Falcon and Miles Morales Spider-Man Cancelled in June

'Falcon' and Miles Morales' 'Spider-Man' Cancelled in June

With Marvel's June solicits breaking today, two titles are notably absent from the lineup. Rodney Barnes' Falcon and the departing Brian Michael Bendis' Spider-Man (Miles Morales' book) are nowhere to be seen in the June output from the House of Ideas. Unfortunately, neither is especially surprising. The fan of the Falcon and Barnes' take on the character that I am, this book […]

This is the premise for the new Falcon comic by Rodney Barnes and Joshua Cassara.While I've been a big fan of the series so far, Falcon #1 stands out for its status as a powerful mission statement and focus on humanity While it does have its kickass moments of Sam Wilson flying in to stop criminals, it also shows him trying peaceful[...]

Falcon #2 Review: The Winged Avenger Versus The Son Of Mephisto

Falcon #2 Review: The Winged Avenger Versus The Son Of Mephisto

Something notable is how claustrophobic Joshua Cassara and Rachelle Rosenberg make the setting feel The city is burning, and the smoke keeps you from seeing open streets and grand skyscrapers It’s all blaze and ash It adds to the intensity and fondly reminds me on Ed Brubaker’s Mad Bomb arc from his later Captain America[...]
