Not to be confused with The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series, the graphic novel Sabrina is the intimate tale of a missing girl and the impact her loss has on her loved ones.

Conspiracy theories, breakdown, murder: Everything’s gonna be all right―until it isn’t

When Sabrina disappears, an airman in the U.S. Air Force is drawn into a web of suppositions, wild theories, and outright lies. He reports to work every night in a bare, sterile fortress that serves as no protection from a situation that threatens the sanity of Teddy, his childhood friend and the boyfriend of the missing woman. Sabrina’s grieving sister, Sandra, struggles to fill her days as she waits in purgatory. After a videotape surfaces, we see devastation through a cinematic lens, as true tragedy is distorted when fringe thinkers and conspiracy theorists begin to interpret events to fit their own narratives.

 

 

Drew Goddard will be working on the script for the film adaptation. Goddard received an Academy Award nomination for his adapted screenplay for Neil Weir’s The Martian, and one of his past credits includes Marvel’s The Defenders. The man’s mastered the art of the adaptation as both The Martian and The Defenders were both amazing!

 

 

On top of that, New Regency is the production company behind critically acclaimed films such as “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Birdman”, “12 Years a Slave,” and “The Revenant.”

 

 

As a huge fan of graphic novels, it does my heart some good to see a graphic novel given the same attention and care as these fantastic films.
