Gravity Falls: Journal 3 by Alex HirschIM NOT CRYING! YOURE CRYING!!!
After several weeks of flipping through the Journal and rereading it, I think I can finally gather my thoughts enough to actually write something for this review.
To begin, I suppose that I should note the Journal is best enjoyed by people who have finished watching Gravity Falls. The first section - the Authors original notes - are enjoyable without any context, as well as Dipper and Mabels additions that they make throughout the shows run, but after that, things kind of require the context of the show to be fully understood and appreciated.
The Journal is broken down into several sections:
- the Authors original notes
- Dipper and Mabels (and occasionally Soos) additions to the Journal
- notes regarding events after the second half of season 2
- (view spoiler)[notes regarding the Authors travels in the multiverse (hide spoiler)]
- an epilogue, of sorts, to the shows final episode
Hirsch had said on Twitter that originally, hed wanted to publish the Journal with the invisible ink notes. But for some reason Disney keeps vastly underestimating the popularity of this series, and had told him theyd consider printing a second edition run with the invisible ink only if the Journal sold well.
Last I heard, book stores and Amazon were STILL needing to order more copies to meet with the demand for Journal 3.
Your move, Disney.
And who knows - after all of this, maybe well actually get those DVD releases, too.
Theyre doing a limited edition print of the Journal, with the invisible ink. And a monocle.
Bonus points if the monocle is a black light.
The more images I see from it, the more desperately I want this.

10 Hidden Clues That Will Blow Your Mind When You Revisit ‘Gravity Falls’
We bought the journal for my grandsons birthday. He loves Gravity Falls and really wanted the journal. It was one of the best gifts we've ever got for him, the book is filled with great illustrations and so much information about the show. I would recommend this book to anyone with a Gravity Falls lover it's just great! My son loves the Gravity Falls cartoon, so when he asked for this I had to get it. He was definitely not disappointed.
Created by Alex Hirsch , the series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines voiced by Jason Ritter and his twin sister Mabel voiced by Kristen Schaal who are sent to spend the summer with their great-uncle or "Grunkle" Stan voiced by Hirsch in Gravity Falls, Oregon , a mysterious town full of paranormal forces and supernatural creatures. The kids help Stan run "The Mystery Shack", the tourist trap which he owns, while also investigating the local mysteries. In , Hirsch announced that the series would finish with its second season, stating that he chose to do it for the show to end with "a real conclusion for the characters". He later stated that he remains open to continuing the series with additional episodes or specials. In February , on the second anniversary of the final episode of the show, Hirsch used a cipher to announce Gravity Falls: Lost Legends ,  a continuation of the Gravity Falls story in a new graphic novel that was later released on July 24, For their summer vacation, year-old Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel are dropped off from their home in Piedmont, California , to the fictitious town of Gravity Falls, Roadkill County, Oregon to spend the summer with their Great Uncle Stan Pines often shortened to Grunkle Stan , who runs a tourist trap called the "Mystery Shack". Things are not what they seem in this small town, and with the help of a mysterious journal that Dipper finds in the forest, they begin unraveling the local mysteries.

When Gravity Falls came out in , what seemed at first just a nostalgia-inducing yet goofy show about twins having to stay with their great-uncle or grunkle in the woods became much more than just that. Here are ten hidden clues and referencesthat will blow your mind and show you just how smartly set up the series is when you re-watch Gravity Falls. This is something he does frequently, which eventually leads to his arrest at the end of this episode for breaking the Time Traveling Code of Conduct. The thing is, Blendin can be seen throughout the entire series, even before the audience meets him. Alex Hirsch and Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland are good friends in real life—which explains why both those cartoons have made references to the other. This, naturally, invites a question: Does Gravity Falls exist in the same universe as Rick and Morty?
