(W) Mariko Tamaki (A) Natacha Bustos (CA) Jen Bartel
* After everything – and everyone – she lost to the Hellmouth, Willow is leaving Sunnydale behind for a new school that promises "to help you prioritize your true self."
* But Willow soon learns that all is not as it seems, and if your true self isn't what the school thinks it should be…well, don't worry, they'll help you get there. By any means necessary.
* Now, truly alone for the first time in her life, Willow must rely only on her instincts – and her magic – to save herself from a different kind of threat than Buffy ever prepared her to face!
* Award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki (Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass) and superstar artist Natacha Bustos (Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur) bring Willow face to face with the truth of her past… and plant the seeds for a future no one could've predicted.In Shops: Aug 05, 2020 SRP: $3.99
