Faith is the first comic to star a plus-sized superhero! Graphic Policy Radio welcomes special guest, writer Jody Houser who is part of the team at Valiant Comics bringing Faith to life in one of the year's most anticipated comics.
Jody Houser earned her MFA in Creative Writing at Emerson College in Boston, where she completed her master's thesis in screenwriting and was a winner of the Rod Parker Fellowship for Playwriting.
She began experimenting with webcomics in 2006 and is the creator behind the webcomic Cupcake POW!, which has updated weekly since 2010 and is currently available on comiXology Submit.
Jody has been a contributing writer to numerous comic anthologies including Womanthology: Heroic and Womanthology: Space from IDW, CMYK: Magenta from Vertigo, and Avengers: No More Bullying from Marvel, as well as Dead Roots and Rise: Comics Against Bullying. Recently, Jody has written Orphan Black for IDW and Agent May for Marvel.
Faith was the break out star of Valiant's Harbinger. A psionically gifted “psiot” she has always aspired to greatness. Now this once-ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she’s always known she can be – complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws her into harm’s way! Well, at least she thought it would… When she’s not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels’ own leading superhero – the sky-soaring Zephyr! But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought.

Let's just jump into it, shall we? Stop by The Comic Shoppe tomorrow at 7pm as Daryll B, Captain Kirk and Dburt analyze the following pop culture phenomena: our analysis of this past Friday's release of Captain America: The First Avenger-did it live up to the hype?; a discussion of metas on television-have you noticed that a number of TV programs (and movies) that are not conventional fantasy shows have become reliant on certain characters possessing a type of talent or "super power" (case in point-USA's lawyer themed show, Suits); San Diego hosted its 41st annual Comic Con International event with 130K plus in attendance; Capcom does it again, a few months after the release of Marvel vs Capcom 3, an Ultimate version is slated for release the fourth quarter of this year; Freddy Kreuger is coming to Mortal Kombat next week; in the wake of the independent comic book initiative, Womanthology, an all-female comics anthology with an all-star lineup of female creators, receiving substantial funding in 24 hours...the question remains-can a similar Black themed anthology be far behind? and lastly, our favorite graphic novel reading suggestions from the previous week.
