Sabrina Coming Back to Comics

Sabrina #1 cover

Afterlife With Archie has been a smashing success for the publisher, so they’re expanding their horror line with a Sabrina comic relaunch, coming in October according to USA Today. It’ll be written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also writes Afterlife, although this one is described as darker than that.

Artist Robert Hack says, “Sabrina takes characters we know and love and pushes them in a new, ghastly direction.” So, not necessarily a comic for me, then. I don’t look forward to stories that “alternate between tugging at heartstrings and ripping them out.” I am curious about one aspect, though; Sabrina will be “a period book with a retro vibe set in the 1960s that acts as a retelling of her origin” as a teenage witch.

    That cover screams “V C Andrews” to me, which is *definitely* not a vibe I associate with Sabrina — nor want to!

    Oooh, I hadn’t thought of that, but you’re right, it does!
