Man folks are reading good stuff at the moment. Locke and Key is another favourite of mine.

It really is! And I'm intrigued to see the Netflix Adaptation.

Ooh, I didn't know about that - should be perfect for TV adaption, although it seems to have had a troubled development - an original pilot for Fox was made in 2011, then it was going to be a trilogy of movies, and finally after a flirtation with Hulu, it's now going to be with Netflix.

Development Hell as we called it in the pre-internet / SFX Magazine days.
I really hope that they do it justice, it's such a good premise.

Anyone know if the unaired pilot from 2011 ever made it out to the inter-webs?
Looked for it a few times before.

There are 2 pilots:


Dreamworks/FOX (2011)

"Mark Romanek directed the hell out of it. It had a $10 million budget."

IDW/HULU (2018)

"IDW self-financed a Locke & Key pilot for Hulu at a cost of $13.6m"

Netflix aren't using the HULU pilot.

I'm delighted to see there's a special / one shot coming out soon(ish) by Milligan and Allred.

Allred won't be drawn (pun not intended) on whether there might be more beyond Giant Size X-Statix, so maybe it won't just be a one-shot. Based on the cover, I was worried Milligan might be bringing Edie back - hers is a death that needs to stick, as it's all the more powerful for it - but the book will apparently feature a new U-Go Girl. Her daughter, now grown-up, maybe?

Decided to dive into the Star Wars new canon novels so just finished the first one, New Dawn. Enjoyed it a lot, and it really put me in the mood to finally watch the last couple of seasons of Clone Wars that have been on the TODO list for a while!

Next up reading the Judges novellas, still got the last two to go.

Of the 'new canon' stuff, I've only read Bloodline, the pre-TFA Leia novel, and Cobalt Squadron, the pre-TLJ Rose & Paige novel.  The former was genuinely very enjoyable, the latter a bit weaker and suffering from its YA ambience, but still interesting. Meaning to tackle JJM's New Dawn and the Wendig ones, at some point.
