    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Dec 1, 2018

    Gideon Falls was already a horror comic that dug deep under your skin and made for some dread-filled reading. Writer Jeff Lemire has upped the terror and intrigue a thousandfold with this arc. This is not just a solid horror book it's now working on a whole other level. It's no wonder this is being developed for TV. If the producers can capture a fraction of the scares seen here on the screen, it's going to be a major hit. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Joanna Robinson Nov 20, 2018

    Norton is clearly the key to the Black Barn's mysteries and things are beginning to tie together between the characters. Not to mention the appearance of the possible main villain who is so creepy you know, nothing good could be coming for our band of hero's. Read Full Review
