Growing up reading about superheroes, of course, I always wanted to be one, who wouldn’t? Well with Faith we have a superhero that grew up with similar passions to find out one day that she, in fact, does have powers. Faith is a psiot, with the ability to fly and move objects with her mind. Being relatively new to the superhero game she still has a lot to learn, but the adventure along the way sure is fun.
Faith as a series never takes itself too seriously and always has a good laugh along the way. Making this comic an easy read and one that many can relate to in some way. With Faith #10 we have a great jumping on point for new readers. With a perfect intro on the first page, you get just enough information to know what is going on. Of course, you should go read the backlog if you enjoy it, there is a lot of good back there as well.
Throughout this issue, we see Faith in her day to day routines. From stopping her first car chase, with a Yoda dream sequence of course, to playing D&D with her friends. In between all of this, there is something afoot! With many of Faith’s past villains seemingly coming together to form “The Faithless” *cue supervillain pose*. Once again the levity portrayed by Houser really makes this a lot of fun to read.
Eisma art is the perfect fit for this story, with it feeling a bit on the cartoony side, but in a good way. Sauvage contributes all of the dream panels in this issue, all beautiful of course. I am a serious fan of Sauvage’s art style, it’s just so clean and appealing. Overall this is a solid art team delivering a great issue.
In all Faith #10 is a fun new reader friendly comic book. If you enjoy some humor in your comics along with the inevitable pop culture references, this book is for you. It’s always nice to take a break from life and just have a good laugh, Faith delivers that with ease.
