    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Apr 18, 2019

    The spectacle of the series is by far the artistry of Sorrentino, bringing into existence the insanity Lemire puts onto these completely unhinged scripts. From the beautifully rendered depictions of life to the mind-bending landscape from within the Sinclairs haunted black barn, Sorrentino delivers some of his best work to date. As the series is set to air on television in the future, the overall positive responses to the title bring hope for a rich story with longevity from this fantastic duo. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Apr 17, 2019

    Gideon Falls started with the compelling premise of a haunted location known ominously as the Black Barn, and as we learn more about the terrifying reach it and its envoys have, it's hard not devour each monthly issue. Gideon Falls #12 is a frightening standalone issue that when viewed within in the larger context, makes for some fantastic fiction and a must read for 2019. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Apr 4, 2019

    Gideon Falls is the kind of story that crawls inside your head, makes a fetid nest and decides to breed. Good luck trying to un-see this one. This issue works as a starting point, so jump in here or go back to the beginning. Either way, keep the lights on. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Apr 18, 2019

    Gideon Falls#12 shifts the focus of the book to a new time and place in more ways than one. This may seem like a restart at first but clearly, the approach here is much bolder and well executed as anyone in this series would expect. As you turn each page the atmosphere builds to that expected boiling point only to go further and father than one would expect. Based on this issue Gideon Falls has no intention of slowing down.

    Word Of The Nerd - Jordan Claes Apr 17, 2019

    Sometimes in order to move forward, you need to first go backward. It appears Jeff Lemire is telling us that in order to understand the Black Barn, we need to go back to where it all began. While a part of me is admittedly disappointed at having to wait to find out what happened with Norton and Father Fred, I know we'll get there in time. It's what I love about Jeff Lemire; he's constantly imbuing a sense of confidence that everything will be ok. He reminds readers that it's ok to look out the window, to enjoy the journey rather than always needing to focus on the road ahead. Read Full Review
