Although Archie's core line of kid-friendly titles has been grabbing its share of headlines lately, the company's biggest critical and commercial success over the past year has undoubtedly been Afterlife With Archie, the moody, adult-oriented story of how the zombie apocalypse hits Riverdale. Created by Francesco Francavilla and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the book has been hailed by fans and critics, and with that kind of praise, it was pretty much inevitable that they'd expand the line with another similar title.
Now, they have. This week, Archie announced Chilling Adventures ofSabrina, an ongoing series about everyone's favorite teen witch, from Afterlife writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Robert Hack.
For those of you whose lives have been suffering from a deficiency of magical hijinx, we have some good news: That Sabrina the Teenage Witchcartoon that was announced by Archie Comics and the Hub in 2011 is finally set to debut next month, just in time for Halloween. Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch, which stars High School Musical's Ashley Tisdale as Sabrina and My Little Pony's Tabitha St. Germain as Aunt Hilda -- making it just one dirtbike and half a Bulbasaur away from being my Platonic ideal of television -- will kick off on Saturday, October 12.
And from the looks of things, it seems like it actually will be pretty heavily influenced by Tania Del Rio's manga-inspired 70-issue run on the Sabrina comic.
On the off chance that you're of the rare mindset that there just aren't enough magical teens in movies these days, take heart: As reported by Deadline, Sony Pictures has struck a deal with Archie Comics to bringSabrina the Teenage Witch to the movies. And it seems that for this incarnation, they're going for "an origin story in the vein of Spider-Man."It's not really surprising that Archie would choose Sabrina
This week, Archie Comics announced that they were teaming up with the animation company Moonscoop to bring Sabrina the Teenage Witch back to television. It's not exactly a surprising move; thanks to a previous animated series and a sitcom starring Clarissa Melissa Joan Hart, Sabrina's been one of Archie's most prominent properties outside of comics for years.
Sonic The Hedgehog has achieved something few comic book characters from the 1990s have: his title has survived for over a dozen years! Why? Chalk it up to a fiercely loyal fan base (comprised of a surprising number of adults in addition to children) who take their hero as seriously as fans of Star Trek! The comic books offer fans adventures which go beyond the video games and animated cartoons to expand the Sonic universe-- and the personalities of the characters who populate it.
