What They Say:
Comics! Cosplay! Crime! This comic book convention isn’t what it appears to be…
From all across the world, fans have flocked to California’s biggest comics convention…but they never expected to see real-life superheroes duking it out! When fandom’s most important event becomes an all-out super-powered melee, can Faith “Zephyr” Herbert and her crossbow-wielding boyfriend, Obadiah Archer, prevent a gang of diabolical con-crashers from turning thousands of spectators into victims of the most brazen caper in comic book history?
If Faith has her way, these back-issue bandits will be going behind bars when breakout writer Jody Houser (Mother Panic) and acclaimed artists Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells) deliver an all-access pass to the high-stakes super-showdown of the fall!
Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers):
Faith is ready to take on her evil twin, when she realizes this isn’t an evil twin, but a clone. This Faith look-a-like really acts like her on all levels. Faith constantly thinks about how nice it would be to have someone she can relate to. While she daydreams off and on, the team of two, becomes a team of three.
Archer and the Faiths take on the bad guy and his clones. They capture the bad guy, but in the process the magical item he stole is about to explode. Faith’s clone does the right thing and flies the item out of the convention. The item detonates and takes the clone with it. The day is saved, but Faith remains unsettled.
Why does this comic come only once a month? It’s such a joy to read, but the wait is so long!
As always, there are several things I like this comic. Faith’s prospective always engages me as a person. It’s the small things like when she said she always tries to go solo, but for some reason she always ends up on a team. That’s a metaphor for a lot of things, but mostly that we try to do too much by ourselves when we should be okay with seeking help from others.
I also continued to like the con tips and the great sense of humor. I also appreciated the very sweet moment with Archer on the train. I do hope we get to see more of them together.
Each issue is phenomenal. If you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?
