Faith, one of Valiant Comics' flagship superheroes, is taking on some Christmas cheer with a holiday special from the publisher, and we've got an exclusive look at the first five pages.
Eisner Award and Russ Manning Award-nominated writer Marguerite Sauvage (FAITH, Shade the Changing Girl) will take the helm of Faith's Winter Wonderland Special #1, the first holiday special for the hero. Sauvage is joined by artists Francis Portela and MJ Kim, along with covers from herself, Paulina Ganuchau, and variant covers by Sibylline Meynet and David Lafuente.
From the publisher:
As cheer fills the air, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert is about to take a trip down the rabbit hole… and into a mind-bending winter wonderland where every day is something special! But hiding behind the tinsel, all is not what it seems… White rabbit meets red-nosed reindeer as Faith squares off against a realm of make-believe and merriment for a whimsical flight of superhero fancy!
Faith has made some serious waves in the world of comics since her re-introduction last year. The comic has garnered praise from critics and fans alike and has earned the ongoing series a string of award nominations.
The series follows Faith Herbert, a nerdy young woman with a love of comics and other pop culture, who develops the ability to fly, using it to become her own kind of superhero: Zephyr. Much of the praise for the book has come from the fact that Faith, as the only plus-sized superhero headlining her own story, has created a body positive hero we all can look up to.
Faith's Winter Wonderland Special #1 hits shelves on December 6th. Check out a first look at the fantasy adventure below.
