When My Chemical Romance frontman turned to comic writing back in 2009, I’m not sure anyone would have guessed it would win him an Eisner Award. Now, the singer turned writer gets in gear to finally release The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys with Dark Horse Comics, taking off from their album of the same name.
The story follows the Killjoys who are in a battle against Better Living Industries. All leads to tragedy for the Killjoys, while BLI thrives in the future by taking freedom away humanity.
