Manga Monday- Charmed: A Thousand Deaths by Erica Schultz, Maria Sanapo (Contributor)- Feature and Review


ABOUT THE BOOK:

Dynamite Entertainment is proud to continue the story of Phoebe, Piper, and Paige, television's fan-favorite witches, in all-new adventures set within the official continuity of Charmed!

A dark force has set its sights on the art world of San Francisco, utilizing a gallery exhibit to feed souls to the underworld and unleash demons into our reality. Only the Power of Three, harnessed by the Halliwell sisters, can stop the madness!


MY REVIEW:

Charmed: A Thousand DeathsCharmed: A Thousand Deaths by Erica Schultz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Charmed: A Thousand Deaths by Erica Schultz, Maria Sanapo (Illustrator) is a 2017 Dynamite Entertainment publication.

A comic based on Charmed- I couldn’t resist. I used to watch this with my daughter after school when it aired on TNT. Even after she moved on to other things, my husband and I couldn’t stop watching it. LOL!

This franchise that has stayed popular long after the original series went off the air. I knew there were books based on the show, but only recently discovered the comics.

This artwork is awesome, very bright and brilliant colors, and looks great on my Kindle. The style and atmosphere of the 90s is captured nicely,reminding me of how much fun this show was.





However, the storyline is very weak. It’s a very quick read, of course, and you will have to catch the next installment to continue the storyline, and because I was a little frustrated with this first installment, I  I immediately borrowed the next chapter to see if things improved. Although, this first chapter is quite unstable, it looks like the next installment is much improved. I will read a few more to see if it's worth continuing with it or not. 

Not the best start, but giving the series the benefit of the doubt- for now.
Plot- 2 stars
Graphic Art -4 stars
