Charmed #8 PREVIEWS, COMPLETED COVERS & LIMITED COVER (SPOILERS)
And here they are : exactly what we've been waiting for.
So the previews are all about Paige orbing the baby out of the womb and Piper and Phoebe fighting Rennek.
I love Carlos Granda's interior art. Piper's likeness is my favorite! I have to comment the detail: Granda has made Phoebe's hand tattoo.
You can also find the previews here
Charmed #9, #10 and #11 ACTUAL release dates
The release dates come straight from Paul so it is the most official and accurate info we can have:
As for Charmed #9 coming late March Paul commented:
He also said:
As Paul said:
So that means Issue #9 comes late next month and we will get 2 issues (10,11) in May.
From what i believe issue 12 will come in June, exactly 1 year after issue #0 was available and in schedule since Zenescope has charmed (12 issues) as a 12 months subscription.
Charmed #9 coming this month too
According to Zenescope Charmed #9 will be available by the end of the month.
If that happens then March will give us 3 issues in total.
As for Issue's #10 progress, i contacted Reno Maniquis and he said that issue #10 is not completed yet:

Charmed #8 release date + artists working on issues #9 and #10
I contacted Zenescope and it seems that Charmed #8 will be out in the NEXT WEEK or so.
Charmed is always out on Wednesdays so i guess the release date will be 3/16.
Here are the names that will make the interiors for issues #9 and #10.
Charmed 9: Dean Kotz
Charmed 10: Reno Maniquis
I did some research on both artists and here are some examples of their work i found just to let us know how their style is.
The first line of pictures is for Dean Kotz, the second line is for Reno Manquis:
"BOS pages, spells and artifacts" category now updated
it seems that news are scarce so you may be interested to see the updates in the character profiles and the "BOS pages,spells and artifacts" category.
Jay worked his magic again and recreated new pages for this category:
Also the "Darklighter's crossbow" and "Cupid Ring" were added in the artifacts in the same category.

Sketches by Dave Hoover
Dave Hoover is selling 3 of his Charmed #2 pages that we havent seen before in sketch form.
Find them on ebay here
"To the Warren Born" Sketches
Novo Malgapo has them for sale here
I have to say i enjoyed this extra story of volume 1 very much. When i asked Novo Malgapo if he is going to make a full issue in the future he said that he hoped so but Zenescope placed him in the Grimm Fairy Tales comics.

Is it a new one-shot? Is it just a more Piper centered issue? We will find out soon!
New Category: SPOILERS

Charmed #7 available today
Its 3/2 and that means only one thing... Charmed #7!
Buy the new issue and find out how the new story arc begins!
Lets see what's in store for Piper, Leo and Melinda!
The Heir Up There
Issue #8 (SPOILER FREE) preview
Here is a spoiler free page from issue #8.
Note its not a preview for issue #7 that is coming tommorow but for next months issue.
Art is by the new to charmed comics artist Carlos Granda.
I believe this preview shows Paige and Henry but I am not completely sure, the likeness is a little off especially for Henry if they truly are Paige and Henry.
Issue 12 covers (best quality)
Here are Charmed #12 covers and their colors look way better.
NEW CATEGORY: BOS pages, Spells & Artifacts used in the comics
There is a new category at the left column that lists all the BOS pages, spells and artifacts used in the comics.
First of all I want to say that this category was hardest and most fun that I have ever made. Credits for recreating all these BOS pages and spells go to Jay Perez also known as Mr. Jay in the comments.
Now let me explain what we brainstormed for everything he recreated.
Hope you like them and dont forget that Jay did all the hard work so leave him a comment below if you like what he made. Check the new category here
THIS IS DEDICATION
And to think i call myself charmedcomicfan. To tell you the truth i am almost nothing compared to Storygirl83. Enjoy her charmed comic collection of the first arc (0-5) that she send me. Its pretty amazing. Some of these issues are signed too.
Completed covers for issue #7
Here are the completed covers for issue #7.
As you may notice there is no change in Seidmans cover but the second cover has many changes. Piper, Paige and Phoebes heads have changed, the girls look more recognisable. The colors have toned down and the Demons in the background have now more detail especially the one next to Paige. The demons' eye colors have been erased.
I made a comparison to help you spot the differences.

