    “Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 'All this I will give you,' he said, 'if you will bow down and worship me.' Jesus said to him, 'Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him”--Matthew 4:8-11 In volume four we are in (spoiler alert?) two different sites of Gideon Falls (I'll try to explain), and it’s visually stunn “Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 'All this I will give you,' he said, 'if you will bow down and worship me.' Jesus said to him, 'Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him”--Matthew 4:8-11 In volume four we are in (spoiler alert?) two different sites of Gideon Falls (I'll try to explain), and it’s visually stunning to be there. It’s clear from my glance at the reviews that 1) everyone is intrigued enough to keep reading and 2) loves the art, but 3) doesn’t know what the Hell (pun intended) is going on. I find little hints in the text itself that seem to indicate writer Jeff Lemire acknowledges he feels out pain. At one point Dr. Angela Yu, attempting to figure out what is going on, says, “My head is spinning!” (we feel ya, Angela!) We are sympathetic when Danny asserts, “Let’s end this.” (We are ready, Jeff). In another place, Danny says to the Bishop: “You said we were close. Close to what?” “Real answers, son. With you back, we are going to figure this out once and for all.” Ha! Good one, Jeff! This is what we want, too! Real answers! So in this volume Norton/Danny and Clara are trapped in one Gideon Falls, pursued by a “smiling man” (he's the Real Deal Evil Guy). For some reason this guy will systematically kill everyone else in the town until he gets Danny. Why does he have to trouble slaughtering everyone else but has trouble killing unarmed Danny?! (This is called suspense, dear reader!). In another Gideon Falls, (Father) Fred and (doctor) Angie debate with the Bishop about "The Pentoculus Machine" (I will not be able to satisfactorily explain, but will tell you more about later). And in another plot line, we see that a vigilante group called The Ploughman are going after the smiling man, to finally end it all. Do we need this group? Lemire says yes, obviously. Okay another spoiler, maybe? (But I gotta say here, we would all be grateful for just a leetle bit of help in figuring out what is going on this series!): The Pentoculus we now know is Norton (or, Danny) Sinclair’s machine that has created some kind of dimensional rift in the world (we don't know how or why), in a place located in a small Canadian town named Gideon Falls, and more specifically in a barn that represents evil, or madness (at one point the doctor and the preacher admit they are doing much the same work). The barn is your basic paranormal site, ironic, as a barn is a rural Canadian icon of Goodness. So here’s the gist of the joke: Five Great Travelers walk into a Rift in the metaphysical universe--a priest named Fred, a doctor Yu, a soldier, a prophet and (because it is Lemire) a father. We (for some reason) are gonna need all five of these people to win this fight between Good and Evil so the rift can be repaired and Gideon Falls can go on being normal, I guess. Or be better, Good-er, not sure yet. But for sure not to all be killed by the smiling man! For we readers it is still at this point mainly the mystery that creates the sustained Scary that is horror. When we want answers, Lemire protests that we can’t know everything about what is going on, we can’t (yet) have everything explained because then we wouldn’t be scared anymore. And we need to be scared because this comic (like most horror comics) is ultimately about the Biggest, Baddest, Scariest Big Scary, the struggle between Good and Evil (think, i dunno, The Exorcist, that’s what’s at stake, our Mortal Souls, okay?). (And see above, the quote from Revelation). And the artwork primarily does this scaring-the-reader work, very creepy and inventive, increasingly so. The world is broken, fragmented, shattered, not whole, and Sorrentino is amazing at creating this, goes crazy with it. If things are whole you (presumably) get reflection in a mirror; in this world everything is refracted. But you know, I vote with the majority, I still like it a lot. Two or three cuts above most horror comics for sure in artistic quality and invention.

    Seeing everyone else's reviews/ratings for this makes me wonder if this isn't the best series to read as issues are released because my main thought was always WTF IS HAPPENING. Maybe I'm dumb, idk. Some issues were better than others though, so I'm still sticking with this. Individual issue reviews: #17 | #18 | #19 | #20 | #21 | #22 Total review score: 1.96 Seeing everyone else's reviews/ratings for this makes me wonder if this isn't the best series to read as issues are released because my main thought was always WTF IS HAPPENING.

    Some questions are answered but a lot more are raised, I love this series I've yet to read a bad issue!

    If you are still under the impression that comics are all superheroes galavanting around, don't pick up this book. It will horrify your eyeballs. If you love a keep-you-up-at- night monster thriller, read on, friend- you'll love the ride.

    I've given up trying to make sense of this book for now and just given myself over to the wild ride that it promises each and every time I open the front cover. The story wraps around itself like a time traveling uroboros, and each issue gives you more and more nightmare fuel as the Smiling Man's plan gets grosser and more vile with each page. Lemire and Sorrentino are on fire with this book - I just hope it all makes sense at the end.

    Every new issue of this story is amazing. Horrifying story with a bit of a scifi twist. I absolutely love the way the pages are laid out and the art work.

    I've already admitted my literary crush on everything Jeff Lemire writes. Giddeon Falls is just another home run hit. Add to that the layout and art of the story telling, and you have a great read. The story is more in the horror story genre, but still has great character development and mystery that keeps you reading. Thumbs up for sure.

    It seems we have now been told the "What?" with only the "Why?" to be revealed. Will volume 5 be the final volume. I don't actually know. There isn't much more to be said at this point that I didn't say with the first three. A great but confusing story, fantastic art, we want more.

    I don't really know what's going on but it's exciting! And terrifying, and creative, and super creepy... The Lemire/Sorrentino team continues to be excellent.

    Slowly some semblance of order is revealed; our protagonists transition from doubting their sanity to concretely resisting the otherworldly horror. A small bit of the reader’s curiosity is satisfied and you begin to suspect that the mystery was the thing that had you hooked. You start to think maybe the best part of the tale is past. But then more horror replaces it, and the smile chills you to the bone again.

    I'm not getting lost in this series, but this series is losing me. I thought I had finished this arc with #21 in March. Just actually finished it, and it lost itself a star. It's like the opposite of watching a raindrop gather momentum down your window by smashing into other raindrops and slowing becoming big. Here we have a big raindrop that is slowly becoming more and more little raindrops that are all just kind of slowing down because they're losing their driving force.
