    Some fun pop culture references aside (although, I could claim that the pop culture references here are ultra typical, and something you come across in every work that does not go deeper from the surface), My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies is the same ol' trope of femme fatale that se...

    Two junkies in rehab fall in love and get back into the habit. But one of them isn?t who they say they are? My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies, a ?novella?, is the first book in Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips? Criminal series, and their first collaboration in a long time, ...

    ?I was much too far out all my life And not waving but drowning??Stevie Smith My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies (Jeopardy: Related titles for 100? Cowboys are my Weakness, by Pam Houston; Cowboy Junkies) is yet another Brubaker-Phillips collaborative exploration into the Cr...

    Like most everybody who reads comics, I am a fan of the Brubaker/Phillips creative duo. So I am really sad to say that their new comic novella, My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies, is pretty bad. The story is about a girl who is placed in a rehab clinic against her will. There she me...

    Like all great noir, this story is devastating. Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips's return to the Criminal universe is thoughtful and restrained. My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies is original, nuanced, and right at home with other works from these creators. Familiar themes of drugs, crime...

    When it comes to graphic novels, Brubaker and Phillips are the dudes. My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies is a bit brighter, more colorful than their other work, but there's a grittiness and a darkness swimming under the surface ready to break out at any time. Rehab, drugs, fantasies ab...

    So I was going to wait a little before reading this, as in I was gonna read it because this creative team is fantastic but was not in as much of a hurry? then I heard it ties in with Criminal. Had to read it ASAP then. What?s it about? There?s a girl named Ellie who is a junk...

    Rozmejslel sem se mezi 4* nebo 5*, ale jakozto fanousek Criminal sem primhouril oko :). Kdyz sem videl rozporuplny recenze, tak sem se trochu bal, ale duo Brubaker/Phillips opet nezklamalo. Je to trochu neco jinyho, nejvic mi to pripomnelo posledni Criminal one-shot s Teegem a Tracy...

    When I picked this up I was pretty excited, so I can't help but feel a bit let down. Thankfully though, this duo still delivers a solid story just not one I hoped for. This is a story of a woman who's in rehab. Right away she begins to link herself to old musicians and their drug h...

    Always enjoy a dip into Phillips and Brubakers Criminal-verse, and this novella is a good addition to that world. ...

    3.5* Brubaker and Phillips have created a solid entry into their collection. Its a little more drama than crime noir. A simple love story set around a rehab centre with a twist. The art is perfect, really one of my fave artists doing what they do best. Thr story is a little short and t...

    My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies is a small hardcover comic from the pairing of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips.Who do really good stuff and this is also really good. It's well put together drawn really well except for some faces which I think look off. Color is a big thing here an...

    How did crime comics even exist before Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips came along? I know there were some--I was particularly fond of Collins? and Beatty?s Ms. Tree among others-- but Brubaker and Collins have been so ridiculously successful in the genre that modern readers can be pa...

    Celkem jsem rozmý?lel mezi 4 a 5, ale ono to zas tak t??ké asi nebude. Co jsem ?etl komentá?e, tak spoust? lidem se nelíbi, ?e má komiks idolizovat u?ívání drog. Tenhle problém jsem s tím nem?l - spí? mi p?i?lo, ?e ukazuje, jak si drogy zbo???uje hlavní ...

    Nice to see they can reenter the world years later without missing a beat. ...

    If you look at the entire bibliography from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips published under Image, from Fatale to Kill or Be Killed, they are stories within the crime fiction genre about ordinary people who find themselves stepping into the wrong side of the law and, in the process, losi...

    This book is so god damn good I wanted to read it again the instant I finished it the first time! It's short, so I can't say much without spoiling things, but despite the bright cover and the vibrant palette inside, this book is so wonderfully dark. It's perfect! ...

    A quieter outing from this team of comic masters, more reminiscent of earlier Brubaker like The Fall than the longer term work they?ve been doing. Beautiful as always, although the change in coloring took some getting used to, and thoroughly engaging, reminding me oddly of David Laph...

    I love the Brubaker & Phillips duo. One of the best GN teams out there. This felt a bit slight but it was beautifully illustrated. ...

    Pretty enjoyable ride. I was starting to worry if all my new purchases were bad ones. But my man Brubaker does what he does best. Modern crime. Amazing how he wrote a whole crime comic book that, if memory serves right, never features a gun. We have two great characters to follow and a...

    My only complaint was that it was a short one! heartbreaking, beautifully illustrated. Criminal always delivers. ...

    Brubaker and Phillips' latest claims on the back that it's a graphic novel, but inside is more honest: it's a novella. Even including covers and endpapers it's only 80 pages, so in terms of content, this is basically two issues' worth of comics. No skin off my nose, I read it for free ...

    Criminal story, but this time a little bit different, more intimate one. More about consequences and lives of people connected to underworld than actual crime. More talking and less, or better none, action. Story is unrolling slowly and even if you can guess ending pretty soon, it stil...

    3.5* Brubaker and Phillips have created a solid entry into their collection. Its a little more drama than crime noir. A simple love story set around a rehab centre with a twist. The art is perfect, really one of my fave artists doing what they do best. Thr story is a little short and t...

    Like most everybody who reads comics, I am a fan of the Brubaker/Phillips creative duo. So I am really sad to say that their new comic novella, My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies, is pretty bad. The story is about a girl who is placed in a rehab clinic against her will. There she me...

