Coming to comic book shops on February 12th is Loud from writer/artist Maria Llovet. Black Mask Studios sent us a preview of the issue, that you can check out, after the jump.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Llovet said, “I’m very excited about the release of Loud because making this comic was a bit of a challenge for me; I’m usually very moody in my writing and here wanted to go the other way around. It’s a very sordid story at its core, but presented in a very festive way. The contrast may shock some, but I think the result is interesting.
“It was also a bit of an experiment because most of the story is silent, as the music in the club is so loud that the characters can’t hear each other, and relays deeply in its visual cinematographic narrative. That’s always one of my favorite parts.”

Synopsis: The LOUD nightclub. A latecomer stripper, a pissed waitress, a hitmen couple, a suspension bondage performer, a pregnant teenager, a clan of vampires, a pedophile, a lesbian junkie, a divorcing middle-aged woman, a sadistic dominatrix, and many other souls in search of love, drugs, and blood converge at the hottest club in town on a night that none will ever forget. If they survive.
LOUD is like THE HUNGER if directed by Tarantino — a stylish, tripped-out bloodbath of beautiful and vicious decadence.You’ll feel the beat throbbing in your skull, smell the sweat, taste the blood, and lose yourself in the wicked underworld masterfully wrought by MARIA LLOVET (Faithless, There’s Nothing There).
