The good: the shifts in art / artists depending on mood were interesting. Some beautiful, dark stuff in there.

The bad: the diary format didnt work well as a gn. Too disjointed; lacks the impact of the original text. The oversized format is overindulgent.

The ugly: the lettering is terrible. Embarrassing mistakes and typos. Some of the artists drew weird, poorly-done faces and bodies.

Recommended only as a mild curiosity. Not sure even die-hard fans would enjoy it.

I have been waiting for this order from Pledge Music for over a year. I forgot it was even coming until it arrived on my door step today. I've always loved Nikki Sixx, his music, his photography, his books. As a recovering heroin addict, I am a huge follower of The Heroin Diaries .

I sat down and read through this whole graphic novel in less than an hour. The illustrations were incredible and definitely graphic. They could possibly be triggering for someone new in recovery, but anyone who follows

This is the first graphic novel I have read, and I have a new appreciation for them. The images that went along with the diary entries really captivated the nightmare grasps of addiction holding Nikki. And, I loved how he was breaking the 4th wall in the beginning and in the intermission. ...more

Same old song and dance......shoot heroin, do cocaine, drink jack Daniel's and screw a bunch of groupies, rinse, lather, repeat.......not a lot of substance or thought went into "writing" this "book".....if that is what you want to call it. Yawn......

I am overwhelmed by Nikki, as I always am when I read his words of hope and encouragement. There's not much I can say, other than this holds a special place in my heart for friends I have lost to the battle against addiction.
