by Zack SmithAt their panel today at SDCC, IDW announced a new project by a known/unknown author (depending on what you’ve heard). Author Joe Hill is a young writer’s who’s just coming into his own thanks to the reception his novel Heart-Shaped Box has seen. Hill was ”outed” by Variety in 2006 (after his book was published though) – his fill name is Joseph Hillstrom King, and he’s the son of Stephen and Tabitha King.But – as any number of critics have pointed out, Hill was making a name for himself before his genealogy was known. He’d even sold a comic story to Marvel amidst his early career. And now, Hill’s Locke & Key, a six issue miniseries, will be launching in January.

We spoke with the author.

Full story here.
