Charmed #10 PREVIEWS (SPOILERS)

First page features Phoebe and Coop. Second features Piper and :)
Zenescope's Product Catalog : Charmed
Zenescope released its product catalog for 2011.
Charmed Trade Paperbacks are listed and we get to see the completed cover for Volume 2.
I'm not a big fan of that cover and i find it weird that they chose this one to be Vol 2 cover. I think there are many much more beautifull covers to use. I really hope they change it.
Charmed has been rated Fantasy/Action-Adventure 13+

Charmed #13 PHOTO COVER
It's a pretty photo cover for Piper's One-Shot isnt it?
Check the post below to read the summary of Issue #13.
Oh btw now that we are talking about covers, Issue #10 will only have 1 cover, the one by David Seidman.
Charmed Issue #13 summary - PIPER'S ONE SHOT
Issue #13: Piper's Place
Owning a restaurant of her very own has been Piper's dream for years. Now it's finally real. Opening night is a huge success and she's the talk of the town, but the additional workload--along with the magical turmoil of late--has taken a toll on her family life. A child's misguided spell has disastrous results as Piper learns whether or not she can truly have it all while she copes with a situation that would leave other moms quaking in their shoes.
I had a feeling that Charmed #13's summary would kinda spoil if Neena's storyline ends with #12 but it really doesnt, this summary hints that Neena may still be there.
I wonder if Paige will have her oneshot after arc 3 like how Phoebe got hers after arc 1 and Piper will get one after arc 2.
Second Review for Charmed #9 by Fandomania
The review contains major spoilers so please dont read if you dont want to be spoiled. It is a much more positive review than the previous one i linked yesterday.
The preview panel below does not contain spoilers.
Charmed #9 first review
Dont worry the review does not contain spoilers. It isnt very positive but i think the reviewer himself isnt exactly the right person to review the issue cause as he says he jumped to issue #9 without having read the previous ones and he hasnt seen any charmed episode in ages.
CharmedComicFan is 1 year old
Last year on May 23,2010 i started updating CharmedComicFan. I opened it days before Charmed #0 was out because of all the previews, rumours and news that were surfacing on the internet. So i thought of making a fansite in order to gather them all in one place for all the fans and make a new charmed fan community! I still remember the first time i found an article that said charmed comics were to be made. I was soo excited and i am thankfull the comic is great and i am still as excited! Lets hope they keep coming for much much longer!
Thank you all for visiting and supporting charmedcomicfan.
Trivia - A crossover demon?
We all saw this demon in issue #5 and #8 of Charmed. He is nicknamed the goat demon by the fans. As it seems this demon has first appeared in many issues of the Grimm Fairy Tales (popular comic book series by Zenescope) and is named "The Dark One".
One more preview page for you!
In the previous "previews for issue #9" post i posted the first 4 pages of issue #9. Now 1 more page, the 5th page was revealed. You can also find the first 5 pages of the issue here
Zenescope promises 4 Issues over the course of just 6 weeks
After people complained when the delay news were posted, Zenescope wrote in facebook:
I'm sure this is a promise they will keep!
Charmed #13 Title
Paul twitted the title for Issue #13.
My first thought was that maybe this title has to do with Piper's restaurant but who knows.
When asked if it's going to be a Piper one-shot, he replied:
Hmmm. Now the next thing we need to see is the summary!
Charmed #9 delayed for May 25, 2011
Zenescope officially anounced it on twitter:
The completed covers
Charmed #13 cover
I know all of you were waiting this cover for so long so here it is, David Seidman's cover for issue #13. It features Piper and Melinda. I appreciate this cover very much cause it is different from we have seen so far and also promises we will see more and more from the personal lives of the sisters.
Perhaps this issue will introduce us to the sister's lives after the battle with Neena (if it ends in #12) and how they will try to balance things again (magic,kids,job,marriage)
What Piper carries in the cover may hint that, as we probably see all her life in a pile. Her witch aspect through the BOS, scrying crystal and potions, her housewife aspect - married with children (wedding photo, toys, Melinda, ironing, washing, cooking) and her job-restaurant (food, cooking ingrediants and other cooking stuff)
Now what's left is for the summary to be revealed. Who knows, this may be a Piper one-shot. We have to wait and see.
