Comments: This is a Sabrina unlike what you have been used to. This comic is dark and foreboding. We are shown Sabrina's origin which is definitely very dark.
Their new home is a funeral home across from a cemetery. Now that is definitely a setting for witches.
Greendale Sabrina's new home is a quite place. Sabrina's new house has lots of interesting magical things inside it including her.
The art does have a pasty look to it but for this type of story it works. Sabrina is cute and mysterious.
A Succubus is roaming free and you just know Sabrina will end up encountering it.
Sabrina does provide one interesting tale with a touch od suspense and horror.
The backup story is from "Archie's Madhouse" issue # 22, written by George Gladir, pencils by Dan DeCarlo, inks Rudy Lapick and letters Vincent DeCarlo from October of 1962. The art style is so cute here. Sabrina is a cutely drawn beauty. Sabrina explains all about witches and how her life works. You get to learn a lot about her.
Sabrina whether a cute teen witch or something darker, something that could be and is dangerous she is entertaining in a haunting sort of way.

Comments: A beautiful woman emerges from the water she is nude and drawn with a gorgeous naked butt. Her face though is a monstrosity that will give you nightmares. Madame Satan is a witch and one with an evil sadistic side. She is shown enjoying the misery and pain that she inflicts.
The story movies along in both writing and art just like a horror movie would. There is a building of suspense.
Madame Satan his insinuated her way into Sabrina's life. Now she is close at hand and ready to strike.
This is shaping up to be a chilling tale that will have you on the edge of your seat and ready to jump out of it running screaming into the dark.

Comments: Sabrina's aunts are teaching her about the history of witchcraft. We do get a great introduction to what the main story is all about.
Ms. Porter or Madame Satan is all smiles and compliments for Sabrina while plotting her demise.
Sabrina has many things happening in her life. Her sixteenth birthday for one where she must choose to live as a witch or mortal.
The suspense is being built up. Sabrina's baptism is going to be something else. This ceremony is a start to Sabrina's future. The ceremony is all planned out and goes exactly as planned until they get a most unexpected guest.
The backup story is "Madam Satan" Madam Satan is pure evil as she goes after a man and all he can give her. It takes the power of goodness to stand up to her.
"Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" here Sabrina is presented with a touch of evil in her. Yes she is still good but her life style is always shadowed in the veil of darkness.

Comments: We do get a look into Harvey's past as he runs for his life.
Harvey stops running. He is thinking only of Sabrina and that he has to save her. It may very well be his last thought. Harvey does love Sabrina. She loves him as well.
The atmosphere though from her aunties and the coven is one of evil.
Sabrina does find Harvey in the woods. Things change after that. Secrets are kept.
The emotions are strong in regards to Harvey. Sabrina is having a tough time dealing with what happened.
The whole story does have this atmosphere about it. It lets you know witches are around and they are real here.
"Double Date" Script Dick Malmgren, pencils Dan DeCarlo, inks Rudy Lapick, letters Bil Yoshida and colors Barry Grossman.
This story is an older one from the original comics. Harvey as usually is getting on Aunt Hilda's nerves. As things sometimes do they work out well for all. A happy ending for all the witches and mortals involved. Some nice cute art as well.

Comments: Veronica, Betty and Nancy are performing MacBeth's witches scene while dressed as cheerleaders. It is a disturbing sight and the cheerleader uniforms add a touch of sexiness to it.
Veronica and Betty are under the influence of Madam Satan. Madame Satan is shown leaving no doubt she is evil.
The atmosphere of dark magic permeate these pages. Madame satan is manipulating everyone.
The pages are given an old style look to them which does accentuate the style of this comic perfectly.
This story does draw from the Monkey's Paw story. Which was a terrifying one. That terror comes through here as well.
Riverdale is a town where evil dwells. Sabrina finds herself not such a good witch as a witch that prefers not to be as bad as others.

Comments: The comic does start off in a unique way telling the story with letters.
This issue explains about the two cobras that live in Sabrina's house and how they became cobras. They once were a prince and princess.
Next Salem tells us how he became a cat. Salem was a good man. He worked hard for the little he had. When it came time for him to step up and be mature and responsible he failed. Salem deserves what he got. Now he seems like a nice guy. Would he act as he did before maybe not but deep inside he has not really changed.
"Witch Pitch" is written by George Gladir and drawn by Dan DeCarlo. This story is from before Sabrina's comic became so serious.
Sabrina is a witch with a heart. Here we are treated to a short tale of love and magic. It is not only Sabrina who falls in love though. Love though does make everything alright. Sabrina is drawn so cute.
Sabrina than and now is always a magical delight that will enchant you.

Comments: Edward Spellman is shown as a child and called Eddie. He is illustrated to look just like Eddie Munster from the TV show "The Munsters".
Edward was a powerful sorcerer from the beginning. The demons he summons you have to see these creatures. Beelzebub will give you nightmares. It is a beautifully horrific illustration.
Now Edward as a boy was conjuring up demons and he is also trying to conjure up the lord of all things dark.
Edward grows up and we get a look at his world. He lived in a weird place of evil magic. Into this world is born Sabrina Spellman.
Zelda and Hilda are both ancient witches and they are powerful ones. When they are shown you can see their dark side oozing out.
So Edward in the present is just as evil as ever.
The backup story "Castle Hassle" with story by George Gladir, pencils by Bob Bolling, inks by Rudy Lapick, colors by Barry Grossman and letters by Bill Yoshida. How would you expect the meeting between a witch and a vampire to go? Well certainly not at all like this one does. This story will make you smile and the art is cute.
Edward is certainly a chilling character who will send chills up and down your spine. As will reading this dark intensely magical walk down the dark side of life.
