A special edition Faith comic has been published to raise awareness of breast cancer.
Valiant Comics has teamed with the Keep A Breast Foundation to publish the Faith Warped Tour/Keep A Breast Special Edition #1 which sees the good-natured heroine confronting the realities of breast cancer in a special standalone story, created in collaboration with the Foundation.
Print copies of the comic will be available at select Vans Warped Tour ’17 presented by Journeys tour dates, beginning today (Friday) in Seattle, WA.
For those of us unable to make the tour stops, the comic is also available for free via comiXology, the official Valiant mobile app for iOS, and the Keep A Breast Foundation website.
Faith serves as the Foundation's "comics ambassador", and its founder and CCO, Shaney jo Darden, said:
"Teaming up with a force like Faith is so rad, especially with such a growing female readership in comics today. I think comics inspire people to stick up for themselves and others, to be their own advocate, and that’s exactly what we do. Being your own health advocate can really empower you, and knowledge gives you that power. Faith helps us celebrate our bodies through the power of different mediums, channels, and alter egos, showing how comics and art can put a spotlight on real issues, start important conversations, and empower us to be our own superheroes."To learn more about this comic, the tour dates, and Valiant's involvement with the Keep A Breast Foundation, click here.
