The third arc of the Eisner Award-winning BITTER ROOT comes to an epic conclusion that will decide the fate of humanity. For the Sangerye family, it means making another sacrifice while searching for hope during hopeless times.

INGRID: It’s the end of a third arc that has been fabulously thoughtful and even optimistic during times of despair.

INGRID: In the world of Mamo, hedge witches have an important role to play in keeping the balance between humans and fae.

This is a rich story that deftly weaves around the magic to make something truly wonderful.
