In the Drowning Cave, the black door is open at last, and for the kids trapped down there, the choice is simple: resist and die, or pass through the door and be lost forever. In the hole beneath Keyhouse the stones run with blood, the living shadows run riot, and time runs out... as Locke & Key enters its final chapters.

    It's worth noting that Locke and Key: Omega comes to a sooner-than-originally-planned close with this issue. The series will see its finale in two oversized issues titled Locke and Key: Alpha. This chapter, however, does not feel like the end of an arc in the slightest, but seeing how it's this freaking amazing, and the fact that the next two issues will be bigger than expected, it's tough to complain at all.

    AiPT! - Sean M. Thompson Jun 5, 2013

    Let's face facts. When it comes to horror comics, there is a lot of repetition. Themes get abused like a whore at a millionaire coke party. Abused like a heroin addict in a rugby game. Abused like my drug analogies. But, Locke and Key is original. And when you find an original horror series, you cling on to it like a lover who's just told you they are dying of cancer, and only have a few months left. You want to spend all your time with them, and let them know that you appreciate them. That they mean a lot to you, and will be remembered. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Jun 5, 2013

    Locke & Key: Omega#5 is another great issue for this series, but in no way does it feel like the end of an arc, because it's really not. The unfortunate re-branding of the final issues may make this issue's ending feel strange, but nothing's really changed. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jorge Solis Jun 6, 2013

    “Locke & Key: Omega” #5 leaves off with a nail-biting cliff-hanger. With two issues left to go, the “Locke and Key” series is heading really close to its final chapter. I'm anxious and scared to see how the story ends. Read Full Review

    "Locke and Key: Omega" #5 is only two issues away from the end of Hill and Rodriguez's epic family horror drama, but it's never too late to get into something this good. Read Full Review
