It’s showtime synergy! Volume 1 of Jem introduces The Holograms and Misfits to audiences new and old. A fun tribute to female friendship, Jerrica and her sisters rise to fame meeting and competing with their idols, the totally cool and confident Misfits! The Holograms increasing popularity and a romance between rival band members causes a definitely not cool rivalry ruining the girl power vibes. Jem and company were excited to meet the biggest stars on the music scene, but meeting their mentors may crush their fandom, and even put their lives at risk! Diverse characters, empowering themes and the importance of a community of supportive young women make this an awesome addition for tween and teens looking to for a transition from books like Smile by Raina Telgemeier, Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson or for fans of the Lumberjanes series. Still full of glitter and glamour like the Jem of the 80s, Thompson and Campbell present a driven group of young musicians with possibly the coolest hair in the comics world (a world known for great hair!). Will friendship and love prevail for the Misfits and Holograms, or does the competition bring this Battle of the Bands to an epic (and truly outrageous) takedown?
