Hey guys, not comic related but this is a clip from Shannen Says where Shannen and Kurt talk a little about Charmed. I know us fans love things like that so i thought i post it.
The issue is available now in Comixology
Here is #24 cover in great quality.
This is not the final cover. David Seidman is now fixing some details and then he will release the final version for us.
Full Size HERE
We have an official release date from Zenescope
May 9, 2012
Westfield comics has a new release date for Charmed 24 :
Do not take the release date for granted. It is always tentative and will probably change.
But with #21 being released in May it seems logical to think we will have #24 in August and not in July as the previous tentative release date says.
Westfield comics also has a bigger cover than the one we already have (still waiting for the HQ cover to surface)
Dean Kotz posted a collage of his favorite pages adding:
The Charmed Vol. 3 tpb came out a couple days ago, and I realized I never posted any pages from a whole bunch of Charmed issues.
Here's a quick 4 page collage of some of my favorites from issue 16, written by Paul Ruditis (pgs 22, 14, 18 and 19)
This was the second issue where I experimented with the Prismacolor (PC935) black colored pencils. Loomis recommended them in one of his books, and I was looking for a way to get a richer, warmer black. At the time I was drawing on Borden & Riley Paris paper, and, goshdangit, didn't it work really nice. The combination of pencil and paper gave a very nice 50s/60s illustration quality of line and texture that almost "glowed" once they were scanned.
I'm from the school of thought that, if we're gonna print comics from pencils, they should LOOK like pencils. No point trying to make a pen-like line. Heck, it isn't a banana split if you use a watermelon. Whatever that means.
The PC935s were also great for adding very even grey tones. I wanted to have some control over the modelling. Partly because I'm a control freak and partly to take some of the burden off the colorist.
Only drawback with the 935s: no erasing. You mess up, you gotta redraw it on a separate sheet and stitch in Photoshop. Time consuming, but, luckily that didn't happen too often.
Well, happy with the results, I thought the experiment was a success, but, by the next issue, the powers-that-be wanted to switch to an open-line style. Hey, I'm flexible...but I was a little sad. And not just because I had already bought a couple dozen PC935s...
Zenescope twitted Issue #21 will be available in May
Still no HQ but you can now see Daryll better in this
Shannen on twitter answered about her likeness in the comics:
When a cover features Phoebe, Piper, Paige, Prue, Coop, Cole, Leo, Henry and Darryl you know it is the best cover the season has. David Seidman made the best cover with amazing likenesses for the exciting finale.
Not HQ yet but we will have it eventually.
Enjoy and get more excited.
Oh and by the way Paul confirmed there will be a 10th season. On twitter:
Issue 24 Summary:
