Gravity Falls: Lost Legends by Alex HirschSquee! 4 new tales from Gravity Falls featuring all our favourite characters! *fangirls*
I love Gravity Falls, watched it so many times and I will keep on watching it over and over again (and wishing I could buy the bluray of it), so I was delighted that we got a new book featuring new stories.
These stories are told by someone who is an even bigger fan than most of us, and he is an unexpected fan, Shmebulock! I can hear the fans already ask me, but Mehsi, Shmebulock cant talk! Indeed he cant, but for one day in a thousand years (yeah, I dont want to know how old Shmebulock actually is) he can talk! He has taken today as the day to tell us some untold stories.
There are 4 stories. The first one features Mabel, Dipper, Pacifica as mains with bonus Stan and Ford. The second one features Mabel, Dipper, Ford, Stan, Soos, and Wendy. The third is about Mabel, Stan, Ford, and oh yes a bit of Dipper. And the last? The last takes us back to the past as we see Ford and Stan together as kids.
I just adored reading the stories, I am not sure which one is my favourite, I am saying all of them. The first one was fun with Pacifica, and I am definitely still shipping her with Dipper (just like Mabel is doing later on, muahahaha). I loved seeing some more of Gravity Falls, and then especially the place the weirdness disappears to at day. The monster stealing your faces was just creepy as hell (I wouldnt want to meet that guy in a dark alley, or wait, any place).
The second one was also fun, especially when we saw the characters in various drawing styles (my favourite being the manga one). We also find out some more about Stan, which I loved.
The third brought a whole new dimension with it, one that I wouldnt mind visiting. I loved meeting all the Mabels and see what kinds there are. Plus I had a bit of a laugh at Ford and Stan trying to discuss who knew the kids the best.
And the last one brought us back to the past, see more of Stan and Ford when they were kids. Of course this one also features weirdness, but also tons of mystery. Stan had the right idea at last, but he should think about the execution. :P
The ending, or the last page. Arggghh, dang you Alex Hirsch!
But this book is definitely meant for the fans, those who watched the show. There are various references to events, and not to mention the whole Stan and Ford thing. I would definitely recommend it to all who watched the show and want more in GF in their life.

Common Sense says
When I went to California Institute of the Arts, I was classmates with a lot of like-minded weirdoes, some of who have gone on to create other cartoon shows—J. We were all friends in school and pushed each other and made each other laugh. The Simpsons. A lot of kids shows limit themselves. They are kids shows first and shows second. The Simpsons was something that, growing up, I could tell it was smarter than I was.
I remember it so you don't have to. If you haven't noticed, I'm kind of a fan of Gravity Falls. But who can blame me? There's no bad episodes of it. NC vo, as scenes from the show play : The show about a boy and girl who spend the summer with their con artist uncle in a supernatural town has caught on like wildfire. There's cosplay, fan art, fan fiction, disturbing fan fiction [of Dipper and Mabel]. The show has touched a nerve with its hilarious writing, engaging story, and unforgettable characters.
