Faith is bored as hell. And Hell has noticed.

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

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.

What’s it about?
There’s a girl named Faith who meets a girl named Poppy. They start fucking, weird things start happening and that’s basically all I can say without spoilers.

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 won’t let me show but just trust me, if you decide to read this you’ll
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.

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.

Sex, magie, umělci a takové slabší, neforemné cosi.
Každý prožívá krizi středního věku jinak. Většina mužů si koupí nové auto nebo narazí mladou partnerku. Bendis si napíše komiks o tom, jak vždycky chtěl být tajným agentem (Cover). A Azzarello napsal komiks ve kterém mladou umělkyni (a asi čarodějku) souloží tajemný, postarší týpek celý v černé a jeho dcera. Kdyby si koupil to auto, tak jsme možná i ušetřeni.
Možná jsem jenom moc otupělý, ale šokující scény na konci každého komiksu byly většinu

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

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

So this graphic novel was definitely that very graphic. I still don’t 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 don’t pick this up. Some scenes where very sexually graphic so I don’t 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.

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 didn’t really need THAT many sex scenes...and I think the story didn’t them, too.

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 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 ...more

Una chica quiere ser artista...pero también cree en la magia, sabe que hay cosas mas alla de lo que ve el ojo humano y si, tiene razón, y todo es sumamente sucio, asqueroso y demoniaco y me encanto.

El año pasado leí THE DISCIPLINE, que traia sexo, sectas, sagas y violencia, aqui, la idea es mas extrema y mucho mejor llevada, además, encontre muchos comentarios negativos sobre este comic pero...¿en serio?, que muy grafico, que no se de que trata, que no me cuenta nada...y hombre, es que esa es la

I think there’s an interesting story in here, but it’s 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 hadn’t had any that issue. (It’s a bit HBO in that way...) Not Azzarello’s best.
Could not finish it. Did not like the illustrations and too much sex for me to enjoy. Not a fan.

I don't know what I just read but I think I like it? I'm pretty much always here for horror and sex smashed together into a weird slurry soup.

One volume in and I'm still not ready to say what the hell am I reading. But it's fascinating to watch, read and experience. Definitely one of the best art work of the year.
