Faith and the Future Force #1

   The flying female known as Faith keeps getting recruited to join super-hero teams - but it usually doesn't work out.

   Perhaps her luck will change with the Future Force - but I wouldn't count on it.

   She's at work in her "civilian" job and keeping a low profile because her superhero identity has been framed for murder. (Don't you hate it when that happens?)

   She's confronted by a mysterious woman wearing high-tech armor - so of course Faith happily goes off with her on a mission.

   As you might expect from a team named Future Force, there's time-travel involved, and a deadly menace from the past.

   Equal parts action and humor (with some science fiction thrown in for good measure), this series is off to a promising start.

   The script by Jody Houser is sharp and funny, and the art by Stephen Segovia and Berry Kitson is very good, with strong layouts and great character designs.

   The issue brings up some problematical concepts, but the team sorting them out promises to be fun.

Grade: A-
