VALIANT'S MOST DEMANDED HERO STEPS OUT OF HARBINGER.AND INTO AN ALL-NEW ADVENTURE!

Orphaned at a young age, Faith Herbert - a psionically gifted "psiot" discovered by the Harbinger Foundation - has always aspired to greatness. But now this once ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she's always known she can be - complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws into her harms way! Well, at least she thought it would. When she's not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels' own leading superhero - the sky-soaring Zephyr!

But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought when Zephyr uncovers a deep-rooted alien conspiracy. Two-bit burglars and car thieves are one thing, but when the world needs a hero to stave off an full-blown extraterrestrial invasion, will Faith find herself in over her head.or ready for her biggest challenge yet?

Rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) and explosive artists Francis Portela (Green Lantern) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells) pilot a new chapter for the high-flying hero that People Magazine calls "a superhero we can all admire."

Collecting FAITH #1-4.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun read Cute graphic novel with a sassy, non-conforming super hero. I like that it pokes fun at the genre and our pop culture obsession. I didn't like the resolution of the story line. I felt the villains' story was a bit of a cop out. Still can't be too harsh on the title because it is meant to be a very light read and it succeeds with that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Keep Faith You will have to give "Faith" more than a chance. It starts off weak with nothing that truly engaged me, besides the fact that Faith, or Zephyr, is a superhero unlike any you've been brought up on or come to be accustomed to. She's a plus-sized female heroine, but don't let that be the only thing you identify her as. Faith has sass and spunk, and can kick some serious ass. She's also a bumbling mess at times too, and that's what eventually sparks the series - seeing the growth of this character beyond her physical attribute that is sometimes played up for the sake of it. I honestly couldn't care much for the artwork as it sometimes comes across unpolished. "Rough" was definitely my first impression of the style of the illustrations. Still, as Faith eventually finds her voice, so too will you soon be captivated by it. The series will definitely inspire as it sends a loud and clear message that superpowers come in all sizes.

Editorial Reviews

THE ATLANTIC -"Faith's return to the comic-book landscaperepresents twin achievements for the medium: an increasing willingness to tellstories featuring heroic women, and a tendency to celebrate the ways in whichthose women to deviate from (or challenge) gender norms."
