We’re big fans of Joe Hill’s writing and his collaboration with artist Gabriel Rodriguez on IDW’s Locke and Key series is a highlight of his career. And comics in general.
While the series was almost a TV series and a movie (here), but the first medium breakout it’s had is as an… audiobook.
And the best part? Audible is putting it out for free for the first month!
The audiobook has over fifty different performers, including Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Kate Mulgrew (Orange Is The New Black), and Haley Joel Osment (Sixth Sense, A.I.)
How the audiobook will work for something that is such a visual delight remains to be seen, but we will find out first hand when we get it on our iPods and phones tomorrow.
Locke & Key will be released on October 5th, and will be free for the first month.
In the meantime, here’s a couple of samples. Sounds great.
