Hey O & G comic heads. Valiant is doing something really cool. You can read the details below.
Debuting exclusively at ThinkGeek, Valiant Entertainment and Elhoffer Design are proud to unveil a new fashion-forward line of women's and unisex apparel inspired by Valiant's internationally renowned, breakout superhero sensation, Faith, and her allies on the Harbinger team of super-powered teenagers.
As detailed at Bustle, Valiant – the award-winning publisher of the largest independent library of superhero characters anywhere in the comics industry – has teamed with ThinkGeek and Elhoffer to realize "The Faith Collection." Designed by Catherine Elhoffer of Elhoffer Design and available just in time for Valentine's Day, Valiant's first-ever line of women's designer fashion is flying high with three initial offerings:
“We are always excited to honor and celebrate important women in comics, and what better time to do so than during Valentine’s Day?” said Jen Yi, Product Manager at ThinkGeek. “It’s been great to partner with Valiant and Elhoffer Design to create these amazing sweaters and shirts to share the celebration with other die-hard fans.”
“It was an absolute honor and pleasure to not only be approached by Valiant Entertainment to design and create this collection, but to get to work with such an exciting and welcoming team,” said Catherine Elhoffer, Designer and President of Elhoffer Design. “Valiant has been downright fantastic to team up with, and I hope to create even more with them in the future! Faith is a superhero that is close to my heart, as I'm also a plus-size girl. She's inspired me to help save the world in the way I know how: making fashion that helps everyone feel empowered and invincible!”
Created by former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter and Eisner Award-winning writer and artist David Lapham in Valiant’s acclaimed HARBINGER series in 1992, Faith has long been a central icon of Valiant’s award-winning publishing line. Then, in 2016, Faith took her long-awaited, much-demanded first step toward solo stardom with FAITH #1 – a groundbreaking debut that quickly became one of the year's biggest breakout hits from any major comics publisher. In the years since, Faith’s solo adventures have garnered near-universal critical acclaim and generated worldwide attention from international media outlets, including The Atlantic, The A.V. Club, Cosmopolitan, The Guardian, The Hollywood Reporter, The Huffington Post, The Independent, MTV, The New York Times, NPR, PBS Newshour, People, Seventeen, Today, Vox, The Washington Post, and dozens more. Most recently, in 2017, her ongoing series was nominated for an Eisner Award – one of the comic book industry's most prestigious honors – for "Best New Series."
Faith will soon fly onto the big screen alongside her teammates in a HARBINGER feature film from Sony Pictures and produced by Neal Mortiz's Original Film (The Fast & The Furious franchise).
