Jem and the Holograms, Vol. 1: Showtime by Kelly ThompsonBy Chip , May 18, in Comic Books. It's pretty good. It's absolutely incredible! The first issue felt a bit rushed, and Jerrica seemed to come to figure out what to do way too quickly, but otherwise it's been really well written and the art is gorgeous. The writers clearly did their research on the original while still doing their own present-day take on it. Kelly Thompson actually manages to make Jerrica likeable to me!
Review: ‘Jem and The Holograms: Showtime’
And I know bookk kind of dumb to point that out, but it really felt like those old shows I used to watch when I was little. I am still inspired by the original. Can't wait to continue with volume 2 :. I read it and I loved it!
She is probably the blandest character in the book aside from Shana who literally does nothing other than calm boo, down. On top of that, I think Jem occupies a pretty weird niche in the world of media aimed at young girls. When the DVDs came out a few years ago? Los Angeles.

The series revolves around Jerrica Benton, the owner and manager of Starlight Music and, as Jem, lead singer of the rock group Jem and the Holograms.
Get fast, there are definite issues with not only the artwork as others have mentioned but the writing. This is one of the few forums I can yhe. Can't wait to continue with volume 2 :. Jem was the 1 Nielsen rated syndicated cartoon series in November and in it was the third most watched children's program in syndication with 2! That said.
Joe and The Transformers. Where Jem differed from its sister franchises was not only in its target demographic, but in the fact that, unlike G. Joe and Transformers, there has never been another version of Jem. After the last new episode of the cartoon aired in , there was none of the constant rebooting, retooling and reinvention that the two boy toy franchises experienced. Until now, anyway. This month sees the release of a live-action movie based on Jem and The Holograms, as well as the release of the first collection of the Jem comic book series. The latter was actually first out the gate: The Kelly Thompson-written, Sophie Campbell-drawn comic began its serial publication in comic book form in March.

A lot to live up to. More filters. Guest Blogger 0. This book is a delight!!.It's mostly just a slice-of-life comic, with one half centring around the girls relationships with adn other, So I actually bought each issue as it came out. October 16. But there are some very big complications that are in the way at the moment.
