Pizzazz Suffers a Fractured Larynx in JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS #10!

A few weeks ago, I wrote about JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS HOLIDAY SPECIAL, which (besides having a Christmas theme) revealed that Pizzazz, the leader of the Misfits, had been injured in a car accident (back in issue #9). She was forced to whisper in the HOLIDAY SPECIAL and it was questionable whether or not she would be able to perform anymore. But we (the readers) still weren't sure about the nature of her injuries.

JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS #10 follows up immediately after the events of issue #9. It turns out that music reporter/romantic interest for Jerrica Benton, Rio Pacheco, was the person who discovered Pizzazz's crash and called 911 for her.

This issue also reveals her diagnosis: Fractured Larynx!

Typical treatment recommendation? Bed rest with the patient's head being slightly elevated. Voice rest. Humidified airs. Possible need for supplemental oxygen if things get really bad. "Nothing by mouth" (NPO) diet, followed by a clear liquid diet. Possible surgery if things get even badder.

I'm really curious how Pizzazz's injury will affect her ability to perform with the Misfits!
