In the world of JUGHEAD THE HUNGER, there are no vampires, having been wiped out in their great war with the werewolves.

Whatever it is, it can’t be good for poor ol’ Jug and Vampironica, you can count on that much…

Review: Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1

Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1

Sabrina The Teenage Witch is back and rebooted with writer Kelly Thompson at the helm. This is exciting for long time fans of the classic character Sabrina as the only recent resurgence of her character has been more or less horror adjacent (i.e. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina). With art by both Veronica Fish and Andy Fish, Sabrina is brought back with a new look but maintaining her signature short, white hair from when she was first introduced in 1962.

This particular reset starts by following Sabrina on her first day at Greendale High. We see a cast a familiar character but are introduced to plenty of new faces. In classic Sabrina fashion, she uses her powers for good, and intends to help those around her without their knowledge.

The writing felt unsure of itself to start, but this could simply be the symptom of navigating how to open a new series, not necessarily a reflection of the writer and what’s to come. The issue also lacked a general humor about it that one comes to expect from a classic Archie character although there were attempts.

The issue is wrapped with a cliffhanger that will surely be interesting to learn more about in the upcoming issues. There is a sense of a potential love triangle looming among the pages as well. While this comeback didn’t feel necessarily compelling, I have hope future issues will be more commanding and charming.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Mera: Tidebreaker

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Bad Luck Chuck #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – The concept of a person who rents out their bad luck for profit sounds too funny, and original, to not check out.

Dial H for Hero #1 (DC Comics/Wonder Comics) – The classic character returns with Sam Humphries and Joe Quinones in charge. It’s always been a fun concept, gaining power from dialing a phone, and hopefully this six-issue series stands out.

Glow #1 (IDW Publishing) – The Netflix show comes to comics and we’re so excited to get some more wrestling comics!

The Handmaids Tale (Doubleday Books) – The classic novel is adapted as a graphic novel.

Mera: Tidebreaker (DC Comics/DC Ink) – DC’s dive into young adult entertainment with this first graphic novel in their new DC Ink line. Focused on Mera, the graphic novel has her taking control of her destiny.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1 (Archie Comics) – The classic character gets the spotlight in a brand new series! With the Netflix series and her inclusion in the main Archie series, we’re intrigued by what this one is.

The Scar (Fantagraphics) – In the summer of 2017, cartoonist Andrea Ferraris and director Renato Chiocca traveled to southern Arizona to witness the tense situation along the US-Mexico border firsthand.

Super Sons: The Polarshield Project (DC Comics/DC Zoom) – DC Zoom focuses on middle grade readers and this graphic novel debuts the line. We always love the Super Sons and get excited in anything they’re in.

Synergy: Hasbro Creators Showcase (IDW Publishing) – Celebrating the female creators who have made Hasbro’s properties great. Anthologies rule!

Transformers #2 (IDW Publishing) – Transformers are back in a new series exploring the early years of Cybertron and we’re so excited about it all.
