“The pulse is beating like a cheetah on speed!”

No longer content to hide from the prying eyes and lies of BLI, the Girl tries her hand at learning how to fire a ray gun with the help of a former Killjoy, Cherri Cola. But when her vision bends and her mind opens, will the Girl see beyond sight and view more than she can handle? How far can you see when you lose focus?

    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Aug 14, 2013

    There's been doubt attributed to the sporadic nature of this comic, hell I've even been a critic myself, but if this book continues the upstroke that it seems to be and gives us a payoff worth waiting for, it could be the sleeper hit that The Umbrella Chronicles was years before.

    Geeked Out Nation - Roel Fiala Sep 24, 2013

    Yet, once again, another solid read. There is really nothing I can say bad about this issue. The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys continues to be an ever expanding world that offers something new with each issue. The dialogue and visual aspects as well as the themes of the issue make this unique story very coercive and thrilling. Look Alive, Sunshine. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Sam LeBas Aug 16, 2013

    “The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys” works in layers. At it's core is a purposeful tone, embodying the experience of leaving childhood behind. Just outside of that, the setting offers a canvas for that voice to come to life. The experiences of the characters form the next layer, drawing themes into focus. Binding all that together are the visual elements of the story, which allow us to peer through the window of this world. The pieces come together to form something innovative and exuberant, unique and worthwhile. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - FTG Contributor Aug 13, 2013

    Killjoys is a great example of a comic can make up for leaving readership in the dark by just being a really well written comic. Even though the issue lacks a recap and doesn't fill you in very well the world does a great job of drawing you in and making you want to know more, where most comics that lack a recap flounder because the story and the world aren't interesting enough to make you want to learn more about them Killjoys has an imaginative world that really peeks your interest. The world itself never feels un-creative or flat and finds new energy and creative spins for tired old genre tropes all wrapped around very endearing and human central story, highly recommended.

    Sometimes the best things in a comic arent even a part of the actual story, but even the dullest of pages in this series are exciting to me. Come and learn about Frankuloids and Porno Droids in this beautiful issue. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jimbus_Christ Aug 16, 2013

    Killjoys is a solid read, start to finish. The issue adds some real depth to the characters that was vastly needed to keep the stakes of the narrative fresh. It seems the future of the plot may go a very traditional and predictable route, however, the book has surprised before. This wasnt as good as the debut issue, but a compelling chapter nonetheless. Im looking forward to more. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Aug 14, 2013

    I think there is something exciting or remarkable on the horizon with this whole possible war/revolution between these teens in the desert and BLI, plus the storyline with the robots is actually quite good. However, with just flat heroes and villains, slow progression (you got three more issues, do something!), lackluster dialogue and story structure, and wasting perfectly well-drawn art; the Killjoys comic continues to be fall flat of what it could possibly be. So much potential, but yet mostly a dud. Read Full Review
