Writer Kelly Thompson is the queen of making already-existing properties and characters feel like they're brand-spanking new. Artist Sophie Campbell's pencils have so much infectious joy and life in them that she was the perfect choice for Jem and the Holograms, and her work was a huge part of the draw.
