Yea she's a go-getter, she's everybody's type

Faith lately has been dragging for me. Coming off the last arc I was happy to see the rogue gallery would soon be coming together to go after Faith. I just hope things start to escalate for me cause I really want to love this series. Let’s get into it…

The majority of the issue focuses on the villains. We open the issue with Murder Mouse breaking Dark Star out of high level security prison to meet Sidney Pierce at an unknown warehouse. There they sit around waiting for Chris Criswell to arrive. Chris Criswell explains his reason for bringing them together and wants to form a super villain group to take down Faith. The issue ends where Murder Mouse and Sidney teleport to a holding facility to break out an unfamiliar character which I was not familiar with. Even in my research and looking through my issues of Faith couldn’t find anything.

The other focus in the issue is on Faith being her superhero self and spending time with her friends. Not much to really take away on this end.

This may be the shortest review I’ve written. If the issue wouldn’t have had an appearance of Faith, I wouldn’t mind a villain focus issue. We could’ve learned more about this mysterious Director the villains broke out. I did find myself chuckling at some of the comedic jokes in this issue. Just wanted a bit more out of this. Not being steeped in Valiant mythos, the cliffhanger didn’t leave me excited for what’s to come. I’ll continue this series and really want to love the book I came to adore at the start of the series.

Bits and Pieces:

While the villains have assembled, that’s all there is to take away from this. There’s plenty of comedic moments to put a smile on your face. But we’ve waited quite awhile to set up Faith’s rogue gallery only to see them get to know each other and understand they all hold a grudge against Faith. Hopefully, the next issue really kicks into gear and get’s me excited again for this series.
