Valiant’s latest Faith series, Faith: Dreamside, is a study in contrasts, pitting one of comics’ brightest and most charismatic heroines against dark ghosts, Gaiman-esque blurry nightmares, and now a straight-up excursion into a land where dreams die. Faith’s sunny demeanor and pop culture references are strong, but will the darkness in this book be stronger?

That’s the question in next month’s Faith: Dreamside #4. Writer Jody Houser and artist MJ Kim bring us a story in which Faith fights for a young girl’s soul, grappling with demons and dark personifications of her inner conflicts. Hope versus cynicism, light versus dark. But don’t worry: Faith is strong, you all.

Check out the Beat’s exclusive preview of Faith: Dreamside #4 after the jump!
