Sabrina the Teenage Witch Returns in a New Series from Kelly Thompson and Veronica Fish

Archie Comics is relaunching one of its most iconic and beloved characters in a spellbinding new comic book series by the fan-favorite team of writer Kelly Thompson and artist Veronica Fish. Sabrina the Teenage Witch, a five-issue mini-series arrives in comics shops in March.

Sabrina has enchanted millions of viewers on the Netflix original series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, starring Kiernan Shipka and based on the Archie Horror graphic novel of the same name. The new comic series will forego the dark elements that inspired the show and highlight the character’s more lighthearted origins.

In the first issue, on sale March 27, Thompsonintroduces us to Sabrina and her supporting cast: her witch aunts Hilda and Zelda, her feline familiar Salem, and more. Sabrina has to learn to navigate both of her worlds while saving them from supernatural threats. Fish, with husband and inker Andy Fish, renders it in an appealingly bright and colorful style that expertly blends fantasy with the down-to-earth setting of Riverdale’s neighboring town, Greendale. Archie Comics hopes to continue the series beyond the initial five issues if fan response reaches the heights they expect.
