Game of Thrones‘ Mother of Dragons is about to make her debut in the world of comic books with Mother of Madness! The actress will serve as co-writer of a three-issue superhero miniseries with co-writer Marguerite Bennett and artist Leila Leiz. The series will be published by Image Comics.
A new press release from Image reveals some key details about the plot of 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… Maya activates her freakish superpowers to take on a secret sect of human traffickers. “
Entertainment Weekly interviewed Clarke about the new project, and she had this to say about her work: “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.”
The first issue will feature covers by Jo Ratcliffe and Jen Bartel. The book will be available in comic shops starting on Wednesday, July 21st, 2021. It will also be available in a variety of digital formats.
