A Young Witch Faces Her Fate in Your First Look at MAMO #5
“A stunningly gorgeous comic.”—ComicBook.com
“Read it for the mystery and the curious and unique magical world, but read it a second time for the beautiful art.”—AIPT
BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at MAMO #5, the final oversized issue in 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 November 2021.
Is friendship more powerful than fate? Mamo’s angry spirit and moth familiar prove to be too much for Orla and Jo and it starts to look like there is no way out of this except to do what Mamo always wanted. Will Orla complete the circle and embrace her destiny as the new witch in town, becoming as much a part of Haresden as the tides, or is there another way?
MAMO #5 features main cover art by series creator Sas Milledge and variant cover art by acclaimed artist Trung Lê Nguyễn (The Magic Fish).
