    1. +Digital copy gently provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review+2.5 nothing new under 3P starsSituated in the 4th season of the show, apparently after the fourth episode, because Paige is there and there is a brief mention of Cole as a lawyer and nothing more. It is a typical adventure of the witches, with a villain invested in get rid of them; Paige interested in some guy; Phoebe with struggles at the paper; and Piper trying to mantain business and sisters afloat.Is kind of hard to [...]

    2. Rating 4.5 StarsI honestly don't have anything to really get upset about when it comes to this graphic novel/comic. Charmed will always be one of my favorite shows and everyone knows its cheesy as hell (no pun intended) because the effects of the 90s and all but I still love it. I will never get tired of their sisterly quips and snarky comments.Also the big part of me even picking up a graphic novel is the artwork. If I don't like the style I won't read it. But this was a perfect comic adaptatio [...]

    3. Okay so i am not at all a Comic book /Graphic novel kind of reader. AT ALL!I still try sometimes. And i am ALWAYS disappointed. Sadly. But i LOVE Charmed. So of course when i saw a book on NetGalley about them i just had to request it. Because how bad can something with the charmed sisters be?Pretty bad apparently!Now as i said i am not an avid reader of this type of book. So maybe the problem with the very jumpy and not really streamline story telling was my personal problem. But the entire boo [...]

    4. I received an ARC from NetGalley to read and review. The below is my honest, unbiased opinion. Thank you, Erica Schultz, the publisher, and NetGalley, for allowing me to reviewARMED: A THOUSAND DEATHS is a standalone graphic novel set in the Charmed universe. Three sisters, Piper, Phoebe, and Paige, are The Charmed Ones, the world's most powerful good witches. Together, they fight evil and protect the innocent. I am a HUGE Charmed fan. I've seen the television show more times than I can count, a [...]

    5. Charmed is one of my favorite TV shows so I was excited to see this at NetGalley. I didn't even know there was a comic series based on the show but I don't read many comics these days. Sadly, this was a big disappointment. The artwork was poor, lacking definition and detail. Where the characters from the show were concerned, the resemblances were poor. Extreme facial close-ups were actually well done but other positions and angles often resulted in barely recognizable people. The story, and some [...]

    6. I was (and still am) a huge fan of Charmed. It was one of my must-see TV series back in the day. I loved watching the Charmed Ones battling demons, and trying to have somewhat normal lives in-between vanquishing evil and protecting innocents. It remains a favorite of mine, so I was excited to discover this graphic novel and couldn't wait to see what sort of trouble was brewing for sisters.The timeline of this story is set in season four of the series. Quick recap: Season three ended with the dea [...]

    7. I received this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I was excited and skeptical when I started this. I love Charmed, it was a huge part of my life growing up. I've seen episodes more times than I can remember so I was worried this was gonna let me down but it didn't. The story flows perfectly as it would in an episode and there's mentions and cameos of some of the boys in their lives. Timeline wise this would fit before everything that happened with Chris and Wyatt in the sh [...]

    8. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.When I spotted this I was just hit with a wave of nostalgia. I watched this whole series back when it aired. It was amazing, it was sad, it was hilarious, it was exciting, and I was sad when it all came to an end. So I just had to read this one and see if it was as good as the series was.Note: This book takes place after season 3 (due to the fact Paige is there).So, I just adored the story, it is just like the episodes in the se [...]

    9. I didn't end up finishing this one because it expired but I read about half of it and I wasn't interested in finishing it. I love Charmed and was so excited to read this but in the end I found myself bored and I actually forget I had picked this up more then once.

    10. 2/5 starsThe story was just okay. It was nice to see my favorite characters again as I LOVED the show. However I didn't really like the art work and the story was just alright for me.

    11. Charmed – A thousand deaths is a new comic, published by Dynamite, that brings to life the adventures of the Halliwell sisters after the end of the tenth season.This volume, however, is not the continuation of previous publications, on the contrary, it is defined as a canon one-shot story set during the fourth season of the show.As happened in many episodes of the show, Djall, a demon that wants to be important in hell, develops a plan that will allow him to separate the power of the three and [...]

    12. I enjoyed the TV show and have followed the latest seasons in comic book form, but this graphic novel was hard to enjoy.The story throws back to the time period in the story where Paige is there but Phoebe and Cole are not yet a thing (though he is mentioned in passing). That being said, the illustrator does a wonderful job of catching the '90s fashion and that was my first indication that this story didn't continue from the last comic I had read.The comic story is a stereotypical Charmed story: [...]

