He says, "All my heroes were junkies,
Now all my heroes are dead 
I say, "Hey Tony, consider yourself lucky 
To be a junkie in a hospital bed"

Song All My Heroes Were Junkies - By Ellis Paul


The work is titled My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies. The summary is as follows:

Teenage Ellie has always had romantic ideas about drug addicts, those tragic artistic souls drawn to needles and pills have been an obsession since the death of her junkie mother ten years ago. 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.

I bet this beast will win several Eisner awards next year.
