Horror News Network would like to congratulate Jeff Lemire as our choice for 2019’s Writer of the Year.
Lemire once again had a prolific year, writing a wide variety of titles in a number of genres, but his work on Gideon Falls, Berserker Unbound, and the recently released Family Tree, established him as the top writer for 2019 in the world of horror comics. Lemire’s ability to create believable characters and dialogue in the most unusual of settings, often in cases where readers are able to feel a palpable sense of dread, is a trademark of his writing style, and one that was evident in all of his horror work this year.
Lemire received even more notoriety over the summer, as Image Comics Gideon Falls was nominated and won 2019’s Best New Series Award at the annual Eisner Awards. It is also no surprise that Gideon Falls is now in development as a television series, with James Wan attached as an executive producer.
Current issues of Image Comics Gideon Falls and Family Tree, as well as Dark Horse Comics Berserker Unbound are currently available at finer comic book stores everywhere. The first three volumes of Gideon Falls are also currently available, just in case you need to catch up.
