After looking at the detailed specs and the mind blowing art of IDW’s Locke & Key: Head Games Deluxe Edition, it very well may be one of the most lavish, gorgeous hardcovers ever produced in the comic book industry. And it should be considering the subject matter; the highly acclaimed series by writer Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez deserves a keepsake like this or should I say these as there are many choices to pick from.
This is IDW Limited’s most feature-rich offering to date: each book comes packaged in an exclusive leatherette tray case that also contains a hardcover portfolio of photographs taken by Shane Leonard.
To fully unlock the secrets of this lavish special edition, you’ll have to pry up the floorboard of the tray case to find an exclusive custom key and journal entries from the Locke family.
Black and Blue Label buyers will be able to choose original art from an incredible talent pool featuring David Petersen, Tony Harris, Alan Robinson, Jim Mahfood and Langdon Foss.
