Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Vol 1 The Crucible

On the eve of her sixteenth birthday the young sorceress Sabrina Spellman finds herself at a crossroads having to choose between an unearthly destiny I feel icky after finishing thisThis was the darkest graphic novel I've ever read perfect for Halloween and perfect if you want plenty of nightmares I wouldn't say I enjoyed the experience of reading this as I felt supremely uncomfortable the entire time But this twisted Satanic take on Sabrina was definitely interesting to read Also the art style wasn't for me but I think it definitely enhanced the creepy atmosphere

    45 starsWow Talk about some real witchy womenIn the world of Archie Comics Sabrina the Teenage Witch is your magical girl next door Sweet pretty head over heels in love with her high school sweetheart Harvey Kinkle In the regular comics Sabrina is always trying to sneak around to do good with her magic despite her two aunts and cat Salem trying their best to get her to act a bit like a real witchIn this the characters are all there but instead of the usual sweet and silly tone of a regular Sabrina story you've got a dark retelling of her origin It's set in the 1960's which is cool because that was when she originally debuted as a character in Archie's world Plus the 60's setting coupled with the spooky art just gives a real Rosemary's Baby sort of vibe to the comicThe Madam Satan Iola Evangeline Porter character is entirely revamped and given a new backstory involving Sabrina's father As far as I'm aware she has never before appeared in a comic with Sabrina but I could be wrong At any rate she's out for revenge against the Spellman's and she's crazy as hell which is ironically where she's been for a uite whileSabrina doesn't live in Riverdale she lives in the nearby town of Greendale But since they are so close together a few of Riverdale's famous cheerleaders do make a rather important pit stop in her town I went into it thinking that it might be a cheesy cash grab or a stupid companion comic to the CW spin off of their Riverdale show But by the time I finished I had to admit that I was really impressed by everything about this I'm not saying it's perfect but it definitely exceeded my expectations and thoroughly entertained me The last issue left me on pins and needles and I can't wait to see where this is headed nextArchie Comics is doing a great job revamping their line up and uickly becoming one of my top picks when it comes to graphic novelsSo if you're in the market for a not so nice little comic about a teenage witch then Sabrina is your girlTo whom it may concern This is FREE with PRIME READING

    CWTW Cannibalism gore violence occultism Something wicked this way comes Aguirre Sacasa and Hack team up in conjuring the darkest elements of the occult and transmogrifying the once cutesy narrative of Sabrina The Teenage Witch into a gothic unnerving and supernaturally nefarious comic that revels in the macabre and the maleficent thereby creating a re imagined tale of horror now known as the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Vol 1 The Crucible with a Netflix TV series adaptationIn the neighbouring town of Riverdale Greendale 1960s Sabrina Spellman born of a mortal mother and a warlock father finds herself in a state of limbo when on the eve of her 16th birthday she is coerced to choose either the mortal or the Wiccan path A half witch half mortal offspring she has displayed irrepressible powers as witnessed by her Aunts Zelda and Hilda Undergoing the unholy communion means receiving the blessing of the Dark Lord otherwise she'll be a mortal forever with diminishing powers Being human has its own perks — well she gets to choose a life with her boyfriend Harvey Kinkle However things get complicated when two known witches from Riverdale unexpectedly free the devil's concubine the ueen of Hell For you who sleep in stone and clayHeed this call rise up and obeyPass on through the mortal doorAssemble flesh and walk once With a sinister agenda of her own it's only a matter of time before Greendale plunges into absolute darkness and her infernal embrace Double double toil and trouble;Fire burn and cauldron bubble This amazing volume consists of six issues from Something Wicked to Salem I didn't give this one a 5 star rating for the fact that it lacked a powerful and compelling copy but the plot storytelling and illustrations were great Fans of gratuitous gore witchcraft and dark twisted tales will find this atmospheric comic appealing and satisfying that is if you want to satiate your inner sadomasochistic tendencies Be warned though this is not for the faint of heart

    Loved checking this out at the same time as I watch the show I like Sabrina as a character in the show but the graphic novel is eually good dark fun

    I need to be honest with you First of all I wanted to read this comic because I heard that the Netflix series is an adaptation of these comics Second I read them in one day All of them I know what is wrong with me And third I watched every trailer for the upcoming series literally a million times I can’t wait to see the series because the story is so so dark strange awkward but also pretty cool I like that they’ll change some things in the show because let’s be honest sometimes the comic is too much Like really really too much But still I’m absolutely in love with a dark version of Sabrina the teenage witch with Salem our wonderful black cat and two funny and lovable aunts Can’t wait

    I decided to read this after hearing it was going to be made into a TV show on the CWI loved the whole vibe of this I liked that it was set in the 1960’s and the artwork matched perfectly It had the right blend of vintage throwback and horror As for the story I liked the darker take on Sabrina The first couple of issues had a lot of backstory but once it got to main plot I was hooked Overall this was a fantastic spooky read I cannot wait for the show

    The trailers for this new darker take on Netflix instantly peaked my interest Along with the comics being included on KindleUnlimited I just had to read themI mainly knew Sabrina through the 90’s kid friendly show but this is so much darker and twistedI loved the 60’s setting and the artwork evoking that era I really like how graphically gory it isI think most kids probably wouldn’t be aware of the original show so wouldn’t pick this up by accidentI liked how it has a really feel of that era whilst also being fresh and newI’d certainly would like to read like this

    This was SO DARK I was completely not prepared for how insanely macabre and messed up this book is but I really and truly loved it I loved how it kept shocking me in new ways I loved this entirely different spin on the Sabrina I know and love I loved how it involved Betty and Veronica The commercials I've seen make the Netflix series look uite different than this specific story but it's made me so excited for that to begin anyhow
