Devil Comics Review | Locke & Key: Alpha [2013] by Joe Hill


LOCKE & KEY: ALPHA HARDCOVER
The events takes place after Locke & Key: Omega as Dodge within the body of Bode Locke has the Omega Key to open the Black Door. The creatures released from the Black Door will inhibit the bodies of the kids in the Drowning Cave. Jordan sacrifices herself for Kinsey and Jamal, Tyler was shot, and Rufus is heading towards Lovecraft.

Tyler goes to save the kids in the Drowning Cave by making an Alpha Key which unlocks demons from the souls they possess. Dodge is removed from Bode’s body and the kids are saved.
