    This was just ok. Sort of sexy, most definitely kinky. Artwork was nice, but the plot, meh. I guess I am just not into father-daughter-bff love triangles or something.

    Meh. This reminds me of shitty Vertigo books from the early 90's with your typical poor Vertigo art. A very sexually explicit book about a girl who meets another girl and her artist father. There's lots of steamy sex with weird horror images amidst that don't make any sense. This could have used less focus on the sex scenes and more focus on a plot. It has about as much story as a porno.

    I should just give up on Azzarello. I keep thinking his books look interesting... but never end up liking them. Whats it about? Theres a girl named Faith who meets a girl named Poppy. They start fucking, weird things start happening and thats basically all I can say without spoilers. Pros: Llovett is a great artist and she does a great job in this! I would show an example but most of the entire book contains stuff Goodreads wont let me show but just trust me, if you decide to read this youll see I should just give up on Azzarello.

I would show an example but most of the entire book contains stuff Goodreads won’t let me show but just trust me, if you decide to read this you’ll see some really good artwork. This book is very unpredictable which did keep my interest a fair bit. This is pretty intense throughout. Cons: The story is... dumb. It’s like every issue is characters fuck, some weird old woman says something about sin, some weird sex related thing (often a sexual death) happens to someone, repeat. It’s quite stupid. The characters aren’t good. One of them is bland, one of them is a psycho who apparently thinks raping people with magic is acceptable revenge for cat-calling (wish I was joking, I mean cat-calling is creepy and bad but fuck’s sake, REALLY?) and one of them is a completely obnoxious cunt who’s just creepy and says the most annoying shit that made me wanna go into the book and repeatedly punch him in the face. Speaking of saying annoying shit, the dialogue in this book is awful! This book attempts comic relief... and it’s not good. This book is meant to be a horror and... maybe I’m just desensitized as fuck (which is likely) but nothing in it is scary, creepy or even disturbing (well not in a good way). So I don’t mind sex or violence in a book at all but the way they’re approached in this book is just so immature. The sex especially because it’s a big part of the story but instead of approaching it tastefully in a romantic and/or emotional context like many great books manage to it just comes across as “hey, look there’s boobies and a dick and now we’re actually showing full frontal nudity and people fucking, aren’t we so edgy” even though most comic fans have seen stuff that are just as graphic and sexual but within better context. The problem is when you take emotion out of it and the plot is focused on it, the comic feels less like mature storytelling and more like hentai that was written in a more pretentious way (because at least hentai admits it’s comic book porn). I didn’t care for the ending. Overall: This book is stupid. Sure, it’s not Azzarello’s worst and there are a few things to like about it (mostly the art) but it’s pretty bad. Maybe if this book admitted it’s porn instead of trying to act like a deeper story mixing 2 entirely different genres I wouldn’t be as disappointed but I don’t think as many people would have still read it so it gets advertised as a mix of occult horror and erotic romance which is only barely true. Part of me thinks this was a failed attempt at looking more “adult”. I mean it kinda makes sense when you do the math. Azzarello’s latest “mature” DC project ended up getting slightly censored due to one panel including nudity and BOOM! is usually thought of as a YA type comic publisher so it makes sense that they’d maybe think this is a good way to show audiences that they can do “mature” comics too when in reality no matter how many times the characters say a swear word, find a corpse or fuck it comes across as actually more immature than most previously mentioned YA type comics. Convince Llovett to make the book look cooler and there ya go, big hit! Honestly I fail to see how this book is anything more than weird porn (and not in an amusing, humorous Rule34 type way). If you want an actually mature horror comic that heavily involves sexual themes and actually works, read Fatale. If you want to jerk off to something weird with bad dialogue, read this I guess. 2/5

    I liked this for the most part, though at times it felt 2edgy4me. The summary for the kindle version of this says this collects the whole series, but I found an article that says this will return in April but will be titled Faithless II, which is cool. Individual issue reviews: #1 | #2 | #3 | #4 | #5 | #6 Total review score: 2.5

    Woman having sex with each other. Sleezy devil like guy fucking the main character who is fucking the daughter who transforms into daughter but sometimes father...what is this series about? Basically a painter fucking a bunch of demons and forcing people into sex. This is some weird shit...the art is okay. I don't know if I'll continue it. But if like a lot of dick sucking, vagina licking, and naked bodies, this one is for you.

