Dark Horse’s dystopian fantasy ‘Motherbridge: Seeds of Change’ coming May 2022

‘Motherbridge: Seeds of Change’ explores motherhood and myth.

Press Release

Dark Horse Comics announced a new original graphic novel that explores motherhood and myth in the dystopian fantasy Motherbridge: Seeds of Change. From the award-winning author George Mann and rising artist Aleta Vidal, the OGN arrives in comic shops on May 18th and book stores on May 31st, 2022.

In a statement, Mann said Motherbridge has been in the works for years. “In some ways, it’s a reaction to the global difficulties we’re all living through at the moment—climate change, species extinction, isolationist politics—but it’s also very much a story of hope and love.” It’s a story about family, “and about how even the smallest acts of compassion can change the world for the better. It’s been a joy to work on this book with Aleta and watch her bring Hayley and her world to stunning, vivid life.”

Vidal added, “This story is a tribute to diversity and love for our world, with a family finding each other in the middle and enlarging it along the way. This is a great love story. Working on things that I believe in, teaming up with people who share those beliefs like George, gives me the strength to carry them out. I’ve drawn from the soul every line.”

So what’s Motherbridge about?

In the aftermath of a failed utopia, an exiled woman fights to be reunited with her children by harnessing the mythic power that changed the planet forever.

Twenty years ago, the World Mother awoke, forming an enormous “worldbridge” from manmade ruins and knotted vegetation that spanned the globe. Borders fell, millions migrated, and legendary creatures returned to the forests. But recently, the World Mother has gone silent, and the worldbridge has begun to wither. Borders are being reinstated. Now, one woman, cast out by her adoptive nation, must assemble a team of outcasts to reawaken the World Mother and bring down the wall separating her from her family.

“Motherbridge is a story very close to my heart, and one that’s been bubbling away in my subconscious for many years. In some ways it’s a reaction to the global difficulties we’re all living through at the moment—climate change, species extinction, isolationist politics—but it’s also very much a story of hope and love. At its heart, this is a tale about family, both biological and found, and about how even the smallest acts of compassion can change the world for the better. It’s been a joy to work on this book with Aleta and watch her bring Hayley and her world to stunning, vivid life.” – George Mann

Working on things that I believe in, teaming up with people who share those beliefs like George, gives me the strength to carry them out. I’ve draw from the soul every line.” – Aleta Vidal
