MAGFest is a music and gaming convention that took place the first weekend of 2020. I went to it almost blind; I had heard a lot from friends about it, and their thoughts ranged from, “it’s a cult, join us” to “it smells so bad, you’re going to die.” These responses are both so visceral because when MAG starts on Thursday, it doesn’t close until Sunday afternoon. There are panels at all hours, and they are all over the place. So before we get into it too much, know that while I had an incredible time, it is a lot.

Being that I was born in the early 90’s, ‘Jem’ is just a bit before my time, but I can recall the first time I saw an episode some years back. These glam rockers with fierce fashion, a sassy can-do attitude and strong enforcers of friendship/sisterhood immediately sucked me into their world, so I asked for the DVD box set for Christmas and watched the whole thing in marathon form. From ‘The Misfits’ horrifying attempts to blow up an orphanage (yes, you read that right) to thwart their musical arch-rivals, The Holograms, to Roxy’s illiteracy, to that time Jem took in an orphan with a pill problem, this show had it all.
So naturally, I was completely disappointed when I found out that the movie would have, literally, zero ties to the classic show I had come to know and love. I almost wish you all could have seen my face when I watched the trailer, which might as well have been ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ with music. Maybe. I didn’t even hear them play in the trailer, I don’t think.
When I heard the comic was amazing, I was a little skeptical, because the film trailer crushed my expectations and I didn’t want another disappointment. This weekend I picked up the first two issues and was floored at how amazing they were.
