Sabrina the Teenage Witch’s cat Salem has been around in many incarnations from comics to cartoon to live action television series, and this March, Archie Comics is giving the sidekick his own miniseries.
In SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH #93 and #94, Salemâ€™s backstory was explored in the two-part â€œSalemâ€™s Secret.â€Â That story highlighted a secret which linked Salem to Sabrina in an unexpected way, and explored the repercussions that followedâ€¦repercussions which affected everyone in the Magic Realm.
Now, Salemâ€™s early days are explored once more in a special four-issue tale which harkens back to the days when he wasnâ€™t an enchanted feline, but an actual boy wizard! Thatâ€™s right: in this special storyline we take you backâ€¦way backâ€¦to when Salem was a little boy! Years later, an ill-conceived plot by Salem will incur the wrath of the leaders of the Magic Realm and lead to his enchanted punishment of spending the rest of his life as a furry feline.Â The magic begins in SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH #101 and continues through issue #104.
In this thrilling tale, youâ€™ll journey to Salemâ€™s original home on the Saberhagen Farm for the first time!Â Youâ€™ll also meet his mother, Felicia, and scruffy Uncle Mort.Â The enchanting saga begins when young Salem finds a talking frog who was once a wizard.Â The thrills, spills and surprises build from there!
