Hey everyone. I'm way overdue on this. Depression, counseling, getting a new job, and an assortment of other life stuff got in the way. When I started this series, I wanted to have a new one every month on Wednesdays. So far, that hasn't happen.

Anyway, I finally finished up the next installment of Series Consideration. This time, I'm opening the doors on the Lovecraftian horror series, Locke & Key, by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez.

As I said before, I'm still very new to making videos and editing. I still don't like my narration, honestly. It sounds dry and formal. Maybe you disagree. But I'd love to hear any feedback you have.

"You don't wear your strongest influences like a shirt, something you take on and off as you like. You wear those influences like your skin. For me, Ray Bradbury is that way. From the time I was twelve to the time I was twenty-two, I read every Bradbury novel and hundreds of Bradbury short stories, many of them two and three times. Teachers came and went; friends ran hot and cold; Bradbury, though, was always there, like Arthur Conan Doyle, like my bedroom, like my parents. When I ruminate about October, or ghosts, or masks, or faithful dogs, or children and their childish frightening games, every thought I have is colored by what I learned about these things from reading Ray Bradbury. One of Bradbury's most famous collections is The Illustrated Man, which features a man tattooed with a countless number of Ray's stories, a man who walks through life carrying all those stories on his back. I relate."

Big news, after years of development hell and failed Fox pilot Netflix has picked up Locke & Key. More info here. If they do this right it could be great.

If you're not familiar with the comic this might give you an idea of what to expect:

If I had to recommend a comic to someone who doesn't read them it would have to be Locke & Key. I've posted it a few times here but for those who don't know it's a horror/fantasy series about a family who inherits an old house home to keys that unlock more than doors. It's written by Joe Hill; Hill is Stephen King's son and a novelist in his own right but I think his strength is in comics. I've mostly given up physical comics for digital but the exception is anything by Hill.

The entire series is currently available in a variety of different formats and trade editions. It's also going to be made into a series from Hulu from the director of the new version of 'It'.

Here's a small selection from #1.

Technically, it's a Gabriel Rodriguez sale but the main selling point is the entire series of 'Locke & Key' for 99 cents an issue. The sale is available here. I've sang its praises here numerous times but it's still in my opinion of the best modern comics series around.

Here is the most recent issue, 'Small World', which I posted here way back in January.

As stated in an earlier post, Joe Hill had written some scripts for a reboot of 'Tales from the Darkside'. The show never came to be but the planned episodes were later reworked into comic format for IDW. This was the last issue but functions as a stand-alone story.

"If there were a war on Christmas, I would be the general advancing on it. It’s over-commercialized. I hate seeing decorations on November 1 and I hate Christmas jingles. I had to listen to a lot of Christmas music while I was working on NOS4A2 and I wasn’t too happy about it. I’m sure if you were going down to Hell in an elevator, the music playing would be the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas album and it would speed up the farther you plunged." -- Joe Hill

I posted this in two parts last year, thought it might make a nice comic for Christmas.

This comic is a companion and prequel to Joe Hill's novel NOS4A2, although you don't need to read one to understand the other. Trigger warning for child abuse/rape.

Joe Hill (of Locke & Key) was set to do a new reboot of 'Tales from the Darkside' for the CW but it wasn't picked up by the network. He's now adapting a few of his scripts in comic form with Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW.

Something I thought that might be of interest is Audible has released a full-cast (over fifty actors/actresses) dramatization of Locke & Key. It's free for the entire month of October and can be downloaded here.

As far as I can tell (it's over thirteen hours long) it covers the entire series.

For those not familiar with the series it's sort of hard to explain without spoilers but here's a tease... a family inherits an old mansion where certain keys can unlock doors and, well... here's a small selection from #1.

So we're on the antepenultimate issue of Locke & Key and things are heading towards a close.

Warning...SPOILERS.

Also for those who don't know, the author (Joe Hill) just came out with a new novel called NOS4A2. It's worth checking out IMO if you're a fan of his comics.

So this probably won't make much sense if you haven't read the comics and it could count as a spoiler, so I highly suggest you're caught up before clicking. The series is ending in three issues.

has the preview of the Omega arc, as everything that has gone on has come to a head.

I know it sounds cliche, but one word really does best describe the things that have now been set in motion.

ENDGAME.  )
