Locke & Key Changes Name, New Series by Joe Hill and Martin Simmonds to be Previewed

The October return of Locke & Key by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez with a one-shot special, has been much anticipated. But there are a few changes. IDW Publishing's Locke & Key: Nailed It, has changed regarding how it will appear in this week's Diamond Previews catalogue. This is how it was originally solicited.

Locke and Key: Nailed It—SPOTLIGHT
Joe Hill (w) • Gabriel Rodríguez (a) • Jay Fotos (c)

In 2013, the Locke family saga came to a close. Or did it?

Some doors, once closed, can never be opened again. While others shouldn't be reopened ever again…
Please join us for a return to the Locke & Key mythos with a new story by series creators Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodríguez, plus a behind-the-scenes look at the Locke and Key TV series and a 5-page preview of an all-new series by Joe Hill and Martin Simmonds!

FC • 36 pages • $4.99

Instead it will be upping its page count to 48 pages, charging a dollar more at $5.99, changing its name to Locke & Key: Dog Days, because it is now two stories in one. One of them called Nailed It and the other, you guessed it, Dog Days.

Here's the new solicitation.

LOCKE & KEY DOG DAYS
(W) Joe Hill (A) Gabriel Rodriguez (CA) Jay Fotos
TWO new stories by creators Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez-"Nailed It" and "Dog Days"-plus a behind-the-scenes tease of the coming TV series, and a 5-page preview of an all-new series by Hill and artist Martin Simmonds, too! In Shops: Oct 16, 2019
SRP: $5.99

Also, a new series by Hill and Punk's Not Dead's Martin Simmonds… he did mention something along those lines in his newsletter…

I wrote some new short stories and some new screenplays. I also wrote the script for the first issue of a brand new comic book series. Artist Martin Simmonds is not allowed to tell you anything about it.

But he is clearly drawing it…
