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.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Faith is a well crafted, socially relevant, and completely enjoyable story about a hero who is both pure of heart and soul. That she is also a young, overweight female with childhood issues is completely secondary. This is NOT a story about an overweight woman, this is a story about the very best of humanity standing up against the evils of our time. Faith is NOT a new character either. Valiant Entertainment did not recently create her character to appeal to a new market demographic or to make their product appear “diverse”. Faith has existed for more than two decades after first appearing in 1992’s Harbinger #1, and later led teams of superheroes when others would not or could not. The creative team of writer Jody Houser and artists Francis Portela and Marguerite Sauvage make Faith an enjoyable read and visual delight. Faith is a story that can and will inspire readers for years to come.
Valiant has done it yet again with this volume. We are treated to a stand alone story of Faith who Valiant fans will recognize from the Harbinger series. In this we see how an "untypical" super hero fits into the world and what she's capable of. The art has a different feel to it which seems to fit the character perfectly. She is a young lady who grew up reading comics about super heroes and now she IS one herself. It's an absolute joy to see how she handles this life dream turned to reality as she battles the forces of the Vine, adversaries from the X O Manowar series of Valiant books. Fans of Harbinger will also get to see more of Faith's former love interest from the group, Torque as well. This book has something for every type of comic fan and while being a GREAT read, it simply adds to the building stellar reputation of Valiant as THE comic publisher to follow today!
