    The twist at the end of this issue may have Afterlife fans scratching their heads or leaning forward in their chairs, but the story of Sabrina is determinedly distinct enough that I can say with certainty: This is going somewhere very different, and it's going to be extremely interesting and terrifying to see.

    Comix I Read - Kyle Pitman Jul 30, 2015

    With The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #4 Aguirre-Sacasa and Hack deliver a story that's a little more psychological and character-driven. All the pieces are in place for an exciting climax, so I'm confident they'll flip the script and resurrect the next issue with new stuff for me to comment on. Read Full Review

    A series long in the making and worth every single moment put into it by reader and creative team Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a class act in horror and is outright gorgeous in its macabre presentation.

    All-Comic - Kayla Goulet Jul 27, 2015

    Sabrina is not really like anything else that's out there – how often do you get to read a book with a title character from everyone's childhood, in a grown-up book? It's absolutely something that every comic fan should be reading. Not only that, but every horror fan should be reading it, and everyone who ever read a Sabrina story as a child. This is a book that could turn non-comic fans into comic fans, it's that good. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Jul 29, 2015

    The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina 4 continues the standard of excellence Archie Horror has established. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is quickly becoming one of my favorite horror writers, and Robert Hack is perfect on this title. It's frightening, disturbing, and excellent. If you aren't reading this, then you're doing yourself a disservice. Dr. Josh gives this an" Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Leroy Douresseaux Jul 28, 2015

    Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is mad and brilliant. If EC Comics and the 1950s copy-cat horror comics that the publisher influenced had created graphic novels, they would look like this first story arc of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, "The Crucible." Sometimes, the witchery is so shocking in this comic book, I think that Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack might need some inquisition face-time, or perhaps to be dunked a time or two.

    Being a lifetime fan of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, I hold these stories up to a high standard that will never go down. I can honestly say that this issue proudly keeps up the good name of Sabrina. If you’re a fan of the comic books, TV show, and animated show, you definitely want to read this one. It’s a brilliant take with a fresh new storyline for our teenage witch—most definitely worth reading. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 29, 2015

    Well-done suspense with a pitch-black sensibility, some great dialogue, and intention echoes of Stephen King… Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jul 31, 2015

    So while I can't recommend this for everyone - it's certainly too graphic for young readers - but if you can get past the metamorphosis of Sabrina's character (it's certainly a logical progression), you'll love this book, too! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 30, 2015

    The long wait between new issues of Sabrina is always well worth it. The series is really coming into its own as it achieves a compelling blend of supernatural horror and teenage emotional struggles. The visuals alone are doing their part to set this series apart from the crowd. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Jul 29, 2015

    “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” is something far more complex and emotional than other titles in this genre while still being scary enough to be considered horror. This issue is a successful chapter of this new take on Sabrina. I do think that it's still a tough sell given the time between issues but the payoff has been great and there's hasn't been a bad issue yet. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Aug 4, 2015

    Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has some starts and stops throughout this issue, but the scares pack a helluva punch.  It's tough to imagine going through even a fraction of the stuff that Sabrina and Harvey are dealing with here as teenagers.  They're forced to grow up very quickly, learning the truth about the world around them and how it's far from a bright and shiny experience.  It's dark and frightening and no amount of praying or daydreaming can change that.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 29, 2015

    If you haven't checked out this series or perhaps you've given up on it due to its bi-monthly nature, then I would encourage you to stick around. I can't think of one other horror title out there that can compare or beat this series so it's worth the extra effort to follow it. Who would have thought that Sabrina would be the best horror series on the market? But it is. Read Full Review

    I never thought I'd be recommending an Archie comic to fans of "Wytches," but "Sabrina" is the next creepy title to put on your list. This is shaping up to be one heck of a horror comic. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - JAdam Oct 6, 2015

    Everything being said, this comic can be slightly overwhelming. However, considering the average nature of some comics, the fact that a comic can arouse too much emotion is quite a feat, if you ask me. I was actually blindsided by the events that took place in this issue. And although the 70s Sabrina comic at the end is a buzzkill, you can always just skip it. Overall, a great comic.

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jul 28, 2015

    'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' #4 explores the point of no return for Sabrina with heavy sadness and realistic grief. It sets up the next issue perfectly with a single panel at the end. Yet, it's enough to dread what happens next. 'Sabrina' just keeps getting better and better. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Adam Frey Jul 29, 2015

    Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #1 is due for a reprint for this year's Halloween ComicFest. If readers want to wait until then to get a free reprint of the first issue, that might make for a better venture into the series to see if it's worth it. This issue is acceptable, but seasoned horror fans shouldn't expect to be chilled in any way they haven't been before. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jul 29, 2015

    Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #4 still leaves a lot to be desired. The story is weak and dragged out, the characterization has been lacking for most of the cast, the horror is underwhelming, and the quality of the comic seems to be going up and down a lot of the time. I still can't recommend this comic at this point. There are just better horror series out there. Read Full Review
