Truly outrageous! JERRICA BENTON is JEM-but does she have what it takes to lead her underdog band against the mega-popular MISFITS?

    Needless Essentials Online - Stan Ford Apr 29, 2015

    This is definitely a comic aimed at female readers, and younger ones specifically, but that doesn't make it fun for any fan of good comics to read. If you could have any problem with it, it's that your tastes are just to more conventional comic book stories, aimed at a more masculine audience, but you could do far worse than spend a few bucks giving this series a chance.

    This issue does a good job and bascially doing what it must. It is still growing into its space a little bit, as the sometimes disjointed conversation alludes to, but most of all this is an overall treat which doesn't let up. The art is a treat and while the battle of the bands story might seem a bit obvious, so too do the Holograms need some kind of antagonist in their journey to pop stardom. They have found it in the Misfits, and the series is better off for it, as it seems to be progressing and developing in a natural manner. Read Full Review

    The creative team does another stellar job with "Jem and the Holograms" #2. This is shaping up to be one of the brightest, most beautiful books on the shelves, and it's such a treat to read. I'm already smiling thinking about issue #3. Read Full Review

    Overall Jem and the Holograms is finding its footing. I think it's actually going to be a hot comic but it's important to remember that they are aiming specifically for young adult audience. This isn't something that is going to have a crazy amount of widespread appeal and that's okay. I'll miss the schlock of the original show but I think rebooting is the smart way to go.

    Weird Science - Joel Bowers Aug 24, 2015

    This issue picks up the story more for our outrageous Pop stars, while we see the story going further we also see the characters develop subtly which I enjoyed. Interactions between everyone is still entertaining and does not drag much. The art work is still amazing to look at as it goes hand in hand with what is unfolding for this story. Read Full Review

    I do think this book is pretty decently paced. At 34 pages of content, you are certainly getting a great deal for your dollar. It isn't out to rush and wants you to get to know the characters. What makes mea bit nervous is that this series may have the same problem that "The Valiant" hadin its final issue, where I felt it had to rush a bit more to get to the end. I know I'm talking about maybes and "what ifs" for two issues that have yet to be released, but I have noticed a bit of a pattern with Valiant story arcs maintaining a 4-issue arc. Previously, the aforementioned "The Valiant" and the second arc of "Rai," both feltlike they would've benefited from someadded breathing roomby being five issues. That said, nothing wrong with “Book of Death” now, but the seriesmay need to pick up the pace a bit to avoid cluttering the final act. Read Full Review
