Ash & Thorn Shows Women of Any Age Can Save the World

Lottie Thorn by Soo Lee

In April, Ahoy Comic is debuting a new series from writer Mariah McCourt and artist Soo Lee. Ash & Thorn is kind of like “what if Buffy was a lot older?” Lottie Thorn is selected as a new mystical champion to save the world, trained by Lady Peruvia Ashlington-Voss.

The first issue can be preordered now from your local comic shop with Diamond code FEB20 1416. I enjoyed seeing older women headine an adventure comic; it’s still rare to see female characters of that age doing something other than taking care of male heroes.

These covers, to issues #1 and 2, are by Jill Thompson.