Charmed #7 Limited Cover
Here is the limited #7 cover that will debut in Emerald city Comic Con.
Alyssa Milano expecting first child
No charmed comic related news but i just couldnt not write a post about the latest exciting news.
Alyssa Milano and David Buglari are expecting their first child.
Alyssa herself confirmed the news:
I wish a safe pregnancy to her, i am sure she is going to be a great mommy.
I seriously cant wait to see this panel of issue #1 become reality in some months :)
The artist of Issue #8 : Carlos Granda
John Hunt, the colorist of the comics tweeted:
Here are some of his work just to let us know how his style is. There are pages from Superman, Red Sonja and more:
Note that issue #8 is already finished.
Charmed #12 covers. (Bigger images)
Check the covers bigger and in higher quality
Charmed #12 title
This title may be a reference to "The Charm Offensive" meaning a publicity campaign, usually by politicians, that attempts to attract supporters by emphasizing their charisma or trustworthiness.
Also Paul twitted that one story arc doesnt have a specific number of issues.
Charmed #12 covers and summary
This summary, especially the part "that's been brewing since long before the prophecy of The Charmed Ones was foreseen" really makes me believe that the extra story of volume 1 may have something to do with it especially Isabel but its just a hunch of mine. I can understand why Henry may not be mentioned but where is Coop, he could sure be of help? The part "the Charmed universe may never look the same" is very interesting!
As for the covers it seems like the final battle with Neena (its obvious from the high heels) will happen in the Upper Regions (Up There). I am very curious why Paige wields a sword (is that sword Excalibur? It looks magical). I also wonder what these orbs that Piper and Phoebe carry are. The second covers design that features Paige has the same style as the cover that features Phoebe in issue #11, maybe we will get a cover of Piper in issue #13 in the same style. Sorry but for the moment i cant find bigger images.
Issue #6 review by Adam Reisinger (SPOILERS)
Adam has written a recap spoiling all the issue and then he reviews it. That means, dont read if you dont want to be spoiled.

Marcio Abreu QUITS Charmed
Bad news guys,
Marcio Abreu wrote in his deviantart that he stopped working on Charmed. He said that he worked on issues 4,5 and 7 and the reason he quits is lack of payment.
As we know, issue 8 is already finished so that means Zenescope may have found another artist.
Here is what Court Gebeau, Marcios agent commented in the fansite:
Zenescope released Charmed Comic TRAILER for Volume 1
The trailer amazed me!
Find the trailer in zenescopes youtube channel too
Jim Campbell commented in the fansite -interview- Issue #8 completed
Jim Campbell (twitter: @CampbellLetters), the charmed comics letterer commented in the fansite. Here is his message to us:
Thanks for the mention, folks, and thank you to everyone who was interested enough to come and take a look at my blog. It's nice to see the enthusiasm and support for the title, and that
everyone's efforts are appreciated.
You can be certain that all of us involved with the title are acutely aware of affection and regard in which the series is held by its fans, and are striving to our very best to produce a comic which honors that!
As an aside, in the unlikely event that anyone's interested in what I do, and why I do it, I was interviewed recently and you can read the results below:
I look forward to working on many more issues (and, to follow up what John was saying about the colors, the lettering is also done… I believe we're just waiting on a final CBS sign-off and #8 will be in the bag).
Charmed #6 previews (Spoilers) - Someone is back
Here are the first 4 pages of Charmed #6. Interiors By Tess Fowler and colours by John Hunt.
Elise is back and her likeness is really good. The girls look fine and i can recognise them. As for Mika we have met her from issue #3 and it seems she is "the friend". The panel in which Phoebe is burned and the panel in which Phoebe remembers killing Cal are amazing.
The issue takes place less than a year from February 29,2009 so it is probably in February or March 2008.
EDIT: i have to comment the detail. Did you spot Alyssa's neck tattoo in the 3rd page?
You can also find the images here (because i know the lettering cant be seen easily here)
Issue #13 starting a new story arc
When i asked David Seidman if there are going to be other characters in the covers and not only the CO like cover 3 (Tyler) and cover 7 (Leo) he replied:
So that either means the second story arc will take place between issues 7-12 or between issues 7-11 if issue #12 is going to be a one-shot or something else.

