As much as we all like to fancy ourselves as self-sufficient islands, it’s impossible to really get through life while also enjoying yourself if you don’t have people in your corner who want to see you succeed. Narratively, this week’s best new comics have little in common other than the fact that they’re a testament…
The Jem and the Holograms comic is nearing the end of its 26 issue “Truly Outrageous” run, and Issue #24 shows it’s not afraid to go where the original TV series was afraid to go. Jerrica’s finally laying it all out on the table, for the one person who deserves the truth the most.
First, the good news: 2015 was a fantastic year at the movies. There were great original stories, sequels done right, adaptations that match their source material and more. But for every great movie, there’s a ton of bad ones too. Here’s our picks for the best and worst science fiction and fantasy films of 2015.
The original Jem cartoon from the 80s is beloved for a reason—and it offers a lot of great material for a modern musical superhero movie. So the movie version could have been great. Instead, the Jem movie left all the best parts of the cartoon on the table.
When Christy Marx was a little girl, she took her Batman comics and gave Robin a girl’s hairdo and a little skirt, because she was tired of not having female heroes to look up to. Then she grew up and gave us Jem and the Holograms. This interview with her by The Front is incredible and fascinating.
Young people, right? They like young-people shit, like YouTube videos, Instagram selfies and crazy hair. If you hate young people but want to pander to them for some reason—like, if you have loathsome, foul-smelling stepchildren—you can always take them to see Jem and the Holograms.
For good or ill, the fact there’s a Jem and the Holograms movie is kind of thanks to Justin Bieber.

In the latest promo for the Jem and the Holograms movie, Universal has released what amounts to a music video for the film’s original song “Youngblood.” And it’s... okay.
The second trailer for the live-action Jem movie is here with new disheartening info. It appears that the holographic AI named Synergy, who gives Jem her rockin’ powers in the cartoon, will be in the movie... but as some tiny robot that plays home movies? Also: Still no Misfits.
One of the saddest things about the live-action Jem & the Holograms movie is that Jem’s rival band, the Misfits, are nowhere to be found. That’s incredibly dumb—because the Misfits are an integral part of why the 80s cartoon was so amazing. And, if you believe the opening theme, their songs are actually better.
There’ll be more Twin Peaks than we previously thought, too. The star of Jem and the Holograms discusses reactions to the trailer. What are the differences between the final Ant-Man script and Edgar Wright’s original draft? Plus, a crazy casting rumor for the Static Shock web series. To me, my Spoilers!
The trailer for the Jem and the Holograms movie is out and... no. Just no. We get a Jerrica who goes from shy girl to diva, no Misfits, no artificial intelligence, and NO ACTUAL HOLOGRAMS? It’s like the people who made this thing never actually watched the show.
The first full shots of the new Jem and the Holograms movie give us a good look at the characters’ new costumes. There’s a lot of studs and rhinestones, but are they really bright enough?
