Falcon #8 cover by Jay Anacleto and Romulo Fajardo Jr.
The Patriot himself has managed a daring escape, but Deacon Frost is hard to avoid. Falcon #8 cover by Jay Anacleto and Romulo Fajardo Jr. This is the final issue of Rodney Barnes and Joshua Cassara's Falcon title, and this finale leaves me more heartbroken than I expected What was once the gem of Marvel's Legacy line ends[...]
Falcon #1 cover by Jesus Saiz
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.

That being said, Rodney Barnes manages to justify this digression into Hell by having the Falcon forced into deciding[...]
Falcon #1
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 #1 cover by Jesus Saiz
As someone who knows there is not partisan-neutral path to the future and the myth of an apolitical comic about a man wearing a damn American flag is just that, a myth, he is the one many, myself included, desperately need right now. At the risk of resurrecting the overused Dark Knight quote, he is the[...]
