Pat Shand's Tumblr answers #2

Yesterday Pat asked his followers to send him questions on Tumblr about his work:

  • Anonymous asked: What can we expect from Prue in Charmed?
  • PS: Without spoiling, you can expect her to be as central to the story as the other three sisters. I saw someone comment that because I said she’s a “regular” means that I have to write her in every issue. Not the case. I could do a one-shot where only the hubbies appear, and I actually am planning an either one or two issue storyline where the only lead is Phoebe. However, that said, the season as a whole, in a way, balances on the mystery of Prue and what she has become. X
  • Anonymous asked: Hi! can we hope a spin off series centered around Prue and Cole or some others characters of Charmed like Buffy and Angel/Faith comics? thanks!
  • PS: Nope. Prue/Cole are a vital but, at times, separate part of what’s going on with the other characters. They’re far, far too interconnected in their arcs for separating the series to make sense. X

* (Pat has mentioned on Twitter that Prue and Cole are main characters in S10 X)

  • Anonymous asked: Prue is the only sister for which you're totally freedom about character progression since her future was never revealed. How does it feel? is it cool or is it a bigger pression since her return was hoped long ago and that now that she's back the whole character destiny is in your hands?
  • PS: I used to feel pressure, but honestly, after writing the first couple of issues, it’s lessened. You guys have also been super welcoming, which has helped with my anxiety over taking the reigns on Charmed.

    However, what we say in Forever Charmed regarding the futures of the characters is both limiting and challenging. The limits it has placed are obvious, but the challenges are interesting. It’s “How can I get character from A to B in a surprising, dynamic way?” The thing about magic, too, is that I can definitely play with the outcome of Forever Charmed in sneaky, horrible ways. But we’ll see about that. I don’t know if Zenescope wants to do a Season Eleven, so I want to stay away from teasing their future fates too too much.

    Regarding Prue, it’s cool as heck. X

  • Anonymous asked: Hello! thanks to let us ask you some questions and sorry for my english, i'm french :) In charmed can we hope for a reunion between Prue and Victor because in season 9 it was stated that Victor wasn't aware that Prue was back and alive and their relationship was pretty interesting and complex :) I don't know if you'll answer but just be sure how grateful we're, us charmed fans, of your implication in doing this comics, you're amazing with us fans, so thanks ;)
  • PS: Thanks! I don’t want to say no about Victor, but I also don’t have any plans yet. Prue is living sort of in the middle of nowhere, and she’s confined there, so I’m going to be very selective with her visitors for a reason that won’t really come to light until later in the series. X
  • Anonymous asked: So, what powers does Prue have now?
  • PS: Gnarly ones. X

* (Pat has mentioned on Twitter that Prue will have new powers in S10 X)

  • Anonymous asked: Hi Pat, huge charmed fan here. My question is "we have yet to see the channeling side of Phoebe's empathy power in the comics, has it been retconned, should we no longer think of it as a aspect of her power"?
  • PS: Nah, it hasn’t been retconned. It’s just — and this is me speaking for myself as a writer, Paul might have a different opinion — that it’s such a huge power that can be used to make a plot more convenient, and that’s not dramatically interesting. Especially for the grounded story I’m building with these characters. But the more magic-driven answer, I suppose, can be that sometimes the specific parts of their power sets increase and decrease over time? You guys can feel free to fanwank that, but unless something comes up that makes her channeling enhance a scene, I’m probably not going to get into that part of her powers. X

UPDATE- Pat answered some more Qs:

  • Anonymous asked: Hello Pat, regarding the Season 10 comics of Charmed, are there any plans or storylines for the kids of the Charmed Ones?
  • PS: While I’m still figuring stuff out, the kids will certainly be minor characters. One of them features heavily in a Phoebe story I have planned, but the season is squarely focused on the sisters, their husbands, Cole, and a few other people I’m not gonna talk about yet. X
  • Anonymous asked: Hi Pat, do have any plans to explore Empaths? The reason I ask is because we know so little about them. BTW, looking forward to your run on Charmed.
  • PS: No plans at the moment. X
  • Anonymous asked: Hi Pat, can we expect more (new) characters from season 1-8 returning in Charmed season 10?
  • PS: I think I answered this question a few times before, but yes. X

Panel Preview - Cole

Paul Ruditis shared a preview of Cole in Season 10:

Charmed 1 Digital



For those wondering, Panini hasn't revealed a release date for Charmed 2 yet (even though they have their previews and release dates for August-October up). i asked them about it and they said they'll "keep us in the loop".

