jem and the holograms vol 2 viral Reviews

    And I am back to continuing my nostalgic journey with Jem and the Holograms second volume that was not up to bar compared to the first volume, but is still a strong girl powerish graphic beauty that I would highly recommend to its target audience, even when I as an adult was not in complete awe with.Viral is a decent volume that collects issues 7 through 10, and has few specials included such as Holiday issue, which makes it a solid 6 issue read. It is worth the money in amounts, but not necessarily in quality.Thompson keeps the girly fluff alive with art that is high on beauty, positiveness and colorfulness. It feels dense and vivid in a good way, the way you want to cherish it, and most definitely want to look at it, not to mention every young girl wanting to have it on their shelves. It is such a decorative bliss.But what Thompson does differently with second volume, is to use multiple artists that highlights the quality changes of each issue. With some graphics it does work and make wonders, but with Jem it was not a successful experimental approach, and I personally feel that the tenth issue in particularly was such a miss that it is almost a shame to be included in this collection.What I do think Jem does fantastically is to offer diversity. Each girl has various different physical features as well as personality traits that gives most something to identify with, which I think is extremely important when talking about a bit younger audience.The glitter, the pink, the fluff has gotten more serious tones as many of the stories deal with issues that may be benefiting and helpful among tweens and teens such as accepting yourself the way you are, forgiveness, relationships, perfectionism, friendship, ambition, loss of a parent, and safe driving.I could go on and on with the list, but what I really need to tell is that everything is tackled through with different perspectives and points of view, through positive and negative, just as it should.I did not find Viral to be as captivating collection, I did not care for the first issue, and the art in tenth issue was shockingly bad, special issues felt more fillers than interesting additions. BUT if I would have been a younger person, this would most likely have been the absolute dope.So yes, it is more me than it is Jem, and Jem is what should be found on the nightstands of every girl.

    Read as single issues. I love this series. It's just so bright and fun! It's still everything I could have hoped for in a new Jem comic.Re-read 9/21/2016

    This series continues to be a chipper, brighter alternative to current, mainstream publications. What it lacks in depth and development, it makes up for in positivity and inclusiveness.Just like in the 80's, I'm finding myself more drawn to the plight of the Misfits than the Holograms; however I find that the dynamic between the Holograms is more ripe with humour, especially with Kimber and Aja.The biggest stumble in this volume was with the artwork in issue 10, which seemed completely off-model with every character. Not quite truly outrageous... But pretty fun, nonetheless.3/5

    The first issue of this volume was a little random, but it was smooth sailing after that.

    The second collected edition is a bit of a mish-mash, the main story doesn't advance that much but it's still a lot fun (and builds up to things that look interesting), and the Christmas story was very cute! The annual material was okay in places but it was my least favourite part.This comic series is GREAT in general though! ♥And ohmigosh I love Kimber! (>3<)

    I read this in the individual issues + Outrageous Annual + Holiday Special, and the only issue I didn't give 5 stars to was #10 Jem and the Holograms (2015-) #10. The artwork in #10 didn't have the same feeling to it as the others. Even though the artists have varied in other issues you can still see the familiar aspects to each character and they still look like themselves. Like Aja and Rio's Asian features are gone, as one example. The writing doesn't have the same feel to it either and comes off a little trite in places? It might just be that the whole thing is from Rio's perspective causing the difference in tone, but the combined feeling of the issue is just *off*. That's the only reason this volume isn't 5 stars like the first for me. I only took off one star too since the other issues and the two specials were their usual awesome selves. (On it's own issue #10 gets 3 stars from me.)

    This was such a fun read. I especially enjoyed the muppet babies and karate kid references. I love that there are fuller figure characters and gay characters. I love the colors and illustrations. There is one issue where the art is really bad but thank goodness the art goes back to normal in the following issue.

    Goddamit, this series is so ridiculous and so good. Patchy art and a meaningless 'what-if' issue, but the rest hits ALL MY FEELS. Better storylines than the first volume, especially now that Thompson is moving away from simply adapting old episodes (okay, unless she still is, bc honestly past the first few eps I wouldn't know. I try to act like I'm cool, but I'm not that cool).

