Momma is an American comic strip by Mell Lazarus (1927-2016) that debuted on October 26, 1970. Initially distributed by the Publishers-Hall Syndicate, it later was handled by Creators Syndicate and published in more than 400 newspapers worldwide.

Although Lazarus based the character on his own mother, when he showed it to her, she thought the character was based on his aunt, exclaiming, “You caught Aunt Helen to a tee!”

Creators Syndicate announced Momma's (and Mell Lazarus') death July 10, 2016 in a comic strip memorial that included other grieving comic strip characters.
