Brian Azzarello & Maria Llovet’s FAITHLESS #1 Returns With Two Second Printings


“Brian Azzarello has always had exquisite taste in collaborators, and Maria Llovet is no exception. The two of them work perfectly together on FAITHLESS, the rare erotic comic that’s actually hot.”—Brian K. Vaughan

“Faithless is an experience readers won’t soon forget.”—Newsarama

“One of publisher BOOM! Studios’ riskiest, most incendiary titles to date.”—Paste Magazine

[/vc_column_text][us_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][us_separator size=”small”][vc_column_text]BOOM! Studios today announced that Faithless #1 – the hotly-anticipated new series from New York Times bestselling writer Brian Azzarello (Batman: Damned) and artist Maria Llovet (Loud) 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.[/vc_column_text][us_separator size=”small”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][us_separator size=”small”][us_image image=”21732″ style=”shadow-1″][us_separator size=”small”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][us_separator size=”small”][us_image image=”21686″ style=”shadow-1″][us_separator size=”small”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][us_separator size=”small”][vc_column_text]“We’re floored by the response from fans and retailers who’ve told us that FAITHLESS was their best-selling new release last Wednesday – and we urgently want to get more copies into the hands of readers and into their local comic shops instead of only at high prices on the aftermarket,” said Sierra Hahn, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “It’s thrilling to see Brian and Maria’s unfiltered, uncensored exploration of female sexuality in the modern world resonating with so many readers. FAITHLESS is about identity, trauma and how the two are often perilously intertwined which, as the last page of our debut issue hints, will definitely be the case for Faith and Poppy.”[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]FAITHLESS is the newest release from BOOM!
