Faith is Back! Valiant Comics To Launch Holiday Special Featuring the Plus Size Superheroine

When Valiant Comics launched Faith, a limited comic book series featuring a plus size female lead character, in January 2016, it was simply a hit.

So much so, that Valiant has announced that they will be releasing a holiday special on December 6th, titled “Faith’s Winter Wonderland Special #1“. It’s Valiant’s first-ever holiday special and is written and drawn by Marguerite Sauvage.

Valiant Entertainment CEO Dinesh Shamdasani said in a statement to MTV News:

“Faith’s popularity has gone far, far beyond comics alone. Her unique and optimistic outlook have made her a source of fascination everywhere from The Atlantic to The New York Times to People… we’re hearing from scores of longtime readers and new fans alike about how Faith has reshaped their notions of what a superhero can be. It truly is extraordinary.”

According to MTV News, the holiday special will have Faith up to some festive adventures:

“As cheer fills the air, Faith ‘Zephyr’ Herbert is about to take a trip down the rabbit hole… and into a mind-bending winter wonderland where every day is something special! But hiding behind the tinsel, all is not what it seems… White rabbit meets red-nosed reindeer as Faith squares off against a realm of make-believe and merriment for a whimsical flight of superhero fancy.”

It’s refreshing to see Faith become as popular as she has. It’s a true testament to the fact that people want to see realistic body shapes and sizes in comics and in the media, overall.
