Jem and the Holograms

Best Cosplay Ever (This Week): Star-Lord, Grunkle Stan, Jasmine, X-Men-Meets-Jem, And More

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

Pizzazz Is The Hero Of Her Own Story: Kelly Thompson Talks ‘Dark Jem’

Jem and the Holograms, IDW

Jem and the Holograms has been one of the best comics on the stands ever since its debut, and one of the things that really makes it work is how it expands on the original cartoon in ways that make perfect sense. Jerrica's stage fright, Stormer and Kimber's super-cute relationship, and the recasting of Rio as a music reporter put off by Jem's standoffish nature, have all helped to build Kelly Thompson, Sophie Campbell and Emma Vieceli's story into a great, fleshed-out world.

Now, with "Dark Jem" kicking off this week, they're turning that world upside-down. The Misfits have lost a lead singer, the Holograms are going dark, and something's wrong with Synergy. To find out more, ComicsAlliance spoke with Thompson about the direction for the next arc, the challenge of making Pizzazz and the Misfits sympathetic, and why the current arc has an awful lot to do with The Karate Kid.

Techrat Is Out To Ruin A Party In ‘Jem And The Holograms’ #9 [Preview]

Jem and the Holograms #9, IDW

Y'all know about Techrat, right? He's the single most ludicrous character in the entire Jem and the Holograms franchise, and considering that the baseline for weirdness in that show included a record executive with a completely unnecessary secret identity and a group of punked-up glam rockers who tried to murder their enemies on several occasions, including throwing them into an active volcano once, that's saying something. Techrat, on the other hand, is a full-on evil genius supervillain, and by that, I mean he's the character who invented a working time machine on the show.

So needless to say, I've been waiting for him to show up and make an impact ever since the new series launched at IDW. Now, thanks to Kelly Thompson and Emma Vieceli, he's not only appearing, he's appearing in a disguise that's a reference to The Karate Kid, so it looks like we've got another strong contender for the best single issue of the year. Check out a preview and watch the Misfits crashing Jem's Halloween party below!
