Han Solo artist DAVID MESSINA invites you to explore the mysterious world of 3KEYS!
Did the inhabitants of another dimension flee into our reality to save themselves from the terrible wrath of the Great Old Ones...or to help prepare us for a final devastating invasion? And what if humanity's only chance against these Great Old Ones is an impetuous, mischievous young woman and her sardonic, furry, and surprisingly violent mentor?
All questions are asked and answered in this five-part introduction to writer and artist DAVID MESSINA's epic, apocalyptic universe, featuring 27 full story pages!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 5, 2022

    Lovecraft was prolific. Messina has a huge playground to move around in for a series with his work as a foundation. Three women dont know each other, and theyre all descendants of the same guy...AND they all have great cats that (evidently) only they can see as spirit guides. Its such an appealing contemporary horror fantasy. Messina and company really have something here, and it feels so cleverly formed even in the first panel. Read Full Review

    Suffice it to say that introducing your main character in a scene that derides your audience with an ugly stereotype seems like a bad way to win that audience over. Perhaps if the remainder of 3Keys #1 was more impressive I might have moved off that scene. But the issue never recovered, and I cant find enough positive qualities to recommend it. Read Full Review

    David Messina's original tale is a delightful one to look at, with expertly drawn action sequences and some great facial expressions that really help tell the story. Read Full Review

    Comic books are largely a visual medium so it's easy to see this book gaining a following on the strength of the art alone, but it's going to need a stronger script to truly make it a standout. Read Full Review
