A First Look at Brian Azzarello and Maria Llovet’s Faithless #1 from BOOM! Studios
BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Faithless #1, the first chapter of an all new five-issue comic book series from New York Times bestselling author Brian Azzarello and artist Maria Llovet about a young woman’s thrilling journey of personal exploration as she dabbles in the occult, discovers her own latent magical abilities, and attracts all the wrong attention. In short—Faith is bored as hell. And Hell has noticed.
Arriving in stores April 10, Faithless #1 introduces readers to Faith, a young woman who doesn’t know what she wants out of life but knows that nothing in her utterly mundane everyday life is satisfying her needs. Faith finds solace in her devotion to the occult and the belief that magic exists somewhere in the world, and she longs for the power to make her runes and rituals actually work but as much as Faith loves practicing magic, she’s never so much as lit a candle with her spells.
Everything changes when she runs into Poppy, an exciting and strangely compelling woman with whom Faith strikes up an instant connection, leading them both to deal with an unexpected trauma and ending in a magical night that reveals that Poppy might not be exactly who she appears to be.
Faithless #1 features a main cover with art by Eisner Award-winning artist Paul Pope, a variant cover by Lee Bermejo, and an erotic variant cover by superstar Tula Lotay that will be polybagged and not publicly previewed due to sexually explicit material. Subsequent issues of Faithless will continue this variant cover program with similar content and packaging.
