This blistering new six-issue miniseries joins the Wonder Comics lineup with stories by award-winning fan favorite Sam Humphries (HARLEY QUINN) and art by Joe Quinones (Howard the Duck).

INGRID: I love the concept of the Hero Dial, and this just looks like it could be a whole lot of fun.

MATTHEW: This book may be written for me! I’m hoping that it ends up being a great new era of Dial H, but I’ll settle for just a decent story.

Newly relocated to Greendale with her aunts Hilda and Zelda (also witches), Sabrina is trying to make the best of being the new girl in town which so far includes two intriguing love interests, an instant rivalry, a couple of misfits that could turn into BFFs, and trying to save the high school (and maybe the world) from crazy supernatural events. NBD!

ASHLEY: Honestly, a perfect blend of the classic Sabrina we know from the comics and the Chilling Adventures update with a darker tone. I loved this. Practically perfect in every way. Fans of Sabrina in any form will dig this.
