“Can Orla O’Reilly embrace her destiny in order to bridge the divide between humanity and the faerie world? Orla, the youngest in a long line of hedge witches, finds herself pulled back to her hometown after the death of her grandmother: Mamo. Without Mamo managing magical relationships between the townsfolk and the fae, the seas are impossible to fish, the crops have soured… and Jo Manalo’s attic has been taken over by a poltergeist! Now, Orla and Jo will both be pulled into worlds they never wanted to be part of. Can the two girls work together to save the town?
MAMO #1 features main cover art by series creator Sas Milledge and variant covers by acclaimed artists Trung Lê Nguyễn (The Magic Fish) and Veronica Fish (Sabrina).”
What a fun first issue! Magic is running rampant, and young Jo needs help from Orla – a witch. Specifically, the granddaughter of the village witch, Mamo. It’s a sweet story with witchy elements, and definitely a fun one for anyone that enjoys things along the lines of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
The art is cute, beautiful, and appealing. I love the character designs, the depictions of magical things, and the scenery. The colors are perfect and the lettering is great.
