Description of this Book

A brand-new ongoing horror series from the acclaimed best-selling creative team of Old Man Logan and Green Arrow! The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city's trash and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn-an otherworldly building alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake. Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness, and faith that Mark Millar (Hitgirl) called his personal pick as the best comic of 2018! Also featuring a variant cover gallery from some of comics' best artists, including Cliff Chiang (PAPER GIRLS), Jock (WYTCHES), Skottie Young (I HATE FAIRYLAND), and more! Collects GIDEON FALLS #1-6

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Jeff Lemire really knocks it out of the park with this comic. I highly recommend this one. Give it a read. -Bleeding Cool I know everybody lies in blurbs, but this comic really is amazing. Do not gloss over these words. This is two guys at the top of their game and my own personal pick as the best comic if 2018 if the first issue is anything to go by. -Mark Millar If you were a fan of Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino Green Arrow or Old Man Logan, which were instant classics in the eyes of many, then check out this original story. -IGN Though Lemire is one of the busiest writers in the industry right now, the sheer volume, diversity, and high quality of his output is remarkable. He doesn't lose a step here nor does Sorrentino, who is composing here at peak level too... I left the experience of Gideon Falls more than ready to see how the mystery of this odd town plays out in the next chapter. -The Comics Beat It's a thriller, it's horror, it's literary, and it's also something truly unique. -Newsarama A pure vision of terror. -Comic Book Resources
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
