Enter Valiant Entertainment.
Note: Harbinger - Faith #0 and Unity #13 (pictured above). Both released in December 2014. Contrast these to other comics released in December 2014 (pictured below), featuring female characters.
While Valiant's comics certainly have their fair share of the "cheesecake" character-types, they also have something I haven't seen - Faith.
Faith is an "over-weight" hero. But she isn't a joke. She's a joyful, optimistic character that brings a tremendous amount of heart to whatever books she's featured in. The writers and artists consistently portray her as heroic (albeit inexperienced), kind, and beautiful.
Faith is among my favorite superheroes currently. (Which means, Valiant needs to make an action figure for my shelf!)
I am grateful for her existence in the comic world. Hopefully Valiant will influence other creative-types to portray heroes that look a little more like us fans who read these stories.
