Buffy’s Friend Willow Gets Her Own Miniseries

BOOM! Studios has announced Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Willow, a special five-issue comic book miniseries, from award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki and acclaimed artist Natacha Bustos, that 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. 

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Willow, features a main cover art by fan favorite artist Jen Bartel and variant art by Mirka Andolfo. The first issue comes to shelves in June 2020.

In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight.

Wonder Woman #750 delivers “a Brave New World” by Scott Snyder, Bryan Hitch, Mike Spicer, and Tom Napolitano. Get a First Look.

Wonder Woman #750, on shelves this Wednesday, is an all-star 96-page celebration of the Amazon Princess by longtime favorites and acclaimed new voices! This oversized gem tells tales from Diana’s past and present, along with major implications for the future of DC’s first Super Hero!

With the publication of Wonder Woman #750, DC returns to legacy numbering for Wonder Woman, gives a glimpse into Diana’s distant past, and heads boldly towards the future!

Storytellers contributing to the issue also include Colleen Doran, Mariko Tamaki, legendary Wonder Woman creators Gail Simone, Liam Sharp, Nicola Scott, and Greg Rucka returning to the character, and more! Wonder Woman #750 also features pinup artwork by Ramona Fradon, José Luis Garcia-López, Emanuela Lupacchino, Bilquis Evely, and Travis Moore.

One of those major implications was teased in 2019, that Wonder Woman’s legacy precedes all other Super Heroes in the DCU’s overarching narrative. A hint at what that looks like can be seen in Wonder Woman #750’s “A Brave New World” eight-page story by Scott Snyder, Bryan Hitch, Mike Spicer, and Tom Napolitano.

Check out this first look:
