Gideon Falls by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino has already won the 2019 Eisner Award for “Best New Series” and now its about to get a one-hour TV adaption courtesy of James “Aquaman’ Wan, his Atomic Monster production company and Hivemind. Rob Hackett will oversee for Atomic Monster. Surely this one-hour special will act as a pilot for a possible series? After all, Hivemind have a pretty inpressive roster of shows and movies on there slate infusing Netflix’s The Witcher series and Weird Fantasy based on the old pre-Comics Code Authority EC Comics.
Sound interesting? Well, here’s what you need to know about the series, with Volume 1 available now from Image Comics, for those wanting to bone up on the story in advance.
An atmospheric thriller colliding rural mystery and urban horror, the series follows an ensemble cast of seemingly random strangers — a washed-up Catholic priest, an uncompromising female sheriff, and a young recluse obsessed with unraveling a conspiracy buried in his city’s trash — as they become drawn into a mystery connected to a long-forgotten local legend.
As this is the first we’re hearing about the deal, don’t hold your breath, as these things can take time. But, we will be keeping an eye out for any further updates for you as the months roll on.
