BLURB: Dynamite Entertainment is proud to continue the story of Phoebe, Piper, and Paige, television's fan-favorite witches, in all-new adventures set within the official continuity of Charmed!
A dark force has set its sights on the art world of San Francisco, utilizing a gallery exhibit to feed souls to the underworld and unleash demons into our reality. Only the Power of Three, harnessed by the Halliwell sisters, can stop the madness!
My rating: 2.5 nothing new under 3P stars

Situated 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 else. 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 newspaper; and Piper trying to mantain business and sisters afloat.
Is kind of hard to fit it in the continuity of the series. The Underworld is depicted with weak demons and the Source is never mentioned. All this aside, the plot of Djall in not really bad, but it does not bring anything new. Something I was hoping to see in this type of delivery.
My biggest problem is with the art. By the way they are drawn, the sisters are indistinguishable from each other, so I often confuse them. Also, the demons and warlocks are drawn more like vampires than anything else; there are no different colors or different shapes that could be used with this medium and without having to invest much in special effects and makeup.
I like the cover with the 3 sisters inside the canvas.
