Publisher BOOM! Studios has changed plans for The Last Witch. Originally announced as a two-book dark fantasy series debuting in December, it will now be split up into single issues with the first chapter set for release in January. The publisher did a similar process for Wynd earlier this year.
Written by Conor McCreery, illustrated by V.V. Glass, colored by Natalia Nesterenko, and lettered by Jim Campbell, the young adult series tells the story of a young woman destined to fight dark magic and shows the greatest magic of all lies inside of us.
On the day of an annual festival, young Saoirse’s father and entire village are destroyed by the vengeful Cailleach. Now, on the run with her mysterious Nan and her younger brother Brahm, Saoirse discovers that the blue-black birthmark across her shoulder that has always made her an object of teasing is actually a powerful witchmark, which allows her to resist dark magick…and take it for herself.
Nan must teach Saoirse to control her powers so that she can combat the dreaded Cailleach and her devious handmaidens, before they can release the terrifying Eater of Worlds from the faerie lands — and destroy all living things!
“The Last Witch is the perfect story for all the magical humans out there who are on the verge of discovering their destinies,” said Shannon Watters, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Vengeance, fantasy, and fate all combine in this exciting new adventure series, and we can’t wait for readers to catch a glimpse of the magic Conor, V.V., Natalia, and Jim are brewing!”
The Last Witch #1 is set for release in January 2021. It features a main cover by series artist V.V. Glass and variant covers by Jorge Corona and Peach Momoko.
