Gideon Falls 1 : Black barn – The legend of the Black Barn tells of an otherworldly building that has appeared and reappeared throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake. Now, its mystery ensnares and entwines the lives of two very different men. One: a young recluse, obsessed with finding hidden clues within the city’s trash. The other: a washed-up Catholic priest, finding his place in a small town that hides dark secrets. Neither of them are prepared for what’s inside the Black Barn.
A well-written and creatively illustrated comic-series in a new horror mystery genre that tells parallel stories about a reclusive mental patient obsessed with a mystery in the city’s trash and a troubled Catholic priest assigned to preach in the small town of Gideon Falls.
A promising series by Jeff Lemire (Sweet tooth, Frogcatchers, Descender) combined with great artwork!
