Dec 26, 2019 rated it it was amazing
This reminded me of the Melissa Joan Hart version of Sabrina in many ways, (a good thing!) but it was also different enough that it felt fresh and original.
A month or two ago I read Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, then watched the show -- I loved both, and really enjoy the darker take on Sabrina, but I have to say I really appreciated the lightness of this, the bright artwork with lots of colour, especially pinks and purples. This Sabrina is funny and a little awkward -- I liked her a lot.
I think I might be falling under the spell of Sabrina Spellman. Enough to maybe read some of her original Archie comics from the sixties, despite review warnings of how sexist and dated they are.

'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' in 2019, as penned by Kelly Thompson, she of the usually mixed quality bag, isn't about Satanism, or anything particularly dark or "adult", or particularly light and fluffy for that matter. I'll just say that if you like witches, and you feel nostalgic for Sabrina in any one

3.5 I liked this graphic novel, made me laugh a few times and reminded me of the tv show from my childhood, Salem is as adorable and sassy as always! Beautiful art work. Overall it was enjoyable. ...more

This is the Sabrina I know and love! The story was really good and the art and colouring were perfect. The lettering was sometimes a little hard to read but I think that's because I read a digital copy on a tablet. Super fun!

I kinda, sorta, totally love everything that Kelly Thompson does! This was, you guessed it, fun. I mean, what else can you say about Veronica Fish art and Kelly Thompson writing? True to the spirit of the character but also a new, fresh take that was enjoyable to read. Highly recommend.

Let's get this out of the way first: I am among the crowd of individuals who were extremely upset when Chilling Adventures of Sabrina never returned, never completed its story arc, and will probably never be resumed. Fans were left with a dangling cliffhanger and a subpar Netflix adaptation that seemed like something straight from the CW. Flash forward to this reboot. I went in with negative feelings and very low expectations. Well, after breezing through the first volume, I am happy to report ...more

Shelves: fantasy, comics
I really liked this! It sits somewhere in a happy middle ground between soapy teen fantasy, like the original TV show, and more serious action like Chilling Adventures, leaning more towards the former. Tonally, it's very similar to early Buffy, which I think is a good fit for a modern take on Sabrina. Introducing a second boy interested in Sabrina besides Harvey raises the soap factor just a bit. Normally, I am not thrilled with love triangles, but I like the way Sabrina is handling it (she ...more

Loved the story and I’m obsessed with the art
Dec 25, 2019 rated it it was amazing
i haven’t read a graphic novel that good in a long long time!!

when’s the next one coming out?!

here’s a list of takeaways

love the artwork

how they modernized sabrina

the balance of dark and levity

(which is difficult to balance)

seeing the new sabrina tv show shows us when you go really dark with her, it works, yet it’s hard to bring that levity back).. so i think this book is probably one of the best instances where Sabrina is portrayed with a good balance of levity and darkness. even tho some

A colorful, fun(ny), and adventure-filled take on Sabrina, like an amalgam of all the best iterations of the character. It manages to deliver a very YA spin while feeling nostalgic for the older sitcom as well as turning the formula into something compelling by introducing actual elements of danger and magic use that isn't restricted to hair-colouring spells. I'd call this superior to the okay but way too tryhard Chilling Adventures book.

I hope we see more of the aunts in future issues. And Salem is the BEST.

The parts with Sabrina were pretty good, but I still hate everything about Archie, which tied into the bonus side issue.

Fun & Charming and a perfect October read!
read as single issues.

I am super stoked that there will be more of Sabrina the Teenage Witch from this creative team because they KILLED IT in this arc! (All of the characters were great, but I especially loved Salem!) Also, the life advice of "you know someone is mean if they have RAD in their name" (paraphrased ;) is going to stick with me forever.

Ahhhh fav writer + artist! Pick this one up if you love seeing Sabrina being her best without too much boy drama, a Scooby Doo story, and color that deserves to be hung on your wall.

This is a really great mix of the 90s sitcom with a dash of darker tones. I’m excited for more!

Between the comics, cartoon, netfilx show, and the classic sitcom, chances are you've been exposed to Sabrina at least once in your life. Now we get the latest reboot, courtesy of Kelly Thompson, and it is well worth a read for both old fans and new.

Sabrina Spellman is new to the town of Greendale. on her first day at her new school she makes a new friend, a new enemy, crushes on two hot guys, and gets attacked by monsters in the woods.

Wait, what?

Something supernatural is going on at this

1) Ren’s cute... choose Harvey.
2) What a cliffhanger!
3) Frames her like a superhero, fighting bad guys. I guess she always has been, but there was physical kicking bad guy ass reminiscent of avengers going down here. Bad ass!
4) Love how feminist Sabrina is, and her confidence. She had both Harvey and Ren fighting over her, all she had to do was choose one, and instead she’s just like, “teenage drama? I’ve got bigger problems.” And left them standing there. The empowerment of her decision, like

(The following might be considered spoilers. It's vague but sorry anyway!)
A cat. A cat that speaks. Salem, Salem speaks. Salem is sarcastic and hilarious! I don't think I'm expressing how much I love him.
Besides that, there are beautiful illustrations with impressive colours, romance, different sexual orientations which are not the main characteristic of the person (important!), attractive siblings, mean girls and a good those of rivalries. Is there anything I don't like about this?!
I want,

Thompson and co absolutely crush this reboot. I've been a fan of Veronica Fish's artwork since she worked on the Archie reboot with Mark Waid, but this is on another level. The coloring alone is breathtaking. Sabrina's a fun character who opens up a weird section of the Archie-verse and Thompson leans into that, perfectly capturing the core of the character while also updating it to modern sensibilities. It's not Chilling Adventures, but it's also not the 1960s. Kudos to the team. The only ...more

Perhaps an odd choice to read this and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Vol. 1: The Crucible back to back, but it made for interesting comparison. Overall, I really liked the comparatively lighter tone of this one and got a good feel for Sabrina as a person. Sort of getting a strong Buffy vibe from the whole thing – in the best way.

This was a nice contrast to the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (both the show and the comic series), and I really enjoyed reading it! I've always been a fan of Archie Comics and this had the feeling of that time, as well as the live action TV show of my childhood. The art is lovely, the characters lovable, and I hope this continues!

I was so worried about how they would portray Sabrina before going into this but I must say that Thompson and Fish absolutely nailed it! A modernized version of the Sabrina that we all know and love, with a gritter edge and an intriguing love triangle. Absolutely stunning art and colouring by Fish, who remains one of my favourite comic book artists to date.

Love, love, love what the entire creative team did with this amazing Sabrina refresh. Thompson is so very clearly a longtime fan of Sabrina and pulls inspiration from so many of her past incarnations.

Truly a magical way to kick off my 2020 reading challenge.
