Collects Scarlet Witch (2023) #1-5, Scarlet Witch Annual (2023) #1. There is a door that appears only to those who need it most. On the other side is a witchcraft shop. If your hope is gone, there you will meet…the Scarlet Witch! Wanda Maximoff is familiar with hitting rock bottom - and now that she's finally found peace, she's pledged to help others who are languishing at their lowest. But when a woman falls through Wanda's door with a terrifying story of a town gone mad, the Scarlet Witch will have to muster all her wits and chaos magic to deal with an insidious threat! And when Viv Vision arrives, exhausted and terrified, Wanda must dive into Viv's dreams to find the cause of the android's suffering! Plus: Polaris stops by for a sisterly sojourn into Sub-Atomica! And Darcy Lewis needs defending from a deadly warrior! Plus: When a newly rejuvenated Agatha Harkness learns of the Scarlet Witch's recent absorption of Chthon, she decides to educate her former student on the dangers of such an endeavor. But Wanda is not the meek pupil she once was - and Agatha's intentions are not so straightforward.
Steve Orlando made a name for himself at DC Comics, writing Wonder Woman, various Batman titles and Martian Manhunter. His Midnighter series and its sequel Midnighter and Apollo were nominated for a GLAAD Media Award. Orlando arrived at Marvel to celebrate a legendary character’s 50th anniversary across three Curse of the Man-Thing one-shots. Orlando contributed to Marvel’s Voices: Pride and returned to the intersection of super-heroics and horror with the Darkhold storyline.

Sara Pichelli worked in the animation industry as a storyboard artist and character designer before taking a chance in the comics business. After breaking in in her native Italy, she was a layout assistant for David Messina on Star Trek for IDW. In 2008, she was one of the winners of the ChesterQuest International Talent Search and has since worked for Marvel Comics on such titles as NYX, Runaways, Eternals, X-Men: Pixie Strikes Back and Namora. She joined writer Brian Michael Bendis on Ultimate Spider-Man, and together the pair introduced the new Spider-Man, Miles Morales, in the pages of Ultimate Fallout and Ultimate Comics Spider-Man. They continued Miles’ adventures in Spider-Man, and paired him with Peter Parker in Spider-Men and Spider-Men II. Pichelli later reunited with Bendis on Guardians of the Galaxy.
