But, we always try to do special things for our readers, so issue 6 of Head Games will have a special lenght... 28 pages! Hope you'll enjoy it! ;)

Best,

With the quality of your work G---I fully believe you.

Loved reading the "ingredients" for Issue#5. :)

The tension is building....

Hey...has anyone said when HG #6 is coming out? I got an email about June releases from IDW but there was no mention of it. I checked the site too.

Kinda curious when Cemetary Dance is going release Grave Tales #7. Mr. Hill was advertised to have another short story in there. The last short story of his was creepy in a Creepy Magazine kind a way. I liked it allot.

And, for those who like checking these out, one more recent round of reviews (the Ain't It Cool one you might have to scroll a little to find, but worth it):

Neat comic reviews. Are the comicbookclub guys on the couch narcs or something? They mention holding drugs more times than an undercover high school cop. LOL.

Do you read Grant Morrison's stuff? There's a running joke that you need to be on drugs to understand it.

De-lurking for a moment to mention that the Subterranean Press version of Locke & Key: Head Games is now up for pre-order. The limited and lettered version orders currently require that you have the first volume, but the trade version is open to all...

I received my signed copies of Locke & Key: Head Games from River Run today. I had one personalized for my brother, and then got a second for my collection (as I'm getting the SubPress version too, I thought he'd appreciate the personalization more). The books made it through the Postal Orifice in fine shape, and the folks at River Run did an excellent job all around.

I'll have to re-read this section again - I read it in the single issue format, but I'm expecting that I'll find new bits to it when read as a coherent whole.

I have to say, my favorite part of these compilations have been the endpapers. I just love the architectural drawings Gabriel did for the mansion. I have a very soft spot for weird architecture and Victorian-style mansions. One of the first pieces of original art I purchased was a large drawing by Raeburn Van Buren from the 40s of a spooky mid-town Manhattan mansion. At the very least I'd love to get prints of the Locke & Key endpapers... great job on the design, Gabriel!

I love being able to read it straight through! Picked up on a lot more. And who didn't love the "Known Keys" section in the back? And Gabe's step by step of how he & Joe work together?
