A dynamic duo who loves to push the boundaries of visual story-telling to unimaginable heights, writer Jeff Lemire and artist Andrea Sorrentino have now completed their original horror psychological thriller over at Image Comics known as Gideon Falls. Collected in six volumes with a grand total of 27 issues, this series has caught the attention of many readers and my curiosity wouldn’t allow me to ignore it. Honestly, I was bound to get around to it with my track record for anything related to Jeff Lemire…
Having now completed it, it pretty much resumes what I often notice from Jeff Lemire’s work, that is, he has great ideas, an original structure, a familiar family theme interweaved into the story (central or underlying), and an ending that either succeed or flops from one reader to another.
Fans can also now look forward to a TV adaptation of this comic book series in the upcoming future (currently in development).