Bohužel v prvním booku nic. Ani trošku. Moje naděje se tak přelívají do toho, že snad v druhém booku ukáže něco víc než kůži všech hlavních hrdinů, jinak to bude horší i než taková Blackbird a to je co říct. Mohlo by se vám líbit, pokud: - taky zrovna prožíváte krizi středního věku, na auto nemáte a novou přítelkyni vám manželka nedovolí - čtete opravdu jenom mainstream a doslova nic jiného a chcete něco, co vás šokuje Spíš vás zklame, pokud: - tohle není vaše první rodeo, protože to není ani dost porno, ani dost gore, ani dost tajemné, vlastně to pořádně zatím nic není

    Little chaotic mix of occult and erotic in art circles. Drawing is pretty rough and shaky, but once you get used to it it works pretty well with theme. I'm looking forward how the stpry evolves in next arc, as first one served more like mood and scenery setting.

    Tak takhle ne. Příběh v prvním čísle je příjemně ukončen a slibuje příjemnou jízdu o pekelných svodech okořeněný trochou té hezké erotiky. Místo toho dostaneme na sílu tlačený erotický scény dplněný fragmentama příběhu, tkerý by byl fajn, kdyby se na něj autor soustředil. Kresba je super co se týká výrazových prostředků, ale místy hůř čitelná. velký zklamání :(

    Eighteen bucks. Collects six issues. Read it from cover to cover in less than 30 minutes. Is this the whole story, or is there more to come...? I really had no clue, because aside from some vaguely supernatural stuff that may or may not be happening, there's really not much to this book but a leisurely (!!) [pace and a lot of people fucking. (Thanks to this book and SAGA, I have seen enough comic book penises to last me a lifetime.) This story, such as it is, could have been decompressed and told Eighteen bucks. Collects six issues.

(And I got it for 50% off...) (And for added crabbyness, Boom made a big deal of having variant covers so dirty that they needed to be polybagged. None of those covers are included in this collection. Grrrr...)

    More sexy than scary. I cant tell if this is just the beginning or if it was a quickie. It had a decent plot but not too much story. An artist who toys with magic gets more than she bargained for after a "random" encounter with very pretty girl. After the two start hooking up, the demon girls dad gets involved and stuff starts to get really daring. It gets a little weird, only because the Dad and daughter duo aren't quite explained. Is it his real daughter? are they even really demons?? or is More sexy than scary. I cant tell if this is just the beginning or if it was a quickie. It had a decent plot but not too much story.

Is it his real daughter? are they even really demons?? or is this just some sexy pyramid scheme?? Something bad is going on but there doesn't seem to be enough evidence to prove it. The whole story also kinda just came down to "live deliciously" which is kind of a bummer because I was expecting more magic or demonology. Just something more resourceful overall. With that said, this book gets pretty hot. Definitely not safe for work. It also does this thing, were it'll be sexy and then BAM! You remember that its also part horror and now bugs are eating this girl out. This book tries really hard, and it leaves the ending a bit open for more, but I don't know if you need it.

    So this graphic novel was definitely that very graphic. I still dont know what to even say about this book. Okay so it was a lot. I have so many questions. I will say if you are heavy in faith dont pick this up. Some scenes where very sexually graphic so I dont suggest kids read this. I gave this graphic novel 3 stars because the story was interesting enough to want to finish but the constant sex scenes were a lot. So this graphic novel was definitely that very graphic.

    It was, at best, unfocused. There are some potentially interesting ideas here about love and art, but for a supposedly "erotic" work, it has some weird and even prudish ideas about sex. It's trying really hard for edgy, bless its heart, but just ends up somewhere in the neighborhood of pretentious. It's even more disappointing because I know Azzarello can do better.

    I dig the set style of Maria Llovet but the story not so much. It reminds me too much of "The devil's advocate" film. And I didnt really need THAT many sex scenes...and I think the story didnt them, too. I dig the set style of Maria Llovet but the story not so much.

    Through a weird, and often gross, mix of sex, pitch-black humour, and magic, Azzarello tries to talk about art, fame, friendship, and also sex, I guess? It's tough to pin this series down and the fact that it will get a second volume is a saving grace because if this was a standalone, I'd be saying that it's way too sparse.

