Faith #1

Title: Faith #1: Faith Begins Valiant Comics By Jody Houser, Francis Portela, and Marguerite Sauvage Posted on Crystal's Game Review Blog

Faith is a spinoff comic about a woman named Faith Herbert who had developed telekinetic abilities. She is able to fly and physically move objects. She joined a Superhero group called the Renegades to fight evil, but at the start of the comic, she had left the group in order to explore who she really is. She moved away from all of her friends, and started a new life on the West Coast as a pop culture blogger under the identity Summer Smith.

The comic starts a plotline right away, tieing the reader into wanting to figure out what is going on. Then we move onto Faith’s life and catch glimpses of her in her day to day activities. During the day, she continually has run ins with her past, including an ex that has a reality show. Her superhero identity, Zephyr, is rather well known, and is one of the driving stories for the blog that Faith writes for. Overall, Faith’s life is fairly similar to many of our own in those respects. Even her superhero identity isn’t over the top or zealous, but rather someone who understands what her job is, even if it is just puppies.

Overall, the starting comic for Faith does a good job in catching the reader up with some of the backstory for Faith. The reader will get to know the character Faith and how she interacts with the world. You get to see her daydreams, her heart breaks, and see how she misses her friends. She’s doing what she needs to move forward. Readers will also get to see her powers, and how she uses them, and how that kicks off her path down into the plot thread that was at the beginning of the comic.

Lastly, the amazing thing about this comic, and the one that drew me to it, was the fact that Faith is a plus sized superhero. She is portrayed as a normal woman facing normal things. She has dreams and fantasies, she dates, she has men she’s attracted to. And she doesn’t lament continually on her size. In fact, it is never even mentioned, even by the supporting characters. Even her costume is done well, and is practical for superhero fighting with a bit of flair. Her health and weight are not up for discussion in the comic, and as someone who is larger, that is important to me.

So, dear reader, I highly recommend Faith to everyone. Her character and the treatment of her identity is well done and her story is engaging and interesting. I look forward to reviewing her other stories in the future.

Divinity Trade
by Aric C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/27/2017 09:16:16

This is the type of book that makes you a fan of not just the creative team, but the entire universe within which it exists. Divinity is packed with lush art that is both clear and evocative, setting a very clear stage for one of the more thought-provoking stories in the medium. The story introduces concepts that are both alien and familiar and then executes on them in ways that you wouldn't expect. The reactions of the world to the events feel authentic and unforced, and it serves as a spectacular introduction the the current Valiant universe. If you follow no other books from Valiant, you won't be lost - although fully part of that world, it also stands alone in a way that complements the universe within which it resides.

A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong Volume 1: In The Bag
by Aric C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/27/2017 09:10:50

Easily one of the most fun books out there today, Archer & Armstrong has quickly become one of my favorites. This is, at its core, the ultimate odd couple pairing, and the ridiculousness of the situations in which the duo find themselves are a great backdrop to their love/hate relationship. If you enjoyed the original run, or were ever a fan of Quantum & Woody of the recent run of Power Man & Iron Fist, then this is the book for you.
