    Comicosity - Matt Santori Sep 2, 2015

    It took a long time for Jem and the Holograms to come back into vogue, but clearly the wait was worth it. Thompson and Campbell are delivering one of the most fun and sophisticated action (and romance) titles of the year, and I could never have imagined it could be this good. Brava to all the creators, and a special shout-out to Campbell, whose reflection in the back of this issue makes the success of this title all the sweeter. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Sep 1, 2015

    There might be those that think that the approach for the new series is somewhat simplistic. After all after the first six issues, there has not been a lot of development in terms of plot as the character's have played out the battle of the bands story. It is true that the story could be considered a bit bare, but stories have to succeed on either their characters or their concept, and while the concept is played out slowly here, the characters are so full of life, thanks to both the art and the script, that it more than compensates for the slow-ish development of the plot.

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Sep 5, 2015

    Writer Kelly Thompson and artist Sophie Campbell approach a real-life situation with realistic consequences as the Holograms are kicked out of the battle of the bands; having a science fairy that imbues confidence and performing power doesn't help against bylaws and contracts. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Ten Van Winkle Sep 5, 2015

    A big reason I'm so sore about this weird issue is that the last five have been pristine, and I'll be real: I'm still buying it. I plan to continue to buy it until such a time as a crappy creative team comes on board. I wanted answers because I want the best for these characters–because I love these characters. The richness and diversity doesn't stop at their looks or fashion senses. All of these girls (mostly girls, and no one bats an eye) represent a different, distinct personality or taste or struggle. Sometimes this means you identify strongly with them. Sometimes this means you're already biased against them. But they always compare to real life in a way that is joyful and hopeful–and fun. With it's legs soundly under it, Jem seems ready to rock and roll in the coming months, hopefully with happy endings. Read Full Review
