Brubaker makes a pretty standard crime story a little more interesting by having the lead character be a young woman who processes her messed up childhood as the daughter of a drug addict by idolizing musicians and singers who seemed to find greater creativity through their drug experimentation and addictions.

If I had to pick my most favourite comic that I've read this week, it would probably be this one. Inside this beautiful and dramatic cover, is a story that you can really just feel in your heart. Ellie is someone who's had a hard life. Does she consider herself an addict? No. But she does go to group therapy sessions for addiction. She also lives full time in a rehab center. Will that stop her plans to live her life? I don't think so.
