    Unleash The Fanboy - Eric Bridges Oct 29, 2013

    The story is great. The writing proves to get better and better with each issue. Gerad Way and Shaun Simon know how to interweave the ideas of a band into a killer story that continues to be interesting and exciting. I have to give them props for this because I don't think that it would be easy to do a comic like this. Hats off. Read Full Review

    Killjoys may be on the way out, but there is still one issue to go. Its been one hell of a ride thanks to killer writing, characters, and style. This is what comic books were designed for. I cant wait to see where the story ends up next month. Although Im sure it will be met with a feeling of melancholy, as this fantastic series will be over. If it manages to stick the landing it will easily be one of my favorite books of the year. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Oct 30, 2013

    ‘True Lives' isn't the best book on the shelf, but it may be the most ambitious, and that alone is worth a look. It doesn't always hit all the right notes, but if you're looking for a new world to dive into and have a couple bucks to spare it's always worth a pickup. Read Full Review

    Another great issue from the Killjoys, giving readers a couple of fun surprises. All of these characters are growing on me. Read Full Review

    There are positives, as is usually the case the artwork is very good and the ideas are interesting and new though as I've said not presented as well as usual though even that isn't universal. The exposition about the Destroya is pretty well conveyed through a sort of sacred android text called the Graffiti Bible, that's the kind of weird and evocative way to do exposition right in this story. Overall though I think this will just end up a hiccup in an overall very well written and very enjoyable series, I'm sure the next issue will be much better. If you're reading The Killjoys regularly you'll probably buy this issue either way but if you're thinking of jumping on I'd recommend going back and reading the previous issues first or waiting till next month's issue.

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Oct 30, 2013

    I could comment on the artwork, but there is nothing I can say about it. Becky Cloonan is a great artist and everything I've said about her work here in all of my reviews remains true. The art is good, but wasted here on a story that does have potential, but has so many problems going for it. 4.5The artwork is stellar as always.Korse's character has gone through developments.The main character's origin is pretty interesting and unique.The main character herself and the villains are kind of bland.The writing is lacking in many areas.Lacks impact and emotion for the audience.Trying to do too much with little time.
