Brubaker and Phillips Deliver Their First Graphic Novel, My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies

My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies, the first original graphic novel from the award-winning and bestselling team Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips—the creative team behind Criminal, Kill or Be Killed, The Fade Out, and Fatale—will hit stores this October.

Ever since the death of her junkie mother, Ellie has been obsessed with famous drug addicts. Those tragic artistic souls drawn to needles and pills have been her angels and idols. But when Ellie lands in an upscale rehab clinic where nothing is what it appears to be… she’ll find another more dangerous romance, and find out how easily drugs and murder go hand in hand.

My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies will be presented in a gorgeous hardcover format and is sure to be a seductive coming-of-age story, a pop and drug culture-fueled tale of a young girl seeking darkness… and what she finds there.

My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies will be available in comic book stores on Wednesday, October 10th and bookstores on Tuesday, October 16th.
