    Falcon #4 is certainly worth the read. It amazingly tells this first arc well and doesn't beat you over the head with the "Hey I used to be Captain America" plotline. It actually uses it as a thing that could cause the death of Sam if he doesn't get past it. Combine that with the battle of worthiness both he and Rayshaun go through AND amazing artwork, this series is still worthy of being in your pull list. If you haven't read the first 3 issues, definitely check them out and be sure to check out this one as well as Falcon #5 coming soon! Read Full Review

    With the end to ‘Take Flight' part four, Falcon #4 was a powerful issue for everything that is at stake in this fight against Blackheart. Identity came into question, the idea of what it means to be a hero, and how to rise to the occasion when there are people who depend on you. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Keith Reid-Cleveland Feb 1, 2018

    Following the formula of poignant emotional development, a clear-cut conflict, and a depth of a supporting cast appear to be the winner with Sam Wilson stories. As long as Barnes sticks close to that, outside of the obvious experimentation for the sake of growth, this series should be fine. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Feb 2, 2018

    Falcon hasnt gone the direction I was originally hoping it would go, but this strange take on the Winged Avengers adventures has definitely gotten into a groove I can enjoy. Plus, Cassara and Rosenberg really bring it in the art section. This one gets a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Deep thoughts, strong characterization and a handful of welcome guest stars make for a pretty good read. Read Full Review

    This was my favorite issue in this arc. Barnes is really digging deep with Falcon. I didn't know if the paranormal and magical space of Marvel was for Sam Wilson. Though Barnes sets up Falcon as a man willing to go however far he needs. Sam Wilson is still the Captain America willing to go and say the things that Steve Rodgers doesn't and using a demon as Falcon's first major foe has really been impressive. The art in this book comes out great and Cassara really shines at creating hell and my hope is that Brother Voodoo continues to be a presence in this book in the next major arc. My only problem with this run is that I think Patriot can be a little over the top with his young black slang and one-liners. Aside from that, I love this book a more

    Now that was a very good issue. I liked it very much. It's nice to see Hellstorm just after the end of Spirit of vengeance.
    He did have issue with his father in the same time between Sam Soul & Necrodamous plan ^^
    I was a little sad for Two Gun Kid. I prefer the other Falcon than Patriot.
    And he has to have his mother to go on with the mission. Man the other patriot would have jump in the action right away

    Cover : One I like & in link 2/2
    Writing : I really love the father son talk 3/3
    Arts : Still good & gooder in hell 2/3
    Feeling : Some like in the Dark 1/2

    Sam has to fight through an identity crisis to escape Hell. While it feels terribly goofy at first glance, the longer I look at it, the more impressed I am. Rodney Barnes's script does a great job of raising the stakes on Sam's "who am I" worries, using the threat of damnation to make them much more than self-indulgent angst-for-the-sake-of-angst. It also helps that Mr. Barnes ambitiously tackles older identity issues (like "Snap" Wilson, yowza) in addition to Sam's recent conflicts with Steve Rogers. Joshua Cassara's gritty art still works great at portraying a violence-torn Chicago and now it does equally good work conjuring up a memorable Hell. This issue really locks the arc down as a perceptive and transformative portrait of Sam Wilson more
