Check out the official description of the five issue limited series below:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Willow #1 brings Willow face to face with the truth of her past…and plants the seeds for a future no one could’ve predicted.

After everything – and everyone – she lost to the Hellmouth, Willow is leaving Sunnydale on a world-spanning road trip in search of her true self. She stumbles on a community of people like her: lost witches looking for answers…but there’s a darkness at the heart of it, one that reminds Willow of something she’s felt before, something that she fears inside herself.

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 threat Buffy never prepared her to face…or the rest of the world will pay the price.

Willow #1 features main cover art by Jen Bartel (Blackbird) as well as variant cover art by illustrators Rosemary Valero O’Connell (Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me) and Mirka Andolfo (Unnatural). Colorist Eleonora Bruni and letterer Jodi Wyne also worked on the issue.

The series follows the character Willow from the cult classic television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The show ran for seven seasons from 1997 – 2003, picking up both Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.