David commented on the cover:
Charmed #9 previews!
Yes, you read that right, your eyes are not deceiving you.
Here are the previews for Charmed #9 ready for you to explore them.
If you havent read previous issues please dont read these previews because there are many spoilers.
The Spoilers page for Issue #9 is now ready, there you can discuss anything spoilery about issue #9. Check this page here
Charmed #14 - Charmed #10 to the printers
According to what Paul twitted he is now working on Issue #14.
Zenescope has informed us that they want to continue Charmed after issue #13 even if plans have not been made yet so knowing that Paul now works on #14 makes me more sure it will.
By the way, according to Raven Gregory Charmed issue 10 went to the printers on Thursday.
Charmed Volume 1 (containing Issues 0-5) and Charmed issue #6 were added today on the digital store of Comixology and you can buy/download them on your iphone/ipad/android/iphone or on your computer.
Find them here: Comixology digital Charmed
Charmed Issue #9 delayed for next week - new dates for the rest of the issues
Unfortunately Issue #9 will not be out tomorrow but next week on Wednesday May 18, 2011.
The previews are still being prepared so i can't say when we will have them for now.
There are also new tentative dates for the rest of the issues:
Issue 10: June 8th
Issue 11: June 15th
Issue 12: June 29th
I guess these dates also push back Volume 2
Charmed #12 artist
The artist for Issue #12 will be Dean Kotz, the same artist that worked on Issue #9 (will be out next week). So next week's Issue will be an important indicator on how #12 will look like.
Hmm considering that, i wonder if Dean, Reno and Tess will be taking turns on the issues. Dean on Issue #9 then Reno on Issue #10 and Tess on #11 then again Dean on #12 and Reno on #13. Maybe this will continue after issue 13.
Charmed #13 artist + Charmed #9 previews coming REALLY soon
As for the covers of Charmed #13. David Seidman is working on Charmed 13 cover A as we already know and die to finally see, but he will be working on cover B too (probably a photo cover). There will also be a cover C (not a photo cover) for which an artist has not been decided yet (May i suggest Greg Horn??).
As for the more exciting news, the interior artist for Issue #13 will be Reno Maniquis. It seems he will both make issue 10 and 13. We all loved his try-out pages and i wonder if he will now be in the main team.
By the way Issue #10 is fully completed (lettered too).
According to Zenescope, they are now preparing the previews for Issue #9 and we will have them soon!
I really hope the next post will be the previews for #9.
Charmed #8 trivia
These are some fun trivia for issue #8. Thought i share them with you. Some of them are submitted by people in the Charmed wiki.
Charmed tryout pages from Issue #10 artist.
These are definately not previews for an upcoming issue but we sure get to see the style and likeness of the artist that works on issue 10.
This is what the artist (probably Reno Maniquis) commented on these sketches:
The sketches are from the scene of issue #8 where Paige orbs the baby out of the dead woman's womb. I have to say that i love the likeness of these sketches! Especially Paige and Piper.
All of Marcio Abreu's sketches of issue 7
Charmed #7 and #8 in top 300 comics of March
Charmed #7 is ranked 261 in the top 300 comics of March selling 6160 issues.
Charmed #8 is very near, ranked 265 selling 6046 issues.
Charmed #6 was ranked 210 in February selling 7014 issues so March sales may not be the best yet but i am sure this is possibly because 2 issues were out in the same month and they will definately rise again.
Charmed #10 Completed
An artist named Ernest Leo Hernandez twitted:
I then asked him what issue he is drawing:
Ernest is the art director, Reno Maniquis is the main interior artist.
Joe Brusha on Charmed - Volume #1 is Zenescope's best-selling trade paperback
Joe Brusha, president of Zenescope talked about Charmed in Megacon:
Charmed Volume 2 cover confirmed
Zenescope released June's solicitations and while i expected to see Charmed #13 cover and summary in this months solicitations since Charmed #12 was in May's solicitations, i didnt.
Probably Zenescope wants to include Charmed #13 to its right month's solicitations and that will be July.
But now Charmed Volume 2 cover and summary are officially announced. It is indeed the Photo Cover that will be used for Issue #9. Will probably be altered later for the volume's publication.
The Volume will have 184 pages, which is more than Vol's 1 since it will include 7 issues and not 6 like Vol 1 included.