    Like all great noir, this story is devastating. Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips's return to the Criminal universe is thoughtful and restrained. My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies is original, nuanced, and right at home with other works from these creators. Familiar themes of drugs, crime...

    When it comes to graphic novels, Brubaker and Phillips are the dudes. My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies is a bit brighter, more colorful than their other work, but there's a grittiness and a darkness swimming under the surface ready to break out at any time. Rehab, drugs, fantasies ab...

    So I was going to wait a little before reading this, as in I was gonna read it because this creative team is fantastic but was not in as much of a hurry? then I heard it ties in with Criminal. Had to read it ASAP then. What?s it about? There?s a girl named Ellie who is a junk...

    When I picked this up I was pretty excited, so I can't help but feel a bit let down. Thankfully though, this duo still delivers a solid story just not one I hoped for. This is a story of a woman who's in rehab. Right away she begins to link herself to old musicians and their drug h...

    Always enjoy a dip into Phillips and Brubakers Criminal-verse, and this novella is a good addition to that world. ...

    3.5* Brubaker and Phillips have created a solid entry into their collection. Its a little more drama than crime noir. A simple love story set around a rehab centre with a twist. The art is perfect, really one of my fave artists doing what they do best. Thr story is a little short and t...

    My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies is a small hardcover comic from the pairing of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips.Who do really good stuff and this is also really good. It's well put together drawn really well except for some faces which I think look off. Color is a big thing here an...

    This book is so god damn good I wanted to read it again the instant I finished it the first time! It's short, so I can't say much without spoiling things, but despite the bright cover and the vibrant palette inside, this book is so wonderfully dark. It's perfect! ...

    A quieter outing from this team of comic masters, more reminiscent of earlier Brubaker like The Fall than the longer term work they?ve been doing. Beautiful as always, although the change in coloring took some getting used to, and thoroughly engaging, reminding me oddly of David Laph...

    I love the Brubaker & Phillips duo. One of the best GN teams out there. This felt a bit slight but it was beautifully illustrated. ...

    Pretty enjoyable ride. I was starting to worry if all my new purchases were bad ones. But my man Brubaker does what he does best. Modern crime. Amazing how he wrote a whole crime comic book that, if memory serves right, never features a gun. We have two great characters to follow and a...

    My only complaint was that it was a short one! heartbreaking, beautifully illustrated. Criminal always delivers. ...

    Brubaker and Phillips' latest claims on the back that it's a graphic novel, but inside is more honest: it's a novella. Even including covers and endpapers it's only 80 pages, so in terms of content, this is basically two issues' worth of comics. No skin off my nose, I read it for free ...

    A riveting look at addiction. Impeccably tight and beautiful. Brubaker and Philips prove yet again why they are one of the best working collaborators in modern comics. ...

    The ending left me a bit underwhelmed while the build-up wasn't really as engaging as I'm used to from this duo. It read like an introduction of characters or a first part to a larger story. ...

    Another fine entry in the ever-growing tapestry that is Brubaker and Phillips' collaboration, and more particularly, their series Criminal. Like most of their work, it's a twisty crime noir and a character study at the same time, and all the better for it. ...

    'Brubaker and Phillips' just has to be one of the biggest stamps of quality in adult comics. Here we get what they call a 'novella' ? a book that would fit in the Criminal world, and one coming at us as an original graphic novel, and not in monthly instalments. It's a marvellous piec...

    This book is so god damn good I wanted to read it again the instant I finished it the first time! It's short, so I can't say much without spoiling things, but despite the bright cover and the vibrant palette inside, this book is so wonderfully dark. It's perfect! ...

    A quieter outing from this team of comic masters, more reminiscent of earlier Brubaker like The Fall than the longer term work they?ve been doing. Beautiful as always, although the change in coloring took some getting used to, and thoroughly engaging, reminding me oddly of David Laph...

    I love the Brubaker & Phillips duo. One of the best GN teams out there. This felt a bit slight but it was beautifully illustrated. ...

    Pretty enjoyable ride. I was starting to worry if all my new purchases were bad ones. But my man Brubaker does what he does best. Modern crime. Amazing how he wrote a whole crime comic book that, if memory serves right, never features a gun. We have two great characters to follow and a...

    My only complaint was that it was a short one! heartbreaking, beautifully illustrated. Criminal always delivers. ...

    Brubaker and Phillips' latest claims on the back that it's a graphic novel, but inside is more honest: it's a novella. Even including covers and endpapers it's only 80 pages, so in terms of content, this is basically two issues' worth of comics. No skin off my nose, I read it for free ...

    Criminal story, but this time a little bit different, more intimate one. More about consequences and lives of people connected to underworld than actual crime. More talking and less, or better none, action. Story is unrolling slowly and even if you can guess ending pretty soon, it stil...

    Another fine entry in the ever-growing tapestry that is Brubaker and Phillips' collaboration, and more particularly, their series Criminal. Like most of their work, it's a twisty crime noir and a character study at the same time, and all the better for it. ...

    'Brubaker and Phillips' just has to be one of the biggest stamps of quality in adult comics. Here we get what they call a 'novella' ? a book that would fit in the Criminal world, and one coming at us as an original graphic novel, and not in monthly instalments. It's a marvellous piec...

    Another hugely enjoyable story from Brubaker and Phillips. You'll be disappointed if you go into this expecting the twisty plotting of their previous crime stories (although the CRIMINAL tie-in provides a powerful gut punch), as Brubaker is primarily interested here in exploring the ca...
