The story is compelling and the artwork by Gabriel Rodriguez is amazing.

But last year, Spiderman entered a photo competition with Skelton Key (the artisans who make all the replica keys featured in Locke and Key) and he won and we got a $50 gift voucher to spend.
So after a year of waiting for them to make the keys we wanted I give you the newest addition to our collection--key to the crown of shadows and the anywhere key.
The key fits in the crown of shadows and with it you can control the living shadows.
Seriously, the shadows all do your bidding if you wear the crown with the key.
Yeah....we both tried it, but it doesn't work.
But still! we have keys! And we only had to pay postage as the cost of the keys was covered by the prize money. Now we own eight keys:
the anywhere key lets you go anywhere
the shadow key lets you control the shadows
the angel key lets you unlock the wings so you can fly
the mending key lets you open up a magical cabinet and heal whatever is broken or hurt (from dishes to a person who has been shot)
the well key lets you call back a person who has died so you can speak to them
the animal key lets you open a specific door that when you cross the threshold you turn into a beast of tooth or claw or feather
the head key lets you open up your head (or someone else's) and take things out or put things in.
the moon key lets you open a door from this reality to the next--it once helped young Ian Locke who was dying of a brain tumour to fly up to the moon in a hot air balloon, open the moon and join his ancestors
Now if they will only make the timeshift key.
