LOCKE & KEY SANDMAN HELL & GONE #1 by Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodriguez, Jay Fotos, and Shawn Lee brilliantly merges the two acclaimed comic worlds of IDW’s LOCKE AND KEY by Hill and Rodriguez, and DC Comics’ THE SANDMAN, created by the powerhouse team of Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg, in a rousing, seamless crossover.
The story begins at the notorious LOCKE & KEY wellhouse, positioned behind the generationally afflicted Locke residence located on Lovecraft Island, Massachusetts. Chamberlain Locke, one of the few surviving members of the Locke family following the aftermath of The World War, is the first character introduced in the story as he unlocks the door to the wellhouse. Severely weakened by cancer, Chamberlain employs the Echo Key to summon his dead son, Jonathan “Jack” Tyler Locke, from the burning depths of Hell. Jack, who has been consequentially trapped since committing suicide in an attempt to drown both his inner demons and Keyhouse (he had used the Anywhere Key to opened the door to HMS Titanic), is desperate to be freed.
