Extrem genialer Comic. Besonders für Killjoys zu empfehlen, die wissen möchten wie es nach dem vierten Album von My Chemical Romance weitergeht ;)

Apocalypse, Androids, and AWESOME 12. Mai 2014
Von Pauline - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As some people may already know, the Killjoys comic is a continuation of the world first introduced by My Chemical Romance's album "Danger Days." But that doesn't mean you need to know any backstory before picking it up. This book embodies everything you could want in a post-apocalyptic story: Draculoids, rayguns, androids seeking health care, and body bags that double as sleeping bags in a pinch. Plus, Grant-friggin'-Morrison sneaks his way in under the guise of self-doubting villain, Korse. In a word, it's awesome. When's the movie?

Interesting continuation of Danger Days 27. Mai 2014
Von Ashley Ferguson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
*I received this book from Dark Horse Comics in exchange for an honest review*

I've always loved My Chemical Romance, and their last album ("Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys") is one of my favorite albums. So I was really excited when I found out that Gerard Way was going to continue the Danger Days saga in comic book form. Especially since it focuses on the Girl, who is only six during the time that the Danger Days music videos are set. What made her so special that the Killjoys were willing to sacrifice themselves to save her? What happens now that BLI has defeated the Killjoys? I just had so many questions!

This comic actually answers almost all of the questions I had, and a lot that I didn't even know I had. The art is phenomenal, and does such a good job of portraying this post-apocalyptic world. It's dark, but there are still bursts of color and hope for the people living in the wake of BLI's takeover. The Girl, who has been running from her past, is now forced to face it head-on, and her story was really interesting. I did not expect the reveal of why she was so special, but I think it pretty fitting.

I would probably rate this comic higher if the story was more cohesive. Eventually all the parts come together and everything makes sense, but I got really lost in the process sometimes and had to go back and make sure I wasn't missing anything. Maybe if there was an indication that we were changing perspectives or seeing what was happening somewhere else it might have been a little better? I don't know. I just got kind really confused more often than I should have/usually do, and had a hard time keeping up.

Overall, I would still recommend The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys to any MCR fans who are looking to learn more about the Killjoys, BLI, the Girl, and their world. I don't think it would translate well to anyone who hasn't really listened to MCR or seen the videos for their last few singles, but there is probably enough information to get by. I'll still probably be looking in to Gerard Way's other comic series though! A 3/5 for this one.

Hard to explain, fun to read 25. August 2014
Von Travis Starnes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have never really believed it when I was told that some concepts are hard to sell. I mean obviously it is hard to persuade someone that suicide is a good option, but I mean specifically when it comes to ideas about films or books. I actually like the film ‘John Carter’, but when you read about it you find that it apparently failed at the box office because Disney did not know how to market it and they got the name wrong (Warlord of Mars would clearly have been a lot better!). They must have done something wrong because it lost them a huge chunk of money and were it not for their acquisition of Marvel they might still be putting out some low numbers even today. Well until now I thought that concept was nonsense, of course you can explain an idea in a sentence, let the audience know what it is about and if you are really good at your job, make people want to buy into it.

Well I am not a marketing executive, but even if I was, I doubt I could sum this book up in a sentence. Heck I have read it twice and I struggle to even tell myself what it was about. Do not mistake my indecision for derision, this is a very accomplished comic, but it fits no genre I can imagine and the only way I can avoid using 3 paragraphs to describe it is by tapping into people’s knowledge of other stories. Therefore this book is – Pop culture in Lord of the Flies meets Ghost in the Shell, throw in a touch of a Star Trek episode called ‘Masks’ with Brokeback Blade Runner in a post apocalyptic future on the planet Wreckgar which is hiding Akira. Now if anyone follows all of those, then you are have the eclectic upbringing that I did and, for the record, are a massive nerd. Bizarrely that huge string of seemingly non sequitur concepts really does not cover everything in this book, I could fill a paragraph with the other concepts in it – 30 Days of Night, Lazarus, Iron Giant, Trainspotting, Good Morning Vietnam, Cyber Force, Dorian Grey – all of these form part of this book and many more. It is for want of a better notion a black-hole-sieve where 1000s of ideas are pulled in and small strings of ideas pass out the other side into a coherent story.

Anyone who likes science fiction, fantasy, manga or comics will find concepts in this book which you can connect with. In fact I would go so far as to say that even people like my wife would find concepts that are familiar and she hates all of the above! Now many of you will be thinking to yourselves, when is he actually going to tell us what happens in this book, I want to know if I should buy it. Well the answer is; I’m not; this book is utterly impossible to sum up and even harder to explain the story because so much of it is in the context. If I told you what the ‘story’ was then you would dismiss it as repetitious trash that you have seen before. Well all I can say is that you have never read anything quite like this before and if you are a fan of comics, then you should read this. Even if the only enjoyment you draw from it is an ‘ideas where’s Wally’ as you pick out the concepts and themes from your favourite series reworked and mashed into this book, it will be a worthwhile purchase.
It'll make you bleed 2. August 2014
Von Elaine D Harder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Like many, I am a fan of Gerard Way's work and and My Chemical Romance. To fellow fans not already in the know, this does not feature the Killjoys. It instead focuses on those left behind with their legacy and tragedy. It packs a punch and shows that while they're not around, their message is.

You finally get some answers for the questions the music videos gave you. Characters that did cameos in the songs are fleshed out with flaws, backstories and their own crusades.

A good story all around, but I agree with some of the other reviewers, it does leave some things open. Still very inspiring.
Blade Runner meets Mad Max--with masks and wild hairdos 1. November 2014
Von Jessica Draper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The intricate puzzle pieces of artwork, coloring, and story come together enjoyably, with an interesting philosophical twist at the end. Gerard Way sums it up perfectly in the afterword: "Real people don't have wars with sci-fi dystopian megaconglomerates. They get up and go to work. They show up on time, they live in the minute, and not in the fog present." But for reliving those teenage moments when it was you against the world, and having a fantastic outfit could make all the difference, it's a great companion piece to the "Danger Days" album.
