A common criticism leveled against superhero comics concerns representation of female characters. It is a wholly accurate assessment that a vast majority of women in modern comics are presented in an overtly objectified manner, often to a startling degree. Luckily, there have been great pushbacks against this tired trope in various forms, such as the Hawkeye Initiative.
But why preface my review with this concept? Because there are examples of modern comics that are also fighting to break out of this box. Arguably the best recent example is Faith from Valiant’s Harbinger title, an overweight, comic book nerd with an uplifting personally and desire to do what’s right rather than what’s convenient. Finally, this fan favorite character has taken flight in her own one-shot, Harbinger: Faith #0!
