Jody Hauser has taken time in crafting Faith’s supporting cast since the introduction of the series. Until now her coworkers have mostly taken a background role for Faith’s heroics and even Archer popping in from time to time. They get a little more time in the spotlight as we actually go into their heads as they take turns narrating this week’s issue. We see how each of them really feel about Faith, having to keep her secret identity, and even their own “dream sequences” of how they wish their relationship would go. It really helps expand each character while having fun with them. Of course we still get a mix of office danger mixed in related to Faith working there, but none of them truly blame her for it, or the previous incident. It’s a light, fun issue that serves to build the characters more than there has been a oppurtunity for before, while continuing to not take itself to seriously when it doesn’t have to.
