STEPHEN
FAITHLESS #1
Writer: Brian Azzarello
Artist: Maria Llovet
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Price: $3.99
Release Date: April 10, 2019

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 (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.
