I first posted this here three years ago but with I figured with Batman's anniversary it's worth another look. On a related note, Comixology is having a huge Batman sale right now (750 issues for 99 cents a piece) and this story is one of them.

CAPTAIN AMERICA #276-278 contained a three part backup story called "Snapping" about Sam Wilson and his time as "Snap" Wilson. It isn't really a Falcon story, as Sam is only the Falcon in one panel. It is also by the same writer, J.M. DeMatteis, and artist, Mike Zeck, as the main story.

J.M. DeMatteis wrote "The Death of the Red Skull" saga that went to CAPTAIN AMERICA #300. CAPTAIN AMERICA #294 covers a small but important part, where Steve Rogers wants to talk to Bernie Rosenthal about their relationship.

The art is by Paul Neary, who gives everything a very strong Steve Ditko vibe.

Bernie knows melodramatic acting )

"[This book is] trying to point out that life doesn't end at grim and gritty. A little fun never hurt anyone." - Keith Giffen

A bit more from issue 1...



"Well, it’s Giffen-DeMatteis-Maguire doing what we do: high adventure through a lens of what I like to call neo-vaudeville. Lee and Kirby by way of Woody Allen and Monty Python, all of it rooted, first and foremost, in the characters. That said, this is a very different group—there’s no Beetle or Booster in sight—so they’ll dictate the tone as much as we do." - J.M. DeMatteis

"Absolutely. Why mess with what works? Now I know there are certain, quite vocal, folks out there who want their comics grim and gritty and heart attack serious and bleak and wretched but those aren't the readers we're shooting for." - Keith Giffen

The break-out character from Geoff Johns' Green Lantern run explodes into avaricious action in his own brand-new series!



'Larfleeze is a chance to do a fun comic book, surrounding him with new characters, new villains, new ideas, new sections of the galaxy. New, new, new, new, new, new, new.

'I guarantee six major, new, cosmic villains in the first 12 issues, as well as alien worlds and all kinds of craziness with Larfleeze.'

'And fun. No deep thoughts, no misdirection or trickery. You just come in, there's Larfleeze and look! He's having an adventure, with a bunch of exciting new characters and concepts. At the end of the book, you say, "Yeah, I had a good time reading that book."'
