“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.” – Eisner-winning writer Ed Brubaker

“Locke & Key is a breath of fresh air in the comic book industry. A modern suspense thriller meets something more wondrous and magical.” — IGN.com

“Solid pacing and plot twists, combined with Rodriguez’s clean lines and detail pencils make Locke & Key a lock for best horror book of the week.” — Wizard Magazine
