Mini review time! I liked the art of this one a lot better, though it still doesn't seem to be consistent. I'm focusing more on the stories rather than the art (although I still have trouble telling a few of the men apart depending on the angle they're drawn). I was sad that the show ended because it was one of my favorites, but I love being able to come back to it like this. I love how the story of the sisters is advancing. They still have to deal with magic, of course, but I'm really enjoying reading how they're dealing with life stuff as well. I also think the comics allow for the stories to branch out more than they were able to in the show. I'm loving the details on Henry and Coop. I liked them in the show but they weren't given as much screen time in the show as Leo was. I'm glad I get to read about them now.

I'm definitely going to continue reading the comics until I've read all the published pieces! I'm continuing to recommend it for fans of Charmed.

Impressed how well I could picture this being the actual television show. It made me quite nostalgic. I'm a bit upset this couldn't have been apart of the show because that cliff hanger ending was WOW.

Loved it even more this re-read. Neena is by far my favourite Charmed villain and this volume really makes me understand her as a character and a villain.

The artwork is pretty inconsistent as there are around 3-4 artists covering the 7 issues of this arc but all of the character likenesses were recognisable for the most part and each artist brought their own unique take on what Charmed could look like.

The plot was brilliant and took the Charmed mythos to new heights while bringing back old faces fans will appreciate. The sisters once again had their own personal stories that ran alongside the overarching plot that really showcase who the Charmed Ones are.

If I was to criticise anything it would be the dialogue again. Sometimes it can be a bit stilted but for the most part I can hear each character's voice.

THAT CLIFFHANGER THOUGH. The first time I read those frames I was gagged.

I enjoyed the storyline of this volume much more than the first, and the story really started to take off including in some unexpected directions. Unfortunately, while the story was on point, the art was a MESS. Some layouts were confusing or hard to follow, and the art changed completely in every issue, going from realistic to cartoonish to making the sisters look almost skeletal at one point. I really wish they'd settle on a single artist instead of hiring a new one for every issue.
