Faith Dreamside #1
Released: September 26th 2018
Okay, so confession time. I’m not even up to take on the older Faith series. I keep meaning to read them all, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Still, I love Faith so I knew I was going to give this series a try (hey, sometimes it’s easier to get into a series and stay caught up then it is to get caught up in the first place!).
So obviously I’ve missed some things. Like the bad guys teaming together and framing Faith for murder. Man does that stink. I feel like this is the sort of trial any legit superhero has to go through though, so in a twisted way I’m glad to see we’ve hit that point with her character.
I’m not surprised by the way Faith has decided to handle the dilemma – she’s never been the type to want to hurt people, and by showing up at scenes she risks altercations with the police. So while it’s a shame to see it happening, I sort of agree with her decision in this case.
I can’t wait to see what’s going on with the girl and how Faith is planning on helping her. Again, I think the girl is something else I’ve missed in the series, but I’ll get through the backstory of it all some other time. Right now I think I know enough to understand what’s going on.
As per usual the artwork for Faith was fantastic. I love that Faith doesn’t really look or act like a typical superhero. I mean, she’s a total nerd so obviously I relate to that. So it’s hard not to love her. I also like that her mild mannered alter ego is the one that wears the wig and disguise, as opposed to the other way around. It’s a really nice change.
