Is Easy

“Comedy is hard. Dying is easy.” New York Times Best-selling author Joe Hill introduces the world to Syd “Sh*t-Talk” Homes – disgraced ex-cop, bitter stand-up comic, and wanted felon – this December with the launch of Dying is Easy, a new comic book miniseries from IDW Publishing.

Illustrated by Martin Simmonds, critically acclaimed artist of Punks Not Dead, this five-issue mystery draws readers into the dimly-lit venues and grimy back alleys of the comedy world, where every stand-up is looking out for themself, making enemies left and right.

When an upstart comedian with a particularly ugly past achieves stardom by stealing jokes, he quickly earns a target on his back. It’s not long before the laughter stops… and the gunplay begins.

The first issue of Dying is Easy will be available with multiple cover editions – Cover A by series artist Martin Simmonds, Cover B by Hill’s Locke & Key collaborator Gabriel Rodríguez, and two special Retailer Incentive editions: a black-and-white Rodríguez variant and character design wraparound by Simmonds.

Ted Adams & Gabriel Rodríguez (w) • Gabriel Rodríguez (a & c)

IDW founder and Diablo House writer/co-creator Ted Adams joins Locke & Key artist/co-creator Gabriel Rodríguez to present an all-new adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic science fiction novel. As relevant today as when Wells wrote it in 1896, The Island of Doctor Moreau addresses the question all scientists should ask themselves: “Just because we can do something, does that mean we should?”

This bold adaptation gives us a new protagonist in the form of Ellen Prendick, whose point of view shines a new light upon the horrific events on the cursed island, providing unique insights into one of the world’s favorite stories.

IDW Publishing Charts a New Course to The Island of Dr. Moreau

IDW Publishing founder and Diablo House writer/co-creator Ted Adams and Locke & Key artist/co-creator Gabriel Rodríguez will present an all-new interpretation of H.G. Wells’ classic science fiction novel, The Island of Dr. Moreau. Debuting in July, the two-part comic book tale of terror and evolution will be colored by Nelson Dániel and lettered by Robbie Robbins.

Remaining faithful to Wells’ plot, dialogue, and Victorian era setting, Adams and Rodríguez replaced Edward Prendick – the original witness protagonist – with a new creation, Ellen Prendick. Her inclusion allowed the creative team to explore a new version of one of the world’s favorite stories through the eyes of a more active character with a different and refreshing point of view on the cursed island’s horrific events.
