LOS ANGELES, CA (November 21, 2019) – BOOM! Studios is proud to reveal new variant cover art by fan favorite artist Paulina Ganucheau for HEARTBEAT #2, the next issue of the new original five-issue series by comics creator Maria Llovet (Faithless, Loud), a dark, violent, decadent, disturbing story, in which life, death, blood, and love are inextricably intertwined, available in December 2019.
After witnessing a murder, Eva now possesses a terrible secret—Donatien, the most popular boy in school enjoys the taste of blood…and is willing to kill for it. Eva knows she should turn him in but can’t help her attraction to Donatien. Even though she knows he is a murderer—or perhaps because of it—Eva wants him.
HEARTBEAT #2 also features main cover art by series creator Maria Llovet.
