THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA #7

Story by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Art by Robert Hack

Sabrina is back with all the flavors of Hammer, Argento, and EARLY Carpenter.  We return to this world of Satanic panic and magic powers beyond comprehension before Sabrina’s birth.  Long before Salem the cat and Sabrina’s Aunts set their iconic lives up in Greendale there was a little boy named Eddie who conjured a demon.

We finally learn the dark past of the gifted Edward Spellman!  Edward Spellman is Sabrina’s father and has since taken over the body of Harvey Kinkle.  As per usual I’ll avoid digging too deeply into my fandom if it can be helped, but possessed Harvey is devastating and really exciting.  We join Edward and Mrs. Kinkle in the Kinkle residence where Edward (in Harvey’s body) is slowly eating Harvey’s dad.

Over dinner Edward begins to regale Mrs. Kinkle with his life story.  We learn young Eddie Spellman was an altar boy to Father Constant.  Father Constant was an alchemist and priest within the Church of the Night.  Eddie Spellman was a precocious little occultist, even for the masters and elders within his order when he summoned his first demon at the age of seven.  I’ll leave the spoilers with these few quick details and this image:

One heck of a Patronus if you ask me.

This is a triumphant and welcome return to Greendale.  Grim B-horror madness is all any comic reader needs in their life on a stormy day like the one I’m writing this review on.  I now return to my tower, with my incantations and books, until the next Blood Moon frees me to read the next issue of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
