    4 STARS!!!I'd never read the original Sabrina comics but I was a huge fan of the TV series in the 90s and when I read there was a horror-ish graphic novel remix of Sabrina I jumped at it and downloaded #1. I loved how dark and creepy it was and I think this would actually make a really awesome TV rendition of Sabrina, all dark and scary but still full of teen drama and angst. I look forward to reading on in this series. :) - Richard

    The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch is Volume 1 of the latest Sabrina series. It is my understanding that this is the inspiration for the upcoming TV series of the same name due to air sometime this year. When I learned this, of course I needed to check out the graphic novel. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is apparently also the creator of Riverdale, the dark Archie comics which have inspired the already running TV series titled Riverdal...

    This was a very quick read. Only bought the first issue when I was back home for Thanksgiving. Ordering the next few issues immediately. I love how dark and gritty it is. The art is decent, but the facial expressions always seem the same and the look of a character can change drastically from one page to another that I sometimes didn't recognize them. Loved how it was Betty and Veronica who accidentally summoned that creature. Overall, I like thi...

    Pretty cool! Tho I am still not sure if it is really same as the TV show cuz the beginning was really dark but the rest was exactly like in the show...Anybody read this?

    Mit der Fernsehserie im Hinterkopf in diesem Comic zu starten, ist definitiv nicht die beste Idee. Ich bin aktuell auch unschlüssig, wie mir diese düstere Abwandlung von Sabrina gefällt und lese erstmal weiter, um mir eine Meinung zu bilden ... Okay, selbst nach Band 5 finde ich die Serie noch immer nett, aber nicht umhauend. Da weitere Bände nicht in Kindle Prime enthalten sind, ist das somit das Ende meiner Lektüre. Bis auf einen fiesen Cl...

    I love Sabrina everything, so I had to read this creepy series starter. I'll be finishing the series, but will need some episodes of the TV show in between for a palate cleanser.

    Definitely not for kids! If you enjoy a warped, darker tale, once in a while, try this one out. I liked having all of the cultural references with it set in a different time period, somehow it lightens the mood of a family of cannibalistic witches. (My review for #2 is pretty much the same, but you should definitely read this line firsrt, should you decide to read the series).

    A dark, gritty and demonic take on Sabrina the teenage witch. I was expecting light and fluffy and what you get is horrorly gruesomeness. The black and white makes the art stand out more and somehow makes it more startlingly creepier. Can't wait for the grapic novel to be released.

    This is a bloody, horror-infused version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, immensely different than the old TV show with Melissa Joan Hart. I love this incarnation, can’t wait to read #2!

    After hearing that this new incarnation of Sabrina was coming to television, I had to get the first issue and read it.This is not your mom's Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The story is decidedly creepy and steeped in the supernatural, yet somehow it maintains its roots for a teenage audience, while managing to interest adults as well. After reading this first issue, I'm looking forward to the television show.If you want some chill with your Sabrina, ...

    A New Take On A Classic CharacterI grew up on the Sabrina series of the 90s, who read the vintage comics later, so I was really unsure how I'd feel about this new, darker take. So far, though, I like it. The tone is more mature, the writing is tight, & I really like the artwork. You definitely have to take it as a completely new story, not a reboot or continuation of any that you've read/watched before, & remember, it's not meant for kids, but it...

    Clichéd maybeA little cliché, Sabrina, a witch who just happens to be a teenager. I've seen this somewhere before. That being said, the initial story was quite interesting and as it was free I'll probably read the rest at some point.

    MehThe story was all over the place but I really loved the art work. I’m hoping to see a more cohesive plot for Vol 2.

    Great I love that Sabrina was so different, a completely different take on the Sabrina I grew up with. Loved it!

    it was a little boring at first but I think it was getting a little interesting at the end but it's not scary at all I was hoping for something that is a lot scarier than that but I think I'll continue it anyways I wanna know what's going to happen..

    I loved these so much I always loved Sabrina the teenage witch growing up but looking at the cover I didn’t even make the connection till I started reading it. The characters may be the same but the story was so dark and twisted and creepy I loved it so much. It’s basically the complete opposite of the TV show the girl isn’t changing her outfits with a point of her finger she’s summoning Satan, eating people and sacrificing animals. So ye...

    Wow, I liked this way more than I originally thought I was going to. This was just supposed to be something really short to read, but I ended up really loving this. I have never read the Archie comics, but this makes me want to read them because I am now coming to understand why there can totally be a crossover between Sabrina and Riverdale because there are crossovers all the time in the comics. This is making me realize there are supernatural e...

