For those of you with an iphone or ipad, you can download and read my entire 42-issue run of manga Sabrina the Teenage Witch through the Archie Comics App!
For those of you who aren't familiar with the series:Sabrina thought her life was hard enough juggling between her mortal high school and her magical charm school. But when she starts discovering that she has unique powers, and that the Magic Council isn't too happy about the ways she's been using these new skills, things really start getting tough!
To add to the mix, there's two guys in her life who are as different as night and day: shy, serious mortal Harvey, and daring, bishonen wizard Shinji. Sabrina is currently with Harvey but can't help but feel jealous when Shinji shows up with a mysterious new girlfriend named Hemlock.
Meanwhile, Harvey has no idea Sabrina is a witch, while Shinji is currently planning a rebellion against the Queen of the magic realm to avenge his dead parents.
And even though she initially tries to stay out of it, Sabrina gets sucked into the political intrigue and realizes the Magic Realm Queen is hiding a terrible secret that will surely lead to the downfall of the entire Magic Realm.
But will helping Shinji with his cause betray Sabrina's own aunt who is a member of the Magic Council? And will Harvey ever realize Sabrina is a witch?
