From the official press release . . . . .

To meet surging demand for Faith’s solo series debut on the heels of mainstream recognition by a diverse array of media outlets including The A.V.

“Even before the first issue has hit stores, FAITH #1 has managed to over-perform on nearly every level,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “From story to accessibility on down, this is a perfect, new-reader-friendly first issue that wonderfully illustrates why Valiant’s brand of storytelling continues to accrue praise from all corners of the industry. To that end, we want to ensure that retailers nationwide are ready to accommodate readers looking for Valiant’s latest hit #1 title on January 27th, and this unique second printing overship is designed to do just that.”
Retailers will receive their bonus copies of the FAITH #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING in 50% proportion to their orders of the FAITH #1 (of 4) – Cover A by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic. Further copies of the FAITH #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING have also been made available through Diamond code: DEC158001.
Written by rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) with artwork by explosive artists Francis Portela (Green Lantern) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells), FAITH #1 (of 4) is the first-ever solo series for Faith “Zephyr” Herbert – the high-flying heart and soul of Valiant’s acclaimed HARBINGER series. Since her first appearance in 1992, Faith has stood the test of time as one of the most unique characters anywhere in comics – a starry-eyed superhero cut from the same comic-loving cloth as her fans around the world. Now, on January 27th, Faith is charging to the forefront of the Valiant Universe for blockbuster-scale adventure packed with spectacular superhero action, alien intrigue, and global stakes!
Orphaned at a young age, Faith Herbert – a psionically gifted “psiot” discovered by the Harbinger Foundation – has always aspired to greatness. But now this once-ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she’s always known she can be – complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws her into harm’s way! Well, at least she thought it would… When she’s not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels’ own leading superhero – the sky-soaring Zephyr!
But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought when Zephyr uncovers a deep-rooted alien conspiracy. Two-bit burglars and car thieves are one thing, but when the world needs a hero to stave off a full-blown extraterrestrial invasion, will Faith find herself in over her head…or ready for her biggest challenge yet?
