Horror News Network’s Comic Awards 2019: Series of the Year

With its debut in 2018 we immediately knew that Gideon Falls was going to be a series to watch. Created by writer Jeff Lemire and artist Andrea Sorrentino, Gideon Falls has been called a mix between the psychological dread-inducing terror of Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House with the unsettling atmosphere of Twin Peaks. Almost twenty issues in with three collected trades, the series follows the legend of the Black Barn, an otherworldly building alleged to have appeared and reappeared throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake.

Back in October we reported that Hivemind announced that they will be teaming with James Wan and his Atomic Monster production company for the upcoming television adaptation of Gideon Falls. In an interview with Syfy, Lemire said that even with the adaptation to the small screen, the comic will remain his primary focus. “Comics are and always will be my focus. But, at the same time, if I can continue to create comics, but also help to develop them into other media, then I will. In the case of Gideon Falls, it’s still early, but I plan on being quietly involved with the production. But my main priority is to continue to develop and produce the Gideon Falls comic with Andrea, which in turn gives Hivemind more material to work with.”

Congratulations to Image Comics and the team behind Gideon Falls for winning the 2019 Horror Comic Award for Series of the Year. We look forward to what the team has in store for fans of horror comics in 2020.
