With just over a week to go until the premiere of the first issue of Gerard Way and Shaun Simon’s limited comic series The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: National Anthem, an exciting bundle package is now available for pre-order from Dark Horse Direct!

The bundle, which is pictured below in a prototype image, features an exclusive black and white variant cover for issue #1 of The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: National Anthem, drawn by Daniel Warren Johnson. It also includes a deluxe 11″x14″ lithograph of Daniel Warren Johnson’s artwork, colored by Mike Spicer. This high quality lithograph is printed on premier rose-colored paper with hints of white.

Observant fans will recognize the Trans Am that is featured front and center in the artwork, which bears a striking resemblance to the Danger Days car that Party Poison, Fun Ghoul, Jet Star, and Kobra Kid whipped around the post-apocalyptic California desert in.

The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: National Anthem is the story of the original Killjoy, Mike Milligram. Before Party Poison and the rest of the Fabulous Four were born with My Chemical Romance’s 2010 album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, and before Val Velocity and co. swept the pages of the 2013 comic series that expanded upon the Danger Days lore … there was another story — an idea that started it all. Simon and Way’s original plan for the Killjoys began in 2008, though it fizzled out before it could come to fruition. Now, over a decade later, the two have teamed up with the epic team of artist Leonardo Romero, letterer Nate Piekos, and colorist Jordie Bellaire to finally tell the story of Mike Milligram.

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.

Issue #1 of The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: National Anthem will hit shelves next Wednesday, October 14 via Dark Horse Comics. Check out our preview post to learn more about the upcoming series!
