don't take this the wrong way but...come on mate...its a comic book.
People need to stop ridiculously over analysing random and unimportant things like it. Its kinda makes me laugh.
its a comic not a factual historical book based on real events.
My only point is that it's sloppy writing, especially from a writer (Brian K. Vaughan) I've come to expect better from.
My major grip with this arc is that Vaughan insists on writing Faith as a total frigging moron.
I beleive the avator is from Requim for a Dream, right?
I agree with you on how Brian K. Vaughan writes Faith. I loved the dialogue in the first issue (the pension plan line is a instant Buffy classic) but the 2 & 3 issues have left me kind of cold. I think that's because Faith is acting and is pretending to be someone else, a completely different persona. But I really want some old school Faith, just being herself.
The whole Amy Winehouse thing, the training of Faith for the mission and her being introduced to British pop culture makes complete sense to me. It's very plausible.

faith is in disguise, and the fact that she doesn't really sound like Faith suggests to me that she's smart, not stupid. The Faith dialogue in the first issue was brilliant. It does seem a little odd to reintroduce her and immediately have her acting deliberately out of character, though.
