In an exclusive interview, Game of Thrones star and Emmy-nominated actress Emilia Clarke revealed she has been working on a new project: a comic book series. The series, titled M.O.M.: Mother of Madness, will debut July 21 at Image Comics and run for three issues. In addition to Clarke, GLAAD Award-nominated Marguerite Bennett will help write the books, with Leila Leiz providing art.
M.O.M.: Mother of Madness follows struggling single mother Maya as she takes down a ring of sex traffickers. While Maya starts off ashamed of “everything that makes her unique,” through her journey she reaches a place of “true acceptance of who she is.”
In the EW interview, Clarke described the series as “a Deadpool-esque blend of ‘a lot of silliness’ and tongue-in-cheek humor, combined with a very current feminist sensibility.” While Maya’s powers have yet to be revealed, Clarke laughed while revealing Maya’s monthly cycle plays a part in them.
