Forget everything you already knew about the Fabulous Killjoys! Writers Gerard Way and Shaun Simon, along with Illustrator Leonardo Romero (Hawkeye), colorist Jordie Bellaire (Redlands), and letterer Nate Piekos (The Umbrella Academy) team up to present an all-new modern day Killjoys series, as Way and Simon take it all the way back to the original story that inspired My Chemical Romance's concept album Danger Days and its dystopian comic book series in The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: National Anthem.

The Fabulous Killjoys, once a group of teenage exterminators determined to save reality, have lost their way--and their memories. After a period of mental confinement, former Killjoys leader Mike Milligram gets de-programmed and hits the road to bring the gang back together for a final showdown against an evil pharmaceutical corporation, their monstrous hitman, and savage gang rivals.

This oversized hardcover collects issues #1-#6 of National Anthem as well as a brand new eight-page Killjoys story exclusive to the hardcovers.
Gerard Way is a singer, songwriter, and comic book writer who is perhaps best known as the lead singer of the band My Chemical Romance. With My Chemical Romance, Way found fame and acclaim and toured with the band from 2001 to 2013. In addition to his music, Way is the Eisner Award–winning writer of The Umbrella Academy and The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.
