It's been confirmed by IDW that the ongoing Jem and the Holograms series will end with #26



But in the words of the song from the show,

"This is Farewell,
Farewell but not for ever."



And of course, one of the cutest same sex pairings around.



I won't post the preview blurb for this one, as it reveals a major spoiler for, I presume, #25 which really does change one of THE biggest plot points of the original series.

And in the same month, the five issue "Misfits" miniseries comes to an end too. :(

LOVE this Jetta cover!

OUR SONGS ARE BETTER Part Five! The Misfits Reality Show has been unearthing all of the bands secrets since day one. Jetta’s secret is bigger than all of them, but she’s also better at keeping it. Still, when coming clean might mean saving the day, will Jetta show her true colors and save her band, or just save herself?



Though this seems a touch more typically Misfit-y!


But series writer Kelly Thompson confirms that this is not the end, just the start of a change

CBR has the news

“Our ‘last issue’ — ‘Jem and The Holograms’ #26 — coming out in April is oversized, including 24 pages of story and lots of extras, so I hope the fans will enjoy that,” Thompson said in a statement to CBR. “However, ‘Jem and The Holograms’ is not over, not by a long shot. In fact, I’d say the most exciting thing we’ve ever done is in our very near future. I can’t say what it is yet, but look for it this summer. It’s not hyperbole to say it’s going to change everything about the Jem universe!”

While it’s not yet known what the next “Jem” project is, it’s notable that last year IDW united most of its other Hasbro properties into a shared universe via the “Revolution” event. While seeing Jem and the Holograms in the same stories as the Transformers and G.I. Joe may be a long shot, it would certainly fulfill Thompson’s promise that “everything” will change about the Jem universe.

Sounds intriguing.

This was the last song in the original animated series of Jem (as unlike some shows, they knew what their final episode would be) and having written a story around one of the kids (the half-Vietnamese Ba-Nee) at the Starlight House orphanage finding her real father, ended with a party where, for no real reason a truce was called, so the three main bands could do a single song together.
