Gerard Way’s First ‘Killjoys’ Story Gets Collected in an Oversized Deluxe Edition

The cult hit comic series, The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, is getting the oversized Deluxe Edition treatment from Dark Horse Comics! Created by Gerard Way and longtime collaborator Shaun Simon (You Look Like Death, Neverboy), with art by Becky Cloonan (Southern Cross, The Punisher), colors by Dan Jackson (The Strain, Ghost), and letters by Nate Piekos (The Umbrella Academy, Black Hammer) The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: California Deluxe Edition arrives this October!

Years ago, the Killjoys fought against the tyrannical megacorporation Better Living Industries, costing them their lives, save for one--the mysterious Girl. Today, the followers of the original Killjoys languish in the Desert while BLI systematically strips citizens of their individuality. As the fight for freedom fades, it's left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI!

This oversized deluxe hardcover sits at 144 pages and collects issues #1-#5 of the 2014 series The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: California—the deluxe format also includes a slipcase designed by Tony Ong and an exclusive print by Becky Cloonan, the short story "Dead Satellites," with the expanded sketchbook section from the Limited Edition!

The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: California Deluxe Edition (SRP: $79.99) will be available everywhere books are sold October 20, 2021.
