It seems like I've been away from Jem and the Holograms for a long time. I was hooked early on, and if you haven't been keeping up, just click on the tag for this title at the top of the page for previews of the issues I've reviewed. The series has been exceptional, and that's coming from a guy that's never been a fan of the animated series from the 1980s.

There have been numerous comics and books that have come across my virtual desk in the past couple of months. Some have really impressed me, but time has just gotten away from me and any review wouldn’t be timely at this point. I need to get back in the habit of reviewing things other than old
We simply haven't been giving enough previews here of comics, but with Troy Little's adaptation of Hunter Thompson's Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas in a new format, I had to share some of it with you before it passed us by completely. Troy Little does a great job of adapting one of the best known books and making it feel fresh. Check out the preview and then go find the entire series if you like it!
My Little Pony is one of those properties that has captured the imagination of an entire generation. The comic book series from IDW helps feed the need fans of the television series and toys have for new content. It also helps that it maintains the feel of the television series. This Tuesday sees the twenty-fifth issue of My Little Pony Friends Forever featuring a great Rainbow Dash story. The truest test for this series is showing it to a three year old on the computer. If she asks why they aren't talking, then the creators have nailed the same feeling that the television series has. I showed this to a three-year old girl and that was the first question she asked. Mission accomplished. Way to go, Barbara Kesel and Brenda Hickey, you nailed the comic book for one of her favorite television shows.
We have a Jem and the Holograms 10 Preview provided for us by IDW. This has been a series easy to fall in love with great characters and a balance between the music-themed drama and the personal relationships of the characters. One character that hasn't been developed too much has been Rio. Well, this week, we get a look at Jem and the Holograms from his perspective. You might get the sense that you should check out this series seeing how it was nominated for best new series and best series in our end of the year awards and co-creator Sophie Campbell won Best Artist. Check out the preview below, then pop over to your local comic shop on Wednesday to buy the full issue.
The Jem and the Holograms Holiday Special is a pleasant addition to holiday themed comics. Jem and the Holograms has been one of those series that makes comics, especially licensed comics, fun to read and something to tell friends that they have to read. It's also one of those series that you want to make certain your daughters read. So let's dive into the Holiday Special and see what it has in store for us.
ROM the Spaceknight is returning to comics. We've known this for a little while, but had no clue precisely as to when. Now, IDW and Hasbro have announced that ROM returns on Free Comic Book Day 2016.
IDW has posted a Press Release announcing their impressive plan to bring love to all fans. Coming in February will be special IDW Valentines Day cover variants. Look for GI Joe, Back to the Future, Jem and more! Here's all of the affected titles.
Danger Girl is one of those series that helped define creator-driven comics in the late 1990s. J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell set out to tell a better spy story than had been done with comics ever.
I chose to give Ragnarok #6 a read due to the reputation of Walt Simonson's run on Thor. Not certain of what to find in his telling of the Norse pantheon after all the Norse Gods are killed, I went in fresh. Does it measure up to that legendary work? What did I find? Well if you tuned in to see if this is one of those masterpieces by a legendary creator, keep reading. I won't spoil everything more than the rating already has done.
I've been enjoying the mess out of Jem and the Holograms. Even if it wasn't a licensed property, I'd be buying it. Sophie Campbell's artwork is so gorgeous that every character is beautiful, even when they're being absolute monsters. Kelly Thompson is writing an absolutely wonderful story about two bands at war, yet is managing to work in a great love story or two. The blending of these two creators is so perfect, I worry about the recent solicitations without Sophie Campbell on the book, but from artist's Emma Vieceli's blog, it looks like just a guest spot. Whew! I was worried there for a second.
