Jem and the Holograms: Dimensions may be the start of a great new anthology series featuring the great classic characters as well as new ones! Maybe in time it will fill the hole the halt of the regular series in July left in all of us Jem fans.

 

This issue of the new series is split into two stories. The first is written and drawn by Sophie Campbell, whose work was amazing on the original Jem series. The story involves Clash going on a ski trip with a great new character addition, Misty. The art is great and fits the Jem characters so well. The story, however, isn’t that exciting or engaging. I’m fine with anthologies having predictable but fun stories, but this first one was just kind of bland altogether.

 

The second story made up for the first one not being great! Kate Leth’s writing is a lot of fun and Tana Ford’s artwork fits the Jem characters very well. The outfits she drew are amazing and the faces of the characters are funny and expressive. This story has the members of Jem and the Holograms attempting to play a game of Dungeons and Dragons. This attempt brings lots of hilarious dialogue and even some arguments.

 

Altogether, this issue will be loved by fans of Jem and Holograms because it offers so much: interesting artwork, great writing for all of the characters, and of course, fun outfits. Even if a reader hasn’t read Jem and Holograms comics before, this anthology issue is great to just pick up and read for some fun.
