    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

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 4, 2018

    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 and it has earned a permanent place on my pull list.

    If Marvel ever decides to give Brother Voodoo an ongoing book again I think Barnes should be top pick.