    #1. This book is very good at capturing that dead time we all experience with friends and strangers in life. Most of the book focuses on Faiths day starting at a coffee house where shes friendly with who seems like everyone. She soon meets a mysterious and alluring girl who is being chased by an ex-boyfriend. Their adventure leads to intimate moments and moments of sharing and learning about each other, culminating in intimate moments. The thing is, the book opens with a sunny morning of #1. This book is very good at capturing that dead time we all experience with friends and strangers in life. Most of the book focuses on Faith’s day starting at a coffee house where she’s friendly with who seems like everyone. She soon meets a mysterious and alluring girl who is being chased by an ex-boyfriend. Their adventure leads to intimate moments and moments of sharing and learning about each other, culminating in intimate moments. The thing is, the book opens with a sunny morning of masturbation but ends far differently. This issue is also very good at some subtle clues. One has to wonder if Faith is evil, or wants to be due to the ritualistic symbols she likes to draw. She seems like an overall nice person and there’s evidence of such at different points of the story. That leads one to believe the final page is a sign of things going badly for Faith and should effectively get you interested in where the story goes from here. The art by Maria Llovet is very good, capturing the detail of backgrounds well. There’s a honed chaotic feel to the art that reminds me of Jim Mahfood’s work. It’s much more refined here, but that undercurrent of flair is ever-present. Sexual scenes are done tastefully and in no way are exploitive. In fact, I’d argue this is less an erotic story and more of an adult one. We’ll see if the series ramps up the erotic nature since they’re selling that angle so hard, but this issue is somewhat tame especially compared to series like Saga. The colors by Llovet do well to keep the book looking realistic, but with a pop of color just under the surface. It’s a subdued palette but still mixes in various colors to keep your attention in the right place. A great first issue that introduces readers to Faith and delivers on a wicked cliffhanger. It’s a triumph of character building and brooding magic. The true magic of the series is the patient's pacing and well-crafted characters. Faithless proves the devil is in the details. #2. As the cover seems to suggest, the main plot of issue #2 is about Faith going to the club and cutting a rug. Well, at least she makes it to the club. The issue opens where we left off with Faith in bed after having sex with a mysterious woman named Poppy. Spoiler alert, Poppy turned out to be a pile of maggots. She appears to be gone, save for a vision of a wolf-bird hybrid that blinks away. The weirdness fades away however and allows Faith to get ready and chase down Poppy who has hit up the coolest club ever. The creative team is doing just enough to remind us there’s a bit of magic in the world, but things generally are about as normal as can be. That allows for the shock of incredible moments to really zing. As the story progresses Azzarello introduces interesting supporting characters that are like ships passing through the night. There’s just enough color to give you a taste of who they are, but not enough to establish their purpose in the narrative just yet. It also continues to layer realistic elements into what appears to be some heavy fantasy. I don’t want to spoil it, but the series leans heavily into the erotic angle later in the issue that involves a fantastical element. It puts into question who Faith really is and should be fun to follow up on in the next issue. Llovet’s art continues to impress in graphite, rougher sort of look. Color is exceptionally well done, like in the detailing of sunglasses of a stranger in one scene, or background of a friend’s apartment. The club scene is electric thanks to an interesting use of lines conveying sound and the hum of the crowd in backgrounds via silhouette. The erotic scene in this issue continues to keep things tasteful without a single genital in sight, although there is a certain something on panel that might shock you. I enjoyed this second outing with Faith thanks to the subtle weirdness layered into the realism of the story. There are dark things at work in Faith and Poppy and I’m dying to see how they manifest further.

    I think theres an interesting story in here, but its a bit clunky and uneven. Every time it seemed to be going in an interesting direction, there was some graphic content dropped in, almost as if they remembered they hadnt had any that issue. (Its a bit HBO in that way...) Not Azzarellos best. I think there’s an interesting story in here, but it’s a bit clunky and uneven.

    Una trama bastante floja y que se enrevesa para ser más edgy pero que sólo te hace querer pasar las hojas más rápido a ver si pasa algo. El dibujo está muy bien y salva un poco. No creo que la retome cuando vuelva.
