    I am intrigued about this story arc. The pacing was different, slower, but did not detract from the story. It was exactly the way it needed to draw out Faith's feeling and produce interest on behalf of the reader. I'm very much looking forward to see what exactly is going on with these possible hallucinations Faith has been having! Read Full Review

    Overall this was another hit for the Faith series! This is something that, as a reader and huge fan now of, I really hope we see turned into a show or movie series at some point. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 7, 2017

    If you've followed the series since the “Long Con” arc, you may have several theories of what may happen by the end of this. The earlier arc was a break between the two. Maybe to give it some breathing room before moving forward. Nonetheless, the start of the issue left me excited to see how this all plays out. Faith is a series you really want to check out if you want to break into the Valiant universe and looking for your next favorite superhero. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 5, 2017

    What really works is Houser's characterization here. Much like Faith we're not entirely sure what's real at this point, and while certain moments are definitely played up past the point that is necessary, Faith's uncertainty and lack of, yes, faith, rings clear and true. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jan 6, 2017

    'Faith' continues to be a joy to read as Houser and company deliver great character-driven stories and exceptional art. Faith is tested and dragged through some dark moments in her past. We're heavily invested in this new arc because we don't who or why she's being haunted this way. It's a good point for new readers to jump in and find out what makes this book so great.

    All-Comic - Amy Okamoto Jan 5, 2017

    Faith #7 is a satisfying read introducing a new test for our heroine one that reveals not so much a heart of darkness but a heart of regret. It also serves as a jumping-on point for new readers. Attractive art and excellent panel flow make this a book a visual treat as well. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jan 5, 2017

    Faith Herbert may be one of Valiant's most likable characters, but Faith #7 shows that even the happiest people have demons and sometimes, they aren't just in their head. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Brian Belanger Jan 18, 2017

    I honestly wasn't sure if it was Faith just having a breakdown until the publisher summary confirmed otherwise. So, the question is, who is messing with her in this manner, and why? And howat that? Everyone will just have to do the smart thingand keep on reading this great series to find out. Read Full Review
