    Falcon #3 continues to be an enjoyable read. What feels like a short edition to the series makes up for it in well written story telling and artwork that fits perfectly to what's being expressed. If you've read this series up to this point, definitely check it out. If you haven't yet, I highly recommend picking up the 2 previous issues with it. Read Full Review

    Falcon #3 showed that this is not the story you probably thought this would be. From the minute they introduced Blackheart as the villain, this became something bigger than your usual street-level problems. If there was any way to truly test the resolve of a hero like Falcon, they found the right obstacle to throw his way. Read Full Review

    This is definitely the shakiest issue of the Falcon to come out so far, but it gels more often than it doesnt. I still found myself quite enthralled with this comic, and I can confidently recommend it. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Regardless, Falcon #3 is an improvement in the series. Using a flashback to Sam's past almost always helps make him more relatable"which he could definitely use right now"and the bickering between he and his new sidekick, Patriot, sounds much more natural and reminiscent of actual conversations people have.

    When even Joshua Cassara's gritty art shines better in the supernatural-focused scenes, maybe it's time to transition this creative team to a different project. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jericho Wilson Dec 21, 2017

    This issue of Falcon was stronger in terms of plot and action. Joshua Cassara continues to shine with his sharp artwork. The narrative moved fast and didn't linger on dramatic moments at the open and close so they had more emotional impact. But the dialogue remains simplistic and the one-liners are stiff and tone-deaf. Characterization is paper thin. Rodney Barnes could be a better writer, but he has got to explore more of his cast's motivations and history in order to produce more compelling scripts. Fewer jokes and more characterization are needed ASAP. Read Full Review

    The best parts of "Falcon" are being shoved aside in service of a standard super hero story. Read Full Review