First Charmed S10 #1 Preview Page

Pat Shand posted a preview page from Charmed Season 10 #1:

  • Here’s a page from CHARMED: SEASON TEN #1. Elisa and Valentina are a match made in comic booky heaven, so it was hard to pick what page to use. I just really dig Henry’s eyeroll in the last panel, so boom. Here you go! X

Elisa Feliz's Charmed S10 news post

Elisa updated her DeviantART journal with the news that she is the new penciller for Charmed:

  • I've been keeping this quiet for over a year and I can finally share the big news with you guys. I've been chosen as the new penciller for "CHARMED", Published by Zenescope Entertainment and CBS!
    CHARMED: SEASON TEN #1: No Country for Old Ones is written by Pat Shand, colored by Valentina Cuomo, lettered by Jim Campbell, and edited by Paul Ruditis.
  • Ever since they came to me with this offer I had been doing some samples for them and it's been a lot of fun. Charmed was one of the shows that my brother and I used to watch together everyday when we were teenagers, so I'm very excited about this opportunity. Never thought I'd get this far. X

4 years Charmed Comics

Charmed Season 9 started 4 years ago today with Charmed #1!

Pat tweeted the title for #3:

  • Welp, I'm done with the first draft of # #2. It's been sent off! So in celebration of that, here's the title of #3... X
  • "The Perks of Being a Whitelighter." X
  • I'll tell y'all most titles in advance. Except for #5. Not even putting that one in the solicit. It would spoil #4 for the attentive reader. X
  • And you guys are a pretty dang attentive bunch. X

Cropped Preview

Pat made a post for Charmed Season 10 #1 and its cover on Tumblr and you can read it here:

  • This has been circulating around, so I figure there’s no harm in finally officially sharing it. 
  • Here’s the first wonderful cover to CHARMED: SEASON TEN. It’s by David Seidman, who will do a cover for every issue this season if he doesn’t want me to cry.
  • CHARMED: SEASON TEN #1: No Country for Old Ones is written by me, drawn by Elisa Feliz, colored by Valentina Cuomo, lettered by Jim Campbell, and edited by Paul Ruditis.

Pat tagged #Cthulhu in the post. Interesting!


On Twitter he shared a small cropped preview of Phoebe's long hair and also tweeted about Prue's appearence:

  • And don't worry about it, guys. Phoebe has long hair this season. PROOF: (X)

Pat answers S10 questions from the fans on Twitter

Below i have collected all the questions Pat answered yesterday on Twitter:


@tbell0116will we see more of future Wyatt and Chris?

@PatShandNo sir.

@paulruditisNow, now. Never say never.

@PatShand I didn't ;)

@tbell0116lol ok how about more of Patience/Prue.

@PatShand All four sisters are the leads of the series.


@EnemyOfFate I'm from the underworld but I really want to read the comics, any plans on going online/international? 

I'm next to positive we'll be on Comixology.


Any plot hints whatsoever? BTW so excited to see what happens, you seem awesome.

If I were a villain, I'd wonder why the Halliwell line constantly evades death, even after they die. And I'd fix that.


Can we expect to see new powers this season, from the sisters or others?

Others, yes. The sisters? Eh. They'll use their existing powers in interesting and innovative ways.

I was SHOCKED I got approval on something that Paige orbs in #1. I did a little dance after that happened. knows.


which issue/issues are you writing now?

#2 & #4 kind of simultaneously. Deadline for #2 is far off so I'm writing what feels natural, popping here & there.


will we get to see the kids in this season?



Will we get to see at least one returning guest star from the TV show who wasn't in Season 9?

Ohhhh yeah.


Will we get to see at least one guest star who was new in season nine returning in season ten?

Hmmmm. Probably maybe.


Is there any chance of special issues (holiday themed, extra long, annuals) similar to what is done with GFT?

Chance, yes, but there are no plans. Yet.


Are there any pencilers and/or colorists that might be returning to work on a season ten?

No, the art team will be entirely new.


Will and be continuing their work on the with the new season?

For sure, they're staples!


Okay slightly more spoilerish. Will we get to see Victor and Sam (in general, but mostly) interact in season ten?

No plans. The core cast is already so expansive, you know? But who knows, if it comes up organically maybe.


is season 10 going to be more demon oriented or more family oriented? Really hoping for phoebes family to grow.

Those aren't mutually exclusive things. There will certainly not be more additions to their already expansive household though.

Rose McGowan talks about the Charmed comics

Rose McGowan was at Supanova Pop Culture Expo this weekend and during a panel she answered a question from Isabella on what she thinks about the Charmed comic book:

  • RoseMcGowan: I think it’s great that they lived on, I love it and that people were interested in them. It’s funny seeing yourself in different storylines that you weren’t participant in, I think it’s a great character and I love that they continue, like with the books and the comic and whatever people do. I think it's great we gave birth to something that keeps going.

