Black Falcon is the altruistic legacy hero with an affinity for the classic super-hero chic (silly catchphrases and puns included) and no powers to boot. Sidekick (that's his name, not his title) is conversely a self-centered, short-tempered, super-powered badass (self-proclaimed, of course). Together, they get themselves caught up in the insanity that is naturally associated with a world of super-heroes and super-villains. The comics is primarily a humor/adventure comic touching on and subverting common genre tropes. Its influences range everywhere from super-hero comics (obviously) to sci-fi movies, novels, video games, world mythologies and anything else that I deem cool. My intention is that the amalgamation of all these influences congeal into something with a unique narrative voice that doesn't take itself too seriously. Paired with kick-ass artwork (self-proclaimed, of course) hopefully this fosters a combination of something new and refreshing in a genre that's nearing a century in popular culture.
