I've been enjoying the Jem and the Holograms series (and so was sorry to hear the series will be cancelled with #26), and LOVING the Misfits mini (seriously, I've held off on posting anything from #2 because I need the 1/3 rule to make the required impact)

And so, at ECC and courtesy of AV Club, IDW announced what will be taking it's place and... well... it's not quite what anyone was expecting...

There was much speculation that they might be folding Jem into the IDW combined universe properly, but tha'ts NOT what they're doing.

Jem And The Holograms: Infinite is a new biweekly crossover that ramps up the fantasy sci-fi elements of the story, taking Jem And The Holograms and The Misfits to a new world that promises to shake up the futures of both groups.

The FIRST-EVER Jem/Misfits Crossover Event begins here and now with “INFINITE PART ONE!”

Now a happy quintet, Jem and The Holograms are stronger than ever, which is a good thing because they’re about to embark on an adventure unlike anything they’d ever imagined possible.

After a public fight with The Misfits at a charity event, a strangely dressed Techrat shows up and takes them to a whole new world... literally. And it is going to change EVERYTHING.

The FIRST EVER Jem/Misfits Crossover Event continues here in “ INFINITE PART TWO!”

Never okay with letting Jem and The Holograms steal the spotlight, The Misfits have followed them to this “brave new world” and are shocked by what they find... a world ruled by JEM and powered by Synergy Hologram Technology. WHAT. IS. EVEN. HAPPENING!?!

“We love what we’ve already done with Jem and The Holograms and The Misfits and we didn’t want to change any of that, but we did want to shake things up in a very real way that will matter. So [we did] our first ever crossover event!” says Thompson. “We decided to go about as big as you can go...other worlds, sci-fi shenanigans, reunions, betrayals, death, destruction, saving the world, and also, of course, music. It’s a really fun change of pace for us, but one that I think completely fits into everything that has come before and with creators like Stacey Lee, Jenn St-Onge, and M. Victoria Robado on board I feel confident we’re gonna pull it off with style to spare.”

Whilst I'm not quite sure that you can have a crossover when the other group are integral to the primary title already, I'll take it! :D

Oh, and I am sort of getting a little vibe of the sequel series to Josie and the Pussycats back in the 1970's...

This continues right from the ending of the first series, right? It's a sequel, not a reboot?

Seems weird to call it a crossover when the Misfits were big players in the first Jem title and only ever had a miniseries to themselves. And if this event is itself a miniseries, what happens after?

Per Kelly, she doesn't know at this time what is next...if anything is next but she did state that slipping sales was one of the reasons the original series is canceled.

Aw, that's a shame :( Fingers crossed this breathes some new life into the franchise, I'd hate to see it go entirely. Still, if this is the end, I'm glad that it's going out with what looks to be a bang.

Best case would be a bunch of limited series since there wasn't enough sales to long term sustain the series. Annual or Bi-Annual mini series might be the best hope for Jem.
