Gr 10 Up—This horror flick reimagining of Sabrina the Teenage Witch is a lushly cinematic and refreshingly grim departure from the charmingly sweet heroine of yesteryear. This isn't your mother's teenage witch: although Sabrina is dealing with common adolescent woes, she's also consorting with the devil and feasting on a sacrificial goat. The story takes place in the days before Sabrina's confirmation into the coven, coinciding with her 16th birthday. In the upcoming ceremony, she must choose to either live as an immortal witch, infinitely powerful but incapable of romantic love, or as a mortal, destined to die but also able to spend her life with her dreamboat boyfriend, Harvey. Meanwhile, Madam Satan, a powerful witch with a vendetta against Sabrina's father, is accidentally raised from hell by two familiar Archie-universe figures; Betty and Veronica are wryly reinvented here as ditzy but powerful witches. The five-issue collection ends in a diabolically creepy cliff-hanger. This iteration is set in the 1960s, incorporating the social upheavals of the time while visually alluding to Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, and other paranormal horror films. Hack's scratched filmstrip style, set in sepia tones, makes the inevitable violent splashes of red provocatively grotesque. Some nudity and violence make this more appropriate for older teens. VERDICT Deftly balancing suspense, violence, and wit, this is a welcome and frightening addition for lovers of horror, suspense, and graphic novels; hand to fans of Emily Carroll's Through the Woods and followers of The Walking Dead.—Anna Murphy, Berkeley Carroll School, Brooklyn

I loved the whole vibe of this. I liked that it was set in the 1960’s and the artwork matched perfectly. It had the right blend of vintage throwback and horror.
As for the story, I liked the darker take on Sabrina. The first couple of issues had a lot of backstory, but once it got to main plot I was hooked.
Overall, this was a fantastic spooky read. I cannot wait for the show.
The premise for this book is that witches like the ones that were persecuted in early America are real and worship Satan. In fact, this is tied into the history of the characters, which made the book stronger to me. There are little things the creators included that tie back to this fact as well. It's not going to change the story if you miss them though.
Anyway, Sabrina's mother and father are out of the picture so she resides with her aunts. Given the nature of the relationship between Sabrina's parents, they decide to move to another area and join a different coven. They prepare her to become a bride of Satan on her 16th birthday. Of course things don't go as smoothly as expected.
As much as I enjoyed the story, I felt conflicted on the art. It fit the time period wonderfully. Sometimes the character faces seemed off and that was a little jarring. The coloring is done well, but towards the end of the book it gets a little sloppy. This may have been intentional to match what is going on. It just didn't work for me. The book is worth checking out to read something different.
