Everyone is welcome to get back in line to have more signed, while Joe is still hanging with us

We've been working with Joe since his early days of Locke & Key.

In fact we've done nearly 2 dozen exclusive covers of Joe's work, including many issues of Locke & Key, The Cape and Road Rage. We even have our own Jetpack Key cover. The only Jetpack Key to exist in the Locke & Key universe.

With a Locke & Key Netflix series in the near future, his own Horror Line of comics - HILL HOUSE COMICS - from DC and a new series - DYING IS EASY - from IDW your only question should be, "Which ones of these will I get signed"?

VIPs will get first access to meet Joe and have 2 items signed.
Following the VIP signing everyone else can get 2 items signed.

EVERYONE is welcome to jump back in line and see if they can get more items signed but Joe has a ridiculous busy schedule and a short signing window.

Let us not forget that Joe has a ton of novels and all kinds of TV and Movie credits.

One day only. Don't miss your chance to meet this super star writer.


Everyone wants to meet Joe so we're bringing some of our ringers to help support the line while you wait to visit with Joe.

Come early and hang out with some of our favorite creators!
