We’re living in a Sabrina the Teenage Witch renaissance and it’s a complete joy! Sparked by the dark and angsty Chilling Adventures of Sabrina the contemporary interest in everyone’s favorite all-American teen magical girl is at an all-time high. That’s why we were so excited when Archie Comics announced a new version of the classic character penned by Kelly Thompson and drawn by Veronica Fish. And we’re even more exhilarated to share an exclusive look at the first interior pages from Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1 right here!
The team behind the book is just as stoked to be bringing the series to life as we are to read it. “Sabrina was the first character I was exposed to from the Archie universe and the one I felt most endeared to growing up. I was a huge fan of the Melissa Joan Hart TV show, and hope that affection comes through in the art. Sabrina’s world has so much potential, so many opportunities to explore, I really wanted to dive in. I hope people enjoy it!” artist Fish exclaimed.
Thompson shares her collaborator’s enthusiasm. “I’ve been excited about doing Sabrina from the very beginning, and when Veronica came on board I knew we’d have a great book. But when her actual pages started coming in I was blown away. I think we’ve got something really special here,” Thompson continued. “Sabrina The Teenage Witch is such a perfect blend of high-school horror meets high-school hijinks, romance, and comedy and I can’t wait for people to see what we’re cooking up.”
As is evident in these pages, Fish’s art is a complete change from what we’ve seen before from the original Sabrina comics and their vintage charm or the dark horror of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. You’ll have to wait until March 27 to see the finished books, but you can pre-order the first issue from your local comic shop right now.
