    I've been meaning to read 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' for such a long time, since it promised a darker take on a character I remember so fondly from my childhood. Admittedly I was more familiar with the TV versions of her, both an animated one, that I loved, and of course the Melissa Joan Hart version, which was one of my favourite shows (I watched it all again a few years ago and it holds up pretty well, except for the last season) but I did know she was Archie Comics character, and I had I've been meaning to read 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' for such a long time, since it promised a darker take on a character I remember so fondly from my childhood. Admittedly I was more familiar with the TV versions of her, both an animated one, that I loved, and of course the Melissa Joan Hart version, which was one of my favourite shows (I watched it all again a few years ago and it holds up pretty well, except for the last season) but I did know she was Archie Comics character, and I had always felt curious about her origins. When I saw they were releasing this Occult Edition, I instantly bought it. It contains the entire story so far, and a few extras-- Sabrina's first appearance from 1962 in 'Archie's Madhouse #22', A Madam Satan story from 'Pep Comics #17' (from 1941 I think) and some stills from the TV series. I enjoyed the whole thing. It's nice to have a Sabrina who is actually a proper witch, if that makes sense. And where the use of magic has some weight to it, and a lot of darkness too. It's mostly set in the sixties, with a few flashbacks here and there -- and I really enjoyed the various outfits. I didn't expect to be wanting to raid Sabrina Spellman's wardrobe! And sometimes Aunt Zelda's. Story wise, it's dark and twisted, creepy and violent. There's lots of murder, some sacrifices, and various unexpectedly gory surprises. Robert Hack's art is wonderful, the kind of thing I naturally gravitate towards. The 'Sabrina on Netflix' section says, 'To help bring his story to life, Aguirre-Sacasa enlisted the aid of artist Robert Hack, who merges jaw-dropping illustrations of monsters and mortals with an autumnal color scheme that is both beautiful and unsettling.' I just had to use that, as it describes it so well. My only gripe (and even this reflects my enjoyment) is that it ends on quite the cliffhanger, and I have no idea how long the wait will be to find out what happens! In the meantime, I think I'll finally watch the show, which looks pretty good! And I definitely want to read 'Afterlife with Archie' now too. ğŸŽƒ Oh I almost forgot: Salem-- Salem is wonderful! 🐱 UPDATED: I have now watched the show and I loved it! 👹

    I am way ahead on my Goodreads reading goal for the year, I have tons of reviews to write, lots of ideas for blogmas, and everything is going swell! For now, my plan for blogmas is to try to get some of these reviews out but I definitely want to do some fun seasonal posts because I love this time of year. From about October (maybe September) on is my jam! You will find my house decorated, me in cozy sweaters and cute boots, and loving this time of year.

From about October (maybe September) on is my jam! You will find my house decorated, me in cozy sweaters and cute boots, and loving this time of year. One of my recent reads was the Sabrina graphic novels! I was able to get the Occult Edition which had some extras about also contained multiple editions. I am a huge Sabrina lover, ever since I was a kid when the show with Melissa Joan Hart aired and I never missed an episode to now when I watch the Netflix show and have different feelings from the original but find I still have a love for it. I have wanted to pick up the graphic novels but I just had not yet, I knew my Hoopla had copies so this year when the fall season hit I decided I was finally going to do it! I checked out the Occult Edition on Hoopla and read it all in a little over a day (I would have just read it all in a day but things got busy). SPOILERS AHEAD In this collected edition we follow Sabrina through everything from her sixteenth birthday and what is supposed to be her meeting with the dark lord to her first love, Harvey Kinkle, to Salem's story of how he became her familiar. I do not want to go too far in-depth into any one thing because the majority of it is all connected however, I will touch on a few things! I really enjoyed getting to see Salem's story as well as the story of the snakes (Sabrina's cousin's familiar) I thought this particular section was super interesting and I always love hearing Salem's backstory in every iteration of Sabrina's story. I also found the twist with Harvey really interesting, I know the show did it differently and I know things on there are progressing much differently but I am super interested to see how they progress in the graphic novel now as well. I really was not expecting them to do that! I do not know if they are writing more graphic novels but I truly hope they do. One other aspect I found interesting in the graphic novel and I find interesting in every version of Sabrina was her family. I am always intrigued by how they illustrate her father, mother, and aunts but I think the graphic novel had a unique way of bringing each of these characters to life (although I will never forget the Hilda and Zelda from the Melissa Joan Hart show). Overall I really enjoyed this graphic novel and I hope to see more editions, I can not wait to see more of the show and I love going back and watching the older show as well. I am giving this four stars on Goodreads.

    I didn't realize that this was a compilation of the two volumes of the comic series by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. I got it on Hoopla and it was not clear what was included in this "Occult Edition" so it's my own fault for inflicting this series on myself again. I have previously read Volume 1 and I didn't like anything about it; story, art style, colouring, it's all just terrible. This was just more of the same.

    Great graphic novel Great graphic novel, dark and give to much to think, great development of the characters.... but if you look for the Netflix series it isn’t that’s it is better
