    Killjoys #4 is where the series finally gets awesome. If you dropped the series earlier, give it another chance. I'm serious. You won't regret it. Read Full Review

    With the finish line in sight, The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys>>> Chapter 4: Run! is revving it's engine and firing on all cylinders. I'm not too keen on perfect scores, but I was hard pressed to find a reason against awarding one. Killjoys, you are perfect, now make some noise! Read Full Review

    These are all heavy philosophical questions, and Way, Simon, and Cloonan carry them on their backs as though they were weightless. Bigger picture concerns are handled more deftly than some of the plot's finer details, but overall, it's a stellar issue that is both thought-provoking and engaging. Read Full Review

    As Killjoys nears its conclusion, the quality only gets better. This issue manages to develop every characters motivation, build the world, and create new conflicts. Im afraid to leave this world behind; there is so much more story to tell and only two issues to go. Read Full Review

    The colors are slipping away and things are getting crazier. Its time to run in fear, as the world of the Killjoys gets more violent and treacherous, and I love every minute of it. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Sep 13, 2013

    The artwork by Becky Cloonan is good as usual. Happily, unlike previous issues, she does occasionally have some neat to draw and show why her art is great. The stuff with the sexbots looks good and there are a couple of neat looking panels. Bonus points to the colorist on this for really making a bunch of scenes stand out as well. 4.5 The story with the androids is very emotional.Val is actually good as a villain.The artwork all around is good.The main character and story are dull.BLI are not interesting or compelling.Writing and dialogue is pretty lacking.
