Synopsis from dcuniverseInfinite.com: KILL YOUR BOYFRIEND is an over-the-top black comedy of rebellion and teen romance topped with a heady mix of random violence and dark humor. A British schoolgirl yearning for excitement joins up with an angry rebel boy intent on tearing down middle-class England.

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. What does title of the series tell us about the tone of the book? How does the title relate to either of the boyfriends in the story?
  2. The protagonist would often break the fourth wall explaining her actions throughout the story. Does this framing device help us understand the protagonist better or not? Explain.
  3. What can you infer about the themes of alienation and outsider culture in this series that could be influential in other Grant Morrison works?
  4. Do the changes of the protagonist throughout story change for her for the better by the end or not? Explain.
  5. Is Kill your boyfriend a cautionary tale or not? Explain.
