Locke & Key- drawing to a close

"The shadows have never been darker and the end has never been closer. Turn the key and open the last door; it's time to say goodbye.

The final arc of New York Times bestselling Locke & Key comes to a thunderous and compelling conclusion.

An event not to be missed!
"


The expected release of Locke & Key, Volume 6: Alpha & Omega is February 11!

So, if you haven't caught up on the series, now is the time! I did reviews here for the first two volumes, (Volume 1 Review and Volume 2 Review) and I have read the next three, but I think there is no need for me to review them, since I have nothing but praise for this comic. Incredible storyline + gorgeous illustrations + genuine creepiness= one of my favorite horror comics in a long time.
I did, however, get an advanced copy of Volume 6, and I am going to write up a review for the final chapter. I expect to have that up on Bite Club on February 3. So stay tuned and make sure you check out Volumes 3-5 before the 11th!

"The dead plot against the living, the darkness closes in on Keyhouse, and a woman is shattered beyond repair, in the third storyline of the Eisner-nominated series, Locke & Key! Dodge continues his relentless quest to find the key to the black door, and raises an army of shadows to wipe out anyone who might get in his way. Surrounded and outnumbered, the Locke children find themselves fighting a desperate battle, all alone, in a world where the night itself has become their enemy."


" Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's Locke & Key unwinds into its fourth volume in Keys to the Kingdom! With more keys making themselves known, and the depths of the Locke's family's mystery ever-expanding, Dodge's desperation to end his shadowy quest drives the habitants of Keyhouse evercloser to a revealing conclusion."

"Colonel Adam Crais's minutemen are literally trapped between a rock and a hard place; in the first days of the Revolutionary War, they find themselves hiding beneath 120 feet of New England stone, with a full regiment of redcoats waiting for them in the daylight... and a door into hell in the cavern below. The black door is open, and it's up to a 16-year-old smith named Ben Locke to find a way to close it. The biggest mysteries of the Locke & Key series are resolved as Clockworks opens, not with a bang, but with the thunderous crash of English cannons."
