SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH #99
“The Final Battle, Part 2 of 3”: The countdown to issue #100 continues!  With the aid of their new allies, the Four Blades, Sabrina and her friends set out to battle the villainous Vosblanc.  They journey to the main plaza of the Magic Realm only to find that the source of all magic, the Mana Tree, is dying.  Not very good timing as the first wave of Vosblanc’s followers attack!  And just as he did before, Vosblanc tries to turn the entire Magic Realm against Sabrina and her friends.  Their only hope is to convince everyone of the withered Mana Leaf’s existence, but Vosblanc has other plans.  With the situation more desperate than ever, it’s up to Sabrina, now one of the most powerful magic users in the realm, to do the unimaginable to save it.  Can she save the day or will life as she knows it be changed forever?
