Brian Azzarello and Maria Llovet’s Faithless Returns in April

BOOM! Studios announced that the critically acclaimed team of writer Brian Azzarello and artist Maria Llovet will return to the world of their bestelling erotic series, Faithless, with a brand new six-issue sequel series, where Faith and her lovers, Louis (AKA The Devil) and Poppy (his daughter), bring magic and chaos to the streets of Italy.

Turin, known as the epicenter of black magic, is also a place of high fashion, art, and literature. Now, Faith is in the center of it all and with that, her own power grows. But any power comes with a price. Faith has only just begun to pay for hers.

Faithless II #1 features main cover art by series artist Llovet and the first in a series of erotic variant connecting covers by acclaimed artist Tula Lotay that will be polybagged and not publicly previewed due to sexually explicit material. Each erotic variant cover will be limited to its initial print run and will not be reprinted or collected in any subsequent formats. All issues of Faithless II will continue this variant cover program with similar content, limited release, and packaging.

Undiscovered Country #3 Heads Back for a 2nd Printing

New York Times bestselling writers Scott Snyder and Charles Soule and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli’Undiscovered Country is turning heads with multiple sell-outs at the distributor level and issue #3 is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with skyrocketing demand for the hot series.

In Undiscovered Country, readers journey into an unknown region that was once the United States of America—a land that’s become shrouded in mystery and literally walled-off from the rest of the world for decades. A small expedition enters the former US in search of a cure to a humanity-ending pandemic. They travel inward and learn the secrets of what America has become; each member seeking their own form of truth in the undiscovered country.

For issue #3, the expedition undertakes a desperate attempt to rescue a member of the team from the Destiny Man’s strange caravan city. Success or certain doom hinges on Americana expert Ace Kenyatta, PhD—what he knows about the new lands…and what he doesn’t.

The series was acquired early on by New Republic Pictures after a competitive bidding war for potential franchise development with Snyder and Soule attached to adapt the screenplay and serve as executive producers alongside Camuncoli. John Hilary Shepherd will oversee development.

Undiscovered Country #3, second printing (Diamond Code DEC198444) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, February 19.

Dynamite Celebrates 90 Years of Nancy Drew… By Killing Her

Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys: The Death of Nancy Drew

Happy birthday Nancy Drew, here’s a fridge! One of the stranger reveals so far of 2020 is Dynamite‘s Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys: The Death of Nancy Drew which will be released in April.

In reality, Nancy Drew is not dead as the announcement teases “Nancy Drew is dead! Or so it seems…” The release has understandably angered some as on the surface the concept of celebrating Nancy Drew by investigating her death is a bit odd. It’s Nancy Drew’s story… it just so happens to star the Hardy Boys.

The series is written by Anthony Del Col with art by Joe Eisma. Both took to Twitter to address the controversy.

Del Col Tweeted “not everything is as it seems…”

While Eisma responded to a Tweet asking if they just fridged Nancy, “I promise I would never do anything of the sort.”

The full release from Dynamite hints at more than just a murder mystery:

Through twists and turns, this dark noir-infused story unfurls as the biggest Nancy Drew mystery of all time. Nancy’s mysterious death follows one of her highest stake investigations into organized crime.

Could have Nancy faked her own death or gone into witness protection due to the mob?

Del Col and Eisma are joined by colorist Salvatore Aiala and letterer Crank! for this case.

We’ll uncover the truth when Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys: The Death of Nancy Drew comes to shelves in April.
