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 Bookcase - Jacob Cordas Jun 3, 2020

    But if it allows me to keep getting Kelly Thompson writing a character she was born to write for and Veronica Fish and Andy Fish drawing such luscious and dynamic pages, I'm going to be coming back as soon as I can for more. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Apr 15, 2020

    By the end of the issue, I definitely felt that it would have been a crime if BOOM! did not give this book a second volume to continue. Sabrina: Something Wicked #1 was worth the wait for the way that this creative team further immersed us into this world they are creating for Sabrina. 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.

    Geek'd Out - 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

    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

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Apr 5, 2020

    At the end of the day, Sabrina fans – particularly those who have already picked up the previous series – will find a lot to like here, although there's just about enough for new readers to entertain themselves with too. I'm hoping that once the series picks up some momentum and the more spooky aspects of the story are pushed to the forefront this could becoming something great, but for the time being this is still a serviceable beginning to the latest chapter in the life of everyone's favourite Teenage Witch.
