Faith is back in the second issue of her on-going series, and she’s in a whole lot of trouble. After meeting up with her favorite actor at the end of issue 1, Faith finds out that he wants to be a supervillain. Therefore he plans to kill her in order to make her a martyr, as this will inspire more heroes for him to fight. With Faith captured by this lunatic, will she get out of this situation, or will her first arch nemesis be her last?
Another fantastically crafted issue, everyone who had their hand in this book did an amazing job. It is such a fun read, and I personally call it the “Supergirl book you never knew you always wanted”. Jody Houser’s writing is once again on point, and I really love the character of the main villain. For most of the book he seems like a standard supervillain, yet reveals that much more to this character than meets the eye. The work of penciler Pere Pèrez and colorist Andrew Dalhouse together is stunning. Dalhouse’s use of colors teamed with Pèrez’s amazing art gives the book an animated look, and this really popped during the high action pieces. Valiant, please never break up this duo.
Once again, this series delivers another Grade A issue. It’s a fun superhero comic with a lovable and strong female lead, so get your hands on this book!
I give it 4 cosplaying Zephyrs out of 5!
