    4.5 starsWow. Talk about some real witchy women...In the world of Archie Comics, Sabrina the Teenage Witch is your magical girl next door. Sweet, pretty, & head-over-heels in love with her high school sweetheart, Harvey Kinkle. In the regular comics, Sabrina is always trying to sneak around to do good with her magic - despite her two aunts and cat (Salem) trying their best to get her to act a bit more like a real witch.In this, the characters are...

    I must have a dark soul to enjoy so much seeing my childhood favorites twisted and perverted by modern day graphic novel artists. I LOVED Archie's gang when I was a kid, but I'm happy as a clam as an adult to see them killed, and turned into zombies. Now, it's Sabrina's turn, and boy, is this one DARK!Seems there are more witches about than we ever suspected. Why, over in Riverdale, there's a blonde and brunette duo you might recognize who practi...

    I decided to read this after hearing it was going to be made into a TV show on the CW.I loved the whole vibe of this. I liked that it was set in the 1960’s and the artwork matched perfectly. It had the right blend of vintage throwback and horror. As for the story, I liked the darker take on Sabrina. The first couple of issues had a lot of backstory, but once it got to main plot I was hooked. Overall, this was a fantastic spooky read. I cannot w...

    Everything I know about Sabrina I learned from Melissa Joan Hart. This is kind of different. I'm sure that's partly because this version is taking its cues from the comic, which I've never read. But I'm also quite sure that the older comics didn't portray the witches as being explicitly Satanic, nor did the aunts shop for groceries in the graveyard. So, yes, it can be kind of dark. But it's a darkness that works, though Sabrina does sometimes com...

    This might be the biggest surprise of the year for me when comes to comics. The chilling Adventures of Sabrina are actually chilling. So Sabrina starts off screwed up. Her father wants to take the baby from her mother. Sabrina's mother tries to run but is hunted and when the baby is ripped from her arms she is turned into basically a vegetable. Then you get a little bit of fun learning who Sabrina is and we get to her teenage years. Then you find...
  • Sana
    2 1/2 stars.I don't really read graphic novels, but when I saw this one I knew I had to get it. This book was way different than the Sabrina the Witch show I used to watch when I was eleven years old. This book is dark, bloody, and just contains a lot of disturbing images.On the eve of her sixteenth birthday, the young sorceress Sabrina Spellman finds herself at a crossroads, having to choose between an unearthly destiny and her mortal boyfriend,...
  • Magrat Ajostiernos
    1970-01-01 y con un arte genial, pero una vez más esperaba más. Empiezo a pensar que espero demasiado de los cómics que leo, porque siempre acaban decepcionándome...Aquí he echado muchísimo de menos algo de CARISMA en los personajes, especialmente de Sabrina que oye, es la protagonista pero no sabemos nada de ella y es una especie de muñeco al que le pasan cosas.... Toda la brujería está bien trat...

