I own all the HCs of Locke & Key
do any of the HC's contain the 'Guide to the Known Keys' one-shot?
since the 'Grindhouse' one-shot just came out, i'm hoping it will be included in a future HC edition, but i haven't been able to find out if the 'Guide' one-shot has been included.
also, how would you rate the extras (sketches, scripts, interviews, and especially a cover gallery... any variant covers?)
"Welcome to Lovecraft" Book 1: Includes a forward by Robert Crais. Includes small art gallery of standard covers for issues 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6(Cover for original issue 1 is what is on the cover of hardcover), colored headshot sketches of Bode, Kinsey, Tyler, Nina, Sam and Rendell, a sketch of Lovecraft island, and 2 elevation sketches of Keyhouse. Includes 2 very small biography's for Hill and Rodriguez. Attached ribbon bookmark.
"Head Games" Book 2: Includes elevation drawings of Keyhouse for North, West, South and East on inside covers. Introduction by Warren Ellis. Excerpts from the "Diary of Benjamin Pierce Locke" for 6 of the known keys(although for the Omega Key its a burnt image). Four pages of detailed steps by Rodriguez for developing a page of Locke & Key. Art Gallery including all standard covers for issues 1-6 plus cover art for 1:10 variant of issue 4. Same small bio's as Book 1. Attached ribbon bookmark.
"Crown of Shadows" Book 3: Wellhouse elevation and cross section drawings inside covers. Introduction by Brian K. Vaughan. Excerpts from Benjamin's diary of 9 known keys. Art gallery of standard covers for 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6(no #5), 1:10 variant for #s 2, 3 and 5. Attached ribbon for bookmark.
"Keys to the Kingdom" Book 4: Illustrations of 16 different keys inside covers. No introduction. Includes standard cover art for issues 1-6 at beginning of each chapter. Excerpts from Benjamin's diary of 15 known keys. No art gallery. No ribbon bookmark.
"Clockworks" Book 5: Floor plans of Keyhouse inside covers. Includes standard cover art for issues 1-6 at beginning of each chapter. Excerpts from Benjamin's diary of 18 known keys. No art gallery. Attached ribbon for bookmark.
None of these include any one shots such as the "Guide to the Known Keys". I actually read somewhere that all the one shots that have been or will be released are to be collected in their own hardcover along with new material.
