Notes and Trivia[]

  • At the end of the book, there is a short preview of first issue Charmed Lives.
  • Some illustrations from this issue were used in issue #1 Charmed Lives.
  • The design inside the comic is made to look as if it's the Book of Shadows.
  • Paul Ruditis apologized at Comic Con for his mistake on "Year 6" (season 6). He had written that Gideon wanted to turn Wyatt evil. Actually Gideon wanted to prevent Wyatt from becoming powerful by killing him, this act lead Wyatt to become evil. This error was fixed for Volume 1.
  • The page with the spell that invokes the powers of the sisters was the one used in the Unaired Pilot.
  • The last page contains some fading words. This is not a printing error, like many buyers at first believed. Paul Ruditis wrote in Zenescope's forum that the fading words have a meaning. In fact the fading words are events in the girls' life that have not happened yet in the comics.
