Sabrina has to face the Witches Council for an accusation of conspiring with a mortal against the Church of Night. It will take a series of unnatural tests to prove her innocence, but none of it will bring her beloved Harvey back. She'll have to take matters into her own hands to find Harvey's missing soul. Recruiting two other young witches (from a neighboring coven), Sabrina holds a séance, but as ever, Madame Satan is pulling the strings behind the scenes, and what Sabrina taps into is much more dangerous - and diabolical. And will send our beloved teen witch on an epic quest. For TEEN+ readers.

    This is not a series for the easily unnerved, but it's a modern horror comic that is at least as strong as anything else on the shelves, arguably even more so. Beautifully terrifying, CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA #5 is nothing short of creepy excellence. “By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.” And I will be waiting for it.

    Comicosity - Kelly Richards May 20, 2016

    Fans of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be glad of its long awaited return and the pace with which it picks up the story. Aguirre-Sacasa and Hack continue to create a book that plays horror against teenage angst in a way that feels unique and does not merely result in a slasher story. Well written and masterfully illustrated, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #5 was well worth the wait. Read Full Review

    There's not much else I can say except this: If you like mystery comics or scary books but don't read this series, start. If you do read it and don't have this issue, get it immediately. Collectively, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina remains a timeless instant classic, one for the annals of contemporary horror. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Leroy Douresseaux May 19, 2016

    It has been nearly a year since the publication of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #4, and, if I remember correctly, there was a long wait between the publication of the first two issues of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and the third and fourth issues. The previous four issues have been fantastic, so the length of time to grow Chilling Adventures of Sabrina installments were worth the wait. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #5 is so good that I can't be mad. It is certainly worth the wait. Yeah, I'd like to read it more often, but while reading issue #5, the long delay between it and the fourth issue was the last thing on my mind. Read Full Review

    Geek Sushi - Peter Rodriguez May 19, 2016

    This book creeps me out so much I started having a panic attack after reading the diabolical incantation. This is of course the fault of Aguirre-Sacasa, who along with his Afterlife work is scripting some of the best work we have seen in the horror comic genre. If we have to wait almost a year in between issues for any comic book, it better be as good as Chilling Adventures of Sabrina! Read Full Review

    ComicWow!TV - Bhavna Bakshi May 17, 2016

    Sabrina has gotten quite the fan base, what with Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and all. Fans of the half-witch, half-mortal teenager are going to love this series as Sabrina gets herself stuck in even more magic-filled scenarios. I expect nothing less than brilliance when it comes to this series, and the creative team never disappoints. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 26, 2016

    This is a welcome return for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and one that packs a serious punch.  It ratchets up the fear and starts to tie everything together in a way that has me clamoring for more.  I just hope I don't have to wait another ten months until the next issue. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Island Boy Manuel May 23, 2016

    For the uninitiated,The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, is a far cry from the original comics from the 60's"and an even further cry from the teen sitcom with the talking cat from your childhood. These stories are not for the faint of heart, but for those intrepid souls willing to peak into the darkest corners of the Archie Universe, writer Roberto Aquirre-Sacasa has a treat for you Read Full Review
