Sabrina, The Teenage Witch #58 (Archie Comics, August 2004)

I don't know why, because I'm not a manga reader, but the Tania Del Rio run of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch has always kinda intrigued me. I've always meant to track down the run and give it a read out of curiousity's sake, and finally have. I think the thing that fascinates me the most about it is that it's pretty much the prototype for some of the stuff that Archie Comics is experimenting with these days (i.e., a change-up to the Dan DeCarlo driven "house style", continuity influenced story arcs, etc.,)...

From Wikipedia:

In 2004, beginning with issue #58 (in the second Sabrina the Teenage Witch comic book series), the comics were taken over by Tania del Rio with her manga-inspired art and design style. The comics were then released featuring new characters and a slightly more serious, continuity-heavy plot. The manga Sabrina story wrapped up at issue #100 in 2009, albeit with a few unresolved subplots. Only one manga-sized trade paperback was released during the series' run, reprinting issues #58-61.
