BOOM! Studios has provided the first look at Mamo #1, kicking off the five-issue series by illustrator and cartoonist Sas Milledge (The Lost Carnival: A Dick Grayson Graphic Novel). The miniseries sees a young hedge witch return to her hometown following her grandmother’s death where she finds mysterious magical disturbances and an unlikely new friend. The series begins in July 2021.
“Can Orla O’Reilly embrace her destiny in order to bridge the divide between humanity and the faerie world? Orla, the youngest in a long line of hedge witches, finds herself pulled back to her hometown after the death of her grandmother: Mamo,” BOOM!’s synopsis reads. “Without Mamo managing magical relationships between the townsfolk and the fae, the seas are impossible to fish, the crops have soured… and Jo Manalo’s attic has been taken over by a poltergeist! Now, Orla and Jo will both be pulled into worlds they never wanted to be part of. Can the two girls work together to save the town?”
Mamo #1 features a main cover by Milledge with variants by Trung Lê Nguyễn (The Magic Fish) and Veronica Fish (Sabrina). It will be in comic shops on July 7, 2021.
