Cue a moment of personal nostalgia.
I was going through my sketchbook on Tuesday (while sitting in class) and found all of these sketches from 2010 / 2011. Masks, costume designs, designs for propaganda fliers… There are other pages, but I didn’t photograph those. Maybe I’ll scan them later.
Some of these masks actually got painted. Some of the fliers, I actually did end up making. The final costume I put together is slightly different, but the vest and skirt are still hanging in my closet, and I still own the (unpainted) boots.
Still… It’s a wonder I actually paid any attention to the lecture on Tuesday, after finding these.

My MCR Experience/Story/Whatever
(Submitted by E.H.)
[Again, to save on page stretching, I’ve added a “Read More” cut. -GA]
Well, I first heard MCR when I turned 13. The song was “Teenagers,” to be exact, I found it funny that I be introduced to this band and their badass style of music on the day I officially became a teenager with the song proclaiming how teenagers scare them. But that was only the beginning. A few years went by where I sorta lost touch from them (from 2006 to around 2009), but some of their songs had stuck with me and helped me really get into them again when my hiatus from their music ended. I was back into listening to them and I had decided that I was here to stay. It wasn’t long until I heard “SING” through an awesome app on my tablet and I wanted to hear more of their new stuff along with songs from previous albums (btw, I know most if not all of the songs on all four albums and cw). I was hooked, finding that their music did everything from soothing my hurting heart when my crush didn’t like me back to the feeling of empowerment when I bravely ended it with the love of my life after pain he put me through. What I’m saying is that the band did more than just prevent me from doing things like cutting or contemplate suicide, they were there for me like a best friend, a loving older brother, or even a compassionate and caring parent when I was down on my luck and felt alone.

New Article on the Killjoys comic with new artwork.
The miniseries picks up some time after the events depicted in the My Chemical Romance music videos, with the story focusing on the young girl rescued by the Killjoys from Better Living Industries. Within the narrative of the videos, it seems apparent our protagonists are those fighting against corporate power, though Way said those assumptions are up in the air.
“It’s really about this different story… between the bad guys and the good guys — are there any good guys or bad guys?” said Way. “When you read this book you’re going to assume that this big clean corporation are the bad guys, and all these punky-looking freedom fighters are the good guys, and I think that the story really explores that as well — who in fact is good at all. You basically have two extremes, and in the middle of these two extremes — one being about control and one being about total chaos — you have this girl. Both sides basically want this girl for their own reasons.”
