This Week’s Finest: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #8

by Robert Aguirre-Sacasa & Robert Hack

Do you remember the ABC show Sabrina The Teenage Witch starring Melissa Joan Hart? If you are a late 80’s child like myself, it must have played some role in your after school routine when you were 12. It had many of the same beats that would soon make the Harry Potter books a huge success. Sabrina’s aunt Hilda was played by the hilarious Caroline Rhea, and her aunt Zelda was played by the charming Beth Broderick. My school night wouldn’t be the same without a little Sabrina Spellman in it. Well, this comic book is not that show. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack have taken the fun supernatural side of Archie Comics, and stripped it down to the terrifying witchcraft elements that linger just below the surface. It is like the difference between Teen Wolf and Silver Bullet. One uses a supernatural mythology to add a fun spin on a rather mundane story; the other focuses on the truly terrifying details of the unnatural world. This is the beauty of the diverse range of the horror genre. There can exist an after school special staring a teenage witch, and there can exist a terrifying comic based on the same character. One is a guilty pleasure for a 12 year old, while the other keeps a 31 year old man up at night.

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Tyler’s Recommendation…
Nick Fury #4
“So far this series has been very cool. I really enjoy a well crafted single issue story, and this series has been nothing but that. Following Fury on a mission per issue is a great format, and the creative team does a fantastic job. ACO’s art pays homage to Steranko, but has it’s own flair and identity. The best part is you can pick this 4th issue up and not be lost at all.”

Riverdale Pilot Review

The CW adds another comic show to its lineup, starring broody teens in an overcast setting doing sexy things, because they’re teenagers. Based on the classic Archie Comics characters, Riverdale represents an audacious attempt at making Archie Andrews and his gang “hip”. But does it work?  Continue reading Riverdale Pilot Review

“Another book plagued by delays, but it is SO good! Artist Robert Hack has a style all his own, and it provides such a wicked atmosphere for the sixties period piece. After last issue’s shocking events, it’s anyone’s guess what will happen to our beloved white-haired teen witch.”

FantasticFouroriginstory

The Fantastic Four was the book that kicked off the Marvel Universe as we know it, and its a title that has proven challenging to reinvent since the 60s. It still has an impressive history, rife with runs for those looking to dive in in preparation for the upcoming reboot from Fox. Instead of a Top Ten, this is more of a discussion of my favorite stories/runs that people new to Marvel’s First Family might enjoy…

Convergence: Shazam #2
 
It’s the Shazam comic that we all wished actually existed in the real world as an ongoing but sadly, will only be for two issues in it’s present state. Still, you gotta take what you can get
