One thing of note about the new Falcon series is Rodney Barnes, who is a black writer and producer of shows such as My Wife and Kids, Everybody Hayes Chris and the Boondocks.
He’s got something coming out from Image soon as well, Killadelphia.
As much as Marvel have went overboard their line with ‘diversity’ of characters (ie replacing a bunch of their characters) the diversity of staff needle hasn’t moved much other than a few more female writers and artists.
It always interests me when a black writer takes on a black mainstream character as I always feel we will get a different perspective on things.
So, although I wasn’t originally looking to buy this, I might pick up the first issue today to see how Barnes gets on.
