One of the best things about the relaunched Jem and the Holograms comic is how rewarding it's been for long-time fans of the show, going deep into characters' personalities and teaching us new things about them that were only hinted at in the cartoon. Jerrica's stage fright, for instance, was a new invention for the comic that helped to drive the story in a very entertaining way. The first arc did a lot to set that stuff up, but now that we're moving into the second, they're not done yet, because in #7, we learn the shocking news that Jerrica Benton doesn't listen to podcasts.

If she did, she probably wouldn't be so stressed about having to build a website --- and at the very least, she would've told Synergy to use discount codes when she went online to buy some domain names. But, well, I imagine that when you have a sentient holographic supercomputer friend, it pays to delegate a little. Either way, it's just the start of Jerrica's stress, and you can check it out in a preview below!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am genuinely curious to know what the six URLs were that Synergy bought, and which ones were rejected.

While writer Kelly Thompson remains on the book, the art on this arc comes from Emma Vieceli and M. Victoria Robado while Sophie Campbell takes a break, but remains on covers. Here's the official solicitation:
