Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This entertaining superhero origin story teams popular author Julie Murphy with the Valiant Comics franchise to bring lots of positivity to the genre. Body size, sexual orientation, and good old-fashioned upbeat optimism are the order of the day and make Faith: Taking Flight a refreshing and inclusive superhero story. Even though it's the first of a planned duology, the story wraps up nicely while leaving room for further adventures. Some of the plot and the characters are pretty transparent, and it takes a while for the mystery to deepen and build. But superhero fans and fans of Julie Murphy will enjoy the upbeat tone, along with the action and mystery without all the violence and brooding that define so many superhero stories.
