Actually seems surprisingly intriguing considering the source material.

Totally was thinking this is Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Never even heard of Chilling Adventures. Is this supposed to be pre, intra, or post Teenage Witch era? Or whole different arc?

I mean, yeah, it is Sabrina the teenage witch. but yes, it was a horror reboot back in 2014.
Its a horror retelling of Sabrina.

They are all alt realities more or less.
Afterlife with Archie was the first in 2013. Zombie apocalypse in the Archie universe.
Afterlife with Archie - Wikipedia

Sabrina is the bride of Cthulu in that. the popularity of that issue, lead to Chilling adventures of Sabrina comic. (the story is unrelated, afterlife and chilling adventures do not take place in the same canon.)

Vampironica is also good. It just started in march 2018. It also has its own canon.

I will say that in the era of DC and Marvel being flaming dumpster fires of reboot-happy insanity the Archie comics people have their shit together. They go all-in on their weird offshoots without crippling the vanilla line.

What he^ said.

I read a lot of Archie / Sabrina classic comics when I was a teenager 20 years ago, had no idea these rebooted dark versions existed. Interesting.

This is out.

Starting it now. /co/ hated it. did not have any nice things to say. "ep5 and past it just gets worse"


My first thoughts, VERY early into ep1. Main antagonist shows up randomly from woods. kills woman, casts a spell to shapeshift into a her.. instead of: be summoned from the dead by amateur witchs as a joke. murdering said teens, skinning them, wearing their skin to take on their form.
not a good sign.

Familiar are goblins, not people curses into animals for some reason.

"dark lord" instead of satan.
The whole theme so far is Evil Harry potter. shes a half breed, who at 16 is going to be send to Evil hogworts ruled by Voldemort.
This is a massively different direction, then comic Chilling adventures. Honestly the idea is great. and if the show IS that, I would probably be ok with it. even if its not anything like the comic. I have doubts on that being the case though.

Comic Chilling aventures is straight up, witches are satanists. right out the VVitch. 100% those kind of witches. the Black book. fucking goats, eating babies, dancing naked in the woods, flying around.

ok. im still on ep1. But I think I understand what is going on here.

They took the window dressing of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Satanism, etc.
But, then blending it directly with the Classic Sabrina the Teenage witch from Archie comics. So instead of the Dark horror comic, its the more classic silly hijinks of an Archie comic.

Meh it's a far cry from the happy go lucky Sabrina in normal Archie comics. I'm on episode 3 and a little surprised by some of the dark stuff intermixed with a sort of Harry Potter vibe. Don't go in expecting a black mass.

I'm really enjoying it overall.

I really like the sets. That high school's Halloween game is lit. That whole town too.

But yeah, pretty pervasive SJW crap everywhere. Nonbinary girl harassed by jocks. Black girl couldn't start her Black Panther Daughter's school club. Cousing is somehow black and a fag despite all her witch family being white... They start a club to defend oppressed from football jocks.

That's just the first episode.
