Thanks to BOOM! Studios for providing a copy of Faithless #1 for review!
Synopsis: 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 ( 100 Bullets , 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.
Dan passed this issue my way after he read it, he just knew it would be one for me and boy was he right! I wasn’t sure what to make of it for the first few pages, but it quickly becomes the type of story I love. Faith is stuck in a rut. She’s also super interested in pagan and occult symbols. She spends her time analyzing and drawing witchy things she may not completely understand. What could go wrong right!?
Faith meets Poppy, a woman having the worst day and they hit it off. They spend the afternoon sharing woes, drinks, small cons, and magic. Best friend things! At the end of the day they decide to take a step past friendship together and things end with…well you’ll have to read to find out. Trust me you won’t see it coming!
I can’t wait to read the rest of this series. It has all the things I love. Realistic and fantastical elements play together in a way that makes the story feel weirdly relatable. You can read Issue #1 right now!
