Hello again, readers! I was pretty dang busy reading this month, and made sure that I got plenty of reading done! Let’s jump right into what I read this past month!
Welcome to the first Jem Annual! Ah, I love landmarks like this. Really makes ya feel like things are really off and running, don’t they? Annuals are fun, because they typically give readers a glimpse into how other writers and artists interpret their favorite characters, and the first ever Jem Annual is no exception to that rule. We get four separate stories, one for each Hologram, and one wrap around story to pull it all together. The glue that binds it all together was written by Kelly Thompson, with art and colors by Amy Mebberson. It’s the classic ‘movie night’ scenario, and the Holograms can’t decide what to watch on their night off. In classic style, they all pass out and we get a different dream ‘movie’ from each of the characters.
Fangirls, I’m usually not a huge fan of Annual comics. They tend to be unnecessary and just too much. They usually don’t add to the storyline at all, and cost money, so I always want to skip them, but I never risk it. With Batgirl Annual 3, though, I was really glad I read it.
