The killer team of writer Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips is back, and this time, after hard-hitters sellers like Kill or be Killed, Fade Out, Fatale and Criminal (and much more, believe it or not) they bring us their first original Graphic Novel.
My Heroes have always been Junkies.
Bringing a breath of fresh air but without shining away from the noirish themes these two have brought us for so many years, My Heroes have always been Junkies deals with teenage obsessions, about how romanticism can sometimes lead to much darker roads that we expect.
“Sean and I have been talking about doing our version of a romance comic for a long time, so naturally it ended up being a crime story, too. But it’s one that allows me to mine some of my own pop culture obsessions and delve back into my teen years and the kind of trouble you can only get into when you’re young,” said Brubaker. “And coming off a long project like Kill Or Be Killed, it just felt like this was the perfect time for us to experiment with format and finally do an original graphic novel. We’re both very excited to be creating something that’s designed to be seen first in hardback. That’s a new one for us, in nearly 20 years of working together.”