Thanks to Vonelada for sharing. You can find the quote at the following link: My-Safety-Zone.Tumblr

Charmed S10 to have a darker feel

Pat Shand was a guest in Ep. 23 of The CAC Show Podcast. Here is what he shared about S10:


Writing licensed characters:

  • PatShand: "Angel* was my first story ever published through IDW. It was only a short story. Angel was my favorite show ever pretty much. I’m a big Buffy/Angel Joss Whedon fan so when IDW gave me the opportunity to write those characters it was a dream come true for me and it was my first ever comic book experience. It’s like starting my career in the industry of with my dream come true."
  • TheCACShow: "So that pretty much launched your career."
  • PatShand: "Yeah. Angel is not a small book. Buffy and Angel and even Joss Whedon’s Serenity comics they sell a lot, they are big so it was super nice of the company to give me the chance to write these characters. It actually led to more things for me because it was a good stepping stone. But now that Zenescope is launching their new season of Charmed through CBS I had experience writing licensed characters through Angel so they offered me the chance to write Season 10 of Charmed which is what I’m now doing so it’s sort of a gift that keeps on giving for me."

Season 10 going darker:

  • TheCACShow: "So you are going to join the Charmed series?"
  • PatShand: "Correct yes I am the full writer on Charmed Season 10."
  • TheCACShow: "Can you give any spoilers out?"
  • PatShand: "Maybe not spoilers but the fans of Charmed are so vocal on twitter, they ask me so many questions. I have revealed a lot. Folks can see what I’m saying on Twitter and Tumblr. But I’ll say here that the story is going to be focusing more on demons than we have in recent Charmed seasons TV. The final seasons on Charmed got very light and more towards the fairytale kind of aspect but I want to bring it back to more the… I want it to be a bit darker; I want to mash the Season 3/Season 4 feel when you had Cole who was this really shady demon character who you never really knew if he was on the Charmed Ones’ side or not so I want to get back more to the feel that there’s actually danger awaiting these characters and that there are stakes. I am loving writing Charmed. The characters are so loved by fans that it’s just this big pressure on me but as soon as I write their voices come out of me cause I was a fan growing up too."

The duration of the Season:

  • PatShand: "We are relaunching and starting a new number 1 called Charmed Season 10 #1 and that will go from October this year for a couple of years going forward."

The (translated) summary of Vol. 1 is a slightly altered version of the English Vol. 1 summary :

  • Hear now the words of the witches...
    An ancient spell unlocked the power of the Charmed Ones, three magical witches - sisters with the task to protect the innocent. Over the years the descendants of Melinda Warren fought through joy and sorrow, love and pain and battled the forces of evil for eight years until they could win the ultimate battle and live happily ever after. Or was that just the beginning of the story ...?
    It's been a year and a half since Piper, Phoebe and Paige were victorious against evil. They've put the past behind them and settled into their relatively quiet lives with their families. But the death of the first innocent that the Charmed Ones ever saved awakens an ancient evil that is stronger than anything the sisters have ever faced. The new threat forces the Charmed Ones to a new struggle that even the fabric of their time line and the fate of the world could change.

FedCon is on May 29 - June 1. Is anyone going? Are you planning to get your copy signed by Holly & Shannen?

Pat answers ten S10 Questions from the Fans

Pat answered the S10 questions fans sent him on twitter in a post in his personal Tumblr blog PatrickShand.Tumblr:


