Valiant’s “Faith” Flies Solo in New Ongoing Series from Houser, Perez & Sauvage

This July, Jody Houser, Pere Perez and Marguerite Sauvage will kick off “Faith’s” first ongoing series at Valiant Entertainment. The character is hot off her recent four-issue miniseries, which sold out a total of five times.

“Faith” #1 will hit stores on July 20, boasting covers from acclaimed artists such as Kevin Wada, Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic, Cary Nord, Emanuela Lupacchino, Kano, Colleen Coover and series artist Pere Perez. “Faith Vol. 1: Hollywood and Vine” by Houser, Sauvage and Francis Portela — which collects the original limited series — will also bow in July.

For more on Valiant Entertainment’s new “Faith” ongoing, stay tuned with CBR for an exclusive in-depth interview with Houser about the series.

“Since Faith’s solo debut hit stands, no matter where we’ve turned — from conventions to comic shops to social media — fans all over the globe have called on Valiant to further Faith’s adventures beyond four issues alone,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Now that day has come, and we’re proud to say that Faith’s journey will continue in 2016 and beyond. Jody Houser, Francis Portela and Marguerite Sauvage did a masterful job introducing Faith to a whole new audience, and now we’re glad to welcome Valiant-exclusive artist and extraordinarily talented storyteller Pere Perez to the Faith family for her first ongoing series — a benchmark achievement if there ever was one.”

“Faith isn’t just a superhero anymore. In a very short time, she’s become a true pop culture phenomenon,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Finally, the world is realizing what we at Valiant have known all along: that in a medium populated by characters that can often seem dark and cynical, Faith represents a ray of hope and optimism that resonates far beyond the printed page alone. She truly is a hero in every sense of the word and, at her core, she represents the best that superheroes and comics as a whole have to offer to the world.”

According to the official series description,

In a city under siege by robots, aliens, monsters and, even worse, celebrities, there is only one woman the people of Los Angeles can count on: the stratospheric superhero called Faith! Aspiring reporter by day and dedicated crime-fighter by night, Faith has tackled every obstacle in her path with confidence — like those crushing deadlines at work, the long-distance boyfriend half a world away, and the missing back issues that plague her comics collection! But, unbeknownst to her, Faith is about to collide with the one force she never saw coming: an up-and-coming super-villain bent on snuffing her out once and for all! But who is lurking behind the mask of her new foe…and could they be the one person capable of rendering Faith powerless?
