As first revealed at Paste Magazine, Valiant is proud to present a closer first look at FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1 (of 4), an all-new adventure starring Valiant’s fan-favorite fangirl and the first of four exciting series premieres that make up the recently revealed “BEYOND” initiative! On September 26th, Eisner-nominated writer Jody Houser (FAITH, Star Wars: Thrawn) and rising star MJ Kim (FAITH’S WINTER WONDERLAND SPECIAL #1) both return to the world of Faith Herbert as she teams up with the world’s foremost occult expert for an expedition into a brand-new realm never seen in the Valiant Universe! Prepare to enter…THE DREAMSIDE!
“I personally love horror and love writing it,” writer Jody Houser told Paste Magazine. “But as seen in her ongoing series, horror is probably Faith’s least-favorite genre. Being a hero doesn’t mean playing it safe, though. So even if she’s scared, Faith will go where she needs when duty calls. Sometimes that’s through time, and sometimes it’s beyond death.”
Even before Faith “Zephyr” Herbert gained the power of flight, joined the Harbinger Renegades, and soared through the skies of Los Angeles, deep down she was always a hero at heart. But what’s a hero to do in the face of a foe that exists only in nightmares? Face them head-on, of course! To protect the dreams of her teammate, Animalia, Faith must venture into a fantastical new realm the likes of which the Valiant Universe has never seen…and she’ll need some help from the world’s premiere parapsychologist, Dr. Mirage, to make it back with her subconscious mind still intact!
On September 26th, uncover the secrets of FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1 as writer extraordinaire Jody Houser and spectacular artist MJ Kim continue the adventures of the high-flying icon that Uproxx calls “A joy to read!” Featuring covers by Marguerite Sauvage (FAITH, DC Bombshells), rising star Sibylline Meynet (SECRET WEAPONS), and legendary artist Adam Pollina (X-Force)!
