Over in Valiant’s Harbinger series (and the big event Harbinger Wars), the publisher has put its team of psiots – people with special abilities – through a lot of craziness. They’ve been in giant, explosive conflicts, they’ve had their emotions put to the test, and they’ve suffered a loss. These dramatic experiences would be enough to change anyone, but Faith – a psiot who can use telekinesis to fly and create a “companion field” – remains uplifting and lighthearted. Now, she has a great reason to be even happier: she’s the star of her very own limited series. That’s a huge deal for a fangirl like herself!

The new comic – by Jody Houser, Francis Portela, Marguerite Sauvage, and Andrew Dalhouse – goes on sale January 27th (a link to order can be found below), but we’ve already read the debut issue (Valiant’s nice like that). Guess what? We love it, and we hope you do, too! In case you’re not already excited for Valiant’s new series, here are three reasons why you should be!

Before we step into the future – will there finally be legitimate hover boards in 2016? – it’s time to reflect on the past. In 2015, quite a few awesome comic book series were published. There are several comics that won us over for totally different reasons, but we’ll keep it concise and take a quick look at just 25 of our favorite comics from 2015 (plus 5 honorable mentions). After all of the staff picked their favorites, we went ahead and ranked them. Obviously, there’s plenty of great comics out there and the list is sure to fluctuate from person-to-person.