    13. I really enjoyed this graphic novel! I am a huge fan of Charmed (the TV show) and I had a blast being back in their universe. The novel does a great job at bringing back the feeling of watching Charmed, as the storyline is virtually identical to the ones we saw on TV. The conversations were very realistic as well. I would read a line and literally hear it in Phoebe's voice in my head. Granted, it is not a book that will rock the literary world, but I would certainly recommend it to any fan of Ch [...]

    14. Thank you to Netgalley and Diamond Book Distributors for allowing me to read this graphic novel!As someone who was really looking forward to this graphic novel because I am an avid watcher of the Charmed series, I was very disappointed in this novel. although there were some parts that were kept true to the nature of the show (the quick witted banter between sisters) it lacked the feeling of the overall show. I found myself feeling that this adaptation was just lackluster in its efforts. The art [...]

    15. Review copy provided by NetGalley.I have to admit that I don't really remember every single detail of the TV show, so I'm not sure where this story fits within the plot, but if I had to guess I would say somewhere in the first half of the fourth season from a few details that the sisters mention. Don't ask me to give you exact episodes though because I can't. I didn't know that there were Charmed comic books, so finding this one on NetGalley was a very nice surprise. It was also a plus that the [...]

    16. Remember watching Charmed on tv? I always looked forward to seeing the next episode. The three sisters are powerful witches especially when they "work" together. Demons from the place known as hell are afraid of them so stay there even though they rather notmons want to gather human souls so they can be out and about doing their "thing." One demon has figured out a way to get human souls for himself and his fellow demons. He also wants to get rid of the Charmed witches. Will he be able to do it? [...]

    17. I was so excited when I discovered Dynamite had bought the rights to Charmed. I love Dynamite. But I was a little disappointed when I realised it was a reimaging and that it wasn’t a carry-on from the Zenescope comics∗ that where season 9 and 10, carrying on from the TV show (8 seasons aired between 1998-2006). ∗Season 9, 2010–2012, Issues: 24 & Season 10, 2014–2016, Issues:20.Nevertheless I call myself a Charmed fan so I was determined to love Dynamite’s take on my favourite sis [...]

    18. I used to watch Charmed since I was a child, so when I saw that there was a graphic novel for the tv show, I had to pick it up.The storyline seems to be what a typical episode features, which included the right doses of danger, sassiness, and the power of 3. So, I was happy with that aspect.I didn't like the illustrations at all. I had a difficult time distinguishing who is who through out the entire comic. This was a huge turn off for me.Now, I did say that the story had the correct dose of sas [...]

    19. I'm a huge Charmed fan and understandably I couldn't wait to read something new about my three favorite witches. While the story was interesting to read, I had problems with the art work. It was hard to recognize Phoebe, Paige and Piper and that made it difficult to keep tabs on who was where and said what. It took me double the amount of time to get through the book then it would have otherwise. I think hardcore Charmed fans will like the book though. I chose to read this book and all opinions [...]

    20. I was a big fan of the tv series Charmed. When I saw this comic strip based on the show and characters, I got super excited. Unfortunately, I was never a big fan of comics and was not really captivated by the stories. I am not sure if a comics fan would feel more comfortable with this way of presenting the story. All I know is that it wasn't for me. I couldn't get into the story. And personally, the 3 sisters were drawn so similarly in some scenes that I couldn't tell them appart and it created [...]

    21. As a fan of the Charmed television show, I greatly enjoyed this book. The artist did a wonderful job representing the characters featured in the program, and as well as creating panels that look like they were pulled directly from an episode of the series. There is also a creative and interesting story presented here. I am glad I encountered this title, and would recommend it for fans and those who are new to this universe of characters.

    22. Although I love charmed the TV show I knew this wasn't that and couldn't expect much. The graphics weren't as I expected and the dialogue was hard to follow at times. The story line was good but a few times I wasn't expecting one of the sisters to act the way the author wrote. As a fan I could notice more flaws within the novel and within the characters. This book wasn't the best representation but it was nice to have a new story about the sisters.

    23. I read from another review that the story is very good, but the constant change of the characters appearance is very off putting. And I really agree. I loved the show and I was really hoping to find another way to rejoin the Charmed universe. This isn't bad, but I'm much more excited about reading the series Season 9 than I would be to read this.

    24. I loved Charmed as a child and still watch it today so I was really looking forward to reading this comic.Unfortunately, the characters don't really look like they do in the TV series and the timeline seemed rather off at times (Paige working as a whitelighter in season 4, for example).But it was still a nice throwback and the storyline was interesting enough.

    25. This was a great read I love charmed and all things charmed so when I found out they were doing more of these of course I had to read them.

    26. Talk about nostalgia! Loved it, made me want to re-watch the Charmed series. Found this comic book series and straight up fan-girled. Can't wait to read the next 3 volumes and issues 6-19!

    27. Not accessible to new readers not already familiar with the property. I just wanted a fun witch story!
