The Complete Sabrina the Teenage Witch: 1962-1971 by Archie ComicsNot everyone realizes that Sabrina predates Samantha! These comics go back as far as 1962, which may account for her Tina Cole / Doris Day style helmet hair. Her appearances in this volume are fairly rare until the turn of the Seventies, though, when the Archie Comedy Hour got off the ground on CBS and her comic-book appearances correspondingly multiplied. There is little difference between early-Sixties Sabrina and early-Seventies Sabrina, except that along the way the illustrators jettisoned her calculating, sexy diamond eyes and replaced them with something more wide-eyed and teenish.
Sabrina, generally a good-humored sort of teen, is apt to kick when her betters (witches higher up in the hierarchy) tell her what to do; also when she comes across rank unfairness or bad behavior. The imputation that witches are normally covert and tricky may annoy some, but judged as an artifact of the time, shes an alright girl. Ten bucks for this B&W digest of 512 pp. is a very good price.

Created by writer George Gladir and artist Dan DeCarlo , she first appeared in that humor anthology's lead story the logo then spelled "Teen-Age" ,  and eventually became one of Archie Comics ' major characters, appearing in an animated series and a television sitcom. Gladir recalled in We continued to do Sabrina stories off and on in Mad House until when we were flabbergasted to hear it was to become an animated [TV series]. When it came to naming Sabrina I decided to name her after a woman I recalled from my junior high school days In addition, the woman's name had a New England ring to it. Some years later I recalled the woman's name was not Sabrina, but actually Sabra Holbrook. Originally, Sabrina was created by her two aunts, Hilda and Zelda Spellman , from a magic potion that turned out wrong.
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. Sabrina's primary romantic interest is her mortal boyfriend Harvey Kinkle who, like nearly all the other mortals in Sabrina's world, is unaware his girlfriend is a witch.
