SDCC 2016: Valiant and CBLDF Reveal Faith #1 SDCC Liberty Variant by Acclaimed Artist Ronald Wimberly
Valiant is supporting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) with the Faith #1 SDCC Liberty Variant – a limited edition release of the FIRST ISSUE of Faith “Zephyr” Herbert’s history-making ongoing series! Featuring a brand-new cover by Glyph Comics Award-winning artist Ronald Wimberly, the Faith #1 SDCC Liberty Variant will debut on Wednesday, July 20th exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con and will be limited to 1,000 copies.
Written by rising star Jody Houser with artwork by Harvey Award nominee Pere Perez and Russ Manning Award nominee Marguerite Sauvage – plus a special guest appearance by Eisner Award winner and comics icon Colleen Doran – this exclusive edition of Faith #1‘s much-anticipated 48-page debut features Wimberly’s first-ever cover artwork for Valiant Entertainment and continues the ascendent hero’s adventures from the pages of her five-time sold-out limited series and into a much anticipated monthly series. From The New York Times and The Atlantic to The Guardian and The Huffington Post to Today and People, find out why Faith is the singular hero grabbing the spotlight worldwide – and why her first ongoing series is already making waves as the most successful superhero debut of 2016 from any independent publisher in comics today!
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 be the one person capable of rendering Faith powerless?
Series writer Jody Houser will appear at the CBLDF’s booth (#1918) for two signings during Comic-Con International 2016. The first, on Thursday, July 21st, will begin at 12:30 pm PT sharp; the second, on Saturday, July 23rd, will begin at 1 pm PT sharp.
