Because you demanded it: Volume Two of the critically acclaimed Sabrina the Teenage Witch series by Kelly Thompson and Veronica & Andy Fish! Sabrina saved the day-saved her friends, her family-the whole town of Greendale really, and she should be riding high. But things are never quite that simple. She's trapped in a love triangle, she's having trouble balancing the mortal and witch parts of herself, oh yeah, and she's being blackmailed. As if all that wasn't enough, while trying to help Radka and Ren with their...supernatural problem, her aunts suddenly starting to look like people she can't trust. What's a teen witch to do?!

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Apr 1, 2020

    Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Something Wicked #1 is a great debut issue from a team that are firing on all cylinders with a character they clearly love. It's also a fun distraction to all the craziness in the world today. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 1, 2020

    Everything about this book has the right amount of polish to it and the experience that comes from the team working on it in a previous book, which is expected. The end result is something that's very accessible to new readers but also provides more than enough for existing readers to sink their teeth into. It's a good looking book with some great designs across the board in the Fish style that I enjoy quite a lot while Thompson's script keeps it moving and flowing with a lot of things covered. This one really is just setting up for the run but it imbues you with a great sense of everyone that's a part of Sabrina's life and to want to see more of where it's all going to go.

    Rogues Portal - Stephanie Pouliotte Mar 20, 2020

    Something Wicked #1 is set up to be a good entry point for new readers, but it's also deeply rooted in the last arc (the first volume is on sale now). Thompson starts off with the newest malevolence to threaten Greendale, but most scenes will have a greater emotional impact if you're familiar with the characters. That being said, you get more than enough context to orient yourself, and there is a short recap on the credits page if you need it. Read Full Review

    It's a comic which packs a surprising punch in terms of deeper content to suss out and unpack. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Mar 30, 2020

    All in all Sabrina: Something Wicked #1 is a solid start to a new story. With all the introductions out of the way, I hope subsequent issues can bring a greater focus to the tale. Read Full Review

    I liked the first volume of this run, but I found myself not really getting excited about this new issue. The reason became apparent when I started reading. This is a pretty good comic. The characters are all nicely written and mostly fun. But that's it. It's not blowing anyone away. It's not Kelly Thompson's best comic out right now. But she's a great writer, so the competition is tough, I guess. This just feels like sort of an easy-reading, quick story and not something to really parse through, and that's okay. It just hampers my excitement, is all.
