The origins of Sabrina The Teenage Witch came from the Archie Comics. The creators introduced her in October, 1962. Her character was created by writer George Gladir and artist Dan DeCarlo. They first started to introduce her in the elementary comics Little Archie, and the line they used in almost all of the Little Archie comics was “Sabrina–That cute little witch.” Sabrina’s town, Greendale, is right next to Archie’s town Riverdale.

 

Who is Sabrina and what is her life like?

 

Sabrina is a half witch; her mother is mortal and her father is a warlock. They both died in a supposed car crash, but no one knows if this is actually the true cause of their death. After they died she was passed onto her two aunts, Hilda and Zelda Spellman. In the comics, Hilda and Zelda don’t have a job, but in the new netflix show The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina The Teenage Witch, they own a funeral home. Sabrina also has a cousin named Ambrose. In the comics, Ambrose does not live with them, but in the Netflix series he does.  Sabrina has a boyfriend named Harvey Kinkle, who, like Sabrina’s friends, is completely oblivious to the fact she is a witch. Lastly, Sabrina has a cat named Salem. Salem was once a warlock, but he attempted world domination. He was then turned into a cat as punishment. Salem was named after the 1600’s Salem Witch trial.
