    I must say this is a great all ages read, perfect one shot story. Not to mention a great addition yo your valiant library if you haven't been reading the new Valiant you really need to check it out. Treat yourself to this book and maybe even the Faith & The Future Force trade paperback. Treat yourself tis the season and all. Keep on reading and keep it Geek...Outright Geekery that is!

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Dec 13, 2017

    Ultimately then, as a straight-up Christmas story, Faith in Wonderland definitely ticks all the boxes, providing a fun, fantastical tale with an uplifting message about the importance of imagination at its core. However, as an actual Faith comic, it doesnt quite deliver the way it should, hampered slightly by an unfamiliar version of our favourite Valiant heroine. Whatever way you look at it though, its still well worth a look if youre in the mood for an upbeat, eye-catching slice of festive fun. Read Full Review

    Faith's Winter Wonderlandis a little treat just before the holidays douse us in tinsel, wrapping paper, and saccharine, but a story like this reminds us to take a moment to experience the fantasy and merriment that comes with it. Read Full Review

    Faith's Winter Wonderland Special #1 is a fun engaging yarn that's sure to keep fans aware of Miss. Herbert during her temporary hiatus. The creative team does a lot right with this quick narrative, building something good from cover to cover for both new and old readers. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 6, 2017

    While its moral is a bit flawed, over-simplified, and its conveyance takes up a good portion of the comics runtime, Faiths Winter Wonderland Special #1 is still a fun and upbeat read. The art is solid, Faith is a great lead, and the concept is creative. I can recommend it to anyone looking for some fun holiday-themed comic reading, and it will satisfy you in that regard.

    AiPT! - Alyssa Jackson Dec 5, 2017

    While this is a fun break from the main story, there isn't a lot of depth here. It's as candy-colored as the art in the issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Dec 9, 2017

    This issue is a lot of fun. Okay it may not be the most heavy weight of books you'll read this week but it is fun and that, for me, is what Holiday Specials should be about. There is a neat parallel drawn in the book between the commercialization of kids TV (or just new stories for kids) and the commercialization of Christmas. Plus the Lewis Carroll vehicle sold me from the off. A sugar-high of an issue, and a piece of pure escapism with a festive tinge. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Thegreatmagnet Dec 9, 2017

    I know that I'm probably thinking about this too hard, and maybe that's my problem. Sometimes the best way to have fun is to dig into something light and fluffy, and not worry about things making sense. Perhaps this story is too close to making sense without being fully there, making it a little harder to turn my brain off. Or perhaps I'm lacking when it comes to a sense of humor when it comes to all things Valiant. There are certainly interesting ideas in this issue, but perhaps there were just too many ideas to execute effectively in one regular-sized issue. Read Full Review
