4.0 out of 5 stars Falcon spreads his wings., 19 April 2014
This review is from: Avengers: Falcon: (Paperback)
Falcon spreads his wings..
I read a library copy of the paperback.
I have always quite liked the Falcon and with his debut on the big-screen I presume he’s never been more popular.
He’s never been very ‘A’ list and never really been much of a draw for readers, so this Falcon trade is not really an embarrassment of riches...
What is collected here is presented in a very strange order, the Falcon 4 part mini-series gets main billing and the lead position in this trade, but being then followed by the Falcon’s origin tale seems a bit disjointed. Adding to that lack of cohesion is the fact that the first two issues running up to the Falcon’s debut are not reproduced, even though their storyline is quite important, giving even the origin tale a feeling that the reader has been dropped into an already running story.
I would have liked to see the whole of the tale, pre-Falcon as well as those here, I would also have liked to see, if only as a text piece, the explanation of how and when the Falcon changed his costume and got his wings included.
The various solo-Falcon issues or back-ups are of obvious interest but are hardly the Falcon’s greatest moments, they could have added more and gone for a larger tome or two volumes, especially if they had added Falcon’s short original tenure with the Avengers which was a big thing in it’s day.
There is some good art here, Gene Colan, early Paul Smith and some more run of the mill stuff otherwise.
I quite liked Falc recently in the Heroes For Hire series and he held his own remarkably well in the Brubaker era of Captain America.
He deserves a quality product, this isn’t really it but it does show his potential.
