Keeping it light for you horror busybodies in the dead of Summer, we will be reading three 1st volumes of some of the most twisted and terrifying tales to scream across the glossy pages (no apologies for channeling the Cryptkeeper).

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Vol 1: The Crucible
More than just your Friday night Netflix and kill! On the eve of her sixteenth birthday, the young sorceress Sabrina Spellman finds herself at a crossroads, having to choose between an unearthly destiny and her mortal boyfriend, Harvey. But a foe from her family's past has arrived in Greendale, Madame Satan, and she has her own deadly agenda. Compiles the first five issues of the ongoing comic book series.

Legend Vol 1: Defend the Grounds
What if a biological terror agent wiped out most of humanity, and our domesticated animals were left in charge? How would our dogs and cats set about ruling and rebuilding the world? From acclaimed novelist Samuel Sattin and award-winning illustrator Chris Koehler comes Legend, where cat technology rules, dogs partner with hawks, and humans may be the most beastly creatures of all. Now collecting the first half of the epic comic series.

The Black Monday Murders Vol 1: All Hail, God Mammon
From Jonathan Hickman (East of West, Secret Wars, Avengers) and Tomm Coker (Undying Love) comes a new crypto-noir series about the power of dirty, filthy money... and exactly what kind of people you can buy with it. Classic occultism where the various schools of magic are actually clandestine banking cartels who control all of society: a secret world where vampire Russian oligarchs, Black popes, enchanted American aristocrats, and hitmen from the International Monetary Fund work together to keep all of us in our proper place. Collection of issues 1-4.

Besides Ms. Sabrina, who appears to be a little too gruesome for virgin eyes, you can find copies of Legend and BMM at your location Public Library Branch. Our satanic sister story is free through Amazon Prime Kindle or can be reasonably purchased at your local book or comicbook store.
