Excitement over Gideon Falls

So far, I've been loving the covers of Jeff Lemire, Andrea Sorrentino, and Dave Stewart's "Gideon Falls" from Image, here they are all together:

The overhead view is awesome.

Inside issue 4 I saw adouble-page spread from Sorrentino that blew me away, and shows off the abilities of the medium of sequential art. I showed it to my wife and we marveled at the execution:

This supernatural/loss of faith story is intriguing and deliberately paced. I was waiting for a few more months of cool map covers before talking about it, but this spread is incredible.

The narrative spreads up and down simultaneously in two places shown on different faces of a cube. A master class could be done on art like this.
