As the fight for freedom fades, it’s left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI!

This oversized deluxe hardcover edition collects issues #1-#5 of the 2014 series The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: California—the deluxe format also includes a slipcase designed by Tony Ong and an exclusive print by Becky Cloonan, the short story “Dead Satellites,” with the expanded sketchbook section from the limited edition!

It’s the book that has everyone saying “What am I looking at here?” “You should be ashamed of yourselves!” and “What is Dark Horse thinking!?” From acknowledged bad eggs Aubrey Sitterson (No One Left to Fight, The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling) and Tony Gregori (Deuce of Hearts, Karma Police), it’s the scifi detective story so dirty, so filthy, so repulsive it’ll turn your other comics yellow.

• Includes the special print single issue-exclusive backup “No Kings, No Masters” by Aubrey Sitterson and Goran Gligović!
