My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies Reviews

    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...

    ?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...

    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, ...

    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...

    The latest from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips is a short graphic novella about a young woman at a rehab clinic that is fascinated by drug addicts and forms a destructive relationship with another patient. It's a bit forgettable and I'd call it lightweight Brubaker/Phillips. But it does...

    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...

    Heart rending story, great semi-minimalist line art and colour art that?s undeniably ugly but is the closest visual representation of what the world looks like when you?re on morphine I?ve ever seen. Don?t do drugs, mmmkay? ...

    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...

    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 Phillips have been so ridiculously successful in the genre that modern readers can be p...

    Book blurb: A coming-of-age story, a pop and drug culture-fueled tale of a young girl seeking darkness ? and what she finds there. Ellie's an older teen whose junkie mother died, and ever since then she's been fascinated by the lives of artistic drug addicts. She knows them all. S...

    Brubaker makes a pretty standard crime story a little more interesting by having the lead character be a young woman who processes her messed up childhood as the daughter of a drug addict by idolizing musicians and singers who seemed to find greater creativity through their drug experi...

    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...

    An unrepentant junkie in rehab ruminates on the benefits of drug addiction and the artistic achievements of drug abusers. Until late in the book when we finally learn that she does in fact have an agenda. Despite being an explicit addition to the Brubaker/Phillips Criminal universe,...

    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! ...

    The story alternates between current events that have a mysterious layer only revealed at the very end and the main character's youth when she gained her appreciation of some of the greatest people, mostly artists, of the 20th century who were all drug addicts. It shows the lengths som...

    Well written and illustrated but somewhat boring. Saved by a decent ending. I never felt anything for the 2 main characters- I'm afraid I don't have much empathy for junkies. Ellie is way more developped than average but her weird fixation over drud-addicted artists, though interest...

    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...

    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...

    Book blurb: A coming-of-age story, a pop and drug culture-fueled tale of a young girl seeking darkness ? and what she finds there. Ellie's an older teen whose junkie mother died, and ever since then she's been fascinated by the lives of artistic drug addicts. She knows them all. S...

    Brubaker makes a pretty standard crime story a little more interesting by having the lead character be a young woman who processes her messed up childhood as the daughter of a drug addict by idolizing musicians and singers who seemed to find greater creativity through their drug experi...

    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...

    An unrepentant junkie in rehab ruminates on the benefits of drug addiction and the artistic achievements of drug abusers. Until late in the book when we finally learn that she does in fact have an agenda. Despite being an explicit addition to the Brubaker/Phillips Criminal universe,...

    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! ...

    The story alternates between current events that have a mysterious layer only revealed at the very end and the main character's youth when she gained her appreciation of some of the greatest people, mostly artists, of the 20th century who were all drug addicts. It shows the lengths som...

    Well written and illustrated but somewhat boring. Saved by a decent ending. I never felt anything for the 2 main characters- I'm afraid I don't have much empathy for junkies. Ellie is way more developped than average but her weird fixation over drud-addicted artists, though interest...

    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...

    This was weird. It was riveting and interesting. While I was expecting something to happen, I did not predict the twist. I wish it had been a little bit longer, but alas. ...

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

    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...

    The latest from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips is a short graphic novella about a young woman at a rehab clinic that is fascinated by drug addicts and forms a destructive relationship with another patient. It's a bit forgettable and I'd call it lightweight Brubaker/Phillips. But it does...

    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...

    The story alternates between current events that have a mysterious layer only revealed at the very end and the main character's youth when she gained her appreciation of some of the greatest people, mostly artists, of the 20th century who were all drug addicts. It shows the lengths som...

    Well written and illustrated but somewhat boring. Saved by a decent ending. I never felt anything for the 2 main characters- I'm afraid I don't have much empathy for junkies. Ellie is way more developped than average but her weird fixation over drud-addicted artists, though interest...

    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...

    This was weird. It was riveting and interesting. While I was expecting something to happen, I did not predict the twist. I wish it had been a little bit longer, but alas. ...

    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...

    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...

    The latest from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips is a short graphic novella about a young woman at a rehab clinic that is fascinated by drug addicts and forms a destructive relationship with another patient. It's a bit forgettable and I'd call it lightweight Brubaker/Phillips. But it does...

    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...

    Book blurb: A coming-of-age story, a pop and drug culture-fueled tale of a young girl seeking darkness ? and what she finds there. Ellie's an older teen whose junkie mother died, and ever since then she's been fascinated by the lives of artistic drug addicts. She knows them all. S...

    Brubaker makes a pretty standard crime story a little more interesting by having the lead character be a young woman who processes her messed up childhood as the daughter of a drug addict by idolizing musicians and singers who seemed to find greater creativity through their drug experi...
