E86: Jem and the Holograms #1 Reviews [Devil Comics Entertainment]

Jem and the Holograms begins as the band prepares to submit a video for a Misfits competition. The band leader Jerrica Benton has stage fright and is unable to perform leading to tensions within the band. She heads home to find a holographic projection called Synergy activated revealing she was created by her late father. Her father left her a present including two holographic projector earrings and a secret room under her home. Jerrica decides to use the earrings as a way to combat her stage fright by becoming her holographic alter ego Jem. The first issue really modernizes the 1980s television series and provides a solid foundation for this series to grow. Writer Kelly Thompson is someone to watch out for in the future.
