After the death of her grandmother Mamo, the young witch Orla O’Reilly returns to her small hometown. There Orla is faced with more challenges than she expected. In order to quiet the spirit of her grandmother, Orla must figure out what happened to Mamo’s mislaid bones. Sas Milledge’s debut novel is something I’ve been looking forward to for years, ever since this graphic novel was in a very early stage and being uploaded onto Tumblr! 

— Andrea C.

Mamo weaves together magic, nature, grief, romance, adventure, and complex family relationships all in one beautiful story. It follows Orla, a witch who must return home after her grandmother passes, and Jo, who quickly bond with Orla after enlisting her help. This book captures all the magic of a Studio Ghibli film with its own unique style. I immediately fell in love with it!

Family matters aren’t just hocus-pocus for this young witch!

Cartoonist Sas Milledge (The Lost Carnival: A Dick Grayson Graphic Novel) makes her astonishing debut in her first original graphic novel that answers the question of how we all reconcile our responsibilities with our dreams for our own future. Orla O’Reilly, the youngest in a long line of hedge witches, is compelled to return home after the death of her grandmother, Mamo. In the wake of her Mamo’s passing, seas are impossible to fish, crops have soured, even Jo Manalo’s attic is taken over by a poltergeist! And to make matter worse it appears that the cause is Mamo, or her mislaid bones that is. Can Orla shoulder the responsibility of quieting her Mamo’s spirit, saving her hometown, and will she have to step up as the new witch of Haresden like Mamo always wanted? Collects Mamo #1-5.
