Recruiting two other young witches (from a neighboring coven), Sabrina holds a séance, but as ever, Madame Satan is pulling the strings behind the scenes, and what Sabrina taps into is much more dangerous – and diabolical.

MATTHEW: I can’t remember the last time I looked forward to a comic as much as I’m looking forward to this one… Maybe 2011?

STEPHEN: I think this will be handled well, and certainly taking the Hanna-Barbera and having them crossover like this is something we rarely see, so this one is definitely a must read this week.

ROB: Danny and Luke as a team was something I never got to experience back when. Their time together had been over before I got into comics. I now understand why they made such a good team.

She has put out a hit on his head and now no one is safe!

ROB: Miles getting to deal with Peter’s classic villains is a great idea. Miles in the 616-Earth is a great idea. Mile is a great idea, I can’t get past how good the character is.
