ARCHIE'S SABRINA: SOMETHING WICKED

With the final issue of Sabrina The Teenage Witch hitting stores on Sept. 11, writer Kelly Thompson and artists Veronica Fish and Andy Fish have reunited for the next chapter in their reboot of the classic Archie Comics character.

Sabrina: Something Wicked, a five-issue mini-series launching in spring 2020, follows the magical monster mayhem of the first series, with Sabrina's powers on the rise and the forces of darkness not quite as at-bay as she and her fellow witches would like.

"I knew we had a tough task ahead because the Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina comic is -- rightly so -- beloved," Thompson said. "And we were coming in and doing something very different -- but people really seemed to embrace it and fall in love. It's been fantastic. The second volume spins directly out of the first, and a lot of the things that we began setting up there will get explored in this second volume. The tone and approach will be similar but it will be a little darker and more dangerous, the stakes even higher."

Here's how Archie describes the story:

"The sequel will delve further into the characters -- both new and old -- that were introduced in the first mini-series, including the teens of Greendale High and Sabrina's familiar Salem, the former warlock / current snarky black cat. And with a deeper exploration of Greendale's witch history comes many more witches, good and wicked!"

"We can't wait to read what Kelly has coming," Veronica Fish said. "She always writes so much fun visual material as well as leaving space for us to add in our own little flourishes."

Andy Fish added, "I love what Kelly did with the first one and I'm looking forward to where she takes us. Kelly has a terrific reputation for making these characters feel real and she knocked it out of the park. Bring on more!"
