BRAND NEW SERIES! Sabrina is a teen witch who's struggling with balancing the double life of high school and her burgeoning powers. Newly relocated to Greendale with her aunts Hilda and Zelda (also witches), Sabrina is trying to make the best of being the new girl in town which so far includes two intriguing love interests, an instant rivalry, a couple of misfits that could turn into BFFs, and trying to save the high school (and maybe the world) from crazy supernatural events. NBD!

    Comicsverse - Jeremiah Johnston Mar 29, 2019

    SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH #1 is a promising start to a reboot series -- or, put simply, I enthusiastically recommend it. Kelly Thompson managed to blend the wit and humor of Sabrina with the semi-serious drama of finding one's place in high school and dealing with the supernatural. Veronica Fish and Andy Fish blend this script with an expressive art style that is truly their own, better seen with your own eyes than described by me. All in all, I look forward to seeing where series will go. Read Full Review

    Overall,Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1is a treat. It's light, airy, and has just enough magic to hook you into the next issue. With a wendigo making itself known, we'll have to pick up issue number two to see how Sabrina gets out of this supernatural first day of school. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Apr 9, 2019

    I'll be interested in seeing where this mini goes. I was a little surprised at the tone, considering I thought Archie would want to jump on the success of the Netflix adaptation of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but this is tonally and thematically more in line with the regular Archie line, focusing on the warmth and heart of the characters instead of on the darkness. I'm definitely on board to see what the next four issues has in store for us. Read Full Review
