BOOM! Studios have announced Mamo, the five-issue debut comic book series from acclaimed illustrator and rising star cartoonist Sas Milledge (The Lost Carnival: A Dick Grayson Graphic Novel), about a young hedge witch who returns to her hometown after her grandmother’s death, only to find an unlikely new friend and a series of mysterious magical disturbances that need to be solved, available in July 2021.
Orla O’Reilly has never been the type of witch to put down roots. The youngest in a long line of hedge witches, Orla finds herself back in the town where she grew up after her grandmother, Mamo’s, death. But without Mamo around to deal with the town’s magic, it’s quickly fallen into chaos and now there’s a poltergeist in local Jo Manalo’s attic!
When Jo goes to Orla for help, the young hedge witch is reluctantly pulled into the town’s complicated relationship with the Fae, and Jo gets a crash course on the surprising world of magic that lies right beneath the surface of her normal, boring hometown. They’ll have to work together to find the source of all their otherworldly problems but are the two up to the task?
Sas Millegde is an artist based in Australia, she has previously done work for DC Comics, BOOM! Studios, BlinkInk, and Passion Pictures amongst others.
Speaking of the series Milledge says “I am so excited to finally share MAMO with the world! This book has been circling around my head for the better part of a decade, and I’m so glad it has finally landed here in its final form; a story about family and friendship filled with witches, birds, faeries, and trolls!”
Mamo #1 features cover art by creator Millege as well as variant covers by acclaimed artists Trung Lê Nguyễn (The Magic Fish) and Veronica Fish (Sabrina).
Print copies of MAMO #1 will be available for sale in July 2021 exclusively at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
