Thrillist's Best Comics & Graphic Novels of 2018
ED BRUBAKER and SEAN PHILLIPS-the bestselling creators of CRIMINAL, KILL OR BE KILLED, THE FADE OUT, and FATALE-present their first original graphic novel in paperback for the very first time!
Teenage Ellie has always romanticized drug addicts, those tragic artistic souls drawn to needles and pills, ever since the death of her junkie mother ten years ago. But when Ellie lands in an upscale rehab clinic where nothing is as it appears to be, she'll find another-more dangerous-romance, and discover how easily drugs and murder go hand-in-hand.
MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN JUNKIES is a seductive coming-of-age story, a pop and drug culture-fueled tale of a young girl seeking darkness... and what she finds there.
"Readers of postmodern pulp will enjoy this intense story and unapologetically cunning character." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Provides plenty of truly twisted twists and wraps up with a pulpy punch of an ending that's satisfying-and heartbreaking... a fine addition to a staggering body of work." -Library Journal (starred review)
"Like most CRIMINAL stories, there's a darkness, along with twists that cut to the core. Phillips' art utilizes a limited color palette that makes you feel the ideas that run through each scene, each of the narrator's thoughts and memories." -LAist
