From Mother of Dragons to Mother of Madness, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is set to make her comic book debut this July as she teams with co-writer Marguerite Bennett (Josie and the Pussycats, Angela), artist Leila Leiz (Horde) and Image Comics for the three-issue superhero series M.O.M.: Mother of Madness. Check out the cover and some first look interior artwork here…
“We’re always calling mothers superheroes, and I’m like, what if they were? What if they legitimately were superheroes?” said Clarke, who also signed on to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this week with a role in the Disney+ series Secret Invasion. “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.”
In M.O.M.: Mother of Madness, the mayhem begins with Maya, under-the-weather scientist by day, over-the-top superhero by night, and badass single mom 24/7. Deadpool action collides with Fleabag comedy when Maya activates her freakish superpowers to take on a secret sect of human traffickers.
M.O.M.: Mother of Madness #1 will go on sale on July 21st.
