Archie Comics Releases Details for Sabrina the Teenage Witch Horror Series

Posted by at 10:47 am on June 4, 2014

Archie Comics chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa first mentioned plans for a new “Sabrina” ongoing title — in the same vein as the publisher’s non-all-ages hit horror series “Afterlife with Archie” — back in March. Now, Archie has announced that joining Aguirre-Sacasa, who also writes “Afterlife, on the October-debuting series will be artist Robert Hack, who has previously illustrated “Afterlife” and “Life with Archie” covers.

Archie also released three covers from the first issue, each illustrated by Hack.

Introduced in 1962, Sabrina the Teenage Witch is one of Archie’s longest-running and most recognizable characters outside of the Riverdale gang. The character has starred in both animated and live-action TV series, including current cartoon “Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch,” which airs on The Hub and received an Emmy nomination for series star Ashley Tisdale in the “Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program” category. The most recent “Sabrina” comic book series, more traditional all-ages Archie fare, ended in 2009.

“‘Sabrina’ takes characters we know and love and pushes them in a new, ghastly direction,” Hack said recently. “The horror in ‘Sabrina’ carries so much weight because we’ve cared for these characters for, quite literally, generations. And Roberto’s scripts alternate between tugging at heartstrings and ripping them out.”
