Jem & the Holograms: Showtime

Finished Jem & the Holograms: Showtime by Kelly Thompson.  I received a copy from the publisher for review.

Summary (from Goodreads):

Meet Jerrica Benton – a girl with a secret. She and her sister Kimber team with two friends to become… JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS! But what does it mean to be JEM today? Fashion, art, action, and style collide in Jem and the Holograms: Showtime!

I am an 80s girl and so it’s probably not that surprising that I was a huge Jem fan when I was little.  I’m even interested in seeing the movie—kind of—even though the Misfits won’t be in it.  So when I found out that there was a new series of comics about them (WITH the Misfits!)…yes please!

Comics/graphic novels have been really hit or miss for me, but this was an absolute delight. (I think this would count as comics, right? This is an omnibus of the first few issues, and it’s incredibly fun.

The band is already together, but as it opens, we learn that Jerrica has really bad stage fright.  And, of course, shortly thereafter we get to meet Synergy which leads to us meeting Jem.

This is an updated version but it’s still very recognizable to fans of the original.  (And as an added bonus, I think it’ll be really popular and get new fans, too.)

I hope to keep reading this series.
