My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies Review

My Heroes Have Always Been JunkiesMy Heroes Have Always Been Junkies by Ed Brubaker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Having dealt with someone who is addicted to meth I was very hesitant to read this when it came out based on the title. That is yes, judging a book by its cover, but I didn't feel up to dealing with the topic of drug addiction. When I finally picked this up I didn't really know what to expect. Despite it being a sensitive subject for me (which is why it is rated 3 stars instead of 4) I did enjoy the story, and would recommend it to anyone who likes Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, stories about addiction, or just an emotional story about always searching for the thing you cannot have.

Brubaker uses music in this original graphic very well, and it inspired me to create a playlist of all the music mentioned in the story. Here is the link for the Spotify playlist I created:

https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7ps...

Music can transport you to another world, and I would go as far as to say it is a much better drug than anything out there. The right song or the wrong song can change your perspective in an instant. It can move you to the dance floor. It can make you cry or smile or laugh. Music can be something that soothes or something that causes anxiety, but despite what it does to you it has a power that is unlike anything else. Ed Brubaker definitely knows this, and you can see it in the way the story unfolds, pulls you in, and just runs you through an emotional gauntlet. Check out the graphic novel, and my playlist to see for yourself.
