En junio del 2013, Gerard Way dio vida a ‘The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys‘, un cómic conformado por 6 tomos que que vivieron desde mediados de ese año hasta su entrega final en enero del 2014.

Hoy, el líder de My Chemical Romance y también creador de ‘The Umbrella Academy’, no sólo ha anunciado que la serie de ‘Killjoys Comics’ tendrá un reissue de sus primeros números, sino que también contará con una nueva saga denominada ‘The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: National Anthem‘ que le dará un giro por completo a la línea del cómic, para hacerlo un tanto más “adulto”.

Yesterday, we announced a new True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys series: National Anthem. We’re really excited about this book, because we take everything back to the original concept for the series that could have been, many years ago, before it became an MCR concept record and subsequent comic series, now known as TLFK: California. The first thing to know about National Anthem is that it’s very different from any Killjoys material you have seen, read, or heard before. You may recognize some visual elements of the characters, but these are completely different characters from the gang we saw in California 2019. These are the original characters: Mike Milligram, The Codes— Red and Blue, Animax, Kyle 100%, and a ton of others, as well as changes these characters go through years later, and an eventual new member of the gang. This story is set in the 1990’s and the 2000’s, in a world as its was back then. All these years later, Shaun and I couldn’t get this story out of our heads, and thought it was powerful, unique, and different enough from what we had done before to warrant actually making the thing, and I’m really happy we did. The first issue was written in one and a half weeks, about 44 pages long, and it was dying to get out. So, try and come to this with a fresh brain and unlearn everything you know about the Killjoys. It’s also a mature readers book. The creative team is one of the best I have ever worked with, some old friends and new friends. Shaun Simon co-writes with me, @leo_romero11 handles the line art, @whoajordie handles the colors, @natepiekos handles the letters, @beckycloonan as well as @prentler and others, handle the variant covers. And everyone is doing something they’ve never done before, and operating from a new and experimental place. It hits shops and digital on October 14th, published by @darkhorsecomics. We can’t wait for you to check it out. #tlfk #thetruelivesofthefabulouskilljoys #TLFKnationalanthem #nationalanthem #darkhorsecomics #booksontape

A diferencia de otros proyectos, este nuevo cómic será co-escrito por Shaun Simon quien de la mano de Gerard Way, irá trazando una línea creativa que no se salga de los esquemas de lo “razonable” para controlar la imaginación del cantante, y procurar un cómic serio, profundo, crudo pero no menos aventurero, vivo y al estilo del líder de MCR.

¿Listos para más aventuras de los Killjoys?
