With the release of the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens there’s been a lot of excitement (understatement) about continuing the Star Wars franchise. Picking up where the original three movies left off, the new Star Wars introduced a whole new cast of characters to fall in love with and new story lines to unfold in front of our eyes. There’s a whole generation about to fall in love with Star Wars all over again, and as a lifelong Star Wars nut, it’s really exciting. However there are some out there, I’m sure you’ve seen them, who aren’t so excited for the new Star Wars movies. They’re on your social media pages talking about how they don’t care about Star Wars or have never seen the movies or find it weird that people can be so excited about it. Well this article is dedicated to those people. Sit on down children, I’m about to tell you why Star Wars is so important.
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.
For those confused by the name in the author field here, allow me to introduce myself.

Fangirls, I’m sure you’re as excited as I am for The Force Awakens; it looks like it’s going to be beyond amazing. I am extremely ready for it. And you know what gets me even more excited for it? A make-up crossover! Covergirl released a full line of Star Wars: The Force Awakens cosmetics, and as rad as all of it looks, I only went for the lipstick, because that’s what floats my boat the most (since I already have go-tos for eyeliner and mascara). So on a trip to Walmart with one of my friends, I saw and grabbed all six!
Fangirls, with Force Friday nearly upon us, and the next Star Wars film drawing nearer daily, who doesn’t want to spend their time binging on everything Star Wars they can get their hands on? When I was offered a copy of William Shakespeare’s Tragedy of the Sith’s Revenge (by Ian Doescher), I jumped on it.
Fangirls, back at the superbowl, I was not watching. I was as uninterested in the commercials as I was in the game. Until Facebook notified me that a new trailer was released for a new show coming to NBC called Heroes Reborn (that trailer is here). And suddenly my disinterest dissolved and I watched the trailer about five times in that one night. I was so excited. I had been a huge fan of the original series; even after many fans began to lose interest, I was still there every week to know what happened. And with this new series, I decided I needed to rewatch the original series. So here we go with the first episode.
Note: none of these Heroes posts will be spoiler free.
Fangirls, if movies have taught me anything, it’s not to trust artificial intelligence. From The Terminator to Ultron, robots are damn dangerous, and even more so when they can think for themselves.
