  1. When I read Stephen’s tweet about this book I did just that, jumped onto Comixology and grabbed it (along with some others) Sadly I had to wait till late at night when my wee kids went to sleep to read it but I was glad that I did.

    The artwork, while not traditional Archie, is to die for. I also loved every panel.

    I think my favourite part was when the witches removed Sabrina’s mouth, truly a great bit, I never saw it coming!

    All in all I agree with the guys, if you have not read this yet what are you waiting for!?

  2. It is great. It totally feels like those old Archie books I picked up in the grocery line back in the day, but ya know with Zombies and scary stuff.

  3. I may have to get this from comixology, but I am hoping to get it in print from one of our local stores here. so far no luck.
