This is Faith #0!

Her first and only boyfriend to date is a little bit of an douche, her friends are all gone, and, after her insane adventure in Mexico City, Faith Hebert is feeling a little frustrated with the direction of her life. She's just a normal super-powered young woman in an increasingly crazy world. Here's the story of a true innocent and kind heart in a hard world. From the comic shop of her youth to the moment she found out that, despite her weight, she was actually light as feather.

    Writer Joshua Dysart successfully makes a sincere and noticeable effort to write his lead character as a truly motivated hero; Faith is as brave as she is lovable. She's unique, and that's clearly the effect Dysart was aiming for. Artists Robert Gill and Jose Villarrubia illustrate and fun and lively book; it directly reflects Faith's demeanor as a do-gooder.

    Harbinger: Faith #0 is an enjoyable tale about a young superhero coming to terms with being one, and deciding what would be best for her life going forward. The use of Twitter to tell parts of this story was an interesting and entertaining touch, and didn't feel gimmicky at all. The character development not just for Faith but Torque as well, shed light on these characters making them well-rounded. And there are also messages in this issue for specific audiences, which I believe will receive this well. And as a result of this issue I have a much greater appreciation for Faith being selected as the latest member of Unity, and I'm looking forward to seeing her in those stories as part of the team.

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Dec 18, 2014

    Dysart keeps the issue moving briskly by jumping from scene to scene every couple of pages. "Harbinger: Faith" #0 has the feel of an origin issue, in the sense that it's shows Faith moving into the realm of more responsible adulthood, but it doesn't have the compacted, summarizing vibe of a true origin. Readers who enjoyed Dysart's "Harbinger," the current "Unity" series, or who just love great characterization in comics, will want to pick up this look at a superheroine who is growing up.
