A wise bird once said, “you can’t touch music, but it can touch you.” That’s sort of the theme for the Holograms, but even more so thanks to dark Jem.
Th Misfits, and their new lead singer Blaze, have put on a show. Too bad they’ve got a tough crowd who happen to be affected by Dark Jem and the Holograms. Its creepy and totally throws the Misfits off guard. Meanwhile, the Holograms have their own problems to deal with in the form of betrayal and bad attitudes. After a few intense moments, Jerrica’s “spell” starts to crack, but will it be enough? And what about poor Synergy?
A glimpse into the life of Phyllis Gabor is a sad and lonely one. She is definitely looking more like Phyllis and less like Pizzazz. Blaze taking her position (for who knows how long) doesn’t help either. I do like Blaze, but we all know who the real leader is! I love all of these characters and their awesome personalities. Even when she’s not herself, Aja is still able to retain that feisty attitude and mean right swing. As cool as the Dark Holograms looked, they gotta go.
I am kind of glad Rio was brought back. He was useful, as much as he was the last time he had to help Jerrica kidnap her sisters. Is there a pattern here?
All jokes aside, Kelly Thompson is doing a pretty good job wrapping up story arcs. Even when it feels like it’s coming to a close too soon, you have to remember all the loose ends that still need to be tied up.
I’ll never get tired of Sophie Campbell’s art along with M. Victoria Robado’s colors. Everything pops out, and the colors are so vibrant in every panel. Sophie Campbell has kept her characters from looking the same, and I really appreciate that. Jem and the Holograms is a really good book. for everyone. The visuals and story really get to you.
