Sabrina the Teenage Witch
Sabrina is a teen witch who's struggling with balancing the double life of high school and her burgeoning powers. Newly relocated to Greendale with her aunts Hilda and Zelda (also witches), Sabrina is trying to make the best of being the new girl in ...more
This one, however?
I think Thompson hit on a nice happy medium. A rebooted modern version that doesn't include cannibalism or incest. <--it can only go up from there, right?
This was a genuinely sweet story, but it di ...more
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. ...more
I read a ton of Archie comics as a kid but only a handful of Sabrina stories. My main exposure to Sabrina was that television show starring Melissa Joan Hart about a thousand years ago. I saw some comics pro, I forget which one, say this was one of the best comics of 2019 so I picked it up when the Archie website was having a sale.
I don't know about best comic of 2019 but this is damn good. Kel ...more
I think Kelly Thompson is a very talented writer. She has a lot of good voices for multiple characters. I also think Sabrina is a character that can work in any decade, she's charming, sweet, and badass. So Kelly decides to update her, make it more modern, more school problems as always, while also dealing with the wicked magical side of the world. This creates a fun, sometimes dangerous, but also witchy experience.
If you're a fan of Sabri ...more
This was fun! It had a bit of a slow start but then picked up later on.
Salem is a national treasure and I love Sabrina here, also...the art style is gorgeous? The facial expressions are HILARIOUS and as an artist myself this is peak comic art and I love this way more than those same face (and Artstyle) Marvel/DC comics.
Only thing I didn’t like was the love triangle and girl on girl hate in the beginning (which gets softened pretty quick tho, so I hope there will be some development in ...more
I vaguely remember watching Sabrina, The Teenage Witch back in the 1990s on Channel 7, T.G.I.F. Must be because it was after Family Matters, which was my favorite show for awhile. There's her teacher, Professor Sampson, Radha and Ren Kinkle; best friend, Jessa Chiang...
Here's a new adventure with Sabrina Spellman struggling to balance her academic with her personal life. This ends in a cliffhanger!
Yay, an Archie comic published comic I didn’t dislike! Okay now don’t get too excited, this doesn’t mean I was a fan either!
So I will say I absolutely LOVE the artwork! Seriously, this style is so fun and cartoony, it is absolutely wonderful!
Salem (referring to the cat) is great in this comic and I was pleasantly surprised by the story’s unpredictability.
Okay, it’s not all good. I honestly didn’t care about the non-cat characters. The dialogue, while fortunately not falling int ...more
'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 o ...more
Tired of the dark and demonic Netflix Sabrina the teenage witch series? Well here’s a fun take on Sabrina that feels like the old 90s tv show with a mix of “real” magiks. Sabrina is living with her two aunts and talking cat Salem. As if starting a new school wasn’t hard enough, evil creatures start to emerge from the nearby woods. I really liked this series, for it being young adult it doesn’t feel kiddie. The art and colors are amazing and I really liked the character ...more
Tucked in the back is the first issue of Archie by Nick Spencer Vol. 2: Archie & Sabrina, and that was just a dreary soap opera affair. Definitely skipping that book. ...more
Salem is a perfect sassy ball of cuteness and I hope he appears more in 'Something Wicked!' (Honestly my only complaint is that there wasnt enough Salem in the first couple of issues).
Unlike Archie where drama concerning romantic interests/rivals make up a good chunk of the plot, in StTW the burgeoning relationship(s) is clearly not Sabr ...more
This was a fun return to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I wasn't really into the Chilling Adventures because it was too dark for me, but this had a nice balance of fun and darkness. Some of the dialogue was on point! "If you can't enjoy riding a giant sassy winged cat on a perfect fall night, well then what's the point of saving anything anyway, right?"
Content: some mild language ...more
Distancing herself from the Riverdale crew, this is pure Sabrina - not as dark as Chilling Adventures, not as twee as her early adventures, but a lovely middle ground that combines the magic and mystery of the former with the romance and teen drama of the latter. Thompson's characters are fully formed from the get-go, and her Sabrina is independen ...more
