…and the Jonesy issues just keep getting better and better. It seems like only yesterday that I was falling under her spell with the first issue. This bright and colorful comic has a way of bringing a smile to my face no matter what mood I'm in. This week brings the release of Jonesy #6, from BOOM! Box written by Sam Humphries, with art by Caitlin Rose Boyle. This is the start of the new ARC and I couldn't wait to dive in. Superstar "Stuff" is in town and the thought of being next to him goes straight to Jonesy's head.
[WARNING: SPOILERS FOR JONESY BELOW!]
It's an interesting thing to think about really…I think we've all been there. We've had celebrity crushes and daydreamed about what it would be like to meet them, date them, share the stage. When Jonesy gets the opportunity to perform with Stuff as opposed to attend her friends birthday party, things get tough. After all, how could she pass up the chance to be next to Stuff, the pop-star she's idolized for so long?
It's not a completely easy decision for Jonesy. Missing Farid's birthday is definitely a deterrent. I really enjoyed watching the progression of her character throughout this issue. We get a dose of character development that shows just how much heart she actually has. However, at the same time, the comedy that makes this comic so great is a major highlight for me. I won't be too specific, but Jonesy uses her powers in a laugh out loud kind of way in this one. Thankfully, the fun doesn't end there. The last few pages of the issue bring us through some emotions and a new beginning for our wonderful leading lady. Don't miss out! Grab your issue of Jonesy #6 when it releases tomorrow, September 14th.
