YA Pick of the Week: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Do you remember the original television series of Sabrina the Teenage Witch? The one from the early 2000s starring Melissa Joan Hart where Sabrina goes through hilarious hijinks and teenage drama while also being a witch?

...this is NOTHING like that. This comic series, which is set in the 1960s (evoking classic horror film Rosemary's Baby) is genuinely spooky and chilling, while the art also manages to really evoke the feel of the era.

If you're interested in the Riverdale tv series, this takes place in the Archie universe with some great crossovers with Betty and Veronica. If you're interested in other teen horror comics (Emily Carroll's Through the Woods and Vera Brosgol's Anya's Ghost come to mind) this also might be right up your alley. We'll be getting in a hard copy sometime this month (along with some of the Riverdale comics!) or you can read it for free online using Hoopla Digital! I personally loved it.

BONUS: filming just began for a Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Netflix original series!
