It's a long wait between issues in the Archie Horror line, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is no exception. If there is one rule in comics, it's that if you're going to make your readers wait, then it better be worth it. So far, Sabrina has been worth it, but it seems to moving very slow. Last issue promised the return of Sabrina's father, this issue delivers his story.
The delays in the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Afterlife With Archie have been hard for fans of the Archie Horror Line to take. Fortunately, these delays are not accompanied with missed solicitations, just long breaks between the publishing of issues with most recently almost a year between issues.

Dynamite's handling of the character since 2010 has honored her past, as well as progressing her story forward.
Archie Comics keeps doing a better and better job of updating their line of comics. It all started with Afterlife With Archie. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina continues this trend of taking old characters and updating them. We've yet to see the two books crossover, but it's beginning to look like a matter of time before it happens.
It's been a while since the first issue, but when I saw the preview copy arrive for the second, I was certain to sit down and read it right away. I'm hoping that the Archie Horror line sticks around, but dread the inevitable Josie and the Pussycats title, although if they do it, I'm betting on some type of were-cats.
