Colonel Adam Crais’s minutemen are literally trapped between a rock and a hard place; in the first days of the Revolutionary War, they find themselves hiding beneath 120 feet of New England stone, with a full regiment of redcoats waiting for them in the daylight… and a door into hell in the cavern below. The black door is open, and it’s up to a 16-year-old smith named Ben Locke to find a way to close it. The biggest mysteries of the Locke & Key series are resolved as Clockworks opens, not with a bang, but with the thunderous crash of English cannons.

  1. Hell YES! So excited for this. Really wish I was going to CCI so that I could the the pilot.

  2. Had no idea the new storyline was starting this week. This just made my day!!!! I just hope they can keep up the fantasticness that is Locke & Key.

  3. This is one of the best books out there.

  4. HOLY FUCK!!!! YES!!! YES!! YES!!! YES!!! I’m a little excited for this

  5. Oh, the pains of having to wait six whole issues of awesome, question answering flashbacks before we even get to see what’s going to happen to the Locke kids.  This series was a creeper for me but it’s totally comic magic.

  6. What’s this going to be like as a jumping back on point?

  7. Just picked up books 3 & 4 today. This has quickly become my favorite series. I’d prefer to trade wait on this one but we’ll see if I can hold out that long.

  8. Bar none the best book out there besides Mignola drawn Hell Boy and those days may be over. 
    This is the last arc if I’m not mistaken.  Bitter Sweet!

  9. Demon Goats! thats all i have to say bout how awesome this was.

  10. This series is in the conversation for best self-contained series of the past 10 years.  What a great issue.

  11. It’s actually the second to last arc. After this six issue arc, the end begins in Omega. Such an amazing series!
