    Overall, I'm really enjoying this story and the mysterious complexities it brings. Little has been revealed to us, but what has been revealed is compelling and has piqued by curiosity. The story and art come together to form a wonderfully complex and clever chapter. Read Full Review

    A strong opening installment is followed by an equally strong second outing. A solid story from Lemire combined with more great art from Sorrentino and Stewart. Highly recommend this book, particularly if you like a mystery with a supernatural element. A great read. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Apr 10, 2018

    The more that we learn about this multifaceted story and the ominous Black Barn within it, the more obvious it becomes that there is still so much left to learn; with each door that opens, two more close. Gideon Falls #2 is wonderfully mysterious and is deserving of great praise. Read Full Review

    Not using prop characters like issue #1 did, Gideon Falls issue #2 focuses on building characters, teasing new arrivals, and developing its core story which looks like a promising, terrifying saga. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 18, 2018

    Dave Stewart's colors complete the experience, particularly with his use of red.  That shade means danger and when it appears on the page, the scare factor goes up.  Since most of the issue looks grim and dark, red stands out in a vibrant, violent nature.  It's a shock to the system.  Gideon Falls has pulled me in completely.  I still have a lot of questions, but the tone of the story and the mystery surrounding the Black Barn is more than enough to keep me interested.  We're still learning about the main characters, however we know enough about them to get wrapped up in their lives and want to see this through.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 17, 2018

    Gideon Falls plays out as something that I would find to be really intriguing if it was a late night premium cable series. I can envision the flow of it, the characters that inhabit it, and the way that the Black Barn and the red light around it would be quite chilling to say the least. As a comic, it's going to take some time to really warm up to as it's going for the slow unfolding of events, which makes sense for it, but it feels like it just needs a little more of a hook to really cement it for me.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 11, 2018

    The first issue was consistent but fairly safe in everything it did. It had that one killer scene which made it seem like American Gothic or some dramatic TV show with a grounded supernatural feel to it. The second issue doesn't have that one killer scene though and is a bit duller because of it. It's all consistent and safe, but nothing is so thrilling or interested that someone would need to keep reading. There's not dying need to know what the Black Barn is because so far, it's just there. Sure, there's a small element added, but it was expected, much like the rest of the plot. If you enjoyed the first issue, you're sure to enjoy the second, but if you didn't, there's nothing here that's going to change your mind. I'll likely stick with it for review sake, but my excitement has diminished a lot from the first issue. Read Full Review
