The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #5 Review


Well here it is another awesome issue, are you ready? Read on.

“To put it as clearly as possible . . . there is something wrong with you and we are going to fix it.”

Better Living Industries works to reeducate Korse and is met with deadly consequences just as the Girl learns lessons from her forgotten past. The big battle is brewing in the sands of the desert as the Killjoys march on Battery City!”

Its not every day that you get to read a comic based on an album of a band but, then again, you never know what to expect with a comic book. Well, I have to say that this is a fun issue of the awesome series, The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. Lots is going on, the evil Better Living Industries is trying its best to oppress our hers and characters. First off, there is a lot that happens in this issue and that is something that I really enjoy. I have to say the character of Korse just proves to be more and more badass as the series goes 16709on and there is some great stuff with the character. Also, the Girl, is turning out to be nuts and awesome all wrapped into one. You have to read this issue.

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.

The art is great. Becky Cloonan is something to behold because she does an awesome job of showing the vibrancy and more for the story. They have someone that really understands the point and illustrates that very well.

Overall, it is a great. I like the way this is done and will be great for future issues. I give it a 5 out of 5.
