    I love so many moments in this book--I think it might be the best of the arc. Read Full Review

    I definitely liked the drunk cat part. I guess having a black cat of my own made it personally humorous. I enjoyed this issue more than the last few. There was a bit of a downturn with Faith struggling personally and the lack of movement in the story. This issue brought the action back along with Faith's determination. It's good to see her not doubting herself and ready to kick some bad guy ass! Read Full Review

    FAITH #12 is a hilarious team-up issue that features the hero matching wits with some off-beat villains. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Jun 10, 2017

    There has been a problem with diversity in comics. Recently a company was criticized when someone said basically that the comics with comics featuring women, or minorities don't sell and they would return to selling their classic characters. Faith is proof that the key to selling these characters is really easy, well written stories. Regardless of the size and gender of the main character this has been a great fun superhero book, that I honestly would buy even if it wasn't a Valiant book. It has been a really great book and when the character returns in Faith and the Future Force, I will be buying, and so should you! Read Full Review

    I like it when the creative team (writer Jody Houser and artist Joe Eisma) come up with a creative approach to a straightforward adventure story. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jun 8, 2017

    Though Valiant Entertainment is mainly known for high-flying action and gritty science fiction, Faith continues to shine by leading with its heart instead of its fists. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jun 9, 2017

    'Faith' as a series is an exceptional example of what makes comics fun and entertaining. This is why Faith deserved a better series finale than this. It's funny and Faith is as brilliant and likable as ever but the weak ending underserves this great title. Regardless, 'Faith' is a shot in the arm to the superhero genre that delivers unadulterated joy and optimism.  Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Jun 7, 2017

    There are mixed emotions about this final issue. While it does end the conflict with the Faithless " for now, it left a lot of room for things to continue. My issue with that is that it leaves a bit too much open. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Jun 9, 2017

    Overall Faithless has had its moments but was not up to the same level as the previous arcs for this series. Part of the problem is how incomplete Chris Chriswell feels as a character. Faith comments that he is her Lex Luther to her Superman but he has not earned that moniker as of yet. There is no doubt how well the Faith character has been developing since her first mini last year. For this series to take the next step better or more complete villains need to be created so she can have proper foils to face off against. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 8, 2017

    With Faith set to headline her own summer event book in the coming months, it makes sense for Jody Houser to conclude her latest arc with as few lingering strings possible. Unfortunately, the brisk wrap up makes for an unsatisfying end to The Faithless' first super-villain team-up. Read Full Review

    If you've heard good things about Faith and you want to check the series out, then start with either of the first issues from the mini or this series. Just don't start here, because the most exciting thing about this issue was the preview text. And it grieves me to say that about one of my favourite series. Read Full Review
