Today, the followers of the original Killjoys languish in the Desert while BLI systematically strips citizens of their individuality. As the fight for freedom fades, it’s left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI!“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.
