The Charmed Offensive is the 12th issue of the Charmed comic series published by Zenescope Entertainment.


For a complete plot of The Charmed Offensive, go here.

The Charmed Ones and Leo face down impossible challenges in a battle to reclaim the Heavens, conquer the Underworld, and save the Earth. It's a fight that's been brewing since long before the prophecy of The Charmed Ones was foreseen and building since the first issue of the comic book. When this battle ends, the Charmed universe may never look the same.

To Place Paige's Soul Back into her BodyEdit

A sister split into body and soul
What was asunder must be remade whole
Let her body and spirit reunite
So the Power of Three can join the fight

Earthly goddess twisted by loss
We bind your magic,
we bind your strength,
we bind your power
Now and forever.

Powers UsedEdit


  • Cupid Bow: Coop aided the sisters in the battle against Neena by fighting with his cupid bow and weakening demons with the power of love.
  • Empyreal Sword: Leo Wyatt found this sword inside the Vault in the Upper Regions and fought with it against Neena's army of demons.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • While Patty and Penny talk to Piper about Prue, they both make up a lie, saying that she was reincarnated into someone else, a stranger. However, at the end of the issue it is revealed that Prue has gone missing and Patty asks Cole to find her daughter.
  • 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[1] 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. [2]
  • 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.
  • This is the second issue which has the word Charmed in the title.
  • 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 advanced because she used her power without a call or command.
