But why Faith? And why now?
Fly to the farthest edges of the future right here in a death-defying race to save time itself as Faith leads the charge alongside Valiant’s greatest heroes…and becomes a new legend for the ages!
Collecting FAITH AND THE FUTURE FORCE #1-4.
Received for free through NetGally, I feel like I was dropped into the middle of a time and dimension spanning story, but it wasn’t as jarring as some recently read comics. I did have questions about who “Faith” was and they were not answered in this book, so I’ll be doing some googling later today about the character. The only reason I got this was I saw Rai from the 4001 AD mini series on the cover, but he only appears for a couple panels and is dead in several others (time travel shenanigans, ‘natch).
Despite the lack of context and absolutely no “previously on”, I do feel like I got a complete story out of the book, though it would have been helpful to have a story primer with a character index.
