Regular readers of this site know that I’ve been asking for collections of the new manga-style Sabrina the Teenage Witch for a while now, and Archie’s just announced that they will be doing one. Yay!
The Magic Revisited is due October 18, collecting the first four issues of the manga revamp for $7.49 US. That price point puts it between DC’s youth-oriented superhero digests (which collect five issues for $6.99) and Viz’s girl-targeted shôjo manga (almost twice the page count for $8.99, but in black and white, not color).
That title makes it sound historical, which would fit in with the majority of Archie’s collections. I wish they’d picked something more “zappy”, not something that makes me think “Sabrina: The Rerun”. Still, it’s a start. The real tests will be to see whether it’s made available in bookstores (I can’t imagine why not) and whether it does well enough to continue the series. I hope it does; I’d love to see a new audience introduced to the fun of the teen witch’s manga adventures.
