BOOM! Studios Announces New Mature Title ‘Luna’ For February 2021
by Brendan M. Allen
BOOM! Studios has announced Luna, a new original five-issue series by comics creator Maria Llovet. In this darkly erotic series, an innocent young woman finds herself drawn to a mysterious commune where the search for immortality and the true power of enduring love collide.
‘When Teresa fatefully crosses paths with the Family of the Sun, she believes them to be exactly what anyone else in the late ‘60s would expect – a hippie cult whose leader claims to have met the divine. But secret blood rituals, powerful drugs and sex runneth amok will bring Teresa face-to-face with the truth about the Family, herself and the dark secret behind her dreams.’
Maria Llovet is a multidisciplinary artist from Barcelona, who has published several graphic novels, including There’s Nothing There and Loud. Llovet is currently the artist on Brian Azzarello’s series Faithless from BOOM! Studios. Her illustrations have been characterized by cinematic influences in their visual narrative, with sex and death as central themes.
Luna is a lysergic story about love and destiny, but also betrayal, lies, and the lengths to which we would go in order to protect the ones we love.This is the first story I’ve ever written for the monthly comic book format, and I’m very excited to share it with readers everywhere.
Print copies of Luna #1, for Mature Readers, will be available for sale in February 2021. Check out the preview art below.