    This was even better than volume one. I can't decide which characters is my favorite. They are so lovable and adorable and funny.

    Finally! I finally got to read it. And, yes, I loved it, though maybe not quite as much as the first trade. It still manages to be a powerhouse of strong women, great body image, and style that I want to steal, shallow as that sounds.I'll do my best to review without giving too much away.Now that Jem and the Holograms have gained some fame, Jerrica is stuck with all of the management work while the rest of her band mates get to have lives. Jerrica pours over her e-mails for most of this book (At one point we learn that she has 600) and struggles to manage the band, lead the band, and maintain two identities. Whenever the Holograms are asked to help, they are too busy. They have romances, classes, internships to apply for. You just can't help but feel BAD for Jerrica.Understandably, everyone is upset when Jerrica agrees to sign the band with the same label as The Misfits but they give in a sign contracts when Jerrica loses it over the lack of help. On the other side of things, The Misfits have been given a manager after some bad publicity and the manager has won over Pizzazz by promising to take down Jem and the Holograms. The only problem? The label has planned a tour with the Holograms opening for the Misfits.There are a couple of cliffhangers in here that are vital to the story but would spoil it for you too. Suffice to say, I will be waiting impatiently for the next trade.

    ****SPOILERS!!!****I love this comic series so much. My inner child is singing, but only Misfits lyrics because Jem songs still kinda stink. So many characters I remember from the cartoon are stepping into this new plot. We've got Eric now, and Techrat, and I love the new take on Eric. He didn't discover the Misfits, he was brought in to help rein them in. I love how they get to business with him basically saying, You know, you signed a terrible contract. This is what you get for signing before had a manager to read over things for you.We find out Aja's blue-haired boyfriend is indeed Craig Phillips and Shana's bartender cutie is Anthony who is now a film school student instead of an older man who probably could have been Shana's father (in the cartoon).I'm loving this modern take. And Jetta and Roxie are hilarious and I wonder about their relationship. Stormer will always be my favorite Misfit, though Jetta's looking pretty cool. And Pizzazz... Pi's not so bad. I've found her amusing, but in these books, she's human. She shows remorse and actually does things that shows, deep down, she does care about her group. If you ever were a Jem fan, you need to read this series!

    I bought this volume a month or so ago but just got around to reading it because I was a little disappointed to see that Sophie Campbell didn't draw it! I love her art style. But the writing is still on point and there is still a lot to love about the artwork in this book. Story-wise, I love the introduction of Eric Raymond and Techrat (especially Techrat) and I'm looking forward to seeing the character development of Pizzazz, which this book started to really touch upon. I'm also thrilled and amused to see how the writers and artists included the famous scene from the original cartoon of Rio kicking over a plant in frustration, but with an updated twist. Comic Rio is infinitely more likeable than cartoon Rio, that's for sure.As for art style, I think I was most pleased with Rebekah Issacs' artwork in Aja's Mad Max inspired dream sequence (Angry Aja), Tula Lotay's artwork (which is similar to Campbell's style) and M. Victoria Robado's artwork. They're all pretty different, but if any of them continue to do pencils for this series, I'll be pretty happy about it.I'm looking forward to volume 3 (and I might have to pick up Sophie Campbell's Dark Jem series, which I know little about.)

    When I initially started reading Jem, the draw for me was nostalgia and the super appealing artwork of Sophie Campbell. This second TPB of the series is sorely missing Campbell's work. I was disappointed, not that I don't like the artists that have taken over, I just don't find the art as appealing as it was in Showtime. That being said, thank God Kelly Thompson is still at the writing helm on this series, because while in this volume I find the art lacking, the writing is top notch. A good story can carry a comic. I was pleasantly surprised in this issue with the subtle touches of humanizing the Misfits, especially Pizzazz, it's nice to see the antagonists get some more depth.The story is getting much more meatier, the characters are really coming into their own, and I am hands down loving what is being done here with this title. I'd give this volume five stars, but I really wish Campbell was back doing the artwork. I came to Jem for the art, but am staying for the story. It's such a rare treat to see female relationships portrayed so honestly in a comic. I cannot wait for the next volume.

