I've always been a proponent of comics as educational tools, so it's nice to see that Archie is taking a little time in the pages of this week's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #3 to provide all its readers with a fun history lesson about witches being tortured to death in the 17th century. I mean, yes, we can all enjoy these stories of teenage romance, school plays and worship of the Dark Lord Satan, but it never hurts to learn a little something along the way, right? Right.

So with that in mind, check out a preview below to see just how Roberto Aguirre Sacasa and Robert Hack are using one of the year's most fun comics to make learning fun! Oh, and also to probably ensnare your children into the blasphemous worship of the Author of All Lies. So, uh, watch out for that, I guess.









Here's the official solicitation:


It’s the night before Halloween, the night before Sabrina’s sixteenth birthday, the night of the blood-moon and the lunar eclipse, and Sabrina has made her decision: She will go into the woods of Greendale as a half-witch and emerge…on the other side of a frightful ritual…as a fully baptized member of the Church of Night. But there will be a cost, and his name is Harvey. And unbeknownst to Sabrina and her aunts, there is a serpent in the garden, their great enemy Madam Satan, who is conspiring against them...

For the record, I considering this is a comic about the casting of Bye Bye Birdie, I'm impressed at the restraint showed in not just making that solicit text the lyrics to "Kids."
