This is not your mother’s Jem. Go ahead. Ask her. This Jem is different. Maybe nostalgia is what got this series off the ground, but, it is certainly not what is keeping it coming month after month. Jem and the Holograms follows a band of young women who are carving out a place for themselves in the world. They are doing it all: striving for a successful career, eating dessert first, and navigating it all with the help of a super-advanced AI that can generate fully life-like holographic images. Their story is our story! This is such a refreshing and empowering read (I mean the diversification of the cast from what it was? Throw away the receipt, I’m buying that), and the art is as vibrant and alive as the story. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up ASAP.
