This is not the sweet witch that Melissa Joan Hart played in the mid-90’s TV show, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch. It is so much darker and grittier, and I loved it! The story takes place in the 1960’s, which is when Sabrina was first introduced in the Archie Comics Group, so in a way, they are going back to their roots with this storyline. Sabrina Spellman, her father, and aunts are dark witches. The kind that actually worship Satan. While Sabrina still seems pretty sweet, especially compared to the rest of her family, she has true evil lurking inside of her. And the times she lets it out in the graphic novel are wonderful. There is never a question as to if Sabrina will choose to be a bride of Satan, this shows what happens to her a few months before her 16th birthday, and the big night. There is a tragic Romeo and Juliet theme with her boyfriend, Harvey. Since he is a mere mortal, Sabrina is not allowed to lose her virginity to him (saving it for Satan), but teenage hormones are in full swing. There are also side stories, and we see what happened to her mom and dad, and we also meet Madam Satan, who is one devious woman. And we get cameos by Betty and Veronica, which is fantastic. The story was amazing, and the artwork was pretty good. If you want to read a different spin on Sabrina, or enjoy horror comics, this is one I would highly recommend.

Genre: Horror Graphic Novel. Number of Pages: 160. Perspective: Third. Location: Greendale. On her sixteenth birthday, Sabrina Spellman will have to choose to follow her destiny by signing her soul over to the devil to earn power as a sorceress. Or she can follow her heart and stay with her mortal boyfriend and friends. This is book one in the series (issues 1-5). After binge-watching the Netflix adaptation, I had to read the graphic novel version that inspired it. Now, this is nothing like the 90’s sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch that I grew up with. You have Sabrina, Harvey, the two aunts, and a non-talking version of Salem. But that’s where the similarities end. This version is deliciously dark! It has murder, cannibalism, Satanism, and more. It is not for the weak-hearted. It is rated teen+ so, I would say fourteen and up. Side note: I know some people who watched the Netflix version complained about the blurry edges and orange hues. But it is clear that it is supposed to mimic the visual style of the comics. I have more appreciation for the cinematography now. I’ve also been reading Archie comics and watching Riverdale, so it was cool to see some crossover. I know there have been rumors of whether or not the shows will crossover. I also liked seeing how they adapted the comics into a show. They did change a few characters and plot points, but it has the same overall feel. -Judging More Than Just The Cover Read full review here: https://judgingmorethanjustthecover.blogspot.com/2019/01/the-chilling-adventures-of-sabrina-book.html
