Last Christmas I posted from the Jem Christmas special, a delighful story. There's not one this year (or not that I've seen) but we do have the start of something rather fun, the first spin-off from the Jem title.


One of the high points of the already excellent Jem and the Holograms comics has been writer Kelley Thompson's treatment of The Misfits, the main rival group to the titular heroes.

In the cartoon, the Misfits were rather lacking in backstory. They were great fun, and yes, their songs WERE better, but beyond Pizzazz being a rich girl with anger managment AND daddy issues, Roxy being an illiterate girl from the streets of Philadelphia, Jetta being a serial fantasist come con-artist and Stormer having self image issues and a never quite explained dependency on being in the group, we never really saw how they formed or what bonded them.

The comics have already given us more depth to the group, with Pizzazz being more than just a gifted vocalist with money, she's genuinely committed to the band and it's musical integrity, and in the first issue of their own title, we see more of how they first got together.

The Misfits are it! The Misfits are it! )

"For a longer time than I think people would realize, I was pretty sure she was going to die. It wasn’t actually anything to do with the fans’ response, it was just kind of the fundamental Darth Vader of it. You know what I mean? The biggest problem with the book was, I had all these characters I genuinely liked, and I made the mistake of putting them in the room with Darth Vader and they tended to not survive that experience. Aphra’s push and pull and whatever, and there was a point where I just kind of literally clicked, and I realized, 'Oh my God, she could survive.' As in, I know how she can get out of it." -- Kieron Gillen

"If there were a war on Christmas, I would be the general advancing on it. It’s over-commercialized. I hate seeing decorations on November 1 and I hate Christmas jingles. I had to listen to a lot of Christmas music while I was working on NOS4A2 and I wasn’t too happy about it. I’m sure if you were going down to Hell in an elevator, the music playing would be the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas album and it would speed up the farther you plunged." -- Joe Hill

I posted this in two parts last year, thought it might make a nice comic for Christmas.

This comic is a companion and prequel to Joe Hill's novel NOS4A2, although you don't need to read one to understand the other. Trigger warning for child abuse/rape.
