Archie’s releasing a new miniseries for Sabrina the Teenage Witch. This version of Sabrina’s a more traditional take, unlike the recent comic and TV incarnations. The miniseries’ premise also seems to be a re-introduction of Sabrina to new readers—here, Sabrina’s shown moving to Greendale with her aunts.

Archie’s also putting out a trade for the “Archie Meets Batman ’66” miniseries. Meanwhile, their “Jughead: The Hunger” comic (about Jughead as a werewolf) is ending its “first season” (huh?). A crossover between “The Hunger” and “Vampironica” (another series, about Veronica as a vampire) is coming soon.

IDW’s putting out (since Marvel can’t be bothered) not just a kid-friendly Black Panther comic this month, but also ones for the Avengers and Spider-Man. Or Spider-people, as Spider-Gwen and Miles Morales are also featured.

IDW is also publishing a trade for the “Star Trek: The Animated Series”/”Transformers” crossover. I can’t recall seeing the Animated Series in comic form before, so I’m interested in reading this one, even if I’m indifferent about Optimus Prime and friends.

“The Nicodemus Job,” a story set in the distant past of Atomic Robo’s world, is being published as a trade paperback this month.

“Lumberjanes” publishes its 60th issue this month, though the series celebrates its fifth anniversary in April.
