Volume 1: The Black Barn

The Black Barn is the first story arc for Gideon Falls by Image Comics. The first volume, or story arc, consists of issues 1-6. In this story arc, we get introduced to our main characters Norton Sinclair and Father Fred. There is also this really interesting mystery of the Black Barn. What is the Black Barn? Is it even real? How is the Black Barn connected to Norton and Father Fred? One of the cool aspects of Gideon Falls is the duel storytelling we get between the two main characters. Jeff Lemire does an amazing job of writing these two story-lines and keeps us interested in how they will eventually connect.

We don’t want to spoil too much, but make sure you watch the above video where we go in-depth on our discussion of this amazing story arc.

The first volume of Gideon Falls is available on Amazon, we highly recommend this series! Click here to check out Gideon Falls on Amazon.

Gideon Falls: The Creative Team

One of the biggest selling points of Gideon Falls is the great creative team on this series. Written by Jeff Lemire (Old Man Logan/ Green Arrow/ Sweet Tooth/ Black Hammer), and art by Andrea Sorrentino (Old Man Logan/ Green Arrow) and Dave Stewart ( Black Hammer/ Masteros).

As mentioned above, the writing from Jeff Lemire keeps you interested in learning more about the characters and the mystery of the Black Barn. The art is simply amazing in this series. The whole tone that Andrea and Dave set helps make this series so interesting. You just get so much more out of the story with this amazing art.
