IDW Publishing’s Locke & Key, by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, won the 2012 British Fantasy Award for best comic or graphic novel, presented Friday at FantasyCon in Brighton, England.
Administered annually by the British Fantasy Society, the awards are voted on by the organization’s members and attendees of FantasyCon 2010 and 2011.
Locke & Key, which also won the award in 2009, competed this year against Animal Man by Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman, Batwoman by J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman, The Unwritten by Mike Carey and Peter Gross, and The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard.
Debuting in 2008, the horror series tells the story of Keyhouse, a New England mansion whose doors transform anyone who walks through them — and home to a relentless creature that won’t rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all.
