PREVIEW: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, #1
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 or else join the mindless ranks of Bat City!
The follow-up to the album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys! FROM THE CREATOR OF THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY!
Because the next installment of The Umbrella Academy has been promised for over three years now, with no visible progress other than the title and one image. Gerard Way has said he'd wait any length of time for Gabriel Bá to be available to draw it, and I agree Bá's art is a huge part of the series' appeal, but I need to hear something concrete about it before I let myself get excited about another project from Way. The first volume of The Umbrella Academy is responsible for getting me back into comics, and its been roughing waiting for the next part of something I enjoy so much.
I'm excited. I love the Umbrella Academy and can't wait for more, if Bá is every available again. Preview whet my appetite, I enjoyed the MCR album and the video's have set the stage for what will hopefully be a great book.
Considering Ba and Moon are both getting writer credits with Mignola and sole artist credits on BPRD: Vampire I wouldn't see them passing on that "nonsense" as you call it even to work with Way on the next installment of Umbrella Academy. Patience is a virtue, be happy we're getting a new comic from Way and can read Way and Bá each month even if it is in separate comics.
