Sabrina the Teenage Witch Reviews

  • Kerri

    4.5

    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.

This Sabrina is funny and a little awkward -- I liked her a lot. Salem is, as ever, cool and sassy, Harvey is sweet, the aunts are brilliant. Although this is a new story, in a lot of ways reading it felt quite nostalgic, reminding me constantly of my childhood love of Sabrina!

    I'll be keeping an eye out for the next installment.😺

    This is the Sabrina I know and love! The story was really good and the art and colouring were perfect. The lettering was sometimes a little hard to read but I think that's because I read a digital copy on a tablet. Super fun!

    Loved the story and I’m obsessed with the art

    i haven’t read a graphic novel that good in a long long time!!

    when’s the next one coming out?!

    Loved this!

    I really liked this! It sits somewhere in a happy middle ground between soapy teen fantasy, like the original TV show, and more serious action like Chilling Adventures, leaning more towards the former. Tonally, it's very similar to early Buffy, which I think is a good fit for a modern take on Sabrina. Introducing a second boy interested in Sabrina besides Harvey raises the soap factor just a bit. Normally, I am not thrilled with love triangles, but I like the way Sabrina is handling it (she

    I think I might be falling under the spell of Sabrina Spellman. Enough to maybe read some of her original Archie comics from the sixties, despite review warnings of how sexist and dated they are.

    '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

    I think I might be falling under the spell of Sabrina Spellman. Enough to maybe read some of her original Archie comics from the sixties, despite review warnings of how sexist and dated they are.

    '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 of her incarnations, then you are sure to enjoy this. The constant stays to her character are thus: She's white, platinum blonde and pretty, and hetero; Salem, everyone's favourite cat familiar; Sabrina's aunts Hilda and Zelda; a Witches Council (containing, more often than not, the high witch Della/Enchantra); and love interest Harvey Kinkle.

    I don't think that Sabrina has ever been this introspective, self-aware, deductive, capable, brave, and full of independent agency (take note, 'Chilling Adventures'). She's still a messy teenage girl, who justly equates high school with hell and her peers with monsters. She makes mistakes, and is in a love triangle between two hot boys, but the direction it takes subverts expectations somewhat. One of its merits is that is criticises toxic masculinity. I can't believe I'm actually finding a love triangle interesting! It's not a main focus, at any rate, thank Circe.

    Sabrina can fix anything, and fight for anything, when she puts her mind to it. She's proactive! Magical powers aside, she is a relatable heroine worth rooting for. She's a damn cool teen in this comic. Salem is as quippy, sarcastic and funny as ever, and receives his moments in the fun spotlight too.

    And "fun" describes 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch (2019)' to a W, I, T, C, and H. It's modern magical fantasy witch action. It can be read by all ages - never mind its Teen rating. Its lovely, colourful artwork doesn't stray too much from the Archie aesthetic. How simultaneously sweet and soft, and dark and dramatic, it is!

    A few plot threads are a little uneven, rushed, muddled and confusing, but it's not a tragic case. A few characters could have used more panel time, especially Sabrina's new friend Jessa Chiang, who is fat, Asian, and LBGTQ, and who leans towards tokenism. At least the obligatory mean girl, Radka Ransom, a POC (her brother Ren is also one of Sabrina's love interests), is interesting and is given depth and intrigue.

    I love too that the comic's cover pays homage to 'Kiki's Delivery Service'. It fits so well, even though Sabrina never actually rides on a broom once in this volume.

    Regardless, she is like a Magical Girl in this reboot. Her changing her hair colour from white to blonde every morning is just the beginning (she learns to embrace and love herself for who she is at the end, no worries!). Also she wears a crescent moon necklace, and a dark hairband and lipstick. To add anything more about her accessories and arsenal would be spoilery.

    Final Score: 4/5

    Let's get this out of the way first: I am among the crowd of individuals who were extremely upset when Chilling Adventures of Sabrina never returned, never completed its story arc, and will probably never be resumed. Fans were left with a dangling cliffhanger and a subpar Netflix adaptation that seemed like something straight from the CW. Flash forward to this reboot. I went in with negative feelings and very low expectations. Well, after breezing through the first volume, I am happy to report

    Let's get this out of the way first: I am among the crowd of individuals who were extremely upset when Chilling Adventures of Sabrina never returned, never completed its story arc, and will probably never be resumed. Fans were left with a dangling cliffhanger and a subpar Netflix adaptation that seemed like something straight from the CW. Flash forward to this reboot. I went in with negative feelings and very low expectations. Well, after breezing through the first volume, I am happy to report that fans do have something to mildly rejoice about. This series is very fast-paced, well-written, drawn well, and just plain fun. The horror and despair from Adventures are missing, but this has its own style and true fans of Sabrina will find a lot to like. I'm anxiously awaiting volume 2, and looking forward to catching up with the cast of the main Archie title as I hear Sabrina has joined them! If you're still looking for true horror from Archie, please check out Jughead: The Hunger, Vampironica, and the crossover with those two titles, and even Archie vs. Predator II! However, if you're only interested in Sabrina, and was upset that Adventures ended prematurely, you won't be disappointed by this reboot. Highly recommended for fans, old and new!

    I kinda, sorta, totally love everything that Kelly Thompson does! This was, you guessed it, fun. I mean, what else can you say about Veronica Fish art and Kelly Thompson writing? True to the spirit of the character but also a new, fresh take that was enjoyable to read. Highly recommend.
