Review: Charmed Season 9 Volume 3 by Paul Ruditis


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:

The years have passed quickly for The Charmed Ones since they learned of their magical heritage.
In only one decade they have experienced so much love and loss, joy and sorrow, failure and success.
But time marches on and new challenges will be met as Phoebe is haunted by her past, Piper must deal with the present, and Paige is forced to cope with the future. But none of those events will prepare them to face the truth behind a family secret that could change everything for the Warren line!

MY TAKE:

I was a Charmed fan since Season 1 so I was super excited to read this book.

Charmed Season 9 Volume 3 picks up where the show left off. The girls all have their own families now but they're still dealing with magical stuff. This book is pretty much a collection of several comic book issues, particularly issues 13-19, as seen in the Zenescope website.

It was great seeing what the Charmed Ones were up to now, even though I didn't really like where the show went by the time season 9 came around. The stories and the characterization of the sisters are very true to the show. As such, Piper is still my favorite, although Paige comes a close second. I'm not really a Phoebe fan, but I did like the story line she got in this book.

In terms of illustrations, Piper looks very much like Holly Marie Combs. Paige bears enough resemblance to Rose McGowan, but I felt like Phoebe didn't always look like Alyssa Milano. Maybe Alyssa is harder to draw?

Thanks to NetGalley and Zenescope for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:
  1. You learn more about the Charmed Ones.
  2. There's a surprise appearance from a character that we haven't seen in awhile.
  3. The stories could actually work as a Charmed episode.

THE BAD:
  1. It'll leave you craving for more.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
Pretty hard to keep secrets from your wife when her sister can see the future.
READ IT IF:

  1. You are a fan of the Charmed Ones.
  2. You like paranormal graphic novels.
  3. You miss the Charmed show.
