Sabrina The Teenage Witch #80

“Hidden Powers”: Fed up with constantly having to come up with a water-breathing spell so Llandra can visit merman Narayan, Sabrina works up a spell that will give Narayan legs instead! The only thing is… the spell doesn’t exist and there are no new spells, so where did the amazing power to create a brand new spell come from?! Her timing couldn’t be worse as back in the Magic Realm, it’s time for the year-end “magical review.” Sabrina’s teacher is concerned that she has tapped into some secret, advanced magic that could have unforeseen ramifications. The council agrees and even imprisons Sabrina, keeping her under surveillance! Only the Queen knows the secret behind Sabrina’s powers… but will she reveal them?! SCRIPT AND ART: Tania del Rio.
