Shirtless Bear Fighter #1

Shirtless Bear Fighter #1


What else can I say about Shirtless Bear Fighter besides “shirtless bear fighter”? A sendup of 80s action heroes, it begins almost like the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Commando, except with a guy who’s really good at fighting bears. Why is he so good at fighting bears? FIND OUT HERE! Ludicrous, absolutely ridiculous, and a lot of fun.

Faith has been an absolute joy from the start. Combining an extremely likable hero, great plotting and characterization, and a ton of heart, this has been one of Valiant’s best. Sad to see it go but I’m thrilled about the upcoming FAITH AND THE FUTURE FORCE miniseries.
