BOOM! Studios revealed a first look at The Last Witch #1, a young adult fantasy that aims to show that the greatest magic of all lies within all of us. Set for a January 2021 release, The Last Witch is written by Conor McCreery, with artist V.V. Glass, colorist Natalia Nesterenko, and letterer Jim Campbell.
‘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!’
