    Lastly, the best thing about this issue is that we may have gotten the deepest look into the Sam Wilson"Misty Knight relationship yet and I'm here for all of that. Let's see this relationship become healthy and stable"by superhero standards"and flourish by any means necessary. Read Full Review

    Falcon #6 is the start of another story with potential as we have another opportunity to further explore the person we know as Sam Wilson. The best thing about a solo book like this is the ability to see what these characters have to offer on their own, and at the same time it is also what can come off addressing the importance of the person behind the mask. Rayshaun's part in this issue was small, but it was worthwhile to see that on his own he is learning the same thing. Read Full Review

    Not that readers will need any additional incentives to try this book at this point in the story arc, but the fact that Misty Knight enters the story here and that her history is neatly packaged for folks unfamiliar with her Black girl majesty, simply makes this book and the entire series that much better. For readers (or film goers) who may think of the Falcon as a derivative character by nature " or creation, this series is being written in a way to deliberately disabuse us all of that notion.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 14, 2018

    Falcon launches into his second story arc with a spookier, more serious tone and a more modern pace. There's a tiny twinge of disappointment in saying goodbye to the over-stuffed scripts of previous issues. We've got cool vampires and interesting supporting cast developments to look forward to - but I worry that this title's unique, idiosyncratic voice might be slipping away. Read Full Review

    At the start of its second arc, nothing in Falcon improves, and what little charm there was is lost to some exceedingly disappointing decisions. Read Full Review

    Issue 8 of Falcon is a solid set up for the next arc of this series. Though it is better to read this book from the start this is a solid jumping on point for Falcon. Mostly we are getting the players set up for the next phase. The art is consistent in Falcon and the darker color some actually suits the book. More and more we see Falcon moving to the street level and what is special about this series is the use of real world issues being exploited by supernatural forces. That attitude continues in this arc where Frost uses invisible forgotten people as pawns in his games to take down Falcon. Barnes has a real skill at grounded high heroics with the real world issues we face without getting preachy.

    While Deacon Frost revs up his antagonist engines, Sam and Shaun play romantic games (not with each other). Their line-to-line progress is pretty sweet, but by the end of the issue, a surprisingly small amount of ground has been covered. The visuals are deceptively quiet. All they do is match up with the prior artist and carry the story forward with a horror-comic twist - and that's actually a much bigger achievement than you might think. This issue is more than moderately satisfying, but there's also a distinct air of unfulfilled potential.
