In the upcoming Sabrina Anniversary Spectacular #1 one-shot from Archie Comics, arriving at your Local Comic Shop starting on September 7th, 2022, Sabrina Spellman will face off in opposition to an all-new adversary: Amber Nightstone! In the all-new story “Celebration Vexation!” by Dan Parent, Glenn Whitmore, and Jack Morelli, you’ll meet the brand new witch on the town. But within the meantime, you may get your first have a look at the character proper right here, immediately at The Beat!
Meet Amber Nightstone
Here’s the outline of the story from Archie Comics:
We couldn’t probably enter spooky season with out celebrating Sabrina as a lot as attainable! And we’re kicking off this spectacular with a BRAND NEW Sabrina story that we assure would be the biggest Sabrina Halloween story ever! In “Celebration Vexation!” It’s Sabrina’s birthday and she or he’s celebrating her day—with an epic battle in opposition to her nemesis, a BRAND NEW character named AMBER NIGHTSTONE! Amber is an evil witch born at precisely the identical time as Sabrina. Only one witch born that day might stay amongst mortals, and Amber needs her flip, so she has to erase Sabrina from historical past! All that plus a set of classic-style spell-binding tales!
In the press release, Parent shared his ideas on the creation of the character:
“The creation of Amber Nightstone is super fun because believe it or not, in Sabrina’s 60-year history, she’s never had a true nemesis. Sure, she’s had her adversaries in the past, but Amber is basically the evil version of Sabrina. And Amber is tired of being cast aside and wants her time in the limelight. So now as Sabrina turns 60, we enter a whole new realm of fun!”
And Archie Comics Editor-In-Chief Mike Pellerito shared his ideas on Amber Nightstone, as properly:
“I started referring to her as ‘Dark Sabrina,’ and that’s where the thinking was originally. Sabrina has a great cast of characters in the comics but didn’t have a magical teen rival until now. That’s how I think of the cast of characters: Is there a way to challenge something established? Do we need someone who can do something different and give us some fun story points? Having Dan Parent on this kind of thing is great; he’s a (not so) secret weapon!”
Arriving this autumn
In addition to the brand new story that includes Nightstone, the one-shot will even function a number of reprinted milestone tales from all through Sabrina’s 60-year historical past.
