Graphic Novel/ Trade Paperback Recommendation

Faithless Deluxe Edition

(W) Brian Azzaerllo (A) Maria Llovet

An erotic depiction of faith, sex, and the devil in the tradition of the divine comedy. Faith likes to dabble with magic. Her friends think it’s cute—if not a little off-putting—but it’s part of her charm and warped sense of purpose in a world that makes too much sense. Faith’s a true believer and knows there’s power within her reach, but it took a while for that magic and temptation to find her. That temptation? His name is Louis and with his guidance Faith embarks on a journey deep into the exclusive art world… with hellish consequences. New York Times bestselling writer Brian Azzarello (100 Bullets, Moonshine) and artist Maria Llovet (Loud) coalesce in a story of sexual and magical awakenings, and maybe even love. The hit trilogy of graphic novels is collected under in one complete volume for the first time and features a series of explicit erotic covers by superstar artists Tula Lotay, Kris Anka, Jenny Frison, Becky Cloonan, Vanesa del Rey, and Dani. Collects Faithless, Faithless II, and Faithless III.
