Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "No longer a do-gooder who learns from her magical mishaps, Aguirre-Sacasa's Sabrina lives a gruesome existence. The week of Sabrina's sixteenth birthday the day she must choose whether to become mortal or to serve the devil Madam Satan extracts revenge against Sabrina's father by targeting the teenage witch, especially through her sexually frustrated boyfriend, Harvey. Hack indulges this grim rendition with sepia-toned illustrations that emphasize the sickly yellows and gory reds a color scheme that resembles a bloody fingerprint. Though his line work is realistic, the inked shadows are also wild and lively. The witches here, sallow and nude in their pure form, eat corpses, steal the flesh off beautiful faces, seduce, and murder. And it's not just the bad guys who are openly satanic. Sabrina's loving aunties are the ones emphatically salting human meat for dinner. Madam Satan's face is particularly disturbing skull eyes, a missing nose, and skeletal cheeks offset by ruby lips. This is not your mother's Sabrina, but like Afterlife with Archie (2014), it's a welcome though unsettling deviance from the clean-cut Archiverse.--Hyzy, Biz Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Set in the 1960s, this Archie spin-off draws heavily on the tropes of pulpy teen horror comics. Warlock Edward Spellman marries a mortal wife instead of a witch, gaining a powerful enemy. His daughter, Sabrina, is taken from him and raised by two aunts-who happen to be witches. Years later, teen Sabrina is faced with all of the usual preoccupations: a football-star boyfriend, auditions for the school musical, swirling hormones, and a bloody Satanic ritual that will mark her coming-of-age at 16. Unlike most young witches, Sabrina has a choice: to live as a normal human or to dedicate her soul to the devil and gain access to unlimited power. Both choices come with a terrible price. Hack's brushy line work captures Sabrina's youthful naïveté and decay and murder in dark forests. Aguirre-Sacasa's (Afterlife with Archie) well-realized characters and humor bring depth to what could have been a rather dreary tale of revenge and gore. (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
