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.

Paul Pope’s Heavy Liquid Heads to Image for a 20th Anniversary Edition

Image Comics is celebrating two decades of Paul Pope’s Eisner Award-nominated, science-fiction/cyberpunk classic Heavy Liquid with an exuberant, all-new, 20th anniversary trade paperback. This gorgeous new edition will collect issues #1-5 of the Heavy Liquid series and feature newly remastered colors by Pope to restore them to his original vision, making them more vibrant and powerful.

TIME magazine listed Heavy Liquid among the 100 most important science fiction graphic novels of the decade when it originally debuted in the 2000s, and its relevance and influence continues to grow. This new edition is designed and edited by the artist himself, restores the artwork for the first time to its original “widescreen” format (wider that typical US comics), and features a newly refined two-color palette. The opening and closing 16 pages are in full color, including newly designed artwork for this edition and all of the original “virgin” cover designs, with logos and added type removed.

In a future where New York has evolved into a sci-fi metropolis, Heavy Liquid follows a fugitive called “S”—on the run from a murderous gang—who becomes entwined in a mystery that’s littered with love and drugs. At the heart of this mystery is an addictive substance called Heavy Liquid that’s both a drug and an art form. In his search for the one artist skilled enough to render Heavy Liquid into a perfect sculpture, S finds himself battling deadly psychopathic foes as well as the inner demons of addiction. If he can survive these physical and mental trials, S might just discover the shocking secret behind heavy liquid, and find a love he thought lost forever.

Heavy Liquid 20th anniversary trade paperback edition (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1404-7) will be available in comic shops on Wednesday, June 19 and available in bookstores on Tuesday, June 25.
