Locke & Key: Welcome to Lovecraft #2 is the second issue of the series.


Bode continues to explore the Wellhouse, experimenting with the Ghost Key, learning he can teleport around the property by thinking about who he wants to see. Back in his body, he soon hears an echo speak to him from the well. He uses the Ghost Key to descend into the well as a ghost. At the bottom he finds a woman, who senses his presence and speaks to him. She asks him to come back when he isn't a ghost, claiming she wants to be his friend.

Bode returns, and is told stories by the Lady in the Well about magical keys and doors. The Lady tells him that she is an Echo, that was brought to life in the Wellhouse, but can't leave through the door without fading away. She tells him that the only way she can leave the Wellhouse is with the Anywhere Key.

The Lady asks Bode to bring her a mirror and a pair of scissors so she can cut her hair. Bode complies, dropping a bag down the well. The Lady, revealing herself to Sam as Dodge, delivers the items to Sam in the detention centre so that he may use them to escape.


  • In Bode's dream, he sees a wolf digging at something labelled "11".
