A Direct Tie-In to the My Chemical Romance album ‘Danger Days’!
MILWAUKIE, Ore., (April 27, 2021)—The cult hit comic series, The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, is getting the oversized Deluxe Edition treatment from Dark Horse Comics!

Years ago, the Killjoys fought against the tyrannical megacorporation Better Living Industries, costing them their lives, save for one–the mysterious Girl.
