sabrina1

Writer: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Artist: Robert Hack

Remember Sabrina Spellman? Archie Andrews friend from Greendale who lived with her Aunts Hilda & Zelda & pet cat Salem? She was an orphan with platinum blonde hair & a boyfriend named Harvey. Her friends & frenemies included her cousin Ambrose & classmate Roz. She was a cheerleader & part time waitress at the soda shoppe……………an average teenage girl in most ways. Except that she was a witch answering to the head witch Della!

She even had a television show. In her own words…………….

Well Sabrina has changed a little bit since Melissa Joan Hart portrayed her………………………

sabrina meets harvey kinkel all over again :)

Imagine everything I described to start in the typical Archie style. Now imagine it in the style of ‘The Walking Dead’. If you have read ‘Afterlife With Archie’……….by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa in fact!……….then you will know exactly what I mean. It is creepy & horrifying & the art is lush & bleak & overall perhaps the most fun comic books made today!

This issue basically just retells the story of Sabrina but in such a new way…………….the final page made me jump! The story & the art work make this the 2nd best horror comic book you can read………..right after ‘Afterlife With Archie’!!!!! 

My Rating: 4.5/5
