Techrat Is Out To Ruin A Party In 'Jem And The Holograms' #9
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.
