Preview: Faith #1
Valiant presents your first look inside FAITH #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the the year’s high-flying new limited series from rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) and explosive artists Francis Portela (Green Lantern) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Bombshells)! On January 27th, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert is charging to the forefront of the Valiant Universe for a blockbuster-scale adventure packed with spectacular super-heroics, alien intrigue, and global stakes!
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 her into harm’s 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 a full-blown extraterrestrial invasion, will Faith find herself in over her head…or ready for her biggest challenge yet?
On January 27th, find out why L.A.’s newest guardian is shooting for greatness…and already breaking out with fans and critics as one of the most talked-about heroes of the New Year:
