  • For a while many fans assumed that "Grindhouse" and "Dog Days" were a part of the Golden Age arc, until Joe Hill stated via Twitter that they were not a part of Golden Age nor any of the other arcs.[1]
  • "Locke & Key: Nailed It" had a limited original publication. It was only available at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con during the Locke & Key panel which took place on July 19, 2019. Only two variants were made. The first was a Con variant whose Cover Art featured the Locke & Key logo; only 1000 of these were printed. The other was a Deluxe Con variant with Premium Cover Art which didn't have the logo; only 500 of these were printed.[2]
