Review: Charmed #1

Witchcraft since the beginning of time has been portrayed as dark magic, and its practitioners severely disfigured or geriatric.  Recently, in the past few years, the term “witch hunt”, has been thrown around, or describe any overzealous mission, but its origin in the Salem Witch Trials remains its most eponymous. Then there are the more famous witches in popular culture, the ones that whose backstory recently updated in the excellent Toil and Trouble, the witches of Macbeth. My personal favorites are the witches, of Hocus Pocus because of the way they also highlighted the mythos, in a smart and irreverent manner.

Growing up, shows Sabrina the Teenage Witch, did not capture my attention, but Bewitched did, It was not until I started watching Charmed, that I  became, enchanted. I initially started watching the show, because I had crush on Alyssa Milano, but I kept watching because it was excellent storytelling. The show made magic fun and twisted, even when Shannen Doherty and they brought on Rose McGowan, the show actually got better. After eight seasons, they were done, and although the ending was somewhat satisfying, I still held out hope for further adventures which according to recent news, will be coming back with a 70s twist.

In the meantime, their story continues, in the new series from Dynamite which finds the Halliwell Sisters in a battle with the Underworld. We find them narrowly escaping a fight with Charon and hi astral projections, who Paige vanquishes. Meanwhile, the sisters, still are trying to balance their magical world with their normal civilian lives. By issue’s end, the Halliwells are fighting a concerted effort, and the fight from the Underworld starts to seep into their normal human life.

This was fun escaping back into this world, as I got to relive all this magical world, and dip back into the Halliwell Manson. The story by Erica Schultz has all the heart, fun, and mystery that the show had. The art by Maria Sanapo is both realistic and entrancing. Overall, a great first issue and an excellent value addition to the canon.

Mighty Mouse and Charmed Return to Comics from Dynamite

Dynamite Entertainment and CBS Consumer Products have announced a new license agreement for two classic properties from the rich history of television: the animated legend Mighty Mouse, and the hit 90’s series Charmed!

Mighty Mouse returns to comics for the first time in 30 years, just in time for the character’s 75th anniversary in 2017! Mighty Mouse was first conceived in 1942 as a parody of another cape and cowl hero introduced a few years earlier, and went on to star in countless animated films for the better part of the next 20 years, finding a new life on Saturday mornings in the 1960’s.

Charmed premiered critical acclaim and commercial success, and by the end of its eight-season run, had won numerous awards and aired in more than 20 countries. Charmed follows the Halliwell sisters: three witches, each powerful in her own right, but invincible when they come together to summon The Power of Three. Protecting innocents from the underworld’s demons, the Halliwell sisters battle evil from their family home in San Francisco.

Details on Dynamite’s upcoming Mighty Mouse and Charmed publishing programs will be released in the coming months.
