Review: Luna #1

By Maria Llovet

For fans of Faithless and Die comes a new dark thriller from acclaimed writer & artist Maria Llovet about a young woman named Teresa, who’s plagued by prophetic dreams that connect her to something powerful, something…divine.
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.
Immortality, magic and alchemy, and the true power of enduring love collide in this new series for Mature Readers.”

If you’ve been around long enough, you know by now – I REALLY LOVE CULTS. So I’m sure you can imagine my excitement for this first issue.

Everything about this book is stunning, with Maria Llovet behind the art and writing. It all feels like a wild trip, with the subtle unsettling feeling that’s pawing at you the entire time. Everything feels like it should be an intoxicating oasis, and that’s a really fantastic way of conveying what draws people into these sorts of situations.

Everything visually is beautiful. Maria Llovet has incredible talent, and it’s really shining in this issue. Psychedelic colors and imagery, beautiful scenery, and great character design. Especially Donna. I love a care free thick girl living her best life and looking amazing instead of being covered up in something frumpy and unflattering. *chef’s kiss*

Honestly, I want more immediately, and I can’t wait for the second issue. I want to see the bizarre ride we’re about to take.

Grab issue one this week!
