Sabrina who??

Ok, like I’m sure at least some of you did, I grew up watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I adored Melissa Joan Hart (still do), had watched her on Nickelodeon as Clarissa, so when she had a new show I had to watch it! I loved her as Sabrina, as well! If you never saw Sabrina, here’s the breakdown of the original story (based off of the original Archie comic): Sabrina Spellman is a teenage girl who lives with her two wacky aunts. On her 16th birthday, she finds out that she is a witch & must learn to use and control her powers. Of course, she doesn’t believe it at first, but once she does she screws up a lot trying to figure out & use her powers appropriately (because what teenage girl wouldn’t overuse powers, if she had them?!). Her aunts are funny and loving, and they have a talking cat named Salem, who is actually a warlock that was turned in to a cat for trying to take over the world (because, cats). She also has a crush who turns in to a boyfriend named Harvey (who I may also have had a crush on). The series basically just follows her life and is quirky and family friendly.

Not anymore…

All of that has changed, and I need to talk about this!! So, a friend told me about the graphic novel The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and I had to get the first volume. It is awesome and a bananas departure from the original! It’s so much darker & leans more to the creepy/horror side of what the story could have been. I love it! There’s a totally different backstory to Sabrina and the Spellman family than what is hinted at or told on the show, and as someone who grew to love creepy/horror reads I really appreciate it. Now, Netflix had created an original show based off of the new graphic novels. It looks wonderful! (Hello next binge watch!) It premiered on 10/26, but I haven’t had a chance to watch yet. I’ll keep you posted!

Any other Sabrina lovers out there?! What are your thoughts on the graphic novels or the show, if you’ve had a chance to watch?

I know I never talk about graphic novels, but I do love them! Anyone else? Any recommendations for ones that I should pick up? Would you like for me to discuss them? Let me hear your thoughts!!

    • That is a bummer! I hope the show is good. The producers of Riverdale did it, so fingers crossed. Maybe they’ll make the first season available on dvd as they’ve done with Stranger Things, etc. the first volume is just called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Book 1, and it’s the cover that I have in the picture. You can get it on Amazon for about $12! Or, if you have prime, you can get the individual issues through prime reading for free. The first one is just #1 (same title) and has a creepy house on the front with Sabrina in a window. Let me know what you think, if you try it!

  2. As a lover of the original showm I was highly disappointed that they did away with the unrealistic animatronic cat 😛 But I’ve heard really good things about the new show. I had no idea there was a graphic novel too!

    • I agree! I think Salem was my spirit animal. 😂😂😂 Yes, the graphic novel is awesome! I highly recommend it. I still haven’t had time to sit down and watch the season yet. Being an adult is no fun sometimes! I’m really hoping to get to it this week. What did you think of the new show?
