Jock&#8217;s <i>Gideon Falls</i> Variant Cover Will Make You Afraid of Barns

Image Comics cemented its horror reputation throughout 2017, with breakout terror tales like Winnebago Graveyard and Redlands making bloody waves among fans of the genre. On March 7th, the Old Man Logan and Green Arrow team of Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino, along with legendary Hellboy colorist Dave Stewart, launch Gideon Falls, their first creator-owned title together. Structured as a dual narrative set in the city and in the country, Gideon Falls introduces the urban legend of the Black Barn, a structure that appears throughout history to foretell death and madness. Sorrentino’s shadow-drenched style is a perfect fit for the horror genre, and the urban and rural settings should play to the same high-stakes strengths Lemire displayed in his Vertigo breakout Sweet Tooth. To ratchet up the tension while horror fiends await the series, Paste has the exclusive first look at Wytches artist Jock’s variant cover to the debut issue, which is guaranteed to make you look twice at any dilapidated barns in your area. Check out Jock’s haunting image below, along with Sorrentino and Stewart’s main cover, an interior preview and the full solicitation text for the first issue.


Gideon Falls #1

Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artist: Andrea Sorrentino
A brand-new ongoing series from the acclaimed bestselling creative team of Old Man Logan and Green Arrow! The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city’s trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake. Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness, and faith.
