This was pretty good. A darker Sabrina with two aunts who do not like the humans. These witches are more of the Grimm fairy tale version and more likely to cook and eat you than merely allow you to exist. They don't mingle. No-no. So, Sabrina's dad gets with a human and has her. She's a half breed. She ends up having to move and is in high school when the story ends.

It's a decent setup. Salem the talking cat is, of course, awesome.

Oh, it's free if you are an Amazon Prime member. Free is always g

This is another case of Netflix made me read it.


As I enjoyed Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, I thought I'd give the comics a try.


The first issue focuses on Sabrina's early years, and it shows us how she ended up being raised by her aunts instead of her parents. There are noticeable differences from the TV series, and I'm curious to know how the original, comics version turns out.

This was a rather short, but intriguing retelling of Sabrina the teenage witch. This is nothing like the tv programme that we all used to watch in the nineties. This is extremely dark, and I think it'll take me a little while to get used to. I found the story sequence flowed easily, and I thought the art was pretty good too. I thought this did a rather good job of telling us Sabrina's backstory of what happened before the teenage years. There was some bonus material at the back which wasn't to m ...more

4 STARS!!!

I'd never read the original Sabrina comics but I was a huge fan of the TV series in the 90s and when I read there was a horror-ish graphic novel remix of Sabrina I jumped at it and downloaded #1. I loved how dark and creepy it was and I think this would actually make a really awesome TV rendition of Sabrina, all dark and scary but still full of teen drama and angst. I look forward to reading on in this series. :)

Buen inicio para esta serie de comics sobre una Sabrina adolescente muy satanizada y en un contexto mucho más oscuro del que conocíamos de la original 🔮✨

A really interesting and very dark twist on the show I loved so much as a child. I'm a big fan of this so far, even though it's a bit dark. But the story still feels familiar. I'll definitely be continuing on with this series, because I'm already super interested (which is a huge relief for someone who starts a million comic series, and never seems to finish them).

After recently watching the new Netflix series of Sabrina I decided to try out this graphic novel. I will definitely be continuing with the rest of the series.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch is Volume 1 of the latest Sabrina series. It is my understanding that this is the inspiration for the upcoming TV series of the same name due to air sometime this year. When I learned this, of course I needed to check out the graphic novel. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is apparently also the creator of Riverdale, the dark Archie comics which have inspired the already running TV series titled Riverdale.

This is not the cute Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Para ser introductorio no estuvo nada mal y me enganchó.

Reconozco que los empecé porque quiero ver la Serie de Netflix

**I'm so excited to find out that this is going to be a Netflix series starting October 26th!**

I love Sabrina everything, so I had to read this creepy series starter. I'll be finishing the series, but will need some episodes of the TV show in between for a palate cleanser.

Me gustó! Esta interesante... Pero este primer comic es pura introducción
I decided to read this since the Netflix adaptation is already on air and I've watched the first episode only! Hahahha. Reading this though makes more sense and can give major spoilers even just by the first issue. This story sequence was smooth and I quite enjoyed the art style for this issue. Also, the cover is absolutely gorgeous and she's actually close to the actress playing her!

This was okay I guess. The story was fine but I am not a fan of the art style. Gave this a go as wanted to read before the Netflix show comes out. Will watch the show but won’t carry on with the graphic novel.

Me ha gustado mucho, entre el dibujo (que me parece muy bueno), la trama, y los personajes, te adentra en un mundo tétrico donde lo que en el mundo real es considerado malo, aquí es cosa normal.

El único pero que le pongo sería la falta de profundidad en la personalidad de Sabrina.

Pequeña nota: Salem me ha encantado!

"You've never been to high school, but I have... it's as dangerous and frightful a place as exists. Hell on earth for mortals and witches alike... where there are dragons behind every smile"

So this is basically a reboot of Sabrina the teenage witch. The story is good but I really didnt dig the art. Not a bad way to start a series, let's see whats ahead of this.

This was a very quick read. Only bought the first issue when I was back home for Thanksgiving. Ordering the next few issues immediately. I love how dark and gritty it is. The art is decent, but the facial expressions always seem the same and the look of a character can change drastically from one page to another that I sometimes didn't recognize them. Loved how it was Betty and Veronica who accidentally summoned that creature. Overall, I like this kind of comic over a super hero comic. Would def ...more

A dark, gritty and demonic take on Sabrina the teenage witch. I was expecting light and fluffy and what you get is horrorly gruesomeness.
The black and white makes the art stand out more and somehow makes it more startlingly creepier.
Can't wait for the grapic novel to be released.

This isn't the Sabrina the Teenage Witch you grew up with, this comic is dark!
I usually wait to watch shows/films until I've read the book/comic/manga but sometimes I do it the other way around and this is the case with Chilling Adventures.. I have watched the show and binged it like crazy because I enjoyed it so much! The comic is even more dark and twisted, just the way I like it! 🖤😂 .
It was a short read and I cannot wait to read the rest! Also the artwork.. AMAZING!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 rounded up to

Die Serie aus den 90er hat einen ganz besonderen Platz in meinem Herzen. Nach dem ich die Netflix Serie geseh hatte, war ich ganz schön abgeschreckt und wollte mir das Original anschauen.

Das erste Kapitel ist sehr düster und makaber. Hat einen interessanten Stil und anschließend findet man witzige Hintergrundinfos zu der Geschichte.

Insgesamt ein interessantes Kapitel, wobei es überhaupt nichts für mich ist.

Sabrina the teenage witch es una de mis series favoritas, crecí con ella y amaba a Salem, así que ahora que saldrá la nueva serie e iniciando el mes de octubre decidí leer el comic de las Escalofriantes aventuras de Sabrina, con este primer volumen el cual es introducción principalmente, aunque deja claro que de la serie de los 90s, esta historia es más oscura.

A good start, I think these could be really good!
Mit der Fernsehserie im Hinterkopf in diesem Comic zu starten, ist definitiv nicht die beste Idee. Ich bin aktuell auch unschlüssig, wie mir diese düstere Abwandlung von Sabrina gefällt und lese erstmal weiter, um mir eine Meinung zu bilden ... Okay, selbst nach Band 5 finde ich die Serie noch immer nett, aber nicht umhauend. Da weitere Bände nicht in Kindle Prime enthalten sind, ist das somit das Ende meiner Lektüre. Bis auf einen fiesen Cliffhanger sowie ein cooles Zitat konnten mich die Chill ...more

Definitely not for kids! If you enjoy a warped, darker tale, once in a while, try this one out. I liked having all of the cultural references with it set in a different time period, somehow it lightens the mood of a family of cannibalistic witches. (My review for #2 is pretty much the same, but you should definitely read this line firsrt, should you decide to read the series).
