SECRET INVASION Star Emilia Clarke Has Written A New Comic Called M.O.M. - Check Out A Preview

There's a new Image Comics series on the way called M.O.M.: Mother of Madness, and it was co-written by none other than Game of Thrones alum and recent Secret Invasion cast addition, Emilia Clarke!

Following last night's news that Emilia Clarke has joined the cast of Marvel's Secret Invasion Disney+ series, EW has announced that the Game of Thrones star also has a new Image Comics miniseries on the way.

Co-written by Clarke and Marguerite Bennett (Angela, Bombshells), M.O.M.: Mother of Madness follows a single parent named Maya who gains superpowers and uses them to take on a secret cabal of human traffickers. The twist? Those powers only manifest themselves... at a certain time of the month!

Clarke explains that the genesis of the idea began as a joke.

"About three years ago, I was in a car with a bunch of friends and was like, 'Hey, guys, wouldn't it be really funny if…' And then I woke up the next day and was like, 'That would be funny. That would be f---ing cool. Why not?'"

"She can do all of these wicked things, but they all come from the fact that she is a woman who has a menstrual cycle," Clarke says of her main character. "I thought it would be cool to have all the things that women don't like about themselves, flip that, and make those the things that make her superhuman."

M.O.M. has an all-female creative team behind it, including illustrator Leila Leiz, contributor Isobel Richardson, and cover artist Jo Ratcliffe. The first issue is set to hit shelves on July 21, and you can check out the cover and a couple of preview pages below.
