    Not exactly a perfect ending but kind of expected all things considered. It feels a bit rushed up- despite this oversized last issue, particularly the very last pages. As for the last panel... let’s say that’s the usual...

It had an impact in this final issue where I was never scared for them which greatly diminished the tension. But the story wasn’t really about the characters, was it? No more Mr Killjoy here. I liked the run; it was dark, unhealthy, frightening even and totally enhanced by the art team: Andrea Sorrentino (whose style I don’t particularly like but which perfectly suited the plot) with his crazy designs and storytelling and master Dave Stewart with his sick colors. Let’s say I liked the journey better than the destination but that was a really nice ride.

    Gideon Falls ends exactly as I expected it would, and that’s mostly a good thing, I think. I’m not satisfied, not really. But this series has always been more about frustrating and confounding the audience than satisfying them, so in that respect, its conclusion is appropriate. Like I said in my review of Volume 5, I think the generally shallow character work of the series really steps into prominence here. When the plot is flying by with terrifying twists and turns, it’s easier to look past the Gideon Falls ends exactly as I expected it would, and that’s mostly a good thing, I think.

Like I said in my review of Volume 5, I think the generally shallow character work of the series really steps into prominence here. When the plot is flying by with terrifying twists and turns, it’s easier to look past the thin characters and just enjoy the ride. But when the series is coming to its end, you need to have some investment in the characters, and I just didn’t. I like the cast well enough, but not to the degree that I was overly concerned about how they ended up, which dulled my impression of the finale’s otherwise impressive antics. Lemire’s plot and Sorrentino’s signature artwork play with expectation and perspective in some riveting ways and tie the series up with a fitting sense of cyclical evolution and resolution. I like how trippy it is, I respect how obtuse the final pages are, and as unsettled as I am by the implication of the concluding panels, they feel right for the series. I imagine Lemire’s story will work better as a complete whole, instead of the segmented nature of reading it as individual issues or volumes. I wish this final issue had been longer or encompassed a volume all its own because I very much wanted to be enthralled with it, and it almost, but not quite, got me there. I’ll definitely be picking up the inevitable Deluxe Edition hardcover(s) they put out, as I’m interested to see if the ending will land better for me once read front-to-back. Sorrentino’s work remains excellent, as you can imagine, and I will always be in love with the way he so thoroughly subverts and exemplifies the comic book medium with his art. He breaks in and out of his frames and does things with paneling that bring M.C. Escher to mind in the best way. It’s wild, exciting stuff that Stewart’s stark coloring and Wands’ spectacular lettering elevate to even higher levels. If Gideon Falls leaves behind a legacy, it’s going to be a result of the artwork the team consistently put together. This isn’t a perfect ending, but it’s a good one. It left me feeling a bit hollow, but again, maybe that’s the intent. Like most ambitious, mind-bending horror, it doesn’t stick the landing, but (most) of the journey getting there was worth it.

    Multiversal shenanigans come to a conclusion as Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino pull out all the stops for this final 80 page conclusion. The ending's about as satisfying as you could expect; there's a big confrontation with the Laughing Man, the power of love and friendship comes into play, and a final panel teaser that shows that nothing truly ends in the world of Gideon Falls, all depicted with utterly mind-bending visuals.

I wasn't a huge fan of having to turn the book upside down all the time, but I have to admit that it works in terms of the storyline. Gideon Falls' ending announcement made me wonder if it wasn't a little premature, but having now read it, I get why it had to end here - there was never really any other way it could end.

    This might actually be the worst way to end this story across all multiverses and timelines. It's just an assortment of awful tropes and cliche lines that mars Sorrentino's beautiful art. God this series went downhill faster than a racecar. This might actually be the worst way to end this story across all multiverses and timelines.

