Fighting Crime Turns Out To Be A Pretty Big Hassle In ‘Faith’ #1 [Preview]
Listen, fighting crime is a huge pain. If it wasn't, everybody would have their own rocket car and a belt full of little metal boomerangs they could throw at thematic bank robbers. Sadly, the day that we achieve a perfect crimefighting utopia is far off, and in the meantime, bringing down the bad guys can be a pain even if you've got plenty of super-powers. And that, friends and neighbors, seems to be the lesson that Faith Herbert is learning as she breaks out into her own high-flying ongoing series.
After debuting in the pages of Harbinger and making her way through a self-titled miniseries that saw her making her way in Los Angeles as a pop culture blogger and aspiring superhero, Faith is back, and she's about to learn that for some reason, the cops don't like it when you just basically throw a guy in a ski mask at them and tell them to send him to San Quentin. Check out a preview from Faith #1 by Jody Houser, Pere Pérez and Marguerite Sauvage below!

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 just be the one person capable of rendering Faith powerless?
