She was assisted with the graphic novel by Marguerite Bennett, who drew comics for DC and Marvel.
Emilia Clarke, who gained worldwide fame after playing Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, created her own comic strip in which a single mother became a superheroine. As the actress told Entertainment Weekly, work on the graphic novel M. O. M .: Mother of Madness “went on for three years. The drawing of the characters was assisted by artist Marguerite Bennett, who has worked with DC Comics and Marvel for a long time.
The heroine named Maya, who suddenly discovered her superpowers, fights slavers, and her mask looks like a balaclava of the Pussy Riot members. Emilia does not disclose other details. She noted that the world lacks strong female characters, especially if they are “from the people.”
The actress has always appreciated the daily feats of mothers, so she dedicated the comic to them. An absolutely female team worked on the project. “It was a wonderful creation experience and a phenomenal creative process,” she said.
“She’s funny, she’s cruel, and she’s just an ordinary woman trying to figure out her problems. But with the addition of some useful feminine abilities. It couldn’t be more feminine, it couldn’t be more fabulous. I wrote this book from the bottom of my heart and created it only with love, ”Clarke wrote in a post dedicated to the first cover of the comic.
The presentation of the project will take place on July 21.
