The hot new series, Gideon Falls, from the creative team behind Green Arrow and Old Man Logan—New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award-winning writer Jeff Lemire and critically acclaimed artist Andrea Sorrentino—is being rushed back to print again. Issue #1 of the dread-inducing series is being rushed back to print a third time in order to keep up with the frenzied customer demand.
Gideon Falls is a series that explores 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. At the heart of the town’s secrets is 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.
Gideon Falls #1, 3rd printing (Diamond Code MAR188202) and Gideon Falls #2, 2nd printing (Diamond Code MAR188168) will be available on Wednesday, May 16th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, April 23rd.

As the Fantastic Four prepare to make their return to the Marvel Universe, Marvel is proud to present a Fantastic Four teaser trailer celebrating new adventures of Reed, Sue, Ben, and Johnny!
Celebrate the Fantastic Four with a view into their past and a look towards the future, from their debut in Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s classic 1961 issue to their much-anticipated return in August’s upcoming new series from Dan Slott (Amazing Spider-Man, Silver Surfer), Sara Pichelli (Spider-Man: Miles Morales), and Esad Ribic (Infamous Iron Man, Marvel Legacy, Secret Wars)!
And be sure to keep watching until the end for the FIRST exciting reveal of Esad Ribic’s dynamic and explosive cover for issue #1!
“After three decades and 10,000 miles, the moment of truth has finally arrived: Our heroes are about to come face-to-face with Woody’s long-lost father! In Australia! Will Woody abandon his adoptive brother and trusted partner-in-crime-fighting to embrace a hard-partying scoundrel with no sense of decency? Or…is the world’s worst superhero team about to become a terrible trio?
Plus: Back in America, DC’s super-science crime cabal is about to get an energizing new addition!”
Disclosure: I read this comic after another comic that made my mind hurt.
The final issue (for now) of Daniel Kibblesmith‘s stint in the writing chair, Quantum And Woody #5 concludes a with a suitably zany comic that refuses to take itself seriously but never has you rolling your eyes in exasperation. Kibblesmith uses his talent as a comedy writer to accentuate an already good story and elevate the reader’s enjoyment of a comic that’s very self aware. Quantum and Woody are seen as jokes within the Valiant universe, and their series acknowledges that in some pretty great ways.
There’s a great exploration of the relationship between brothers amidst the chaos of a potentially world ending event at the hands of a twelve year old boy. When the premise behind the comic sounds as oddly stupid as that you can’t help but fall in love with it. I suppose it doesn’t hurt that Kano‘s art is an assault on your eyes in all the right ways.
Quantum And Woody #5‘s layouts are inventive, exciting and make brilliant use of the page, with Kano showing an artistic ability in sequential art that exceeds expectations. The comic is made all the stronger thanks to the lettering of Dave Sharpe who delivers an additional level of intricacy to the visual aesthetic of the comic.
I didn’t honestly expect to enjoy this issue as much as I did, but it is remarkably easy to leave this comic with a nice warm feeling in your stomach and a smile on your face. If you want a series to take your mind away from the real world then you can’t go wrong with Quantum And Woody.
