Boom Series Started Out a Young Adult Book but Evolved Into Something Else

BOOM! Studiosí  current series Faithless from Brian Azzarello and Maria Llovet actually began as a young adult story but developed into an erotic thriller. Editor Sierra Hahn and Azzarello have known each other since 2005 but never worked together before so when they talked about doing a book the fact that he had never done a YA book before set them off on a path. The book changed according to Azzarello because, "It became really apparent that I can't write for a specific audience. I just write. So at one point I had to say, 'I'm just going to do this the way I'd normally do it.'" The story came first, and it became a question of how we push it. And we decided to push it more into erotica. Actually, I think it was better as Young Adult. I'm not kidding." And so the story of Faith, who is a young woman discovering just who she is became an erotic thriller with horror elements. Those elements lead to Faith sleeping with Poppy, who may be a demon or something else.
