Shocking Events Turn to Sex, Danger, and Supernatural Delight In May 2019
BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at FAITHLESS #2, from New York Times bestselling writer Brian Azzarello (Batman: Damned) and artist Maria Llovet (Loud), the next chapter in an unforgettable story about a young woman whose exploration of magic and sex takes her into forbidden territory. In short—Faith is bored as hell. And Hell has noticed.
Faith just had the best night of her life but it isn’t over yet. The mysterious and sensuous Poppy is more than Faith could have ever dreamt of, bringing excitement, passion, and that elusive spark of magic into her previously mundane daily life. But not everything is as it seems. While Poppy hands Faith the keys to the underground art scene, drawing her deeper into a world of wild parties and crazy nights, other mysterious figures begin to enter her life, bringing with them more than a hint of danger and the supernatural.
FAITHLESS #2 features an erotic variant cover by acclaimed artist Vanesa R. Del Rey (Redlands), that will be polybagged and not publicly previewed due to sexually explicit material. This issue also features a main cover by artist Paul Pope (Heavy Liquid) and a variant cover by artist Fábio Moon (Casanova: Acedia).
“This issue finds Faith diving straight into Poppy’s world without reservation and little consideration as to the consequences. Her world has rapidly become anything but boring,” said Sierra Hahn, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Brian and Maria continue to impress with each new page of Faith’s journey. When you think you know where the story is headed, the bottom drops out and everything takes a sideways step into the unknown.”
