I am handing out candy and reading this one.
I was on the fence about this series and was considering giving up because it felt confusing and couldn’t get to the point.
It felt less a mystery and more a self-indulgent mess.
Well, it got really good with this trade and it finally feels like it’s going somewhere and questions are being answered. It’s satisfying.
A good spooky one for Halloween. (Matt Barton)
What kept me going in the early issues was the art gymnastics. I feel like the creative team is taking some big risks here with a story that provides almost zero answers for the first— testing my memory here– 12 issues. Volume 3 is definitely where the groundwork starts to pay off.
I’d also like to mention that Gideon Falls is read by three people in my family– my wife, my oldest son, and me. (Chad Boudreau)
