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.
Dark Jem is the third collection of the IDW Jem and the Holograms series and it, like every volume, deserves a space on your bookshelf. If you are not reading Jem and the Holograms, then you are truly missing out on a comic that transcends its origins as a nostalgic adaptation of an 80's cartoon.
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.
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.
Sorry for the lack recently of an Artist Of The Week feature, but it's back and this week with the fantastic artist of Jem & The Holograms, Sophie Campbell!
After my review of the first issue, I was really eager to read the second issue of Jem and the Holograms. What's best is that not only wasn't I disappointed, I enjoyed it better than the first, and there's not many comic book series that I can say that about. I'm just really happy that this comic exists.
IDW has had a lot of press behind the launch of their new Jem & the Holograms series, so it seems only right to give it a read and tell you about it. I was personally looking forward to it given that I'm prone to like old ideas given a new spin, and for the most part it works. I'm going to give you a spoiler alert, but I'll still try not to ruin it for anyone.
IDW has released a press release concerning a new Jem and The Holograms comic series. I am sure many of you (including myself) caught an episode or two back in the 80's so these gals need no introduction. Read on for the press release and lets get ready to get outrageous!
