Willow has been feeling different ever since she gave up half her soul to save Xander. In the absence of that missing piece of her, she has been having issues including the inability to sleep and a general unease. She tries going to Giles for help, but nothing seems to be working.
When she finally finds the ability to sleep, she awakens inside a nightmare where demonic versions of herself and her friends tell her that the gift she gave might have doomed them all. Willow will literally have to fight her own demons if she has a chance of escaping with what’s left of her soul intact.
Jordie Bellaire takes the reader back to the core friendship between Xander and Willow and it is worth the read. Giving the focus to Willow and allowing the reader to see the aftermath of her decision gives the reader a sense of who Willow is as a character and allows for more drama and conflict outside of Buffy and her mission. A well written and entertaining issue that teases some interesting drama to come.
David Lopez and Sas Milledge deliver some interesting and well-done art in the issue as well. Both artists compliment each other’s styles and the tone of the story.
