Zenescope Brings Charmed To Comics!

Zenescope Entertainment has announced they have obtained the comic book and graphic novel publishing rights to CHARMED.

Zenescope Entertainment has officially announced they have obtained the comic book and graphic novel publishing rights to the  television property CHARMED (1998-2006) created by Constance M. Burge from Spelling Entertainment, under license from CBS Consumer Products. 
The comic book publisher, known for beautiful, sultry and strong female characters, has now added three more to the mix.  The ultra-popular CHARMED television series aired for eight seasons on The WB network and averaged more than 4 million viewers throughout its run. 

Zenescope’s comic book series
will feature a brand new storyline which picks up where the television
series left off.  The story follows the Halliwell sisters, a beautiful
trio  descended from a line of powerful but good witches, as they battle against evil beings in modern day San Francisco.

Attached to write the new comic book series is author Paul Ruditis, who has written several Charmed novels such as Leo Rising (with Constance M. Burge) and As Puck Would Have It. 
Co-writing with Ruditis will be Raven Gregory, writer of the acclaimed
Wonderland trilogy published by Zenescope.  Renowned artist Dave Hoover (Captain America, The Wanderers) will be providing interior illustrations for the series.

"The key to this series success is to strike a nice balance in creating
a brand new, intriguing storyline for fans of the television show while
also not alienating Zenescope and comic book readers
who haven’t really followed it before but might want to now that it’s a
comic," said Zenescope Editor-in-Chief Ralph Tedesco. "The great thing
is that Paul and Raven have done just that with this story arc. 
Anybody will be able to pick up this series and follow it whether or
not they ever watched the show before.  Moreover, fans of the show are
going to be thrilled when they see where this story goes."

Issue #0 is scheduled for a June release with issue #1 to debut at Comic Con International in San Diego this July.
