Faith #1 Hits Spotlight


Faith #1 is right around the corner and it's getting all sorts of attention. The limited series by Jody Houser, Francis Portela and Marguerite Savage features the breakout start of Harbinger and has been recognized in works such as People Magazine, The Washington Post, MTV, Seventeen Magazine, Mashable, Mic and many more. All ahead of the series' January 27th release.

"I've been hearing from women who are in their 20s and 30s and 40s who have been reading comics for decades who have never seen a woman on the cover of a comic that looks like them," series writer Jody Houser told People. "And I think [Faith] makes people feel like they're welcome in comics, and that this medium is for them, when, maybe they've always loved comics but they haven't felt welcome before is a huge thing."

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 Zephyr ever thought when she 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?

Full press release below.
