Is it really any surprise that this comic is being featured this week? Sabrina Spellman is one of my all time favorite characters in fiction, and while her Netflix show has been a huge success, her comic adventures have been all but nonexistent.

And that book is going to be a surprise. What is it? A book starring the former TGIF star Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.
Seriously. Read the rest of this entry