    4 starsBuy itFirst there was some dreams of three of the girls. Jerrica’s was a bit predictable but otherwise good. Aja,s was fun and Shana’s was a spoof of starwars which was funny. Finally Kimber’s dream was a spoof of the 80s Muppet Babies tv show. It was sweet but a bit too much so. The rest of the volume continues with the Misfits out to get Jem and the holograms. They are working hard to get back at them. In story 3 or 4 Jem and the Holograms have a party and the misfits are undercover to take them down.I just have to say, who let the artist draw on issue 5. It's so bad it makes me say WTF!!??!??!! At least the story was still decent.So overall, this volume wasn't as good as the first. The first had a good arc but this one seemed weak so I had to lower my rating. Plus having guest artists was really bugging me, especially whomever drew story #5. That being said, it was still a bunch of fun so still worth buying and reading.

    I really like this series! I love it aesthetically - the colors, the clothes, the hairstyles. I also appreciated the queer relationship that just exists; it's not an "issue." I think the main reason I like this series so much is that it features strong female lead characters. In fact, most of the characters are young women - and they're all badasses. I really liked the new Batgirl comics for the same reason. I can't overstate how important it is to me as a comics reader to see characters that reflect the kind of person I am/the kind of person I want to be. It's not enough to have female characters - even female leads - if they're just going to be like the dumb stereotypes from the Archie comics. I want characters that are smart, strong, and witty - and, to my surprise, this series delivers.I'm always on the lookout for more like this - if you have any suggestions, post a comment!

    This volume was weaker than the last, but, from what I've seen of the next arc, leads into some amazingly cool sci-fi stuff. It has a little bit of middle-book-syndrome where too many plot threads are going at once and none of them resolve. It's point B rest-stop on the way to point C. But, the moment when (view spoiler)[the hacker guy says that Synergy (hide spoiler)] is broken and her eyes go black gave me shivers. I have the singles for the next arc and I'll probably read them right now.

    The whole suffered a bit from having so many different guest artists and "filler stories" from the Jem annual. While they were cute, they made the volume a bit all over the place. I'm still into the plot, which did progress a lot, the character interactions continue to be great, and I found some of the artists quite enjoyable. Very much looking forward to Sophie Campbell being back on the job in the next volume, though!

    I was really saddened by how quickly this comic became repetitive and boring. The first volume was great, even without having grown up with the cartoon show. This one was pretty and I love seeing all the cute flirty scenes featuring such an array of diverse queer femmes, but the script-writing was really bad.

    Another excellent outing from the Jem and the Holograms comic. I am seriously surprised this has yet to be optioned off as a TV Series, cartoon or live action. THIS is what the movie should have been based on. The characters are compelling, the storylines good. I cannot wait for the next volume, which I assume will cover the Dark Jem storyline.

  • Amanda

    At first I didn't love it as much as Volume 1, mainly because of the boring, contrived dream sequences at the beginning, but it turned it around and managed to keep up the fun pop culture references and maintain the sweet, funny, heartwarming vibe of the first one.

    This volume was a little slow, but I still enjoyed it a lot. I appreciated the insight on the Misfits and how they work as a team despite all of the attitude and snark. Basically, I continue to weep at the perfection.

    While they lost the amazing Sophie in the art, I still quite liked this series. It tries very hard to be more than just "about music and glamour" and more about girls and people, and for that, I'll always keep reading it.

    I love all of the characters in Jem & the holograms especially Pizzazz, Kimber, and Stormer. The colours and outfits for each of the girls is beautiful I die everytime. It's just a very cute series in general

    I love these Jem graphic novels so much! The bright colors, the fashions, the stories, the characters, I love it all! Whenever I read another issue, I immediately want to get lost in their world and live there forever. Such an adorable and awesome read. I can't wait for the next one!

    I love how this comic goes to deeper and darker places than the 80s cartoon ever did. I am completely hooked.
