Dark Horse Comics have revealed that a new six-part series of The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, the story written by Gerard Way and Shaun Simon and inspired by My Chemical Romance's album of the same name, is coming.
The first issue of The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys: National Anthem is set to be released on October 14 and will focus of formed Killjoy leader Mike Milligram.
Here's a little synopsis:
“There is no dystopian future—no wasteland to hide out in. Set in the 1990s and 2000s, National Anthem is a completely different story with a whole different set of rules. Mike Milligram and his gang of teenage exterminators operate in the Unseen where they bend reality to keep the real world’s status quo safe. But everything is about to change when the doors of the Unseen are closed and Mike and his Killjoys are thrust into the real world and forced to grow up and get real jobs. Screens, phones and a stagnant malaise become the new normal. When Mike’s TV breaks and his Ramones records seem to have been erased, he starts to wake up. Mike Milligram sets off on a journey to pull the curtains down on a cover-up that could change the course of history, past, present and future.”