    This was a bad ending. A string of mostly incoherent moments of bravado from our cast of heroes leading to a wet fart of a multiverse denouement. It was confusing, but not in a way that makes me want to dig in and re-read it. Pretty much since the beginning this series has been overreaching for a deepness it never achieved and a horror element that, in it's finest moments, approached only from a distance. This is one I'm glad to be done keeping up with. And some confessions, here at the end: I ha This was a bad ending.

There are also some really unforgivable photoshop backgrounds and textures throughout the series. The sequences when pages are visible in continuity are lame and not the [Eric-Wareheim-mind-exploding.gif] they're intended to be.

    I have a feeling people are calling this series 'mind-bending', when they really mean 'faintly confusing'. It's a story built up out of horror and sci-fi clichés, that bigly whiffs the ending, and sacrifices characterisation to plot. So we have cosmic horror that doesn't work because it's not actually cosmic horror, just smells like it a bit. The first couple of times you see the grinning man (and I'm sticking to that name, it's a million times better than the 'laughing man' or 'smiling man') it I have a feeling people are calling this series 'mind-bending', when they really mean 'faintly confusing'. It's a story built up out of horror and sci-fi clichés, that bigly whiffs the ending, and sacrifices characterisation to plot. So we have cosmic horror that doesn't work because it's not actually cosmic horror, just smells like it a bit. The first couple of times you see the grinning man (and I'm sticking to that name, it's a million times better than the 'laughing man' or 'smiling man') it is genuinely unnerving. But then he/it starts popping up everywhere, and even worse - he/it starts speaking. And he sounds like a run of the mill psychopath. Poof! Cosmic horror: gone. The grinning man shouldn't give a shit about humans, he/it should plough right through us on his/its unknowable way. Cosmic horror works on the idea that we are insignificant, we can't begin to understand the thing that's coming for us. The grinning man is a provincial horror, at best. Instead we get a monster that wants to inhabit one of the main characters, because he's Special. Never really explained why, it's there because that's what happens in stories. We need a The One. The Five Travellers. Why five? Because Pentoculus. Because that's what happens in stories. It just is. A priest character who does a thing because he believes in it, and he's a priest, they believe things for s living. It also helps the story along and feels like a character moment - cheap and corny, but still. A priest character who suddenly can't be hurt by the provincial horror, because he doesn't believe in the provincial horror. He's a priest, it works! It is never mentioned again, never used again. The One character decides to sacrifice himself, because that's what characters do in stories, and the rest joins him, because they're the Five Travellers, and there's five of them five five FIVE Gideon Falls is literally the centre of the universe. The walls of reality are thin there or something, it is never really explained, it just is. Because the series is called Gideon Falls, is my guess. The fact that so many people say 'it could've only ended like this' means the ending is another cliché, and means it could've ended in many other and better ways. The art is great. I liked it. And Jeff Lemire is generally a really good writer. I've seen more than one person mention they don't like Lemire's sci-fi writing, so maybe that's his weak spot. I will have to investigate further. 1.FIVE stars

    An okay ending to a great series. I would still recommend Gideon Falls to fans of horror fiction, but the ending fizzles out all the buildup this series had. A lot of the time travel turns out to be complete nonsense. Quick! You have to do *thing*! Why? Because it has to happen. It already happened, so just do it! Most of these actions don't actually help in any way or have weight to the story.

(hide spoiler)] The worst thing about the ending isn't actually the ending itself, but how it invalidates the events of the last few volumes. The game of cat and mouse of running away from the evil, getting separated, running away, then uniting later felt pointless. We're led to believe it's all part of the plan that people in the future set up for us, but that whole plot line turned out to not make much sense. Spoilers ahead: (view spoiler)[I understand that this was "all part of the plan" by the evil in the center to take control of Daniel, and that's probably how it manipulated others through time travel BS to follow through with their stupid plan, but what's the point? It had already won and was infecting every universe, why LEAD them back into the barn and have them destroy it if your plan is to take over Daniel and have him re-build the black barn later!? WHAT'S THE POINT!? You already won! (hide spoiler)]

    This whole series was beautifully illustrated and was a creative take on multiverse badddies. I'm seeing reviews where folks are disappointed at the abruptness of the conclusion of the series. It felt like a genies wish, *POOF* with just the right mix of normal life with ominous overtone needed.

