SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH Rides Again in New Comic
We’ve recently been spoiled for Sabrina the Teenage Witch content due to Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. But for some fans the dark vision strayed from the cheery and cute witch they know and love. Luckily,Â Archie Comics has something for everyone. They announced on Thursday that a brand new Sabrina comic from the stellar creative team of writer Kelly Thompson and artist Veronica Fish will be hitting shelves in 2019.The book looks to be bright and colorful, harking back to the classic comic character rather than the dark Netflix reboot. Thompson highlighted the juxtaposition the new title will offer in a press release: “Because Chilling Adventures of Sabrina already exists and is brilliant, readers should expect something a little different in our book. One of my favorite things to do is come in and modernize a wonderful classic and I hope with this incredible team on board we can do something really special with Sabrina The Teenage Witch.â€
The official solicit gives us more insight into what we can expect from the series. “In the first issue, on sale March 27, Thompson (Uncanny X-Men, West Coast Avengers) introduces us to Sabrina and her supporting cast: her witch aunts Hilda and Zelda, her feline familiar Salem, and more. Sabrina has to learn to navigate both of her worlds while saving them from supernatural threats. Fish (Archie, Spider-Woman), with husband and inker Andy Fish (Blackwood), renders it in an appealingly bright and colorful style that expertly blends fantasy with the down-to-earth setting of Riverdale’s neighboring town, Greendale. Archie Comics hopes to continue the series beyond the initial five issues if fan response reaches the heights they expect.”Will you be ordering this magical offering from Archie Comics?
