Gerard Way, Shaun Simon and Becky Cloonan’s Killjoys is one of IGN’s Most Anticipated Comics of 2013!
It’s been a while since we’ve seen any comic book work from Gerard Way, the writer of the utterly fabulous Umbrella Academy. Though more Umbrella Academy isn’t in the cards at the moment, his new project – The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys – takes its name from Way’s band’s most recent record, My Chemical Romance’s Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, a concept album about a post-apocalyptic future. This book is the continuation of that story, starring the lone surviving member of the original Killjoys who must continue the good fight against the evil corporation known as Better Living Industries.
But don’t worry, fandom of My Chemical Romance or experience with the Danger Days album isn’t required; Way’s quirky writing style (along with co-writer Shaun Simon) will surely deliver some mighty fine characters, and the inclusion of Becky Cloonan on art duties is simply icing on the cake.See the Full List
