After the success of Archie among the living dead (always written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, chief creative officer of Archie Comics and writer of comics, tv series and movie), in 2014, in the United States began a second reinterpretation horror of another famous character of Archie: Sabrina Spellman, in Italy known almost exclusively for the tv series with Melissa Joan Hart, and for the cartoon.

Sabrina, the witch who lives in the world of men, why is magic only for half (the father is a wizard, mother a human), has a long history in the world of comics: in fact, appears for the first time in a comic book of the Archie Comics back in 1962, the same time that Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Robert Hack, acclimatize The Terrifying Adventures of Sabrina.

The base is the same for all of us, good or bad, we know: Sabrina is a teenager who lives with two aunts, Hilda and Zelda, she has a crush on Harvey Kinkle, and is recommended by the cat Salem.

The context, however, is reinterpreted in a clever way in key esoteric, so much so that the writer describes the comic as a “story of training in the dark“: the witches of The Terrifying Adventures of Sabrina, in fact, are explicitly dedicated to the Devil, gather in the Sabbath, and do satanic rites. Hilda and Zelda are even cannibals, and feed on corpses.

The relationships between the classic characters, however, do not change: Hilda and Zelda's love to her granddaughter Sabrina, whom she is in love with Harvey.

Also the relationship with Salem, the warlock turned into a cat after trying to summon the Apocalypse, is the same. Definitely, however, change the type of villain and the past of the young witch, whose mother is now in a psychiatric clinic, after having married not one sorcerer, but the High Priest of the Church of the Night: Edward Theodore Spellman.

It is the ex girlfriend of Edward to be the villain of this story arc: Madam Satan, which, after being returned from the Underworld, decides to take revenge on the daughter with a diabolical plan.

To kidnap the reader, however, is not only the story itself but also on the adaptation and the type of narration (for which Aguirre-Sacasa was inspired by the Neil Gaiman's Sandman), makes The Terrifying Adventures of Sabrina for a good comic, even for those unfamiliar with the original characters.
