Editorial Reviews

Review

"Close readers of the creator's oeuvre will catch connections to their earlier series, Criminal, but this one still provides plenty of truly twisted twists and wraps up with a pulpy punch of an ending that's satisfying--and heartbreaking--on its own... this stand-alone novella is a fine addition to a staggering body of work." --Library Journal, starred review


"Readers of postmodern pulp will enjoy this intense story and unapologetically cunning character." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Round-One Knockout from Team Brubaker-Phillips
By Averie on October 16, 2018
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 (duh), and hopelessness are present, along with new insights into the collateral damage from the Criminal universe. This book is short—it took me less than 45 minutes to read, and I took it in at a leisurely pace. The art and writing are on point. The story is creative and novel. Overall, this is a must-have.
