Are you a fan of superhero comics? I know, I know, stupid question, but I needed to break the ice. My other opening line was: OMG I JUST READ THE BEST MOST AWESOME COMIC YOU HAVE TO READ IT GUYS!!! Which seemed a bit awkward…
Anywho. By day, Faith Herbert is Summer Smith, mild-mannered content writer for Zipline, a Buzzfeed-like site. By night, Faith Herbert is Zephyr, a superhero with flying and (limited) telekinetic abilities.
Faith is like us: a nerd. She’s a pudgy, sci-fi-loving, fanfic-writing, action figure-collecting nerd. She also happens to be a psiot, a human who developed superhuman abilities. She recently moved to L.A. after breaking up with her boyfriend *and* her superhero team. She assumed an alter ego (enter Summer Smith) but can’t help but listen to the police scanner for opportunities to help people. And there are plenty of opportunities.
Check out Faith, Vol 1: Hollywood and Vine by writer Jody Houser and artists Francis Portela, Marguerite Sauvage, and Andrew Dalhouse for a nerdy good time!
