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. )

Fact: One of the best series that came out in 2016 was Chelsea Cain's Mockingbird
There were a lot of good things about Mockingbird. For one, the structure of the first story. If readers read #1 first and #5 last, it didn't matter what order they read #2, #3 and #4. That's new for me and a bit exciting. The story was also told from Bobbi's point of view, so that readers were not presented with a literal and accurate reflection of what happened, but a version of the truth that was filtered by Bobbi's own perceptions, much like what Fraction and Aja's Hawkeye run did with Clint.
Fact: One of the best series that came out in 2014 was Matt Fraction and Annie Wu's Hawkeye. Not just because of the elegant one page story that appeared in #20. And not just because the Brian Wilson story was captivating and heartbreaking and is probably my favourite single issue story.. And not even because they put in that meme about the girl who started a house fire. It's quick, fun and surprisingly emotional storytelling.
News: After two issues, it looks like Kelly Thompson has managed to combine the good bits from both of those books in her new Hawkeye series.

'I never expected to love writing Medusa and Dazzler so much for example, but I quickly found things I adored about both of them – in Alison a real humanity and vulnerability that I didn’t expect, and with Medusa, well, the bitchy bored “better than you” thing is just always fun.' - Kelly Thompson

...there was another TV series heroine who was not afraid to be a badass, and at the same time embrace her feminine side.

Of course, her giant pink robot pteradactyl probably helped...

"When I created the Banshees in the first go round, I did something really dumb. I considered having a black woman be part of the team, and then didn't because in the real-life air service pilots in World War II, the two black women that applied were turned down because of racism. And I thought, well then, I can't have black women here either. Even though at the same time I was breaking all sorts of other rules. For some reason I thought it was okay for them to fight giant robots, but having a black woman was too much of a stretch. It's embarrassing, so when we were talking about bringing these characters back, I had a chance to correct that." - Kelly Sue DeConnick

For those who might think the Jem comic book is too bright and shiny, well the third arc is going in completely the other direction as we meet

And the end of issue #4, The Holograms are performing at a benefit concert. But, OH NO! Clash has sabotaged the set and the lights are about to fall on Jem!

Six and one-third pages out of twenty )

Congratulations to the USA! Three days since the SCOTUS made their historic ruling, and you still haven't all be struck down by divine lightning yet! (Clearly you're just not trying hard enough, so you know what they say "Practice! Practice! Practice!!)

And to celebrate, three pages from Jem and the Holograms #4



It's like Romeo and Juliet... except with powerchords and lesbians, and hopefully a lower mortality rate. )

...as a Truly OUTRAGEOUS post

(Sorry, I had to get that out of my system and better now than later)

Now as you know, I pride myself on being the manliest of men, the most testosterone-driven pile of XY chromosome derived masculinity as you could ever hope to meet...

And like all manly men, I have an unfeasily large interest in a mid 1980's cartoon series called "Jem", a series with an almost entirely female cast (only three regular male characters over the whole series; the heroine's boyfriend, the evil manager, and a rival band's lead singer in the last run of episodes) and featuring more female agency than most other cartoon series since the mid 1980's combined! In the words of the theme song there was 'Glamour and Glitter, Fashion and Fame', but also adventure, romance, a heroine who is an executive as well as a pop star, some sci fi in the form of her hologram projecting earrings, exotic locations and... well, pretty much everything you'd hope for in a cartoon (and no ccomedy relief pets!)

I posted some of the preview character bios, and also a little sample of #2 a few weeks back, but those are the only posted pages on S-D do far (somewhat to my surprise), so I though that, now #3 is out, I would make a slightly longer look at it, because by heck it deserves one.

Only the Beginning! )
