Sandman Crossover With Locke & Key Has An Early #0 in October

November sees the launch of the Locke & Key/Sandman crossover, Hell And Gone, from IDW Publishing. But in October, IDW has found a way to launch an early precursor to the much-anticipated series. A Locke & Key/Sandman: Hell And Gone #0 issue to lead up to Locke & Key/Sandman: Hell And Gone #1 by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, in consultation with Neil Gaiman.

The comic will contain a reprint of the one-shot Locke & Key: Open The Moon, featuring the Moon Key that can allow someone to pass peacefully to the afterlife, alongside Sandman #22 from Season Of Mists that saw Dream travelling to Hell to retrieve his former lover Nada who he had condemned to torment. As he arrives, Lucifer expels all the demons and damned souls from Hell, abdicates as its ruler, and gives Morpheus the key to Hell's gates, which also led to the spin-off comic book, and eventual TV series, Lucifer.
