Faith: Dreamside is a Valiant Comics miniseries by Jody Hauser. Spinning off from events in Faith, it features the titular heroine teaming up with Animalia from Generation Zero and Dr. Shan Fong-Mirage from Death-Defying Doctor Mirage.

Having been framed for murder, Faith "Zephyr" Herbert finds herself increasingly stuck in her civilian life, and it's driving her crazy. So, naturally, when young Monica Jim, formerly called Animalia, seeks her out for help in dealing with supposed ghosts, she's all too eager to help out, even enlisting the aid of para-psychologist Dr. Mirage. However, things take a wrong turn, and Monica's spirit is stolen out of her body, forcing Faith and Dr. Mirage to travel into the treacherous Deadside in order to get Monica's spirit back.

This miniseries contains examples of:

  • Adorable Abomination: Once his powers are stripped away, Belu is reduced to being a cute little baby snake.
  • Animalistic Abomination: The Big Bad, Belu, resembles a massive snake with wings, horns, and a split face.
  • Crapsaccharine World: "Dreamside" looks like something out of The Wizard of Oz, but underneath the cutesy facade, it's every bit as dangerous as the rest of Deadside.
  • Cute Bruiser: Monica is tiny and adorable, but when she uses her powers, she can lay down a beating.
  • Hope Crusher: Belu feeds off of hopelessness and despair.
  • Nightmare Face: Belu's minions have horrifically wide grins and large yellow eyes.
  • Slasher Smile: Belu's minions have alarming wide, toothy grins with razor-sharp teeth.
