Legendary Runs Episode 21: Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Locke and Key

This episode we are joined by Melissa Megan from Talking Comics, Sirens of Scream and Meganerd Media. She’s the perfect guest to break town the horror and the heart that is in Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Locke and Key. For our first discussion of an IDW book, there is a lot of similarities to our last episode. Not only is it terrifying in its atmosphere, it also explores the theme of fathers and sons. Together we three, like the Locke children, explore the secrets of Keyhouse, analyze the levels of terror that the creators explore and the significance of it’s symbolism. Most importantly, we discuss how we would abuse the power of the keys if we could get our hands on them and a invent a few for our own needs. Including the “You did not hear that” key and the “Cool shoes” key. Unlock the fun with us!

Matt Wood is a high school English teacher in North Arkansas. His classroom is littered with comic book posters and notes about Hawthorne that are as difficult to decipher as they are to be interested in. Not Matt's fault though, Nathaniel Hawthorne…
