Loud, the new original graphic novel by Faithless' Maria Llovet published by Black Mask is out this week. If you can find a copy. Looks like the fuss over Faithless transferred to orders for the graphic novel a little later in the order cycle. As a result, the graphic novel has completely sold out at Diamond Comic Distributors and copies have been allocated to comic stores. Meaning, stores won't get all that they ordered.
There are currently no plans to reprint the Loud hardcover, with a paperback months and months away. If you were wanting a copy and you didn't pre-order (and even if you did), you may want to contact your local store. Like, now.
LOUD written & illustrated by Maria Llovet. $16.99 | full color. Hardcover | 96 pages. MATURE
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).
Lovingly designed for release as a hardbound edition, LOUD is the kind of book that will get into your spine and give you flashbacks twenty years later, you'll turn to your friend and say "remember when comics had guts and creators made books like LOUD?"
Good luck everyone. Here's a preview…