The summary of Volume 1
Hear now the words of the witches...
A centuries old spell unlocked the power of the Charmed Ones, three sisters born to protect the innocent. Through success and tragedy, love and loss, the descendants of Melinda Warren battled the forces of evil for eight years before winning their happily ever after. But that was only the start of their story. It's been a year and a half since Piper, Phoebe, and Paige were victorious in their ultimate battle against evil. They've put the past behind them and settled into their relatively quiet lives with their families. The death of the first innocent that the Charmed Ones ever saved has reawakened an ancient evil more powerful than the sisters have ever faced. Now with a brand new threat emerging, the Charmed Ones must prepare for the fight of their lives.
"Beautiful women, magic and mystery are all staples of Zenescope and Charmed has them in abundance."
Charmed Volume 1 is out (earlier than expected)
A big thanks to Mr. Jay for sharing the images.
The volume includes issues 0-5 and a complete cover gallery. There IS a special feature. The trade features a six-page short story entitled "To The Warren Born" written by Paul Ruditis and penciled by Novo Malgapo. It centers on Melinda Warren's mother Charlotte while pregnant.
In the images you can see the front and back cover and also how thick the volume is. It looks amazing! Oh what i wouldnt give to obtain it!
Rose Mcgowan and Victor Webster talking Charmed comics
These days i am tweeting the charmed stars about the charmed comics linking them collages of how they look in the charmed comics.
When i linked a collage of Paige in the comics to Rose Mcgowan (the collage included the mystery cover in which Paige is featured with an embryo), she replied asking:
I then answered her that the comics take place 1,5 year after season 8 and that she already has her twins but we dont know if that is her third child yet since the cover is for a future issue.
Rose retweeted my tweet and link to the collage and made many people learn about the existance of the comics, which is great. Many people contact me now asking me where they can buy the comics. Note that the collage gained 1000+ views. WOW
Also when i tweeted to Victor Webster a link with a collage of how Coop looks in the comics, he replied:
I then answered him that he can find them in comic book stores, online comic book stores and even ebay. Its great that he is interested in them.
Charmed Volume 1 Cover
A new cover may not have been made but Issue's 1 cover was altered for Volume 1.
In stores Mid February.
Charmed #6 preview page (SPOILER FREE) UPDATED with pencilled version
Pencills by Tess Fowler and Colors by John Hunt.
The preview is page 1 of Issue 6 and takes place at Phoebe's office at The Bay Mirror. The family photo looks really cute. Likeness for Phoebe and Coop is really nice (cant say about Paige cause its not really clear in this page). I think i will enjoy this issue!
Covers and Summary of Charmed #11 (UPDATED: bigger image)
Alone. Out of options. Out of time. A decision is made that could affect The Power of Three and irrevocably change The Charmed Ones forever. Humanity hangs in the balance in the coming showdown between good and evil.
I really like the Phoebe one but the other seems unfinished and not so well made. It looks weird and their bodies dont seem to match the faces. The big eyes are really a mystery. Who do you think it is?
The first cover is by David Seidman.
Issue's 5 plot (HUGE SPOILERS)
So some of you asked for spoilers and i will give them to you. Those of you who dont want to be spoiled stay away from this post.
Charmed #5 Previews + Completed Cover - Billie is Back
A unicorns head, Neena taking the throne and teasing us about her real nature and ... oh Billie is back! Welcome back Billie. Her likeness is amazing.
Paul Ruditis' Message to us
This is a message Paul send me so i can share with everyone. It has to do with Prue's sketch.
I wanted touch base and set the record straight on that beautiful piece of artwork that was briefly posted the other day. The artwork was just a test piece that Marcio created as part of
his work on the comic book line, showing the range of likenesses he can draw. I'm sorry to say that it has no meaning to the storyline beyond that. Though I haven't spoken with Marcio directly
(we generally work through a translator), I'm pretty sure he put it up there so he could share the work he is proud of, totally unaware that it would spark such excitement among you all. Believe
me, I understand how simply seeing that image would garner such a reaction.
I am truly sorry for getting all your hopes up in that way. That piece of artwork is no indication of whether or not Prue will return. Also, keep in mind that if we were going to do something so major we wouldn't tease it by randomly posting a sketch like that. I'm not saying that she's not coming back. I'm not saying that she is coming back. I'm just saying that the image should not be seen as an indicator.
Sorry. I would have chimed in sooner, but I had to check with Zenescope before I said anything.
Now, please feel free to tear apart this note to examine the wording for any secret meaning you desire. But I promise this letter is not an indicator either.
All the best,
Marcio Abreu sketches ... PRUE HALLIWELL !!!!
In his comicon art page Marcio has a sketch of PRUE HALLIWELL for sale. There you can also find all his other charmed sketches.
According to Paul Ruditis this has nothing to do with Prue returning or not in the comics.
