"The tone is definitely in the Darth Vader vein, a bit darker and more serious than most comics I’ve written, since Phasma herself is a bit darker and more serious. It was a nice challenge for me and I hope I rose to the occasion!"

JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS #26, the final issue of the series, is not the end of the story. Most of the issue is the Holograms looking for a missing Kimber. A slightly-concussed Kimber hallucinates being next to a volcano, a Shout Out to the Jem episode "Hot Time In Hawaii."

Also, I was wrong and the Misfits AREN'T in Hawaii, just Stormer. Riot doesn't appear in this issue, so it looks like Jerrica turned down the "We should date each other to make Jem and Rio jealous, and I'm awesome" offer.

In the next-to-last issue of the series (but not the story), the Holograms, the Misfits, the Stingers and Rio are all in Hawaii. And Jerrica has just told Rio she's Jem.

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
