IDW To Publish Locke & Key/Sandman Prequel, In Pale Battalions Go

Before Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Locke & Key/Sandman comic comes out later this year, they have a prequel planned.

The new Locke & Key story. “In Pale Battalions Go” is a two-parter that will set up the Locke & Key/Sandman Universe crossover. It’s also a key storyline in World War Key 0: The Golden Age, another upcoming project.

Joe Hill shared, “I was a little anxious about returning to Keyhouse for a real, no-bullshit, ongoing storyline. Then I got going and the story took off. The first issue was the easiest, most frictionless writing I’ve done all year (I haven’t started the second issue yet, so no idea how I’ll do with the dismount). I guess I’m more comfortable writing tales set in this world than I am doing any other kind of make-believe, and maybe that’s no surprise. I’ve lived in Lovecraft, Massachusetts for almost 15 years now. I know the territory.”

IDW Publishing And DC Comics Announce Locke & Key And Sandman Universe Crossover Event For October 2020

Today on social media, IDW Publishing announced a fall crossover event that will feature both Locke & Key and The Sandman Universe. Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez will debut Locke & Key: Hell And Gone in October 2020.

The key featured in the promotion image is none other than the key to Hell, made famous by Neil Gaiman and Mike Dringenberg’s 1990 Sandman story arc “Season of Mists.”

Launching with the “Welcome to Lovecraft” arc in 2008, Hill and Rodriguez’s Locke & Key followed the Locke siblings, as well as their mother — who return to their ancestral home of Keyhouse following the murder of their father. The comic book has since been adapted into a Netflix series, which dropped its 10-episode first season earlier this month.

Meanwhile, published under DC Comics‘ Black Label — previously DC Vertigo — the Sandman Universe was launched in 2018 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Gaiman’s original Sandman comic book series for Vertigo Comics (which is also headed for a Netflix adaptation).

Locke & Key Comic Creators Discuss The Changes From Book To Screen

This past weekend, season 1 of Locke & Key premiered exclusively on Netflix. But the story of the Locke family and their house full of magical keys did not begin life as a TV show; a few years ago, it was still just a comic series by writer Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez. 

Originally published in six volumes from 2008-2013, Locke & Key was a magically engaging comic series that invoked classic fantasy stories like Sandman and The Chronicles of Narnia while still coming up with fresh ideas. It has often made a great recommendation for people interested in comics.

The TV show version of Locke & Key very much represents the characters and themes of the comic series, but also changes up some details in the adaptation process. Entertainment Weekly caught up with Hill and Rodriguez to discuss the show, its relation to the comic, and the origins of Keyhouse. Read the interview HERE.
