My Chemical Romance‘s Gerard Way is set to reissue his comic book series The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.
The musician, whose comic The Umbrella Academy was adapted for Netflix last year, originally released the books in 2013. They served as a follow-up to MCR’s 2010 album ‘Danger Days’.
Now, it’s been confirmed that publisher Dark Horse will put out a hardcover Library Edition of the series.
“I am beyond excited that my co-creators and I get to release this gorgeous edition of ‘The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: California’,” Way said in a statement.
