This year marks the 10th anniversary of Nikki's New York Times bestseller, The Heroin Diaries, which takes you through the year that almost cost him his life during the recording & tour for Mötley Crüe’s 1987 album, GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS.

Now, Nikki and HEAVY METAL are proud to announce a graphic novel adaptation of this powerful book that gives insight and understanding to the deadly trap and temptation of addiction.

Fans visiting Comic-Con San Diego can get an exclusive first preview of the interior pages when visiting the HEAVY METAL booth #1529 at the convention through Sunday, July 23.

The Heroin Diaries has always been deeply personal to me. So when the idea came up for a graphic novel based on the story, who better to partner with than the iconic HEAVY METAL brand? I grew up reading their magazine as a kid. This is really a passion project and I’ve been intimately involved in every step along the way, from the story line to the look and feel of the art. Working with Jeff, Rantz and their team has been an inspiring experience and I think we came up with a really unique spin on The Heroin Diaries that tells the story from a different angle. It is meant to be a treat for fans of The Heroin Diaries, old and new and I hope everyone will enjoy the graphic novel as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you.” --Nikki Sixx
