    Overall, issue #7 of Falcon is the one you should pull out if you want to turn someone onto the series. The motivations are clear, the action is kickass, and the roster goes deep. Read Full Review

    I hate turning on Falcon #7 like this. Sam Wilson is in my Marvel Top 5, and I tried to champion this series because the first six issues were generally quite good. However, I now find myself unable to wholeheartedly recommend this comic. I can tentatively, at best, say you would enjoy it if youre as devoted to Sam as I, or you just want a gorgeous and ultraviolent vampire comic with Misty Knight and/or Blade. Beyond that, I cant really recommend this one. This was a large disappointment. Read Full Review

    Beyond a handful of engaging panels, there's little here to compel interest in the next issue or even the next page. Read Full Review

    As we fully move into the second arc of Sam Wilsons solo book, the characterization of Both Sam and Lucas for me have come to resemble a powerful Batman and Robin sort of vibe, albeit with less development simply because its only been 7 issues.

    I can't particularly pin down why, but I am loving the supernatural take that Barnes is using on this book, and Cabrol's wondrous art makes the vampire fight scenes feel the right amount of creepy and rad as hell. The only real complaint I have with this issue is the lack of dialogue in comparison to action. Hopefully this will change in the coming issues, and balance out.

    I also really hope this book doesn't get lost in the wave of Marvel fresh start titles, I love Sam Wilson, more

    Falcon as a character has gone through a lot and paid a high price for Marvel walking back their diversity in the line-up. Sam leads a great book as Captain America and really confronted other experiences of people in America, and now he is no longer Captain America, no longer leading the Avengers or is on the team at all. His book is being canceled and the only real hope for the character insight is if he gets added back into the Captain America book that Coates will be writing and that many are already in arms about just because of who Coates is, but we are here now so on to the review.

    Quality wise this book has every right to continue as it offers an interesting take on this story. I am happy to see blade make an appearance more

    Not a bad book at all, but Falcon has lost a lot of the luster that was in the first arc. The art doesn't seem as well done and the story is not as enticing. Like I said though, it's still enjoyable.

    A simple vampire-fighting story is ennobled by two solid character scenes. Sam promising Shaun's mother to keep him safe gives the front half much-needed emotional depth. Misty shutting down Blade's romantic interest is clever and fun. The word-light action scenes are competent but don't stick much in your memory, and Deacon Frost's plan falls into the depths of badguy cliches. The content on the page is satisfying and entertaining, but building it up into something more than an average-plus comic relies too much on the enthusiasm of a charitable reader.
