Teenage Witch and Wytches

   Came in from work, watched an episode of Sleepy Hollow and read two new Horror comic books, CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA and WYTCHES. Both comics were excellent and now I have a nice Halloween buzz going. Wytches was probably the scarrier of the two but not by much. This new, realistic version of Sabrina has some good horror chops. It seems to be following a different continuity than the recent Sabrina issue of Afterlife With Archie, but perhaps it's just earlier in the history of the character. There are some nice in-jokes for long time readers of Archie Comics and the back up feature is a reprint of the original first ever Sabrina story from Archie's Madhouse #22 with gorgeous art by the late Dan Decarlo. The series is off to a great start.

Hey Charles, I just picked up that issue of CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA as well as AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #6 this weekend... liked them both, preferred the Cthulhuesque Afterlife comic. Just a note regarding the continuity you mentioned... in the Afterlife issue they had a preview of the Sabrina issue and mentioned in the text intro that it doesn't directly tie into the Afterlife comic but is more a companion period piece set back in the 60's...

Ah. Thanks, Kyle. I didn't think the two continuities were supposed to mesh but I wasn't sure.
