In a Twitter conversation with fellow horror maven Sarah Pinborough, Stephen King spud Joe Hill offered this interesting news to fans of his comic book series LOCKE AND KEY:

There’ll probably be some other LOCKE & KEY books (eventually) but they’ll be unnumbered (does that even make sense?).

Not sure it does make sense   Though it probably means individual stories not tied to a specific continuity

For the uninitiated, LOCKE & KEY is a comic book series from IDW Publishing written by Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez that chronicles the adventures of the Locke family in the magical and haunted Keyhouse.   So far there have been six miniseries.  The series has received wide critical praise.  And won both the Eisner and the British Fantasy Awards.
