Sabrina: Something Wicked: 05/20/21

Sabrina: Something Wicked

Sabrina: Something Wicked by Kelly Thompson and Veronica Fish (illustrator) collects issues six through ten. Or if you're like me and wait until they're gathered into a book, it's the sequel to Sabrina the Teenage Witch (2020).

Sabrina is still trying to solve the problem of the wendigo curse. Meanwhile there is also a serial killer. Some want to blame the cursed siblings but Sabrina and her aunts know they aren't responsible. They don't, however, know that she's pulling late nights to find a counter spell for the curse.

Much of Sabrina's problems this volume stem from her fatigue and her lack of communication. All she needs to do is talk to her aunts. Likewise she should just tell her high school friends what she's facing.

Finally there is her naiveté. She is too trusting of stand-ins for family when she's not in the mood to talk to her aunts. This is a recurring theme and certainly is a strong one in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack (2016) and its Netflix adaptation.

In my review of volume 1, I mentioned the sad lack of Ambrose. He's back but only in a last page hook. I hope he's the evidence that there is more to come. Hopefully there will be issues eleven through fifteen, and a volume three.

Five stars
