Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Sad to see this series end, oh well next series should be soon

  2. Whoa, this has taken forever to come out…probably my most anticipated book of the month.  This series is SO good, I really wish there were more horror comics this well written and drawn.

  3. I hate to say it, I really do. My asking for this to be available at my LCS was the only reason it ever came in, but the shipping slowness is really "breaking" the story for me. I don’t have time to go back and re-read things, so when a book ships late it gets really bothersome. I think I may switch to trades after this….

  4. Best book on the shelves.

  5. I’m enjoying Crown of Shadows more than Head Games, but Welcome to Lovecraft is still tops for me. I would love to see this turned into a tv series or movie.

  6. I’ve bought the variant cover 3 weeks ago. I don’t know why, but my shop as been getting the variant covers early for the last two issues. Don’t worry, no spoiler from me but i’ll leave you with four words: ashes of the father.

    Oh and Locke and key: Keys to the kingom, starts in August.

  7. its such a shame this book only has 120 pulls! one of the best books on the stands right now! sigh

  8. @rockinggeek: Cool to know the next arc is coming out soon.

    My favorite book to read each month is a toss up between this and Jonah Hex. Each issue has been quality work. I know it has been delayed but if the quality is this good then it is OK by me. This is definitely going to be the first issue I read this week.

  9. Wow, this was a really powerful issue

  10. This series’s perfect.

  11. Another great issue and POTW contender!

  12. I, for one, am trade waiting these.  If it were an ongoing story, I’d pick it up, but the arcs are long.  If you don’t get the first one or two, why pick up the rest?  I’ve been trade waiting these and am good with that.  I’d be much happier if this were coming out as OGNs.

  13. Wow this issue blew me away. So fun at first with the mom messing around with the cabinet, then it just goes so dark and sad. This book is magic.
