Joe Hill Comics Bundle Features IDW Publishing Favorites
There are countless ways to pass the time right now as we’re all sheltering at home. One way I’ve kept things fresh for myself is by going back and reading some of my favorite comic series. I’ll be honest, that also means going through and reading some I might have missed. While I’m a huge Locke & Key fan, I haven’t read much of the other things written by author Joe Hill. Now, an amazing, career-spanning Joe Hill comics bundle can help me, and you, fill in any comics we might have missed.
Who is Joe Hill?

Interestingly enough, Joe Hill a pseudonym for writer Joe King. Why would Hill want to use a pen name? Probably because his father is none other than Stephen King, renowned horror and fiction writer. It’s tough wanting to separate your work from that of a famous parent or family member. Hill’s work speaks for itself, however. His amazing work with IDW Publishing is just one place Hill’s craft shines through, among novels like Heart-Shaped Box and Horns.
When it comes to comics, Hill is most well-known for the Locke & Key series. The horror comic even earned Hill a Netflix adaptation (click here for a spoiler free post about the Locke and Key Trailer) that released this February. On top of this fantastic series, there are a ton of great works that are also featured in a new Joe Hill comics bundle from Humble Bundle.
