The prior issue might have been the best the series has done yet and that arc is just getting started. Ms Marvel was certainly 2014’s runaway success story but in 2015 it looks to be even better

Review of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #2

cby Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa & Robert Hack 

The debut issue of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was solid in it’s set up of the world, it introduced readers to the concept, the players & the stories direction very well but it didn’t leave a whole lot for anything in the plot to develop. Enter the long overdue second issue of the series that takes Chilling Adventures…strange ending and runs wild on the concept with excellent EC style horror. The story follows Madame Satan, the scorned lover of Sabrina’s father as she returns to earth from hell in search of his child in an act of revenge and all the twisted steps she takes to get to her. This is some of strongest horror work in comics that feels relatively vintage in aesthetic but still fresh and unique. Plot wise, this issue is still as measured as it’s predecessor but in a way that almost enhances the feeling of terror with the fear slowly creeping out of the narrative. Artist Robert Hack is perfect for this style, it’s similar to Tula Lotay but a rougher line that adds to the feeling of discomfort while recalling back to the classic horror illustration style of pre-code comics. Inexplicably, Archie is making a strong argument as the best publisher of for horror comics and while Sarbina is connected to Afterlife With Archie, is it’s second installment the creators make a strong argument for the book on it’s own merits as a horror experience that is taking it’s influence from the classics and retrofitting it into something else entirely, something wicked, something terrifying and something exceptional.
