    Mamo is a patient, ethereal, and beautiful work for fans of the magic of all sorts. Read it for the mystery and the curious and unique magical world, but read it a second time for the beautiful art. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jul 7, 2021

    While Mamo #1 is very much a staging ground, it is a beautiful one. One that is a perfect introductory comic for younger readers and a nice little jaunt through the magic of childhood for older ones. I'm truly excited to see what Milledge has in store for all parties involved and I can't wait to see how she continues to bring that magic to life. Read Full Review

    Yet another unique take on a fantasy world of witches from BOOM! Box. Most of the issue is spent forging a relationship between two new characters so that we have someone to root for. All it takes is a little extra context planted in the dialogue and setting to sell the rest of their world.
