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.
This one True Journal, forged in the fires of Mt. Disney, was made as a special test printing before wide release, so it has no edition number. Completely one of a kind. Alex has the only copy- and it could be yours! Link to donate!

I was lucky number to get a copy of the special edition of Journal 3. But did you really expect anything less? Especially considering the size of these pictures. They literally took the time to wrap it in thick paper and label it like it was a forbidden document, and wrap it with a twine bow. It was a sight to behold.
