One of the longest-running supporting characters in Archie Comics history is about to get the spotlight…but you might not recognize him!
Sabrina’s loyal cat Salem has been with her in all her incarnations – from her many comic book series, her two animated cartoon series, her live-action TV movie and series…even her more serious “manga” series. This March, Salem goes from sidekick to main attraction in a story that kicks off a four-part miniseries-within-a-series starting in SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH #101: “YOUNG SALEM”! Only this time, this cool cat isn’t a cat at all!
In SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH #93 and #94, Salem’s backstory was explored in the two-part “Salem’s Secret.” That story highlighted a secret which linked Salem to Sabrina in an unexpected way, and explored the repercussions that followed…repercussions which affected everyone in the Magic Realm.
Now, Salem’s early days are explored once more in a special four-issue tale which harkens back to the days when he wasn’t an enchanted feline, but an actual boy wizard! That’s right: in this special storyline we take you back…way back…to when Salem was a little boy! Years later, an ill-conceived plot by Salem will incur the wrath of the leaders of the Magic Realm and lead to his enchanted punishment of spending the rest of his life as a furry feline. The magic begins in SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH #101 and continues through issue #104.
In this thrilling tale, you’ll journey to Salem’s original home on the Saberhagen Farm for the first time! You’ll also meet his mother, Felicia, and scruffy Uncle Mort. The enchanting saga begins when young Salem finds a talking frog who was once a wizard. The thrills, spills and surprises build from there!
The first issue is brought to you by fan-favorite Sonic writer Ian Flynn, with art from Chad Thomas.
