Notes and Trivia

- Leo somehow becomes a magical being, however, not much is revealed about what he really is.
- Paige's appearance in Cover A bares a striking resemblance to the outfit Phoebe wore as a superheroine in the Season 5 episode, Witches in Tights.
- Paige's appearance on Cover B is based on two Season 8 photoshoots, although, in Cover A, her appearance is based on a Season 6 photoshoot.
- The Heavens are featured in the background of Cover A. In this issue, The Charmed Ones fought Neena Up There. This marks the second time for Phoebe and the fifth time for Piper in the Heavens. It is unknown how many times Paige has been to the Heavens since "Forever Charmed" as in "The Heir Up There", Paige comments that things have changed since Leo's time as an Elder.
- Cover B of this issue has the same style as the previous issue Last Witch Effort. Also, Cover B in the previous one only featured Phoebe. This one here features only Paige, and next issue Cover B will only feature Piper.
- Phoebe's position, appearance and hair bares a striking resemblance to that of Faith Lehane in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8, Safe. The background also has some similarities.
- The title, "The Charmed Offensive", is a reference to the saying the Charm Offensive, meaning a publicity campaign used by politicians to attract supporters by emphasizing charisma and trustworthiness.
- If the eyes shown on Last Witch Effort are Neena's, then, this will be the second issue to feature a part of her on the main cover.
- Phoebe and Piper hold The Sphaera of Light and Dark.
- A special limited edition cover is based on an episode still from Witches in Tights.

- Penny uses Telekinesis for the first time in the comics and this is her third appearance.
- This is the first time Melinda Warren shows her telekinetic powers to the sisters.
- Phoebe's Empathy power was revealed to be truly powerful. While she couldn't vanquish Neena with her power, she was still able to incapacitate her long enough for her and her sisters to cast a spell.
- Coop used his Cupid Bow to shoot demons with arrows of Love, weaken them. This was the first time since Prue vanquished Vinceres in "Primrose Empath", that emotions were used directly against a demon.
- Paige's Telekinetic Orbing seems to have advanced because she used her power without a call or command.
