Sabrina's Chilling Adventures!

The imaginary land of Riverdale has proven to be a most plastic universe over the decades, filled to the brim with horny teens, school hijinks, and sunshiny gags, it has also been a place where superheroes fly, super-spies hunt, and witches brew. The latter is best represented by Sabrina the Teen-Age Witch who has proven to be one of the most durable additions to the Archiverse, having held down several comic series and even a few TV shows.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a trade I've picked up and put down several times, attracted by the general notion of a somewhat more serious tale in this flexible world and inspired by the fun and fright to be found in Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's other After-Life with Archie stories. Robert Hack isn't an artist I know much about, but his style feels right for this story which reads like nothing so much as one of those vintage gothic romances, filled with suspense and shadows and creeps. I'm glad I didn't follow this series in real time since it's taken about two years for all the installments to arrive. Finding the story all in one place is the way to go with these After-Life epics it seems.

Here are the main covers for this series.

I'll be taking a closer look at one of the alternate covers in this series tomorrow.
