    'Faith' doesn't need bombastic cliffhangers to be compelling. In fact, the sweet satisfying ending is poignant and subdued. It's more reflective and thought-provoking than you're used to and that's a good thing. Faith aspires to be more than just another superhero comic and does it effortlessly with brains and heart.

    Faith is always worth a read. It would be sort of weird to start reading Faith at issue #6 in the middle of an adventure, but I do highly recommend reading from issue #1 and just binging the six issues that are out, if you have the time. Faiths a great role model, an awesome hero, and leads a strange yet intriguing life. Theres no reason not to read Faith. Read Full Review

    I continue to like Faith as a character in general. I like how she views the world and is constantly trying to figure out her way in it. As much as it doesn't make sense, Faith doesn't toss humanity to the side. Instead, she embraces it and determined to make it better place. As we go into a new year it's a good attitude to emulate.

    Faith #6 is not a typical superhero story, but it is one that will resonate with fans, especially those weary of punch-outs and testosterone rage. The story is true to Faiths character and seems to be a stepping stone to a greater challenge. Read Full Review

    Jody Houser wraps up the "Dark Star" arc with a neat and refreshing ending. While Faith is somewhat of a predictable book, Jody Houser finds a way to make it a very pleasant and enjoyable read. Sometimes a story of morals and focusing on life experiences can make for a satisfying read. The art continues to be some of my favorite work this year. Read Full Review

    While it's always refreshing to see our heroes take the path less traveled, this one comes off as forced. Read Full Review

    GAMbIT Magazine - Alan D.D. Dec 6, 2016

    This may not be the best issue in the series and it might even be considered the weakest when looking back on the series. It doesn't quite have the love we saw given in past issues, or in the script department at least. However, that doesn't necessarily mean we shouldn't keep reading to see what happens next. Valiant has shown they can correct these kind of hicups. And even at its worst Faith is still better than most. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Brian Belanger Dec 15, 2016

    I thought this was going to be a little more drawn out than it ended up being, but that's not a big deal. It was a nice, even emotional ending to this piece of the storyline and I'm alright with moving onto the next. Speaking of, you should still be following these books and getting each one so you get the next issue. Read Full Review
