LOCKE & KEY: GRINDHOUSE will be dirtying up the shelves of your local comic store tomorrow, and staining eDevices of all kinds:
GRINDHOUSE is a standalone story; you need not have read any other LOCKE & KEY stories to enjoy it. Jump on in. The water is great.
Have had a lot of questions about whether GRINDHOUSE or OPEN THE MOON will appear in a future hardcover. The answer is, yes, but not for a while.
The story begun in the first volume of LOCKE & KEY (WELCOME TO LOVECRAFT) will conclude in the next book, OMEGA. But at some point in 2014, there’ll be what I think of as the “bonus” LOCKE & KEY book: a collection of standalone stories tentatively called THE GOLDEN AGE. That’s where you’ll find GRINDHOUSE, OPEN THE MOON, IN THE CAN… and four other stories.
After GOLDEN AGE, Gabe and I have plans to tackle some other projects, including this weird superhero thing we’ve been kicking around for several months, and a new creator-owned series. But the door to Keyhouse is always open, and I’m sure at some point we’ll have to wander back to tell our World War II story, BATTLEGROUND. And there’s a Civil War thing I’d like to do sometime. And more about Ben Locke. That’s a big house there and there are many rooms to explore.
Thanks for explorin’ ‘em with us.
