BOOM! Studios has announced The Last Witch from writer Conor McCreery, and artist V.V. Glass will arrive in January 2021.
On the day of an annual festival, young Saoirse’s father and entire village are destroyed by the vengeful Cailleach. Now, on the run with her mysterious Nan and her younger brother Brahm, Saoirse discovers that the blue-black birthmark across her shoulder that has always made her an object of teasing is actually a powerful witchmark, which allows her to resist dark magick…and take it for herself.
Nan must teach Saoirse to control her powers so that she can combat the dreaded Cailleach and her devious handmaidens, before they can release the terrifying Eater of Worlds from the faerie lands — and destroy all living things!
“THE LAST WITCH is the perfect story for all the magical humans out there who are on the verge of discovering their destinies,” said Shannon Watters, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios in a press release from the publisher. “Vengeance, fantasy, and fate all combine in this exciting new adventure series, and we can’t wait for readers to catch a glimpse of the magic Conor, V.V., Natalia, and Jim are brewing!”
