    I'll be honest. I love this comic. I feel very connected to Faith as a person, especially when she thought, "I guess I never really fit the mold. The things I like, the way I look." This thought of hers definitely resounds with geeks worldwide, but it doesn't just have to be about us nerds out there. Anyone could have this thought about anything. She's so relatable that the superhero gig is the icing on the cake. I want more of this comic. I want more people to read this comic. I want to thank Valiant for producing this comic and the creative team that developed it. Faith is one of the freshest comics I've read in a long time. I want to see more comics like this.

    Overall, Her Greatest Enemy is a fantastic issue and lives up to its name, even if it doesnt seem so at first. Chris Chriswell and Faith play off each other well and Im excited to see whats in store for the next issue (hopefully, Archer will make a brief appearance). I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Aug 23, 2016

    Overall, this is yet another fantastic issue that takes what could otherwise be a fairly generic situation – a supervillain capturing a hero for nefarious means – and puts an unmistakably Faith-y stamp on it. Charming, relatable, funny and with a worthy message at its core about never feeling the need to change yourself to please people around you, Faith continues to be one the most fiercely likeable superhero comics on the shelves today.

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Aug 25, 2016

    Overall it was a pretty good second issue. I really like where this series is heading. Faith is in very capable hands with Jody House and I look forward to reading the next issue. I'm excited that we are getting so many series with the Harbinger characters, with Faith, Generation Zero and in November a new Harbinger series which I do believe that Faith will be a part of. I would recommend adding this one to your buy pile. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Logan Dalton Aug 24, 2016

    Faith #2 is filled with familiar superhero story beats, but Jody Houser, Pere Perez, and Marguerite Sauvage continue to develop Faith into a multi-faceted heroine filled with enthusiasm, warmth, and some doubts so you won't even notice while you're enjoying the comic. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Aug 23, 2016

    I used thisJody Houser quote in my review of the first issue, but it's a great quote, so I'll end with it today: “[Faith] represents a group of people not featured in comics very often is important, but its not the most interesting thing about her. People want to see themselves in comics, but they dont want to see a character who is just one aspect of themselvesthey want to see a fully-fledged person. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Amy Okamoto Aug 23, 2016

    Faith #2 is a solid book. Humor, heroism, and attractive art combine to make this story shine. Houser ties this book into earlier appearances and sets upthe next chapter well. With the unveiling of her new enemy, this will be a must-have book for Faith fans. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Aug 26, 2016

    Under less skillful hands, this issue of a superhero in the villain's clutches could have been overwrought and cliched. Instead, true to Faith's character, it's fun, heroic, and self-aware. 'Faith' made superheroes fun again and it didn't take a whole company relaunch to do it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Laramie Martinez Aug 29, 2016

    This issue has great art, decent pacing, and intriguing plot developments. It struggles in the beginning, telling us more than it shows, but by the end of the issue, there is a sense of beginning. Houser is still finding her feet, and that shows in this issue. But overall the issue is still a good time. There is a lot of hope in this issue, and I think it provides a lot of hope for the series. As I was reading, I kept thinking, "This is how it starts, this is how the story begins." Now we get to see where it goes. Read Full Review
