Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Faith
Publication date: February 24, 2021
The future of the Buffyverse begins in an all new one-shot revealing the secrets of Faith the Vampire Slayer.
With no Watcher, no idea how to harness the power in her and no idea where it came from, Faith has fallen back on old habits — and morals — to guide her. But what happens when those morals don't line up with the Council's... or with Buffy's?
The origin of Faith is revealed here for the first time, with a shocking ending to this issue! A perfect jumping on point for new and longtime Buffy fans alike that sets the stage for shocking events to come.
Script: Jordie Bellaire and Jeremy Lambert; illustration: Eleonora Carlini; covers: Kevin Wada, Joe Quinones, Dani.

That middle picture doesn't look like Faith and Buffy doesn't really look like Buffy either. That bothers me a lot 😭

The middle one is the worst one. Faith looks like a weird femme fatale from on old movie and I don't like those leather trousers at all. They are meant to be 16 years old in the comics, but she looks 40 here.

What is this thing about Faith having a motorbike 😂 I notice it in lots of fanfiction, on the promotion of her possible own spin off and this and yet in the show she’s never had one and I don’t think even expressed an interest in having one 😂

@Athene ah yeah it’s definitely seems to be something that’s a staple post show but in show it was something that never came up and just seems to be a permanent addition to her character 😂

@Faded90 Yeah I get what you mean I read a lot of Faith fanfiction and she does often have a motorbike. It's kind of like how often people have Faith drink in season 3 but we never actually saw that. It's just something a lot of people seem to agree fits lol

I love the first one, it looks like this weird mix of Faith and Eliza (which I know sounds weird, but whatever) :D

And about the motorcycle, I think it's because it fits her personality to a tee; constantly traveling, never settling in one place and only taking what the bike can carry, living from motel to motel, but not constrained by the four walls and roof of a car.

I think it's because motorbikes are often associated with being a rebel/bad boy/bad girl and Faith is more or less a rebellious character. Spike used a motorbike to travel with Andrew in Season 7 which meant they could only travel at night, even though Spike used to have a car in which he could drive about during the day. It's the aesthetic of the motorbike plus motorbikes are kind of cool.

Yeah, I think the first one is the best. Faith looks like a crazy Disney villain in the second one. As for the motorcyle, I think it's just a cliche short cut for the "bad boy/girl" archetype character. As Faith said once "it's just like riding a biker". lol. I would be interested in reading a solo Faith comic though, never read the Angel and Faith series.

Whether by coincidence or design, Eliza once said that the proposed Faith spinoff that she turned down was supposed to be "Faith on a motorcycle, on the run (escaped prison inmate, after all) cruising all around the Southwest, slaying occasional demons wherever she found them. Who knows? It would probably have lasted longer than "Tru Calling." in any case.

The First and third pictures are great and evocative; really capture her character.

The second one looks like Faith is about to do a 'Disney Villain Song' ala Mother Gothel. :p