I was able to pick up volumes 1-4 at the library but read the 5th on Hoopla and the sixth again from the library. When the last was released and available on Hoopla before my library got their copies, I couldn't wait for the conclusion so I downloaded it. I don't know if it's an AI who handles the zooms and transitions as you scroll from pages to panels into speech bubbles and sfx but it's actually a lot of fun to experience. I'm assuming it's in the printed version but if it's not, the hoopla version has the final script with the Lemire's notes including "Make it trippy, Andrea" which I enjoyed. Plus a breakdown of the innerworkings of Gideon Falls which includes: the mulitverse map, the barn, and the center of the universe. My one critique is more of a wish; if they ever adapt the series to another medium, I hope we spend some more time in the center to flesh out how they knew as much as they did when the other versions of themselves don't seem to spend anymore time outside the center to have the right knowledge sets.

What does the end panel mean? It was a cryptic and a bit disappointing ending but then again it was predictable. Not the worst end but not the greatest either and some panels were super confusing, overall an okayish series which mixes so many things but ends up losing its way in the middle with revelations but the character and the villain was unique. Enjoyed it regardless!

    I very much enjoyed Gideon Falls at the beginning, but I have to say that I am not a huge fan of the second half of the series. Although I preferred this volume to the precedent, it still feels kind of forced, it doesn’t flow as well as volumes 1-3. The art is still greatly weird and definitely puts you out of your comfort zone, and Lemire is a great character writer, although his dialogues aren’t great in this book.

    3.5 - I've enjoyed this title, and would recommend it, but I didn't know what the ending meant or the logic of how we got here. As I've said before, incredible art and design, genuinely unsettling atmosphere. Lemire is great. The earlier volumes with the alternate universes and character background were fantastic but, overall, I can't help but wish the centre of the evil in the plot had been explained by some relatable event linked to the characters.

    A okay ending to a otherwise great, weird, and fucked up series. This is only about 80 pages of story. You have all the protagonists coming to face this demon/monster. A lot of trippy moments here, some really cool ways to do the art as well. I enjoyed the look into family and helping one another. The main "Villain' was easily finished off though and the zinger ending didn't do TOO much for me. But still it was entertaining and looked great.

    This has been one of my favourite graffic novel series in a while and I've lived each installment as its come out. It's both followed and kicked over comic and science fiction conventions in equal measure. That said I don't know whether to be disappointed by its ending or not. Its kind of surprising in a not surprising kind of way. So for now ⭐⭐⭐, we'll see if it earns another ⭐ after a full reread of the series at a later date.

    A good conclusion to a very unique comic run. This story had all kinds of things - horror, time-travel, alternate universes, philosophy, and mystery. Having finished the series, I can't say I truly understood the story all the time, but I still enjoyed the journey. Oh and Sorrentino's artwork for this series is the stuff of nightmares - in a good way. A good conclusion to a very unique comic run.

    The only way they could have ended it. For the last issue/vol being 80 pages, it sure went by quick! The art is fantastic through the whole thing and the fact that they never lost the momentum of the story is kinda of wild! I really enjoyed this one. I hope this team does something else together. And honestly, this was the only way they could have ended the series.

    Excellent ending. At the end of 26 it is hard to believe that it can all wrap up. The ending actually reminds me a bit of Paper Girls with the obvious difference being time travel/timelines vs multiverse. I was very satisfied with the ending and think they possibly even left the door open a smidgen for a follow-up series, but I would leave it just the way that it is.

    The pacing of a single-issue final volume was a terrible decision that sapped all momentum heading into a very anticlimactic ending. A beautiful but empty and unsatisfying finale to a series I really enjoyed.
