Preview: Valiant’s Faith #1: Coloring Book Edition
Because you're never too old to read comics, or wield crayons.
In a hectic world, there’s something immensely soothing about unplugging and going old-school by sidling up to a coloring book with some crayons and going to town, inside the lines or out. For comics fans, what better coloring experience is there than getting to color your favorite superheroes? Valiant Comics is filling that need by releasing a coloring book version of Issue #1 of Faith, their popular new superheroine, and they’ve provided TMS with some exclusive preview pages!
Faith #1: Coloring Book Edition comes complete with the issue’s finished lettering and an exclusive bonus cover gallery. Now don’t get me wrong, coloring art by Pere Perez and Marguerite Sauvage is pretty rad. However, looking at these preview pages makes me wish they’d left the lettering out. Then, you’d not only have a coloring experience, but you could get even more creative and make up what you think the story is! Then again, you now get to enjoy the story that writer Jody Houser created for you as you color, so it isn’t exactly terrible. (And if you want to black out the dialogue and write in your own, I won’t tell.)
For those who’ve yet to board the Faith train, here’s the story and the official solicit information:
In a city under siege by robots, aliens, monsters and even worse…celebrities, there is only one woman the people of Los Angeles can count on: the stratospheric superhero called Faith! Aspiring reporter by day and dedicated crime-fighter by night, Faith has tackled every obstacle in her path with confidence—like those crushing deadlines at work, the long-distance boyfriend half a world away, and the missing back issues that plague her comics collection! But, unbeknownst to her, Faith is about to collide with the one force she never saw coming: an up-and-coming super-villain bent on snuffing her out once and for all! But who is lurking behind the mask of her new foe…and could they just be the one person capable of rendering Faith powerless?
