Gravity Falls: Lost Legends is the first official Gravity Falls comic with new original content. It was announced at D23 on July 14, 2017, at Alex Hirsch and Daron Nefcy's panel promoting Gravity Falls: Journal 3 and Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension, respectively.[4][5] It was released on July 24, 2018.[3]

Plot

The book is presented as a series of stories told by Shmebulock, who was placed under a warlock's curse to say his own name, but every thousand years, is able to speak coherently in English.

Face It

Pacifica comes by the Mystery Shack to peek at the Journals to see if there's a way to get rid of a wrinkle on her face. She summons a demon who swipes away Mabel's face, and it is up to Dipper and Pacifica to get it back.

Comix Up

Soos brings a bunch of comic books to the Mystery Shack, but Grunkle Stan locks them away in Ford's cursed chest. In a fourth-wall breaking twist, Stan finds himself trapped in a world of comics, so Dipper, Soos, Mabel, Ford and Wendy go into shifting comic styles to rescue him.

Don't Dimension It

In the aftermath of Weirdmageddon, the Pines family wander through Gravity Falls to see if there are any dimensional rifts left over. While playing with Waddles, Mabel finds herself sucked into the multiverse, where she finds herself among many different Mabels.

Pine Bros Mystery

In the year 1960-something, young Stan and Ford attempt to catch a supernatural being suspected of stealing Filbrick's precious medal.

B&N Edition

The Barnes & Nobel version of the book has an extra chapter, titled Soos's Comic Corner, narrated by Soos. It includes 16 extra pages of behind the scenes sketches and notes, detailing many of the pages, and exploring secrets within them.

    • The interdimensional trucker brings up Ford's criminal record across the multiverse as described in Journal 3.

Trivia

  • Lost Legends was originally listed as XQWLWOHG PBVWHUB ERRN (which decodes to UNTITLED MYSTERY BOOK using the Caesar cipher) on Amazon Canada.
  • The front cover was revealed via a jigsaw puzzle, made of pine trees (the same style as seen on Dipper's hat), piece by piece on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook.[2]
  • A version of Mabel resembling the character Morty from the Adult Swim series Rick and Morty is seen in the background of "Don’t Dimension It." In the Rick and Morty mobile game, "Pocket Mortys," there is a Morty who resembles Mabel Pines named "Girl Morty," who is very similar in appearance to the "Morty Mabel" seen in Lost Legends.
  • The book contains a secret code that leads to the secret site: The Shmeb you unlocked, which contains more information on various characters and small comics.
    • In one of the small comics what Dipper say can be decoded and comes out as "Cipher Lives", which is most likely a reference to the possible return of Bill Cipher
    • One of the files tells us that after the summer Tate McGucket is living with his father, Old Man McGucket, at Northwest Manor (now renamed McGucket's Hootenanny Hut)
      • It also reveals that his mother's name is Emma-May Dixon, formerly Emma-May McGucket
  • In the story "Face It" a former member of the Blind Eye Society is seen selling memory canisters belonging to various characters from the show.
    • These characters include: Tad Strange, Tambry, Abuelita and Gideon Gleeful.
    • Next to Gideon's canister, there is a tube labeled "Memories Rick S." This is likely a reference to Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty who was played by Justin Roiland.
    • There is also a canister labeled "Mrs. Corduroy," which most likely refers to Wendy Corduroy's unseen mother.
  • In "Face It", there is a wanted poster with the silhouette of the character Eda from the upcoming Disney Channel series The Owl House.
  • In "Face It", there is a face in Mr. What's-His-Face that closely resembles the screaming character from famous artist Edvard Munch's painting, "The Scream."
  • In "Face It", Pacifica lies that her name is "Jackie the Elf-Bandit" to decrease the attention from what appears to be a ogre. This name may be a reference to the person who voices Pacifica, Jackie Buscarino.
  • In "Face It", the journal Mabel is reading shows a page that is titled, "Defense of the Dark Warts", most likely a reference to J. K. Rowling's series, Harry Potter, as Harry has a class named "Defense Against the Dark Arts". As below it are two words saying, "Expecto Psoriasis" likely derived from Harry's spell to defend against dementors, "Expecto Patronum".
    • Another reference to Harry Potter may be that in the dimension MAB-3L, there is a Mabel standing with their back to the viewer (above the Mabel that looks like Pac-Man) with the Hogwart's House, Gryffinfor's, colors (red and gold). In the Barnes & Nobel edition, it is stated that that Mabel's name is Gryffindabel.
  • In "Face It", a face that looks a lot like Morty from Rick and Morty appears on Mr. What's-His-Face's wall.
  • The comic contains several elements that were not permitted in the TV series. Among these are:
    • The use of God's name in vain in phrases such as "Oh my God."
    • The use of the word "Hell."
    • Direct references to alcohol.
    • More suggestive themes, such as a character wearing a shirt with the semi-vulgar phrase "That's what she said" on it.
    • More direct cultural references, such as direct mentions of the comic character Marmaduke and the comic artist Stan Lee and a cameo from the pop culture character Slender Man.
  • The comic contains some references to the Gravity Falls fandom.
    • In the background of Schmebulock's library, there's a board reading "Shermie?", under which it says in cipher "age paradox?" and "time travel conspiracy?" which is in reference to the confusion about the baby in "A Tale of Two Stans" and its debate on the identity as Shermie due to the timeline.
    • There's also a fourth journal in the library under Dipper's original hat. Referencing the idea that there are more than 3 journals.
    • In "Face It" a creature resembling Slenderman makes an appearance trying to find money to buy Dipper and Pacifica. This is a reference to the urban legend that Slenderman appeared in "The Legend of the Gobblewonker" when it was, in fact, a result of photoshop.
    • In Journal 1 there is a page on "Paranormal Rashes", and depicts a rash that looks like Bill and is called, "Zodiacne". This is in reference to fan art depicting an adult Dipper having a tattoo of the Zodiac. Which was disproven by Hirsch himself when he said that Mabel is the most likely to get a tattoo. Which was also referenced in "Don't Dimension It" by Military Expert Mabel's 6-18 tattoo.
    • Stanbel in "Don't Dimension It" originated as a drawing on Hirsch's twitter and was jokingly drawn to "give you nightmares".
    • In "Comix Up", when Soos is in the margins, he sees the Disney label and notes how the stylized "D" looks like a "G".
  • Chronologically, the four stories in Lost Legends occur as follows:
    • Pine Bros Mystery takes place in the early-to-mid 1960s, during Stan and Ford's childhood, around 50 years before the main events of Gravity Falls in the summer of 2012.
    • Face It and Comix Up both take place in the second half of Season 2, sometime among the episodes set between "A Tale of Two Stans" (sometime in August 2012) and "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future" (August 22nd), as evidenced by Ford being present, whilst Weirdmageddon has yet to begin. The exact order or placement of the two stories in this time is unclear, though.
    • Don't Dimension It takes place during the final act of the episode "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls," in the week between Weirdmageddon ending (August 25th) and Dipper and Mabel's 13th birthday (August 31st), as noted by a direct mention of the preceding event.