    UPDATED 07-28-16: And the trade is now OUT, with my highest recommendations!***Originally read as single issues. (TPB will be out imminently as I write this.)Archie comics has been reimagining (and revitalizing) their comics line over the last few years. And while I’m reading most of the entire “NewRiverdale” line, it’s the 2 Horror titles (“Afterlife With Archie” and “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”) that are generating the most ...
  • Callie Rose Tyler
    My Review of first issue.Wow, so this is intense. I mean like Satanist witch coven, human sacrifice, bath in holy water after reading intense, especially when you consider the source material.The main villain, Madame Satan, was chilling and fascinating. There are also cameos from the Riverdale gang.Overall, an amazing reinvention of a classic comics character that blows Afterlife with Archie, Vol. 1: Escape from Riverdale out of the water. There ...
  • Gary
    Chilling indeed!Witches have been trending lately, and Aguirre-Sacasa and Hack are without a doubt producing the best witchy comic out there (sorry to both Wytches and Harrow County, but it's true).Initiation day is coming for young Sabrina, and she must decide if she wants to sign her name in Satan's book and become an immortal witch, or turn her back on her heritage and be a normal teenage girl. When some family baggage literally returns to hau...
  • Cameron Chaney
    This was a fantastic surprise. Who knew Archie comics was capable of putting out something so dark and messed up? There were parts I wasn't crazy about, but overall I couldn't put it down and I can't wait for the second trade (or a hardcover deluxe edition, maybe?). This earns a solid four stars from me. I'll definitely be checking out the rest of Archie's new comics as they've definitely caught my attention.
  • Nadine
    I loved the Sabrina the Teenager Witch television show, so I’m excited for the reboot! When I found out the new show is based on this comic I had to read it! It’s very different from the original show and I loved it! It’s definitely more mature than the original show. I’m excited to see what the show does with it!
  • Pamela
    I was raised on a steady diet of Archie comics and used to love the Sabrina spin-off. I was also a fan of the TV show back in the 1990s. So of course I was very excited to find this adult horror re-boot, which starts off with so much promise but then fails to follow through. The first chapter (issue 1) is great, but then the arc gets bogged down. The biggest problem is the main villain, "Lady Satan," who is neither interesting nor innovative. Do ...
  • L. McCoy
    I hate to say it but I’m pretty sure I’m never going to like Archie comics.Tried Archie- Didn’t care for it.Tried that TV show, Riverdale, to see if the gritty murder stuff makes it any better- Couldn’t even get through the first episode.Tried this because I loved the Sabrina TV show when I was younger but kinda grew out of it and love dark horror stuff now- D***, I wish I liked this more.What’s it about?Sabrina the teenaged witch is re...
  • lauren ♡ (wonderless reviews)
    Uhhh this was not what I was expecting. I knew it was darker than the sitcom, but I was expecting it to be comedic-horror but uhhh Nope. This is Straight Up Horror my friends and I love the artwork so much. Kinda not sure what to rate it??? It's somewhere between 3 and 4 stars because it did hold my attention, but at times it felt like it was trying way too hard??? Also, I was kinda uncomfortable with the way suicide was portrayed in one scene. N...
  • Vanessa
    Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa continues his modernized horror reinvention of the Archie-verse with his take on Sabrina and needless to say, this is no Melissa Joan Hart joint.Sabrina, Harvey, Salem, Aunts Hilda and Zelda are all here, but they've been thrown into a fun, dark, and occasionally tragic tale of witchcraft, revenge, teen angst, and Satan (in full goat drag, naturally.) Will Sabrina let Harvey Kinkle take her to the prom and punch her v card,...
  • Misty
    I'm really on the fence about this one, but I'm going to keep with it and see if it wins me over.
  • Pamela ✨I Blame Wizards✨
    A deliciously dark reimagining of Sabrina Spellman's origin. Harking back to old horror tropes it was a really fun read, with a vintage feel.
  • Mariana
    Sabrina la bruja adolescente regresó y viene acompañada de Salem, sus tías, de mucha sangre y rituales satánicos.Me encantó. Le doy 4 estrellas porque el estilo de dibujo no es mi favorito, pero la historia es genial <3
  • Claire
    A super creepy and dark take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Excellently illustrated, well-paced and awesome.
  • Michelle Morrell
    Daaaamn, this isn't your grocery store Sabrina comic, that's for sure. I was holding this to read in October, hoping it followed in the darker footsteps of the excellent "Afterlife with Archie." And indeed, that is what I got. On the eve of Sabrina's 16th birthday, conveniently on Halloween, she has a choice to make. Live as a mortal or write her name in Satan's book and become a witch proper. Only, an evil force wants to punish her for her fathe...
  • Mina Rehman
    Did someone say Sabrina Spellman?!Review: Salem, who doesn't even look like Salem, doesn't have nearly enough of a presence, Harvey is kinda lame and Sabrina isn't like Sabrina we know and love AT ALL. And what in the "devil's" name was up with Betty and Roni acting like total a***holes?Maybe it's more of a it's-me-not-you thing here. I absolutely adored Sabrina the teenage witch as a kid, and the decision to check this comic out was based solely...
  • Jonathan
    3 stars "Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble." This is definitely a much darker take on Sabrina than my limited knowledge of the TV show, with art to match.I liked it enough to read the next volume, but that's about it.
  • Barb (Boxermommyreads)
    I almost feel like I can't gush about this book enough. In fact, I know I've already recommended it several times. This is definitely not the Sabrina the Teenage Witch I remember. This Sabrina is dark and twisted and bloody and gory and... you get the point right.Sabrina's father was a strong and powerful warlock who defied the Witch Council and married a mortal. Together, they produced Sabrina. But when he wanted to hand his baby daughter over t...
  • Morgan
    This isn't your cute Melissa Joan Hart sitcom, this is a drama with a dark Satanic twist. I actually really liked this and thought it was better than Afterlife. The art was perfect. Retro style with a what felt like a bloodstain coloring. It really gives you that uneasy vintage feel. Excited for the second volume, but hoping I don't have to wait too Afterlife...
  • Robin Bonne
    A chilling version of Greendale. Loved the classic horror comic throwback art style. Reading this in anticipation of the new Sabrina tv show.

    When I was just a little girlI asked my mother, what will I beWill I be pretty, will I be rich?Here's what she said to me:Que Sera, SeraWhatever will be, will beThe future's not ours to seeQue Sera, SeraWhat will be, will be—Jay Livingston, Ray EvansWhen I was just a little boy I read Archie Comics every week, with those kooky kids Betty and Veronica, Archie and Jughead. Fifties and early sixties sockhop stuff, innocent fun, mostly, as I recall...
  • Scott
    This is my favorite new comic book series. As soon as I finished reading this trade, I wanted to go to the store and pick up the comics themselves and keep following this story.The series is true Sabrina: half-mortal teen witch torn between her family's magic and life in high school with her dreamy boyfriend Harvey. The only difference is that in this version, witches are proper fucking witches -- Satan worship, blood sacrifice, dancing naked und...
  • Travis Duke
    Damn this was good. I know very little about Sabrina and less about Archie but it doesn't matter they start you at square one. This is horror, no two ways about it, it has witches ripping off faces, necromancy, and lots of blood. Sabrina is a teenage witch who is about to turn 16 but any high school drama is bound to be evil. Sabrinas two Aunts raise her as she grows up and because her dad was a law breaking warlock and basically a jerk. The writ...
  • Kendall Moore
    A radical reinvention of a classic character. Bursting with horror references galore and a tone that walks the line between disturbing & darkly humorous with an art style that pays homage to the classic horror comics of Creepy/Eerie. This has to be read to be believed.
