In this issue of The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, the fun is over, if there ever was any to begin with. “There is no room for love in Battery City.” That was made perfectly clear. So how long ’til this polluted city goes down?!
This issue really struck a lot of cords with me. Prepare to be pissed off, saddened, and disgusted; not only about the way life is with the BLI, but with a new character who is very much disturbed.
Life in Battery City is shitty for anyone with an actual heart, whether it be powered by battery or not. I never thought I would be so emotionally attached to porno droids! Theirs is a very sad and tragic story, but at least it’s in the name of love – which it seems the world after BLI needs a lot more of. They aren’t the only ones who have a bad run though. If you get sad easily, this issue will leave you distraught.
The Girl comes to a couple shocking conclusions as well. If I was in her shoes, I wouldn’t trust anyone after losing not only the people who raised me, but a true and trustworthy friend. If I were her, I’d take matters into my own hands. I’m not sure how this story is going to continue, but I’m hanging on every word until this Girl gets the revenge she deserves.
I am in love with this story. It’s dark, emotional, and very unforgiving. I can’t wait to see what happens once the real fight against BLI gets rolling. There is nothing I don’t love about this series, story, art, and all. This issue is an intense ride, and is worth picking up. Look for it on shelves at your local comic shop on 9/11 or buy the digital copy from Dark Horse.
