Forbes' Best Graphic Novels
of 2018
Magazine's Favorite End-of-Year Books, 2018

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!

Review quote

"Combines avant-garde graphic treatments with
outstanding writing to create a genuine tale of terror." -Boing
Boing "Jeff Lemire really knocks it out of the park with this comic. I highly
recommend this one. Give it a read." -Bleeding Cool "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 "Saturated with a horrific sense of anxiety."
-Entertainment Weekly "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 "It's a thriller, it's horror, it's literary, and it's also something truly
unique." -Newsarama
