Faith is drawn into a new world when she attends a party at the home of renowned artist Louis Thorn.

It’s a world of opulence, excess, and sensuality—and something darker that she can’t put her finger on. There is something . . . curious about these people, a darkness or shadow just at the edge of reason . . . and maybe it is exactly what Faith is looking for.

Brian Azzarello and Maria Llovet’s Faithless #1 Returns with Two Second Printings

BOOM! Studios has announced that Faithless #1 – the hotly-anticipated new series from New York Times bestselling writer Brian Azzarello and artist Maria Llovet about love, sex and the devil – sold out at the distributor level on April 10th, the same day it went on sale at comic book shops.

To meet the overwhelming demand from retailers and fans alike, BOOM! Studios will release an unprecedented two second printings covers – Faithless #1 Second Printing Variant Cover featuring a new version of the iconic cover by Eisner Award-winning artist Paul Pope and Faithless #1 Second Printing Erotic Variant Cover, featuring an all-new cover by Llovet. Please note that the erotic variant cover will be polybagged and not publicly previewed due to sexually explicit material.

Faithless introduces readers to Faith, a young woman who likes to dabble in the occult. Her friends think it’s cute—and not just a little off-putting, but it’s part of her charm and her warped search for purpose in a world that makes too much sense. But she’s a true believer and knows there is a power within her reach. She’s right, of course. It just took a while for the supernatural, the temptation, the unknowable thing to find her . . . 

In short—Faith is bored as hell. And Hell has noticed.

Print copies of the two second printings will be available for sale on May 22nd, 2019, alongside Faithless #2.

Faith. Sex. The Devil.

Faith likes to dabble with magic. Her friends think it’s cute—and not just a little off-putting, but it’s part of her charm and her warped search for purpose in a world that makes too much sense. But she’s a true believer and knows there is a power within her reach. She’s right, of course. It just took a while for that magic, that temptation, that unknowable thing to find her . . .

In short—Faith is bored as hell. And Hell has noticed.

New York Times bestselling writer Brian Azzarello (Batman: Damned) and artist Maria Llovet (Loud) with Eisner Award-winning artist Paul Pope on covers coalesce in a story of self-exploration, eroticism, and maybe even love.

Faithless #1

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.