"Today, just for funsies, I tweeted that I’d post a blog answering the first ten CHARMED questions that fans send to me. Let’s see what folks are wondering about Season Ten…
(Also, counting is hard, so I’ll just answer all of ‘em.)
@Jan_van_Es Will we see Billie again?
There are no plans for Billie in Season Ten. We already have SUCH an expansive cast, and Season Eight dealt with her character so in depth that I didn’t really feel a burning urge to include her. However, now I’m imagining a spinoff where she has wacky, nerdy neighbors. I think that’d be a goodun.
@Kostaszomgas Will there be an Issue #0 (like in S9) before Charmed S10?
No sir. We’re coming out guns a’blazing in #1. 
@phoenix_force1 will we see the sisters utilizing their powers in more creative ways ?
Creative ways, sure, but I don’t want to say “more creative ways.” The previous writers, especially Paul last season, showcased the sisters using their magic in really cool ways. What I don’t want to get into, though, is the sisters getting more and more powerful. Watching their power sets develop has been a great aspect of Charmed, but what I love is that every time they get a new power, there is a new limit or a new danger — it prevents them from getting so powerful that there is never really a threat. So the answer is kind of a sly… yes, probably, but with down sides too.
@NathanJenkins4 introd new characters, settings, powers etc Wat of s9 r u most lukin 4ward 2 takin further in the new season? #CharmedSeason10 Season Ten is going to be a little more grounded, with a focus on the character’s relationships and the role of death and resurrection in their lives and in the world of magic. There will also be a heavy focus on demons. Also, this is the first time I’ve said this to anyone, including Paul… but the Demonic Wasteland will be a major, major location and plot point this season. 
@Phoebe1_ Will we have any interactions between Phoebe and Cole? <3 #CharmedSeason10 Emphatically yes. Especially in the first five issues. And then, following those issues, something that happens between them will cast a shadow over the rest of the season.
@Kostaszomgas How far are you into writing the season
#1-7 are heavily outlined with some dialogue, to the point where it’ll take a few days to script each issue. #1 is completely broken down and just needs dialogue and a bunch of revisions. Following that, the rest of the season is loosely mapped out. I know the major arc, but I don’t want to marry myself to a structure this early on, as it’s been fun exploring these characters. I want to allow myself to ability to let them dictate how they get to the end I envision.
@EnemyOfFate What can we expect on the Prue/Patience department? #CharmedSeason10 Separation anxiety. Tattoos. Badassery. Introspection. Pajama dances.
@josephjaymes21 Whose your favorite character?
I’ll say after I’ve convinced everyone that I’m unbiased enough to be able to effectively write this season. So in like 2016.
@NathanJenkins4 Ignore this if we’re only allowed one question What do Piper fans have to look forward to this season? :) #CharmedSeason10 Confidence. Business. Leadership. Nurturing. Growth. Questioning.
@CharmedSweden Will Phoebe have her third child in season 10? #CharmedComic Who am I, Danny Tanner? I’m not adding any more kids to that house.
@CharmedSweden How many big story arcs Will the season have? (Different demons, stories, family stuff) like in Season 9 there were 2 big
I’m mimicking the structure of the seasons that I feel worked best. A lot of seemingly standalone episodes that culminate in a season-long story arc. While all that is going on, I’ll be juggling character arcs and some pretty gnarly subplots.
@paulruditis You planning on sending me a script anytime soon?
I figure we need to let the fans wait a few months more, so I thought I’d delay it. Teheehhee. Friday, methinks."

Ask Pat Shand a Charmed S10 question (completed)

Pat Shand:

  • The first ten questions tweeted to me will be answered on my Tumblr tonight. And... go.

You can find Pat on Twitter at @PatShand


Update - Pat Shand:

  • Great questions. I'll answer them all. I'll take one more before cut off.

Update - Pat Shand:

Leprechauns return, the duration of S10 & Shannen Doherty's likeness

ComicFrontline had a Zenescope LIVE E-Panel yesterday. Pat Shand answered some Charmed related questions in it.


Leprechauns will return:

  • "There are leprechauns in Charmed Season 10 #3 so if any Charmed fans are watching this and I'm sure you guys are because you are ravenously consuming details about the series then there are leprechauns in an issue called Magically Malicious."

On if there is going to be a crossover between Charmed and Zenescope's Grimm Fairy Tales:

  • "It’s definitely going to stay in its own universe. There is no chance for a crossover whatsoever there. We are lucky enough to get even season 10. Season 9 lasted 24 issues which is longer than any of our books besides Grimm itself and Wonderland so to be able to do Season 10 for at least 24 more issues is… we’re stoked to be able to do that. So i think that's probably as far as we're going to go with Charmed for now."

On how overwhelming writing for Charmed that has a big following is:

  • "I was very prepared for it. I got the gig to write Charmed before I even got the gig to write Robyn Hood. It’s been in the works for 2 and a half years. Paul Ruditis who actually wrote Season 9 and is editing Season 10 with me told me what to be prepared for, you know, when to get the bulletproof vest out and stuff. I’ve been very prepared for it. It’s just kind of awesome to see how much people care that the very day I’m announced someone’s like: “Are we getting Prue and Cole together, are we?" It’s like "Season 10 is happening, yay!" It's like "I want this now, give it to me". That intensity is just so awesome, that people care that much that I’ll be writing something that people will hear through and then write a wiki about is just fascinating and I love it so I'm so ready."

On if there is a legal reason why Zenescope did not use Shannen's likeness for Prue:

  • "There could not be a bigger legal reason than there is. It’s never going to happen. We just can’t do it."
  • "It’s very cool to have the drama of their sister being in a very different body, looks nothing like her, they have to deal with the idea that this is their sister even though it looks like nothing like her... But, however, if we could get her in Shannen Doherty’s body I’d be down with that issue 1 but if we publish this series until I die it would still never happen."
