MILWAUKIE, Ore., (July 21, 2020)—Forget everything you already knew about The Fabulous Killjoys! Writers Gerard Way and Shaun Simon, along with Illustrator Leonardo Romero (Hawkeye), colorist Jordie Bellaire (Redlands), and letterer Nate Piekos (The Umbrella Academy) team up to present an all-new modern day Killjoys series as Way and Simon take it all the way back to the original story that inspired My Chemical Romance’s concept album Danger Days and its dystopian comic book series in The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: National Anthem.     

 
The Fabulous Killjoys, once a group of teenage exterminators determined to save reality, have lost their way—and their memories. After a period of mental confinement, former Killjoys leader Mike Milligram gets de-programmed and hits the road to bring the gang back together for a final showdown against an evil pharmaceutical corporation, their monstrous hitman, and savage gang rivals. 
 

The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: National Anthem #1 (of six) goes on sale October 14, 2020 and is available for preorder at your local comic shop. The first issue has a standard cover illustrated by Leonardo Romero and variant covers by Becky Cloonan and Paul Rentler. This over-sized issue sits at 44 story pages for the standard price of $3.99!
