Unfortunately, at this year’s New York Comic Con, we had very little time to walk the show floor to see what it had to offer. However, when we did find some time to visit the main concourse, we were able to chat with a few very cool people at the Dark Horse Comics booth about a few excellent books.
In our first interview straight from the con floor, ScienceFiction.com got to chat with writer Shaun Simon and artist Becky Cloonan, who both worked on ‘The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys’ with former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way. During the discussion, we learned about how the two first got involved with the series, some of the thing that influenced it beside the album ‘Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys’, and whether or not the story could continue in the future. Check out the video below to see what these two had to say:
‘Killjoys’ remains one of the most interesting books to hit comic shops all year. Mixing ‘American Graffiti’ with a post-apocalyptic adventure apparently makes for quite an interesting story featuring excellent work from the creative team including Simon and Cloonan. It’s a shame that it’s only a miniseries, but hopefully they all join forces to bring us more stories from this universe.
Are you a fan of ‘The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys’? What do you think of Shaun Simon’s words and Becky Cloonan’s art in the books? Are you hoping to see more in the future after this series wraps? Let us know in the comment section and stay tuned for more of our ongoing coverage from New York Comic Con!
