It all ends here, boys and girls, so Killjoys, make some noise! The Phoenix Witch rises, Destroya lives, and Korse is on the loose! If Battery City isn’t razed to the ground by the end of this issue, then we’re all dead. Check your BLI-issued heart monitors and make sure you have a pulse. If you do, you need this raucous finale!

    Unleash The Fanboy - Eric Bridges Jan 1, 2014

    The writing for this whole series has always been interesting and unique, something that I really enjoy. I mean it. This issue is no exception. It quick, witty, and super exciting, something that I can say really makes a different in this type of comic. I will say that you should watch out for more stuff to come from this particular writer.

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson Jan 2, 2014

    This is a grand conclusion to an equally grand story that, while ultimately rather simple, stands as shoulder-to-shoulder with the great teenage disillusionment stories of the past. This is the rage of a generation focused through Gerard Way's music and told as a story and it really works. The whole creative team, from Gerard Way and Shaun Simon to Becky Cloonan and even to Dan Jackson's colours and Nate Piekos' letters, have come together to tell a story that deserves to be recognised among the greats. If there is only one downside to “The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys” it's there are enough ideas contained within pages to have kept this story going for much, much longer. Not many comics finish with me wanting even more, but this one did. Read Full Review

    In conclusion, 'The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys' was an exciting combination of 'American Graffiti', 'The Road Warrior', and a My Chemical Romance record. It really speaks to a generation while providing an excellent bit of sci-fi without getting preachy. I certainly look forward to the next projects from this creative team as they are all superstars that are definitely going places. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Dec 31, 2013

    Overall, though, I would still recommend Killjoys #6; it's not the best end the series could have had, but it's still pretty damn enjoyable for all my complaints. The middle may have been a stronger portion of the series, but this issue still holds up well, especially in comparison to a lot of the other stuff I've seen come out this year. It's sort of like that old adage "always shoot for the moon, because even if you miss, you'll still land amongst the stars." Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Ani Gonzalez Dec 30, 2013

    Issues number 3 and 4 were a little slow but there is nothing slow about this one. It is fast paced, a war you know is going to happen, but what you really want to know is the outcome. It is a good finish for the general story of oppression and for The Girl. I would like to see more of Korse and Blue, also about the new Killjoys; we do not have anything on those characters, so maybe more issues to further describe the universe they are in would be nice. Cloonan's art is vibrant as usual; Dan Jackson, the colorist, does an amazing job with his art, the rebellious and "rock and roll" vibe of the book is consistent until the end. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jimbus_Christ Dec 31, 2013

    With all that in mind, its important to remember that Killjoys was a fantastic miniseries that evokes a world unlike anything else that hit the stands in 2013. The team of Way, Simon, and Cloonan have created a truly original American manga that oozes with style with every page. Read Full Review

    Culture Mass - Stephen Wilds Jan 5, 2014

    The ending was so abrupt in fact that it made the second half of Killjoys #6 much harder to enjoy, with quick fixes and a lack of explanation; once the "bomb" goes off, things fall apart. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Jan 6, 2014

    However, perhaps the characters aren't really the point here. B.L.I. was always meant to fall, and the heirs to the original Killjoys were always meant to triumph. As a symbol-heavy, go-all-out series, True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys is an easy-to-consume, joy-to-read treat. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Jan 6, 2014

    The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #6 is sadly not very good. It has a problematic ending that raised way too many questions, characterization as inconsistent, and other kinds of problems. I was more than willing to eat a big bowl of crow if the comic managed to turn everything around at the end, but sadly it didn't. As such, I cannot recommend this mini-series at all, having now seen it in its entirety. Read Full Review
