‘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 […]

Marvel Legacy Falcon #1 Review: He’s Still My Captain America

Sam Wilson was and is my Captain America. The Winter Soldier is my favorite Marvel hero, but Sam Wilson is my Captain America. While I loved Bucky’s tenure as Captain America in Ed Brubaker’s series, he wasn’t fit for the role. He was too bitter and unsure of how he fit into the legacy. That […]


Secret Empire #5 Review – Just Not Good Super Hero Fiction

Now, even though I am Bleeding Cool’s “Secret Empire is actually pretty good” guy, doesn’t mean I think the series is perfect. It has its flaws, and one of my first two articles for BC was my review of #2, which was a comic that could basically be summed up with “Hey, don’t forget to […]

Secret Empire #4 Review: Ditches Fascism, Becomes Enjoyable Read
