First it was Keanu Reeves and now it seems Game of Thrones and Solo actress, Emilia Clarke, fancies herself as a writer having never produced a single comic in her life. Luckily for her it’s co-written by someone who does know comics, and writing; Marguerite Bennett, with art provided by Leila Leiz.
The book is called M.O.M.: Mother of Madness, and is a mix of action and comedy as we follow Maya, an “under-the-weather scientist by day, over-the-top superhero by night, and badass single mom 24/7.”
Talking with Entertainment Weekly, Clarke explained the series in more detail:
“We’re always calling mothers superheroes, and I’m like, what if they were? What if they legitimately were superheroes? Maya has had a very hard life, and she finds herself in a place where everything that makes her unique, she hates and is ashamed about. It’s only in the discovery of her powers that she finds her true acceptance of who she is.”
Each installment of the series will be an extra-length issue filled to the brim with comedy and chaos.
M.O.M.: Mother of Madness #1 will be available on Wednesday, July 21.
Now, how about a preview?
