    Occasionally, it might be a little too bright and poppy with M. Victoria Robado's colors, but on the whole, this interlude before the Holograms' big charity performance is a fun way to get to know the band.

    As this book continues to develop I think it will become increasingly clear that Campbells artwork is not in keeping with the tone of the narrative, because if anything, it is setting the tone.

In that this series is a success, as comics don't always have to be sensational of hard-hitting, but sometimes can exist just to lighten the day. Read Full Review

    If you put aside everything about Jem's past, present, and future, the story Kelly Thompson has created is told extremely well. I think Vince McMahon would be proud of how Thompson has put all the right pieces in the right places to build towards an encounter that people will pay to see. Read Full Review
