LIFE AND DEATH ARE INTERTWINED IN HEARTBEAT FROM BOOM! STUDIOS

BOOM! Studios has announced Heartbeat, the next project from creator Maria Llovet, debuting in November 2019. The five-issue mini-series is described as “a dark, violent, decadent, disturbing story, in which life and death, blood and love, are inextricably intertwined.”

Eva, a high school outcast, finds herself witness to a horrible secret: the most popular boy in school enjoys the taste of blood and will kill to get his hands on it. Horrified and intrigued, Eva lets herself be pulled into Donatien’s macabre world. He offers the escape she has been looking for…but how much is Eva willing to betray her moral code in order to find something that gives her life meaning? And will she—or Donatien—ever find redemption?

“The idea for Heartbeat came from seeing the Japanese movie Kokuhaku (Confessions). In this movie, they mentioned a pair of girls that were fans of a psycho-killer, and the concept made me think, what if my main character was to see the person she liked doing something terrible, what would happen? Which values would be put above others?” said cartoonist Maria Llovet. “Heartbeat was also a point of inflection in my career. After I finished it, I reconsidered absolutely everything about my art so I’m very excited that Heartbeat is going to be published by BOOM! Studios and will be able to reach so many new readers!”

"This series lives in the space between dark secrets and longing desires, and is absolutely addictive with each page turn, as we wonder just how deep Eva will be pulled in," said Amanda LaFranco, Editor, BOOM! Studios. "Maria has entranced readers with her stunning and sensuous illustrations in Faithless, and she continues to impress in Heartbeat, with the characters, designs, and a twisted original story of her own."

Heartbeat #1 is set for release on November 20th, 2019.
