As the fight for freedom fades, it’s left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI!

Review: ‘The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys’ # 2
While not quite on the same level as the debut, issue 2 manages to develop the story in some interesting ways and offers enough intrigue to earn your cash. Everything is detailed with such crisp clean visuals that are reminiscent of the best Japanese anime. Now with those influences in mind I feel as if I truly understand the magic of the book. There is a tremendous amount of heart in this creation. The world is expansive, and fully realized with emotion. The introduction of Cheri Cola puts a face to the near perfect disc jockey narration of the book. His teaming with the girl allows the story to slow down and get immearsed in the world.
The storytelling in them made me happy as a teen. In the message from author Shaun Simon, he reveals that My Chemical Romance ran out of money to make a thir. In the message from author Shaun Simon, he reveals that My Chemical Romance ran out of money to make a third video for the album this was their way of continuing the story. I honestly don't know how good this comic would be to someone who didn't know the background, the album. It's not necessarily required and key details are explained but it certainly helps. The gist of the plot is her finding out why the men who died for her died for her and discovering her place in the world.
Unfortunately, Way and Simon err on the side of failing to provide readers who aren't already invested or acquainted with the Killjoys enough information to ground them in world of Battery City and the Desert. This is only the second issue, and their world-building comes across as jumbled and needlessly complicated. Over 22 pages, there seven changes in time and place. While this disjointed storytelling technique adds to the chaotic mood and the tension between the City and the Desert, it is also disorienting. The sequence where a blue-haired girl battles with the bureaucracy for a life-saving battery is Kafkaesque in its futility and horror, but long lines and heartless indifference to individual lives are standard features of dystopias. In a similar way, Way and Simon's decisions regarding the central character simply called The Girl are irritating, because they haven't added anything to this standard trope of science fiction and fantasy. The Girl remains without a normal name because she is more an idea than a person, a "Chosen One" that is destined to do something special and so must be protected by a larger organization against villainous forces.
