    Jem And The Holograms continues to be a series that should grace your pull-lists and pre-orders. We have some great creators at the helm that do these characters justice and modernize a story that lit many of our eyes up, whether we saw it in the 80s or re-discovered it on Netflix. Issue #10 is a solid story that is setting up some interesting relationships moving forward, so definitely keep your eyes peeled for the next great installment of this series. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Emma Houxbois Dec 30, 2015

    All in all, it's great to see such a strong bounceback for the title with an issue that plays to Thompson's natural strengths and reasserts just what makes this title so successful. The only real weakness the series has suffered is the meandering pace, which will hopefully sort itself out as Jem enters into its second year. Read Full Review

    "Jem and the Holograms" #10 is another victory for a series that is far more enjoyable than one might have ever thought. Thompson and Howell work well together, and I'd definitely keep Howell on the list of good guest artist options. What could have been a one-off or a diversion is instead a lot of fun and continues to move the book forward as we see the Misfits come together in the face of tragedy. The only thing that's truly outrageous here is that we have to wait another month until the next issue. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Amani Cooper Dec 31, 2015

    The art of this book is very stylistic. You can't hate it, but you also don't love it. Rio is no longer the pretty boy he was before. Roxy' jawline is more chiseled than it used to be. I have nothing against a woman who isn't traditionally feminine, but she usually was. Also, everyone looked a bit similar. Same general face throughout the book with a few minor differences. I did like the monochromatic flashbacks. It wasn't anything fancy, but it fit well. I do long for a consistent artist on the book, but I'll have to wait and see. Read Full Review

    With nearly a year of issues under its belt, Jem is now looking to be a safe bet as an entertaining and trustworthy monthly read. It rarely disappoints and with the ‘Dark Jem' story arc promised next issue looks set to take the book into new territory and keep defying your expectations of what this book can be. It has all of the essential ingredients to be a cult-hit but I'd imagine with it being so consistently good it will instead gather a legion of dedicated fans. Read Full Review

    This is a more somber issue, though there are still doses of humor, cute, and glam, mostly in the flashbacks to interviews with the Misfits. Unfortunately, the guest artist, Corin Howell isn't quite up to the challenge of drawing emotional nuance on the characters' faces. The same look of concern frequents each close-up. In the example below, the movement in of each panel fails to offer much other than more space for his interior monologue. Read Full Review
