    Faith works best when the story has some playfulness and this one worked brilliantly. Read Full Review

    I still enjoyed this issue very much, but it wasn't quite as exciting as the other issues. There were only a few little Easter eggs here and there, but the message about friendship was a nice one. It is a different type of super hero comic, and the fact that Faith has so many supportive friends who know about her identity is good change of pace. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Mar 1, 2017

    Faith #9 is less about Faith than it is about the people she works with and how the feel working with a superhero. It's honestly a really interesting story for fans of the character, but it will also make a very interesting read for fans of other superheroes who works at a newspaper like career who haven't revealed their identities to those around them; imagine it as an Elseworlds or What If? story Read Full Review

    The issue itself is a bit of a throwaway, with its only real conflict coming from an unexpected and easily dispatched adversary, but the sentiment is so strong and Kate Niemczyk's art so sharp that it works on quality of substance alone. Read Full Review

    GAMbIT Magazine - Alan D.D. Mar 3, 2017

    I can say that on the whole this was one of my favorite issues so far. It's maybe not the best one because of little personal likes and dislikes, but it's enjoyable for those who like humor, action and stories with a good dose of morality thrown in. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Brian Belanger Mar 26, 2017

    This little break in the story arcs was a nice solo issue that didn't necessarily focus on Faith. While we may not have as much attachment to the secondary characters, they got a chance to shine more for once. I'm guessing we'll go back to the regular pace of things next, but until then you can enjoy this latest piece of series. Read Full Review
