'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina': Differences Between Series and Comics
Sabrina the Teenage Witch is a comic book series published by Archie Comics about the adventures of a fictional American teenager named Sabrina Spellman. Storylines of the character at elementary-school-age also appear under the title "Sabrina -- That Cute Little Witch" in almost all of the Little Archie comics. The series' premise is that Sabrina, a "half-witch" — her mother is an ordinary human, or "mortal" as witches refer to them, while her father is a witch — lives with her two aunts, Hilda and Zelda Spellman , both witches themselves, in the fictional town of Greendale, which is located somewhere near Riverdale , the home of Archie Andrews. Also living with the three women as the family pet is Salem Saberhagen , a witch who's been turned into a cat as punishment for world domination attempts.
