Thanks to BOOM! Studios for providing review copies of Faithless!

Synopsis: 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.

Review

First off, if you missed my review of the first issue, here it is: FAITHLESS #1 REVIEW: HOPE YOU LIKE CLIFFHANGERS!

It’s fair to say that nothing is going to stop this sexy train. Issues 2 & 3 were a bit lighter on the occult aspects, but much heavier on the erotic ones. After meeting Poppy in the first part of this arc, Faith is quickly immersed in Poppy’s world of wild parties and high profile celebrities. Surely this is just the type of experience Faith has been wanting in her “boring” life.

There arean’t a ton of major plot points throughout the course of these 2 issues, however it is clear that the evil tracking Faith is getting more and more present. There are clearly players behind the scenes trying to foster grief and heartache in Faith, couples with desire and longing. Faith herself also has abilities that have yet to fully show themselves. Overall, the first 3 issues of this story do a great job of introducing the issues and major characters. I can’t wait to read on and see more of the darkness tracking Faith.

This is not a story for everyone, and I do believe in trigger warnings. There is a lot of sex and nudity in these pages. There is also some drug use, emotional & sexual manipulation, and themes of death and loss. I find that all of these elements serve an important role in the general atmosphere of Faithless. Some moments are high on schock value, and one scene in Issue #2 in particular raises questions of consent.

Faithless #2 and #3 are out now.

If you have read these books, I would love to talk more about these themes on Twitter or Instagram!
