Patrick and Myles’ Comic Book Buy Pile 9/16/15

Myles:   It feels like #6 just came out, but I will not complain in the slightest about more Jem! Jem and the Holograms #7 sees artist Sophie Campbell taking a breather and handing the reins over to Emma Vieceli. Transitioning artists can sometimes feel awkward for readers, but Vieceli arrives flawlessly. Though her personal style is different, Vieceli is just as gifted with emotive expressions as her predecessor, which has been consistently one of the shining characteristics of the book. Her panels are filled with character interactions, creating a constantly flow of movement on the page. I’m so happy M.…

Patrick & Myles Pick: {P}: So I figured instead of Myles and myself fighting each month with who gets to pick IDW’s “Jem and the Holograms” by Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell as their favorite comics, I would provide a place for us to settle our differences, and both gush over it. Issue #6 is on your comic book stands this week and we get what we’ve been waiting for this entire series: vehicles shaped liked musical instruments (and now a no spoilers review besides that major spoiler). {M} Yeah, I could not get over those designs at all. SO…

TMYN’s Comic Book Buy Pile 6/24/15

Myles: To the surprise of no one, my pick this week is Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell’s Jem and the Holograms #4. It’s been no secret how much I love the property and this comic, but Thompson and Campbell continue to outdo themselves with each subsequent issue. Thompson’s pacing continues to be one of my favorite aspects of this book. Each story beat moves along nicely, but she’s taking her time developing the characters, their relationships and the “origin story” of Jem and the Holograms. The whole of the first arc is feeling like an hour-long pilot episode as opposed trying…
