Colleen Doran Joins Valiant’s Faith #1
Valiant has announced that Faith #1 – the much-anticipated ongoing series debut beginning “The Future of Valiant” initiative on July 20th – has added Eisner and Harvey Award-winning artist Colleen Doran and will grow to 40 pages for an all-new origin sequence introducing the history-making hero’s first monthly title! Doran joins the series’ ongoing creative team of rising star Jody Houser, Harvey Award nominee Pere Perez and 2016 Russ Manning Award nominee Marguerite Sauvage for a special guest appearance retelling of Faith’s miraculous early life and origin – a perfect introduction for new readers wowed by Faith’s five-time sold-out limited series and subsequent spotlight-stealing appearances in major news outlets around the world!
A 30-year veteran of the comics industry and a winner of the Eisner, Harvey and International Horror Guild awards, Colleen Doran has contributed to some of the most acclaimed titles in comics history, including The Sandman, Wonder Woman, Amazing Spider-Man, Legion of Super-Heroes, Teen Titans and many more. As the creator of A Distant Soil, Doran wrote and illustrated one of the industry’s longest running and most revered creator-owned series. In the intervening years, she worked on a number of prominent projects in and out of the superhero genre, including Orbiter with writer Warren Ellis, Mangaman with writer Barry Lyga, Gone to Amerikay with writer Derek McCulloch, and The Book of Lost Souls with writer J. Michael Straczynski. Her latest work, the graphic novel Troll Bridge – adapted from the short story by Neil Gaiman – will be released in October by Dark Horse. Faith #1 is her first work for Valiant Entertainment.
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?
Now, on July 20th, Faith’s runaway success is set to continue with the all-new Faith #1 – from the all-star creative team of Jody Houser, Pere Perez, Marguerite Sauvage and Colleen Doran!
