Editorial Reviews

Review

A pure vision of terror. --Comic Book Resources


Jeff Lemire really knocks it out of the park with this comic. I highly recommend this one. Give it a read. --Bleeding Cool


"Lemire and Sorrentino will go down as one of the greatest comic teams of all time. Gideon Falls cements that. Well, Green Arrow did, but this really REALLY does it." --Brian Michael Bendis


"Sorrentino's art offers some visually complex layouts that I found to be quite compelling. Overall, I'm really enjoying this story and the mysterious complexities it brings." --Impulse Gamer


A dark, brooding piece of evocative horror blessedly short on exposition and long on landscapes, ambiance and feelings. --The Oregonian


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

Review

LIBRARY JOURNAL -- Against his wishes, recovering alcoholic Father Quinn is assigned to lead a church in the small community of Gideon Falls. The previous pastor died, so Quinn is particularly disturbed when that same clergyman appears in his room one night. Chasing the allegedly dead man into a field, Quinn sees an ominous, abandoned-looking structure, which disappears after he finds one of his new parishioners murdered in the field. Meanwhile, in a big city also called Gideon Falls, Norton Sinclair is obsessed with searching through trash, convinced that he is uncovering the remnants of something terrible from his past, a mythical Black Barn. He collects and bottles nails and other specimens from the building, which he hopes to track down. His psychiatrist Dr. Xu is worried that Norton may require institutionalization again, but after she begins to receive her own visions of the Black Barn, she understands that whatever Norton is experiencing is more than psychosis. Together, the various characters are drawn toward whatever sickness lies within the Black Barn.
VERDICT Moody metaphysical horror with echoes of Twin Peaks-style strangeness establishes this mysterious world created by Lemire (Essex County; Roughneck), Sorrentino (Old Man Logan), and Stewart (Hellboy), presented in this first volume of a popular ongoing series. Collects single issues 1-6.
