    Sabrina, the Teenage Witch is something I’ll never forget. It’s something I grew up with, and am still growing up with. To see it being transformed from comic to live action TV show to animated TV show to film and spin off comic books is something so profound that I can only explain it as something I am truly thankful for and honored to see happen. I didn’t write these comics and scripts; I wasn’t a part of the production of these stories, but with a character like Sabrina, I feel like I am a part of it. She isn’t just a character, she’s someone I know—a friend. To anyone who feels the same way, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will not only give you the frightening Sabrina story you’re looking for, but bring a smile to your face. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jul 12, 2016

    Horror is huge in comics today, but because it's a static medium, it's easy for the industry to rely on visual tricks like gore and graphic violence to get the scares across. But Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #6, despite barely having its title character in the book, takes the harder road, and succeeds because of it. With its ominous storytelling working hand in hand with its eerie visuals, this book takes no shortcuts to spook you, and as a result, might be the most effective horror comic in ages.

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Jul 13, 2016

    "S" is for Sabrina, the teenage witch, and "E" is for excellent, the quality of this comic. The level of intelligence and craft that goes into each issue of this comic is amazing, and it functions on so many levels without becoming too self-aware or aggrandizing. Readers can enjoy this simply as a well-crafted story, or they can dive in deeper and enjoy the skein of literary and historical allusions. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 22, 2016

    Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has reached new levels of horror with this tangential issue.  Just as Afterlife with Archie #6 sets the book apart as more than just a zombie comic, this one differentiates Sabrina as more than just a witch comic.  It deals with Satan in an intimate way that shows just how powerful and evil a creature he can be.  It sheds some light on three minor characters that you wouldn't have thought twice about previously, but now provide additional insight into the future of the comic.
