We Can Put A Little Horror In Our New Year With IDW Limited Locke & Key: Head Games

They even come in three “labels”, color-coded to denote the ferocity of your obsession with Locke & Key, by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez. With the beloved series wrapping up in less than 2 weeks, that comforting impulse to start commemorating the comics is setting in, and just in time for the holiday season, it’s one of the most iconic arcs in the series, Head Games. Sadly, this is a pre-order situation, with shipping in mid-January, so it’s not going to make the most timely Christmas gift to yourself or your fellow Keyhouse worshipers, but still. Handing them an order slip as a voucher might still get quite a massive squee. Let’s be fair–these are gorgeously tempting book packages, but they are pricey. Choose wisely from your three options or all kinds of hell might break loose. You never know what these key-including packages might do to you…
