I wasn’t into MLP or Rainbow Brite as a kid, but I was all about She-Ra and Jem just as much as I was into Transformers and GI Joe.

Should have used this for the intro, and not the first video you found on youtube.

I used to be a hardcore Jem fan, once I discovered the cartoons in ’87, after seeing the toyline in catalogues before then. I even had my phase of re-collecting the doll line through ebay in ’99, and threw in a slew of anime style-inspired fan art until… 2002? Except for that time when I participated in that We Love Fine Jem contest. I hadn’t been following along with recent Jem news, just admiring the Integrity Toy line and hearing passing info on the upcoming live action flick. And since I don’t visit the Jemcon forums (or Hot Topic, where… Read more »

Lastly *putting on a Snob impression* if I wanted a PROPER Jem anniversary special, I will stick to the fan-made 2012 animation by Lena Boone, thank you very much! (Roxy & Aja are a married couple in that one)

To be fair, her most memorable relationship was her episode with Stormer rather than most of her official dates. I’d probably preffer if she was bi (bisexual erasure in media is still big as it is), but I ain’t gonna shed tears over the loss of the boy of the week.

I REALLY love Jem I truly truly truly do but I don’t like this. No music really just takes me out of it, it’s still a good comic and would love to see this get a show

I cannot stress how much I love this comic! I am a HUGE Jem fan, and am sooooooooooooooooo glad that the approach to this comic is what it is. The comic is everything that a reboot should be: It loves the original material while bringing a new look and new stories to the universe.

There’s been a lot of dialogue about making the Holograms “new and modern”; A… Read more »

This looks interesting, but I really want to know if the Stingers will eventually make an appearance. I wonder what Riot’s redesign would look like?

This looks surprisingly promising. Though those crazy high heels look incredibly painful to wear….

I was never a fan of Jem and the Holograms, but I had two siblings who were. Thus, I had suffer many days through entire episodes (since I was such a couch potato, you see). Not long ago, I tried watching the pilot episode and actually had a good time checking out how goofy and absurd it was. There were things like guitar-shaped motorcycles, Jerrica treating her father’s music company like an ATM, and of course, Jerrica actually using the supercomputer the way her father meant for her to use it instead of selling the technology and giving Steven Jobs… Read more »

I think one of the books mentioned she couldn’t be both a performer in AND owner of Starlight Music, and that’s why she needed the secret. But I might be remembering it wrong.
