Summary:

"Over a decade ago, the Killjoys, a team of revolutionaries, lost their lives while saving a mysterious young girl from the tyrannical megacorporation Better Living Industries. Today, the Killjoys live on in memory, if not belief, as BLI widens its reach and freedom fades. The Girl, now grown, reemerges and is put in the spotlight as a savior, a role she knows nothing about. But with the new revolution hell-bent on body counts, the Girl must look within herself to put an end to BLI once and for all. The first Killjoys series from 2014 is presented in a special oversized hardcover, with an expanded sketchbook section. Written by Gerard Way (The Umbrella Academy) and Shaun Simon and beautifully rendered by award-winning artist Becky Cloonan (Demo, Conan the Barbarian), The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys foretells a not-too-distant future where fear reigns and freedom falls." --Provided by publisher.
