Gideon Falls, Vol. 2: Original Sins Reviews

    This is one of those mind-twist-fucked-up-in-the-head-must-read-type-of-comics.

    So where volume 1 had a nice build up and some sudden revelations, this one moves even quicker. Our hero gets caught and thrown in a psych ward, but is it really that? The priest and cop get more answers, and even more questions, when they discover who the individual they are hunting is. Then you get the most insane last issue here as two worlds begin to collide. Past and present meld together to create a truly "Oh s

    So where volume 1 had a nice build up and some sudden revelations, this one moves even quicker. Our hero gets caught and thrown in a psych ward, but is it really that? The priest and cop get more answers, and even more questions, when they discover who the individual they are hunting is. Then you get the most insane last issue here as two worlds begin to collide. Past and present meld together to create a truly "Oh shit" moment.

    Gideon falls continues to be enthralling every step of the way. The art took a bit to get used to but now I love it. There's one shot in here that blew my mind of how cool and different it was. Dialogue is strong as usual and Jeff Lemire does a amazing job of spinning a complicated tale.

    I really loved this volume and a easy 5 out of 5.

    Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino continue to mindfuck us with this 2nd volume and all I can think to say is...thank you.

    Personally, this is one of my favorite monthly pulls, every issue gives us a smidgen more of the story, and every issue continues to confuse me all over again. I was actually laughing out loud in glee as I turned the last few pages at the end of this arc. Everything about...the writing, the crazy panel layouts, the entire presentation, really, are 100% on point!

    I'm so

    The second book proved that some comics just work much better as a whole than as issues. Which looked bit complicated at first is actually quite simple. The first confusing thing about Gideon Falls is that the evil, supernatural force, unlike in other stories from the horror genre, is not known here. There are clues not to it, but to its manifestation in our world. The second book finally puts most of the clues together and started to focus on the force behind it (in a cliffhanger, of course). T

    The second book proved that some comics just work much better as a whole than as issues. Which looked bit complicated at first is actually quite simple.

There are clues not to it, but to its manifestation in our world. The second book finally puts most of the clues together and started to focus on the force behind it (in a cliffhanger, of course). This is the chilling kind of horror, which gives you creep by compromising our view to the order and leaving the main characters as a pawn in some game. They can try hard, but the ominous force always has the upper hand. As for art, I find the drawing of the characters ugly most of the time. And overall some scenes bit chaotic (as in drawing). But the work with the panels and pages is mesmerizing and unusual, but Sorrentino uses panels not as the storytelling tools, but as an art form. And that could be confusing because after few "classic" pages which are telling what's going on comes few other pages primary to shock and impress. But it works for the story and for the comics, making it something far from mundane. And that's good, not aiming for a vast audience but to make something, something else.

    I feel like I have no idea what's going on but I enjoy it anyways.

    I suppose it will require a complete re-read to catch all the details I've missed while reading this in single issues. The mystery of the Black Barn is slowly unraveling, Father Fred and Norton finally meet each other and it's really mindblowing.

    Great atmosphere and art! Highly recommended if you are looking for some mysterious thriller/horror.

    Better than the first volume as we are slowly getting some answers doled out each issue. There's a lot of moving pieces here and it's still not clear how they all fit together. There is a feeling of dread throughout the book, but I definitely wouldn't consider this horror like a lot of other readers do. Sorrentino's art works really well at portraying that sense of dread along with tripping dimension? time? (Who can really besides the creators at this point?) spanning visuals. I still think this

I still think this will work better as one epic read once it's completed.
