BOOM! Studios has announced the July 2021 release of Mamo from illustrator Sas Milledge, about a young hedge witch who returns to her hometown after her grandmother’s death.

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 Milledge has magicked into existence an exciting new world for us to explore, filled with the most delightful witches, magic, and mystery,” said Sophie Philips-Roberts, Associate Editor, BOOM! Studios in a press release. “MAMO is a fresh new take on the modern witch, and also, an insightful look at what it’s like to grow up, move away, then come home as an adult to deal with family and legacies long forgotten.”