    5/25/17 EDIT:Changing this to 1 star. I no longer wish to continue on with the series and realized I really didn't like this take on Sabrina.4/13/172.5/5Not sure how I feel about this series...I loved Sabrina the Teenage Witch tv show so seeing it in a darker light has me a little conflicted emotionally. I think I'll give the next few a try and see how I feel after.

    I got this for myself for Halloween and was certainly surprised by how gritty and dark this reboot was. As I devour each page I'm thoroughly impressed with how well each character is developed moving it away from the purely shock horror genre. From tree-entrapped Edward and brain melted Dianna, the outcast Ambrose to the heart broken, vengeful Madame Santa; each persons backstory brings a new element to the tale. Even Sabrina's first twelve years...

    NOT for children. Unless of course you think your children would be ready to read about cannibalism, Satanism, child sacrifice, blasphemy and myriads of other subjects handled in a way that should be off-putting to an adult and much more to youth and definitely NOT for children.Though the characters may be familiar to those who watched the TV Sabrina the characterizations of those characters will be very unfamiliar. Not family friendly, not funny...

    Two stars for the artwork which was the only thing I found appealing about this series. Being a long-time fan of Archie comics and the 60's and 00's Sabrina comics, I found this series quite distasteful and I was not able to appreciate the demonic and dark twist on Sabrina. The characters and their backstories were completely different to the original (i.e. Salem is a Warlock NOT a human). And while I can see why people who are not fans of the or...

    Updated darker Sabrina the Teenage WitchI loved this darker updated version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It had some backstory about her parents and her aunts that she lives with. Definitely reading the series.

    So I was a tad dubious when a friend told me about the new Sabrina the Teenage Witch comics. I mean, Sabrina. Come. On. But this takes Sabrina to a whole new - very dark - place. Set in the universe of Afterlife with Archie, Sabrina is the daughter of a warlock and a mortal, making her different from other witches. All she wants is to keep her witch-life hidden from her boyfriend, but a witch by the name of Madam Satan has it out for Sabrina. Sab...

    I love the cover art of this comic. I'm not sure which version I have because it's not the original, or the collector's but it is so pretty. I'm not a big fan of the artwork inside the comic book. It's not bad, it's just not as good as the cover. I am however interested in the story. I thought this was a pretty good set up, and a promising storyline. It's also pretty creepy. Considering how cheap comics are, I'll probably continue with the next i...

    This is NOT the teenage witch that I am used to. I will not lie, I was a fan of Melissa Joan Hart's Sabrina and that made me curious about this graphic novel. Yes, Salem, Hilda, Zelda, and Harvey are in this comic, but that is kind of where the similarities end. (view spoiler)[This is a delightfully dark version of the story where Sabrina's father used magic against her mother and committed her to an insane asylum where she was received a lobotom...

    So much greatness, devious magicI grew up watching the live action Sabrina TV show. If you are looking for the same silly romp, look elsewhere. This comic is gritty and fiercely frightening.Pros: great gritty viscous artwork, silly 1960s pop culture references, engaging story tellingCons: only for those who want genuine horror, new retelling of favorite comic charactersI mention these cons as they are because I know that some comic fans are keen ...

    I really liked these comics. I am delving more into the comic world and I am definitely liking what I am finding! I love horror novels and I've read a few horror graphic novels, so far these were one of my favorites. I think they're even basing the new tv show that's coming out partially off of this. I like the darker side of these comics...everyone expects (probably because of the tv show) that nothing that bad will ever happen, but I think that...

    1970-01-01
    This is a new much darker version of the kid/family friendly Archie Brand Comic Sabrina the Teenage Witch. This is NOT for young kids like the older series were. This is a modern dark horrifying version.I have to say I REALLY like the artistry in this. The style is modern, but also 50’s/60’s like. I love the beautiful colors. It’s bright but still dark and ominous and brooding all at once.The story in this issue is about Sabrina’s birth, ...

    A deliciously creepy reprise of the peppy TV and comic franchise. Aguirre-Sacasa's Sabrina is still a naive teenage girl with burgeoning magical abilities, but the teenage angst and highschool drama takes a back seat in favor of occult rituals and coven politics, with dark glimpses of backstory and the fate of Sabrina's parents. I loved the light-hearted sitcom growing up, but this is exactly the Sabrina I can really get into as halloween-loving,...

    Darker version of that Teenage WitchThe chilling adventures of Sabrina is a twisted and much more horror oriented version of the original Archie character. This is a fresh start for new comers and a different take on a classic Archie comics character for returning fans. This is a must read for fans who want Sabrina to have a darker tone but still has that fun levity of the original.
